As you age it's possible for chronic problems with gum disease or a long history of tooth decay issues can severely compromise multiple teeth in your mouth. Having a significant number of lost or compromised teeth can have a serious negative effect on your quality of life. Beyond simply impairing your ability to chew food, these problematic teeth can also cause you to slur your speech and feel self-conscious about your appearance.

In a case like this, our dentists often recommend having most or all of your remaining teeth extracted in preparation for fitting you with a custom pair of dentures. It might be that you only need your upper teeth or lower teeth replaced, while others might need both their upper and lower teeth replaced by dentures.

Dentures are designed to look like real teeth that have been set into a pink material that mimics the natural appearance of gums. This effectively restores the full function and appearance of your teeth. Once any remaining teeth have been extracted, our denturist, Randy Clasen, will cast a detailed impression of your gum structure to serve as a guide for building your custom dentures.

If you have several compromised teeth and you are interested in dentures, we invite you to call Artistic Dental in Roseburg, Oregon today at (541) 673-2724 to schedule an appointment. Together we will keep your smile healthy and confident!
