How do dentures work?
Dentures are made from a gum-colored plastic reason which is fitted over the alveolar (bone) ridge that held the teeth. Dentures use high quality prosthetic teeth that look, function and feel just like the real thing. Because dentures are held in place by the suctioning effect of their close fit against the alveolar ridges, it is crucial that you have them fitted by an experienced and skilled dentist. You can also have dentures that attach to dental implants for a rock-solid bite and fit. Mize Implant and Family Dentistry can make certain that your new dentures fit perfectly and are fully functional and comfortable.
