Dentures are designed to replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you have lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
Dentures can replace several missing teeth or an entire dental arch, restoring the function and appearance of your smile.
So why should you choose dentures?
Dentures Make It Easier TO EAT, SPEAK, AND SMILE.
Take Years off Your Appearance
Designed to look like natural teeth, dentures can be customized to complement the shape of your face and improve the appearance of sunken cheeks and puckered lips.
Enhance Your Quality of Life
Dentures can renew your ability to eat comfortably, enunciate clearly, and chew properly. With a fully functional smile, you can enjoy life more completely.
Benefit from the Stability of Implants
You can elect to secure your dentures with dental implants. This solution keeps your dentures firmly in place and prevents the jawbone recession that occurs after tooth loss.

Dr Sohn Can Tailor YOUR RESTORATION TO YOUR NEEDS
Often a symptom of gum disease, your dentist may recommend addressing loose or shifting teeth by removing and replacing them with a custom denture.
I want dentures. But am I a candidate?
A Range of Conditions Can AFFECT YOUR CANDIDACY
For an implant-supported restoration, you must have enough jawbone tissue to support dental implants. A bone graft can restore lost tissue if you have experienced jawbone recession. Even for a traditional restoration, your doctor may recommend pre-prosthetic surgery to prevent issues and make your restoration fit more comfortably.
While early stages of gum disease can be easily treated, the condition can reach a point at which the solution may require tooth extraction. Once the teeth are removed, your gums can heal and a denture can replace the extracted teeth. You must be free of gum disease and tooth decay prior to receiving dentures.
Feelings of Self-Consciousness
If an incomplete smile is making you feel self-conscious, you should speak to your dentist about dentures. A restoration can improve both the appearance and function of your smile and allow you to feel more confident.
