If you have suffered an accident or have lost teeth due to age, adjusting to life without your full set of teeth can be a difficult transition. For many people, dentures provide a level of comfort and functionality that is necessary to maintain the use of their other teeth or to prevent their cheeks and the area around their mouth from sinking in.
Our Winchester cosmetic dentist at Amherst Dental Practice can thoughtfully and carefully develop a set of dentures that is customized to meet your needs. The dentures we create for you can help restore the full function of your bite and fit comfortably.

What Are the Advantages of Dentures?
To start the denture process, we will take an impression of your and use that to create a model of your teeth. Your dentures will be cast and created and we will try them out to see how well they fit in your mouth. We will then make any necessary adjustments to ensure that they are functional and comfortable.
At Amherst Dental Practice, our Winchester dentist only uses the services of good labs to create molds and casts because we know their work is dependable and meets our high standards. It’s our goal for you to have a comfortable new set of dentures that works and feels the way you want them to.
An ideal candidate for dentures typically falls into one or more of the following categories:
Missing Teeth: Individuals who have lost several or all of their natural teeth are good candidates for dentures. Dentures can restore their ability to chew and speak properly, as well as improve their smile and facial appearance.
Adequate Jawbone Structure: Dentures rely on the support of the jawbone and gums. Candidates should have sufficient jawbone structure to provide a stable foundation for the dentures. In cases where the jawbone has resorbed significantly, bone grafting or alternative tooth replacement options may be considered.
Good Oral Health: It is important for candidates to have a healthy mouth, free from active gum disease or severe decay. Any existing oral health issues should be addressed before denture placement to ensure the best possible outcome.
Realistic Expectations: Ideal candidates for dentures have realistic expectations regarding the appearance, function, and maintenance of dentures. They should understand that dentures may require adjustments, regular cleaning, and occasional replacements over time.
Commitment to Oral Care: Candidates should be willing to commit to proper oral care and hygiene practices. Regular cleaning of the dentures, along with maintaining a clean and healthy mouth, is crucial for oral health and the longevity of the dentures.
It's important to note that each individual's case is unique, and a thorough examination and consultation with a dental professional is necessary to determine their eligibility and the most suitable treatment plan. Dentures may not be the best option for everyone, so contact our dentist in Winchester to learn more.
