Tooth loss and other oral health problems are common parts of the aging process, but dealing with these issues can be frustrating for anyone. At Jacksonville Center for Prosthodontics and Implant Dentistry, our goal is to help you navigate these waters as smoothly as possible so you can keep showing the world your smile.

Why Dentures?

If you have lost most of your teeth and are experiencing bone volume loss as a result, full dentures may be the right solution for you. Unlike other tooth replacement options, dentures rest on your gum line and are easy to remove if desired. This arrangement enables you to enjoy the use of a complete set of teeth without having to undergo expensive or invasive procedures

After tooth loss, bone structure and volume continue to deteriorate over time. This may make it necessary for you to get your dentures refitted every seven to ten years. Fortunately, the denture fitting process is simple and can be taken care of within a few days.

Getting Fitted

Once you and your prosthodontist have determined that full dentures are the best option for you, you will get fitted using the following process:

  • A mold is made of your mouth to ensure that your dentures will fit perfectly.
  • Using the mold, your dentures are constructed from durable and realistic-looking materials.
  • You are fitted with your dentures and are free to get on with your life.

Smile From Ear to Ear

You have lived a long, full life, and you deserve to smile about it. Do not let missing teeth or reduced bone volume stop you from displaying your happiest self. As a leading prosthodontist in the Jacksonville, FL, area, Dr. William Gielincki is equipped to fit you with a complete set of dentures, giving you the confidence to eat, chat and smile the way you always have.
