When you are ready, you should strongly consider scheduling dental restoration consultation with the specialists at H. Michael Long, DDS. During this appointment, Dr. H. Michael Long and our associates can help you understand your options for restoring the basic function of your mouth.
One easy way to replace the full function of your mouth without the use of oral surgery and dental implants, is to have Dr. H. Michael Long fit you for a partial denture. This is a miniature form of dentures that will be designed to fit tightly with the underlying gum structure. It might also include some locking hardware to help give it extra firm hold with the neighboring teeth.
The unit is easily removable. Once it has been secured in place, the partial denture will replicate the basic appearance and function of the missing teeth. You might want to use a little denture adhesive to secure the partial denture in place and block out food particles.
To fit you for your partial denture, Dr. H. Michael Long will cast a detailed impression of the void left by your missing teeth. This will be sent to a dental lab to guide the dental technicians in creating the removable dental appliance.
