After losing a tooth due to injury, disease, or extraction, patients desperately want a replacement option. Dentures are a solution that can denturesrestore the strength and fullness of your smile. Find out the denture options available from Dr. Sood at Sood Family Dental in Shelby Township, MI so that you will know what to discuss with your dentist.

What Are Dentures?
A denture is a device that fills or covers up gaps after there has been a significant amount of tooth loss. Dentures allow the patient to chew and enjoy food again. They also improve the overall aesthetics of the smile and can be designed to look very similar to a natural set of teeth. Dentures are often a suggested treatment when a patient has lost multiple teeth or the whole bottom or top row of teeth.

Your Denture Options
The great thing about a denture is that it is a unique custom dental device designed just for you. With proper fitting, it will fit like a glove. Here are the denture options you should discuss with your Shelby Township, MI dentist at your next appointment:

- Partial dentures that fill gaps in the smile.
- Conventional (full) dentures.
- Implant-supported dentures (two or more dental implants anchor the denture).
- Bridges (similar to dentures except they use crowns on adjacent teeth for support).

Denture Maintenance
Once you have dentures it is important to keep up with good dental hygiene to avoid issues with your gums and any remaining teeth. Observe these denture maintenance tips:

- Clean and soak your denture each night to minimize bacteria.
- Use a denture brush when cleaning the device.
- Brush your gumline, remaining teeth, and tongue regularly with a soft toothbrush to remove food particles and plaque. Floss around remaining teeth.
- Visit the dentist twice a year for checkups and have the denture adjusted when needed.
