If you are interested in filling your gummy smile with the teeth you love and miss, Dr. Gilbert Fernandez is happy to help you find the smile you are looking for by giving you the option of wearing dentures!
We offer both complete and partial dentures in Albuquerque, New Mexico, that can either replace all or just a few of your missing teeth. These products have pink, gum-like foundations that have false teeth attached to the side. To place the complete denture, you will put it over your gums and suction it to the roof of your mouth. To place the partial dentures, you will put it into the gap of your mouth and will clasp it to the remaining natural teeth on both sides. These are both removable products that give you the functionality you need and the freedom you want. If you would like specific instructions on when and where to wear your dentures, we invite you to call our office and talk to your dentist.
These products do, however, take some time to get used to. We recommend eating small, soft foods when you begin using the dentures and gradually move up to the foods you would normally eat throughout the day. We also suggest speaking difficult words aloud to help your tongue become familiar with the products.
If you think dentures are the right dental options for you, give Gilbert Fernandez, D.D.S., Inc. a call and set up an appointment!
