Are you missing most or all of your permanent teeth? If you would like to restore the beauty and function of your smile, ask Dr. Pape or Isle Smile dentists about dentures in Key West, Florida. Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. Our office offers both complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing and partial dentures are used when you still have some of your natural teeth. Implant-supported dentures are more stable and are closer to the feel of your original teeth.
Making dentures is a complex process that takes several weeks and a few appointments. After our dentists decide which type of denture is right for you, they will make impressions and take measurements of your jaws and how they relate to each other. Models, wax forms, or plastic patterns will be constructed in the same shape as your future dentures from these measurements and impressions. Our dentists will have you try on these models so adjustments to the color, shape, and fit can be made. Your final dentures will be made after everything is satisfactory. Any final adjustments will be made as needed.
We invite you to contact Isle Smile today to learn more and to schedule your next appointment.
