Welcome to Krupka Dental Associates online! Did you know that chronic issues with gum disease and tooth decay can severely compromise the full function of your mouth? Beyond simply impairing your ability to efficiently chew food, it can also cause you to slur your speech and leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile.
In a case like this, our dentist, Dr. John N. Krupka may recommend restoring the full function and appearance of your mouth by fitting you for a custom set of dentures. It might be that you only need to have your upper or lower teeth replaced. However, it’s just as likely for you to need to have both sets of teeth replaced.
To do this, any other remaining teeth will also need to be extracted to allow the new dentures to fit securely to the structure provided by your gums. Dr. John N. Krupka may want to take a few x-rays to get a clear understanding of your underlying jaw structure. A detailed impression of your mouth will be cast and sent to a dental lab to be used as a guide while creating your permanent dentures.
Your dentures can be secured in place using denture adhesive, which will also help to block food particles from working their way between the gums and dentures.
If you have multiple missing or compromised teeth in your mouth, we invite you to call our Krupka Dental Associates team in Kaukauna, Wisconsin today at 920-766-1122. We are here to help you maintain your healthy, confident smile!
