If tooth decay and gum disease have left you with several lost or compromised teeth, it can have a serious negative effect on your quality of life. Beyond impairing your ability to chew food, these missing teeth can also cause you to slur your speech and feel self-conscious about your appearance, affecting your self-image and self-confidence.

In a situation like this, your Shaia Dental Care dentist, Dr. Anthony Shaia, may recommend having most or all of your remaining teeth extracted in preparation for fitting you with a custom pair of dentures.

Dentures in Parma Heights, Ohio, are designed to look like real teeth. They are made of false teeth that have been set into a pink base that mimics the natural appearance of your gums. This effectively restores the full function and appearance of your teeth.

Once any remaining teeth have been extracted, your dentist will cast a detailed impression of your gum structure. This impression will be sent to a professional dental lab to serve as a guide for the technicians who build your custom dentures.

If you have several missing or if you have compromised teeth, we invite you to call Shaia Dental Care at 440-884-9898 to see if you’re a good candidate for custom dentures.  We are always happy to help you restore your healthy, confident smile!
