When chronic issues with tooth decay compromise many teeth and impair the function of your mouth, it can have a serious negative impact on your quality of life. In a case like this, Dr. Barbara Lewis-Heywood will often recommend fitting you for a custom pair of dentures.

Dentures in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, look and function like natural teeth. The false teeth are set into a pink base that mimics natural gum tissues. Because the dentures are shaped from a detailed impression of your mouth, they will fit to your gums tightly. At the same time, many denture wearers also like to use a little denture adhesive to provide an extra hold. It also blocks stray food particles from being trapped awkwardly along the gums.

Should any food particles work their way in, you should thoroughly rinse your dentures to wash away food particles and residual adhesive. You can then dry them with a clean paper towel to provide a fresh surface so you can reapply fresh denture adhesive.

If you have multiple compromised teeth in your mouth and you’re interested in finding a way to restore the lost function, please call Riverside Dental & Beauty Spa at 505-219-0594 to schedule an appointment with our dentist to see if you’re a good candidate for a custom set of dentures.
