At Smyrna Dental, we offer a range of services for our patients in the community of Smyrna, Georgia. Options include restorative dentistry. We can restore the smile’s appearance, structure, and function with restorations like temporary dentures. A temporary denture is a tooth replacement alternative that the patient can remove. True to its name, this denture is not permanent. It is often recommended when patients are considering a more long-term or permanent tooth replacement option.
The purpose of a temporary denture is to replace teeth in the smile for a specific period. Often, it is not a long-term solution. Instead, provisional dentures allow for support in healthy chewing and speech until they can afford or obtain a more permanent option. Drs. David Lamothe of Smyrna Dental may recommend a temporary denture until a permanent denture can be fabricated.
The advantages of temporary dentures include:
A temporary denture is prepared by using impressions or models of the teeth. This step guides the fabrication of the denture. The denture is based on the specifications of your mouth. Adjustments can be made as needed to ensure an appropriate fit. Dental insurance plans often cover temporary dentures. So, bring your insurance information with you. Our office can help to remove financial barriers to a comfortable, healthy, confident smile.
