Our team at Powell Boulevard Dental is thrilled to offer dentures to those who are missing all or just a few of their teeth.
We currently provide complete and partial dentures in Portland, Oregon, that give you the functionality you need and the freedom you want. These products are removable and you are able to wear them at any time you feel is necessary. These dentures have pink, gum-like foundations that have false teeth attached to the side. To place the complete denture, you will put it over your gums and suction it to the roof of your mouth. To place the partial dentures, you will put it over your gums and clasp it to the remaining teeth that lie on both sides of the gap. These are both great products that replace your gums and missing teeth.
Dentures do, however, take some time to get used to. When you first begin using the dentures, Dr. Denise M. Walthour recommends eating small, soft foods and then gradually moving up to the foods you would normally eat throughout the day. Your dentist also suggests speaking difficult words aloud to help your tongue become familiar with the new addition in your mouth.
