Complete dentures are designed to replace all of your teeth and restore function and facial structure. Traditional full dentures are removable, so you can take them out during sleep and clean them.
You will be able to eat with your new teeth; however, most patients experience a learning curve when they first start using their dentures. A snug fit is important so you don't experience slippage when you eat, chew, talk, or laugh, and it can take time and maybe some adjustments with your Tampa dentist to get used to this.
Another option for full denture-wearers is to use dental implants to support their denture, so they don't experience any slippage and denture movement. Your Tampa dentist carefully places four dental implants that your denture is designed to fit into. The dental implants secure the denture and hold it in place, while also protecting your jawbone from the deterioration occurs with tooth and root loss.
