Dentures are a solution of last resort. Many
people assume that they will need dentures as
they age, but losing teeth is not a normal part
of the aging process. If you care for your teeth
well and guard against periodontal (gum)

for a lifetime.
Saving even a few natural teeth is often better
than losing them all. Natural teeth or even
parts of natural teeth can help you retain bone
in your jaw and can act as stable supports for
bridges, overdentures or removable partial
dentures. Your dentist will try to save as many
of your natural teeth as possible.
The good news is that dentures aren't what they
used to be. With newer materials and improved
technology, Casula Denture clinic can fashion
dentures that fit comfortably, appear natural
and help you stay healthier.
Denture problems, such as clicking, slipping,
frequent gum irritation and odor, are signs your
dentures may not be fitting properly and may
need to be adjusted, relined or remade.
