If you are missing teeth, you are not alone. More than 20 million people in America are edentulous or without teeth. Missing teeth are not only unattractive, collapsing your face and causing you to look far older than you need to, they are unhealthy, sometimes leading to serious problems. So, the obvious solution is dentures. What many people don’t realize is that not all dentures are created equally. Most are ill fitting and uncomfortable, not to mention unattractive.
The dentures Dr. Fitch offers are precision made, precision fitted and are not only comfortable but look, feel and function much more like natural teeth. To ensure the comfortable fit and function we use TENS to stimulate and relax the jaw muscles. Only when the muscles are fully relaxed do we measure your bite using a sophisticated jaw-tracking computer (K7) to determine the optimal positioning of your bite. This allows us to return your bite and your smile to what it should have been.
Sometimes we can add implants to enhance the retention even more. When the measurements are complete, we will custom create dentures that simulate teeth in their ideal state. They are so natural looking that often, no one can distinguish them from your own teeth. In addition, most patients find that they experience less pain, cramping and fatigue than with conventional dentures and that they no longer need dental adhesives to keep our dentures in position!
