Chronic problems with tooth decay and gum disease can sometimes result in the loss of multiple teeth. As the years go on, the problems can become progressive and can significantly compromise your ability to chew food. It could even slur your speech and leave you with an unappealing smile.

To address all of these issues and restore the full function of your mouth, your dentist, Dr. Albert Mendez, might recommend having most or all of your remaining teeth extracted. This is a preparatory step for fitting you with a custom set of dentures.

Dentures in Pittsburg, Kansas, are false teeth that have been set into a pink base that mimics the natural appearance of gums. This effectively restores the full function and appearance of your teeth.

After any remaining teeth have been extracted, Dr. Albert Mendez will cast a detailed impression of the structure of your mouth. This will be sent to a professional dental lab to serve as a guide for building your custom dentures.

If you have several compromised teeth, you should call Mendez Family Dental at 620-231-6070 to see if you’re a good candidate for dentures.
