Do you have a gum-filled smile and wish you could replace your missing teeth with a removable product? If so, Dr. Stephen Henry is happy to offer dentures in Foster City, California, that will make your wish come true!
We provide full and partial dentures to those who need to replace all or just a few of their missing teeth. These products have pink, gum-like structures that have false teeth attached to the side. To wear dentures, you place the product over your gums and suction it to the roof of your mouth, allowing it to represent your gums and teeth. Dentures give you the freedom you desire and the functionality you need. You can wear dentures throughout the day to eat and speak, and you can take them out when you go to bed, giving your gums the rest they need for the new day. If you would like further instructions on when and where you wear your dentures, please feel free to talk to our dentist at your next appointment.
Dentures might require a little bit of practice before you are completely familiar with the product, which is completely normal. We recommend eating small, soft foods when you begin using the dentures and gradually move up to the foods you would typically eat throughout the day. We also suggest speaking difficult words aloud to help your tongue become used to the new addition.
To talk to our dentist about dentures and whether or not they are the most beneficial product for you, call us today at 650-341-5656 and schedule an appointment!
