When you first receive your dentures in Arlington from Dr. Baldwin, we take extra care to provide a custom fit. We also make any adjustments to ensure the fit is perfect. And while your dentures will look completely natural, there are a couple of things they cannot do, such as react to changes in the shape of your mouth or repair themselves in case of breakage. In either of these instances, you need to return to your dentist in Arlington to take proper care of your dentures.

Are you ready for new dentures? Then, you may want to consider recycling your old dentures.
Well, sort of.
Cosmopolitan Magazine recently reported on an Etsy seller that creates hair combs and bracelets from old dentures. Just think—the grandkids can have the pleasure of your smile with them all the time!
But seriously, dentures are a terrific way to keep that smile for yourself and enjoy all the foods you love to eat. Whether you need partial, full or implant-retained dentures, your dentist can help you select the prosthesis that suits you best.

Dentures can make all the difference in the world for someone with missing teeth. They look better, they feel better and they are able to enjoy a variety of foods again.
But one thing no one enjoys is bad breath, or halitosis. And don’t think that just because you’re wearing dentures means that you’re immune to a foul order in your mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacterial growth, and dentures are just as susceptible to this as your natural teeth.

Whether you are a new denture wearer or you’ve been wearing dentures for several years, you should not only be happy with the appearance of your smile but also with the way your mouth feels. Ill-fitting dentures are more than a nuisance. They can cause embarrassment if a denture should happen to slip while you’re talking or eating. And if they rub against delicate gum tissue, then irritation and sores can be an oral health threat. Dr. Baldwin has been providing well-fitting dentures in Arlington for many years. If your dentures need adjustment or if you’d like to consider implant-retained dentures, then the team at Foundation Dental Solutions can help!

Patients with one or more missing teeth often decide to forego replacement due to time, money, fear of pain, and other valid concerns. However, the cost of skipping this treatment may just be your dental health. Missing teeth have numerous consequences including dental drift (the shifting of teeth to fill in gaps), lost bone density, and changing facial shapes due to diminished gum tissue volume. At Foundation Dental Solutions, our expert team offers a variety of tooth replacement options to meet any needs. We believe in offering patients the right solutions to their oral health problems, and we say so right in our name.
