When patients are missing teeth, Dr. Nicas Yiannias provides his patients in Portage with dentures for a renewed smile.
PORTAGE, IN, February 27, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As a leading dentist in Portage, Dr. Nicas Yiannias of Relaxed Dentistry works with his patients to provide restored smiles with dentures when teeth are missing. While many people think of dentures as "false teeth," new advances in dentistry today have allowed Dr. Yiannias and other dentists to provide dentures that are anything but artificial looking.
Today, Dr. Nicas Yiannias can hand craft dentures to closely match each individual patient's natural teeth and make improvements in the appearance of his or her smile. Advanced materials used to fabricate the dentures are more comfortable, more durable and better fitting than ever before.
As with any new dental appliance, it may take time for patients to adjust to their new smile in Portage with dentures. Learning to chew and speak with new dentures will take a little practice, but patients will experience a multitude of benefits with their new teeth. In order to help the mouth muscles adjust and ensure a smooth transition, Dr. Yiannias recommends that patients start off by eating soft foods.
In order to maintain the natural smile that dentures can provide, Dr. Nicas Yiannias urges his patients in Portage to care for dentures as if they were their natural teeth. Patients should:
- Clean their dentures regularly using a specially designed denture toothbrush
- Continue to practice good dental care, brushing the gums, tongue and palate daily to remove plaque
- Avoid biting directly into hard foods
- Soak and clean dentures overnight
- Eat a healthy diet
- Handle dentures carefully so not to drop them
- Visit Portage dentist, Dr. Nicas Yiannias regularly for checkups and contact Relaxed Dentistry with any problems or pain
