Missing teeth seriously detract from one’s quality of life. Common tasks like biting, chewing, and speaking become trials, and you lose confidence in your appearance. Replacing these teeth is a necessity. And dentures will help.
Whether you’ve tried dentures in the past, or are seeking them out for the first time, we’re eager to help you embark on a fresh phase of tooth replacement. Modern dentures may surprise you with their competence. In past decades, dentures were made with inadequate materials and techniques, leading to their fit being off and their appearance being clearly false. Today’s dentures enjoy technological and aesthetic advances. They fit well, feel stable, function admirably, and look natural. If dentures have disappointed you in the past, we urge you to try again with contemporary replacement teeth.
Benefits of Replacing Missing Teeth with Dentures
While the most obvious benefit of replacing missing teeth is a restored smile, there are other advantages of which patients aren’t as aware. Those replacing missing teeth will enjoy
- Improved oral health
- Improved periodontal health
- The remaining teeth stay in place, rather than shifting
- Prevention of the collapse of facial structure and premature aging
- An accompanying boost in self-esteem
In order to get the most out of your tooth restoration, consider pairing dental implants with dentures for enhanced stability.
Partial dentures are right for patients missing a number of their teeth, but not the majority. If you’re not quite ready for the full commitment of dentures, partials will replace your teeth while allowing you to keep your remaining teeth.
Partials replace multiple teeth by drawing on the support of adjacent structures. A partial will usually consist of false teeth attached to an inconspicuous, gum-colored plastic tray that spans the palate. A metal framework may also be a component, to hold the tray in place. The partial is removable for cleaning and easy care; a fixed partial is also a possibility and is known as a dental bridge.
Dentures and partials allow you to regain your former life with a full set of teeth. You’ll feel and look more youthful, and once again enjoy the daily activities that require functional teeth. Don’t live another day in frustration – get in touch to talk tooth replacement.
