Adult tooth loss is a more common problem than many people realize. It can happen for a number of reasons, from gum disease to injury, to tooth decay. But there’s no reason to feel stuck with a less-than-stellar smile, especially since full and partial dentures are now more comfortable and natural-looking than before. Dentures allow us to improve our patients’ smiles in a way that will help restore both function and beauty. So if you’re unhappy with your missing teeth, it’s time to find out how dentures can help.
What Makes Modern Dentures Different?
Many people envision fake-looking, ill-fitting teeth when they hear the word “dentures.” But modern dentures are both more natural-looking and better fitting than their previous counterparts. By providing our patients with full or partial dentures, we’re often able to improve the appearance of their smiles, as well as the function of their bites. Lost teeth often result in malnutrition, but dentures can help restore a person’s ability to chew. Dentures can also help prevent further tooth loss, by helpting to maintain the remaining teeth’s alignment.
We can also use the dentures in conjunction with dental implants, dental bridges and dental crowns to offer the most natural-looking and most secure fit possible. During consultation we will address your options, as well as your cosmetic concerns.
How Do I Determine What’s Right for Me?
Depending on how many teeth you have lost, and where they are located, we can help to determine if full or partial dentures would be best for you. We’ll also address the underlying causes of your teeth loss, in order to ensure your overall oral health is maintained or improved.
The dentures we provide are custom-fitted and design to match your own teeth and gums. They are also removable, for your convenience.
