Partial Dentures to Replace a Few Missing Teeth
If you are missing just a few teeth, you might wonder if it is necessary to do anything about it. Chances are, you are managing okay with a gap or two in your mouth. What you might not know, however, is that not taking care of these gaps is risking the health of the teeth still in your mouth.
When you don’t fill in the gap left by missing teeth, your other teeth will begin to shift. Soon your bite will be compromised, and you may find it more difficult than ever to chew. This can also lead to more tooth loss.
A partial denture is an excellent solution. Made up of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored, plastic base, the partial is attached to either healthy teeth or teeth that have been replaced by crowns.
You will be able to chew comfortably again, and you won’t have to worry about shifting teeth leading to more tooth loss.
Complete Dentures for Complete Tooth Replacement
If you are looking at total tooth replacement, complete dentures are a great option.
Gone are the days of dentures made from big plastic plates held in place by sticky adhesives. Today’s dentures fit better than ever. They are more stable and comfortable than ever before.
After you adapt to the dentures, you will be able to eat, speak, and laugh comfortably again. Dentures are more natural looking now than they were in the past, and people will probably not even know you are wearing them.
Implant-Supported Dentures Combine the Best of Two Worlds
Combining the stability of dental implants with the affordability of dentures, implant-supported dentures offer an excellent tooth replacement option.
Implant-supported dentures attach to dental implants that provide a stable base for the dentures. Because the dental implants integrate into your gums much the way your tooth roots did, the attached dentures will not move or shift. Knowing your dentures are completely stable can be a real confidence-booster.
Another advantage of implant-supported dentures is that there is no “facial collapse” as there is with traditional dentures. Facial collapse is the sunken-in look most denture-wearers eventually develop because their jawbone shrinks. When the bone is no longer stimulated by tooth roots, nutrients are no longer sent to the area. Dental implants help keep the bone healthy.
