Is it Time to Explore Dentures as an Option?

If you’ve been living with tooth loss for some time, it can become the new status quo. It’s natural to adapt to your surroundings and circumstances. Maybe you’ve become accustomed to chewing and eating without the aid of all of your teeth. Perhaps you’ve taught yourself to smile without opening your mouth for fear of showing off your missing teeth. Whatever adjustments you’ve made during tooth loss, maybe it’s time to adjust for the better. There are dental prosthetic options that can effectively replace missing teeth, returning your smile and ability to the eat the foods you enjoy. If you’re missing a significant number or all of your teeth, maybe it’s time to explore dentures as an option.

Dentures Are an Option for Partial and Complete Tooth Replacement

While a bridge can help you replace a couple of damaged or missing teeth, when the tooth loss is extensive, dentures provide a better option. When you decide on a set of dentures, they will be custom-crafted to fit the shape and size of your mouth. That means they’ll have a more lifelike appearance. The replacement teeth are typically crafted with dental porcelain and supported by a discreet base. Partial dentures are also custom-crafted to fit around any remaining healthy teeth.

Dentures Can Be Enhanced with Dental Implants

While dentures are an effective way to replace the appearance of your teeth, they typically don’t restore the full bite power that you had before. In order to enhance your full or partial dentures, your dentist may recommend adding dental implants (cylindrical posts that replicate a tooth and strengthen the jaw bone). These implants can make your dental restoration even more effective.
