Losing your teeth can be a devastating event. It affects your oral health, your confidence, and even your overall wellness. Regardless whether you are missing one, or all, of your teeth, restoration is important to reestablish oral health and improve your confidence. At Pure Gold Dental, Dr. Vines and the team offer several options for patients facing teeth loss in the Redlands area. While often thought of as “old school” dentures have a longstanding history of being a stable, viable solution to replace missing teeth.
Dentures have actually been around for centuries. When they first appeared, the teeth in dentures were made from human or animal teeth. Even when they started being fabricated with porcelain, the first models of dentures were hard to wear and uncomfortable. Advancements in dental technology have allowed dentures to evolve into a natural-looking and comfortable solution.
Dentures are no longer the fake teeth that we remember our grandparents wearing. They are durable, functional, and beautiful. At Pure Gold Dental, we take steps to ensure that our dentures fit well and provide our patients full functionality along with a beautiful smile. We also offer dentures secured by dental implants. For patients looking for the most secure, long-term solution, dental implants are a great option. The rods are surgically placed into the jawbone to create a foundation similar to a natural tooth root.
Once you receive your new dentures there is a bit of a learning curve, but with a little time and patience, you will overcome the challenges and be well on your way to enjoying your new set of teeth. It is important to give your mouth and gums time to adapt. Soon, your mouth and muscles will learn to work with them and you will be able to bite, chew, and speak with ease.
The team at Pure Gold Dental is ready to help you move on after tooth loss. If you are ready to learn more about your options and restore health and beauty to your mouth, call us today at [phone] for your risk-free consultation.
