Replacing missing teeth with dentures

Replacing missing teeth must be done as soon as possible. This is recommended for many reasons. First, missing teeth leave large spaces in the dental arch, which can cause the existing teeth to shift out of place. This requires orthodontics to address, which can be expensive and embarrassing. Missing teeth can also reduce the ability to eat and speak properly, as well as cause individuals to feel self-conscious about the way they look when they smile and talk with others. In order to restore the beauty, health, and function of the smile, patients are encouraged to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Some individuals choose dentures as a solution to their problem.

Dentures are a wonderful method of tooth replacement for patients who are seeking a removable restoration as well as one that is economical. Dentures are typically much more affordable than alternatives such as bridges and dental implants. They are easy to snap in and out of the dental arch for easy care and cleaning. Two types of dentures are available – full and partial. When patients are missing all their teeth in an arch, they require full dentures, which integrate false teeth and gums to replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are for individuals missing one tooth or several teeth within the dental arch. They are similar to orthodontic retainers. The false teeth slide into place when the denture is snapped into the dental arch. Both are effective ways of addressing tooth loss without “breaking the bank.”

Dr. Terry Vines and the team of Pure Gold Professionals in Dentistry encourage patients to take the time to learn more about dentures. Over the years, many patients have developed negative thoughts about them due to the ones they remember their grandparents wearing, which usually looked fake and ill-fitting, but dentistry has come a long way and dentures today look natural and beautiful. Contact our team of professionals today to learn more about dentures and determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for placement. We also discuss with patients any alternative options available to ensure they make an educated decision regarding their tooth replacement.
