Tooth loss presents major challenges, including difficulty chewing, speaking and smiling. From a cosmetic standpoint, the issue can ruin a smile. And if tooth loss is left untreated, it leads to facial structure loss, jawbone deterioration, bite imbalances and shifting teeth. For these reasons, it is important to visit an experienced and knowledgeable dentist to deal with tooth loss.
Fortunately, dentures can correct most issues associated with tooth loss. Dentures are natural-looking prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base. They are placed in the mouth over the gums to give the user the appearance and function of natural teeth. There are several types of dentures available, and they can be removable or permanently secured.
In order to have fixed dentures, you will first need minor surgery to place dental implants, which are screw-like appliances that act a replacement tooth roots. Fixed dentures are attached to the dental implants and remain secure at all times. Once they have been placed, fixed dentures can be cared for just like natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing.
Traditional dentures are removable, but while they are in the mouth, they provide the user with the appearance and function of regular teeth. Dentures will grip tightly around the jawbone and dental arch, and they will use suction to stay in place. Traditional dentures are taken out of the mouth to sleep and for cleaning purposes. We build our traditional dentures from high-quality materials to help ensure that they provide great performance and last as long as possible.
Removable dentures with denture stabilization implants are the perfect middle-ground for some patients. These utilize a surgically-implanted metal stabilization framework. This is placed in one minor surgical procedure. Dentures are attached to the framework, but they can still be taken out of the mouth for easy cleaning and then quickly reinserted for general use.
If you are experiencing tooth loss and you are looking for a replacement that looks natural and functions well, dentures might be the ideal solution for you. Our experts can help you choose the perfect type of dentures for your needs so that you can proudly smile once again. Please call us today at (770) 400-9160 to schedule an appointment.
