Dentures – Natural-Looking Tooth Replacement!
Are you missing teeth? According to recent studies, 178 million Americans are missing at least one tooth, and nearly 40 million are missing all of their teeth. Teeth can go missing for a variety of reasons; some of the most common causes include gum disease (also known as periodontal disease, tooth decay, genetic disorders, and oral trauma). Whether your tooth got knocked out at a soccer game or fell out because of gum disease, we’ve got dental replacement options for you.
If you’re missing one or two teeth and looking to fill those gaps in your smile, a partial removable denture might be the way to go. These are an inexpensive and convenient option for people who want to replace missing teeth. Dental prosthetics are made up of gum-colored plastic and usually have a strong metal base. These prosthetics are often held in place by your surrounding natural teeth.
The fitting process involves a visit to the dentist, who will take a detailed mold of your teeth. Based on the mold, the partial denture can be created. Your fit may not be perfect at first and can be adjusted and tweaked until it’s to your liking. It’s also important to note that your teeth may move and shift over time, so adjustments might need to be made periodically to keep your denture feeling comfortable and looking its best.
When someone is missing all of their natural teeth, looking into full dentures is always a good idea. These are a removable dental replacement option that is usually made from flesh-colored acrylic to help blend into your natural gums. If you’ve had your natural teeth removed, you should wait until your gums are completely healed before you start wearing full dentures. Dentures are customized to your mouth and can help you look and function like you’ve got your teeth back.
