Dentures for All Types of Tooth Loss
Tooth loss to any degree is a serious concern, but severe or complete tooth loss could have a significant impact on everything from your smile’s appearance to your bite’s function, and much more. A dental bridge is a great option when you’ve lost a single tooth, or a couple of adjacent ones. Yet, if you’ve lost several teeth and they aren’t all next to each other, or if you’ve lost all of your upper or lower teeth, then a dental bridge won’t suffice. Dentures are comprehensive dental prostheses that are made to help people who’ve suffered extensive or complete tooth loss regain their confidence in their smiles.
Customized complete and partial dentures
The goal of any denture is to restore your smile’s appearance and ability to function properly after suffering severe tooth loss. Traditionally, dentures have been crafted as full prostheses that replace all of the teeth on an upper or lower dental ridge. Today’s complete dentures are often crafted from lifelike porcelain, using digital imaging to create highly precise measurements and models. If you still retain healthy teeth along your dental ridge, then we can customize a partial denture that fits around and supports them, allowing us to rebuild your smile around the healthy teeth that remain.
The value in implant-supported dentures
For many patients, dentures offer more comprehensive benefits when they’re affixed to an appropriate number of dental implants. The prosthetic teeth roots, or implant posts, can be strategically inserted into your jawbone, providing a sturdy and stable foundation for your denture. This offers a wide number of immediate and long-term advantages, including:
- Significantly improved comfort and stability
- More lifelike function and appearance
- Improved long-term oral health
- A healthier, stronger, and more stimulated jawbone
- No need for hidden clasps or adhesives
- And more
