Periodontal disease, injury and tooth decay can all cause a loss of your natural teeth. However, we can bring back the smile on your face with dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, dentists can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable for the patient.
Dentures come in an array of shapes, sizes and styles, which can be overwhelming for the patient. A Specialist will help you decide what is best for your mouth when teeth are lost. There is no one style of generic false teeth that will work for everyone because every individual has a different mouth and needs. Not everyone needs a full set either, partial sets are also available depending on your needs.
Types of Dentures
There are two types: complete and partial.
- Complete dentures cover the patient’s entire jaw.
- Partial dentures, with their metal framework, replace multiple missing teeth.
To know which type is best for you, be sure to ask your doctor.
It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your new teeth.
