Brings Beauty Back to Smiles
Over the last several decades, numerous advancements in dentistry have been made to allow us to preserve your natural teeth for longer than before. Unfortunately, tooth loss can still occur. Whether due to decay, disease, or trauma, your quality of life, confidence, and oral health are all compromised when you do not have a complete smile. To help bring back a healthy, beautiful smile, Dr. Colleen has the solution you need with dentures in Castle Shannon.
Why Do I Need to Replace My Missing Teeth?
Every tooth in your mouth has an important job to do to promote the proper functions that are necessary for chewing and speaking. When even one is missing, it can lead to dietary limitations while also making it difficult to speak clearly. Not to mention, your confidence can be lost along with your teeth.
Your quality of life is not the only area to suffer. Your oral health will become compromised as well. When you have missing teeth, any remaining ones will begin to shirt toward the open space. This can lead to alignment issues that make your teeth harder to clean. As a result, you will have an increased risk of gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, you can lose more teeth in the future because they will not have the support they need to stay in place.
What are My Options to Replace My Teeth?
Now, you have several options to replace your missing teeth. Among the most affordable and convenient involves partials or dentures. Depending on your level of tooth loss, your dentist in Castle Shannon will determine which one will best meet your needs.
Partials allow you to fill the space of one or more missing teeth. Using impressions of your mouth, prosthetic teeth are created that will match the size, shape, and color of your natural ones. This ensures that they function properly while also creating a flawless smile.
The prosthetic teeth are then attached to a metal framework, which uses your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place. Not only does this complete your smile and quality of life, but it also provides your remaining natural teeth with the support they need to stay in place.
Although dentures have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, several advancements have now improved their appearance and function. Impressions of your mouth are taken to create an acrylic base, which will hold custom-made prosthetic teeth. To attach your denture, suction or an adhesive is used.
With the right fit and the use of high-quality material, you can speak, smile, and chew with ease and confidence. Using the right aftercare, your new smile will last for an average of 5 years before needing to be replaced.
