Restore Your Chewing Ability And Smile After Tooth Loss
Tooth loss has a significant impact on your health and your lifestyle. Dentures provide a tooth loss solution when you’ve lost all or most of your teeth.
The Deciding Factor
The number of teeth you’ve lost, the condition of your oral health, and your appearance goals help determine what kind of denture to choose. A denture can be placed in the upper and/or lower area (arch) of your mouth depending on your tooth loss circumstances.
Two Solutions To Consider
A full denture is designed to replace all of your teeth. Two full arches of teeth can be crafted to fit in your upper and lower jaw.
Natural suction secures your full denture to your jawbone and gums. A denture adhesive can be recommended to keep them in place as well.
A more-secure placement of dentures can be provided using dental implants. Strategically placed implants will require healthy and adequate bone tissue to anchor your denture.
A partial denture treats your tooth loss when you’ve lost some but not all of your teeth. Your partial can be placed (like a full denture) in the upper and/or lower portion (arch) of your mouth.
Your remaining, healthy teeth are used to support your partial denture. The tooth gap is filled by the partial to prevent tooth movement. Your partial denture can also be fixed or removable.
