All tooth loss, whether full or partial, can lead to a host of problems if left untreated. It can not only affect self-esteem, but it can also make it difficult to bite, chew and speak properly. Digestive issues, malnutrition, and other health disorders may result. Fortunately, these conditions can be treated with removable dentures.
Removable dentures are only one tooth replacement solution. Others include dental implants and fixed bridges. There are pros and cons to each method. Different varieties of dentures address specific concerns, from partials to implant-supported dentures. The best treatment option for you depends on your unique case.
Patients who live with missing teeth tend to feel embarrassed and uncomfortable. Essential daily tasks like eating and speaking properly can be challenging. Today, there is no reason for anyone to accept tooth loss as a life sentence.
Removable dentures are used to replace missing teeth. If you have lost one or more teeth, it is important to replace them with a complete or partial denture to restore mouth function, dental health, and facial appearance. At Kay's Dental clinic we offer both complete and partial dentures.
Complete dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. A complete denture may be considered if you are missing a whole mouthful of teeth or just the upper or lower arch. It all depends on your tooth replacement needs. Our dentist may recommend using an adhesive to keep the prosthetic stable.
If you still have a few existing healthy teeth, you may benefit from a partial removable denture. Partials consist of a gum-colored framework attached with replacement teeth that latch on to adjacent natural teeth.
Our dentist may recommend complete or partial dentures to replace missing teeth and restore oral health. Tooth replacement can improve the basic mouth functions and facial aesthetic appeal. Your custom-fitted removable dentures will provide a comfortable and secure fit, so you can feel free to smile with confidence.
