Dentures - Are You Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can cause far more than aesthetic displeasure. Missing teeth can allow adjacent teeth to shift, bone loss in the jaw increases the appearance of aging, and spaces increase the opportunity for decay and periodontal disease to set in.
One dental solution for missing teeth is dentures.
Dentures are artificial teeth used to fill in the spaces created by missing teeth. They can be made different materials, often hardened porcelain and acrylic resin, and are made to look as natural as possible. Dentures can be created to fill the place of one missing tooth, several teeth, even all of patient's teeth depending on the nature and reason for their tooth loss.
Aside from aesthetic appearance, dentures will help a patient with chewing, normal speech, facial muscle support, and avoid the shifting of surrounding teeth. If you are missing one or more teeth ask us if dentures are right for you.
Dentures may just be the procedure that brings out the best from your smile.
