Dentures Can Give You Back Your Smile
Posted May 16, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Losing your teeth can create problems for your oral health, severely restrict your diet options, and deliver a big blow to your self-confidence. You may appear older and less healthy because of tooth loss, and you may suspect that people treat you differently as a result. What you should know is that modern prosthetic care can provide you with dentures that look and feel great, meaning you can effectively have your full smile restored! Your dentist will work with you to make sure that your prosthetic is comfortable, and that it looks natural when in position. Many patients who seek prosthetic support will be excited to learn how dental implants can make restorations more stable, and improve their overall function while offering additional oral health advantages.
Tooth loss can impact your appearance, but it will affect more than just how you look. Losing teeth means experiencing difficulty with biting and chewing, especially if you have lost all of your upper and/or lower teeth. Other effects can be less immediate. When you no longer have your tooth roots stimulating your jawbone, deterioration can occur. This can give you a sunken look, and weaken your jaw. Patients interested in having implants placed to hold a restoration may need to undergo a grafting procedure to make sure their placement procedure is a success.
Dental implants can keep dentures more stable, so that you can enjoy better function. They can also offer more comfort, as you will have a sequence of small artificial tooth roots providing support, rather than counting on epoxies or natural suction. When implants are in place, they can create stimulation that will help to prevent the deterioration of your jawbone.
