Without a full set of teeth, you may find yourself less than pleased with your oral health and appearance. Sagging facial muscles due to the lack of teeth can make you look older, and the inability to chew foods or maintain a healthy diet can cause overall health issues. Speaking may become difficult, causing a limit in social interactions. Missing teeth prompt remaining teeth to shift out of place in an effort to compensate. If you’re missing many or all of your teeth, dentures may be the best treatment option. These removable appliances help aid in your oral and overall health. Full dentures are a complete row of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. A full denture can replace all upper and/or lower teeth. At Wager Evans Dental, we want to help improve your quality of life by replacing missing teeth and improving the health and function of your smile.
Depending on the state of your missing teeth, there are different types of dentures that we can use to help recreate your full set. At Wager Evans Dental, we will work with you and evaluate your teeth to see what type of denture is most suitable.
A partial denture replaces multiple teeth, not all teeth, on the upper or lower arch. Like a puzzle piece, partial dentures fill spaces so that your smile is restored and functions properly. Partials usually attach to neighboring teeth with inconspicuous clasps. The artificial teeth in a partial will employ lifelike dental materials. Partials also help prevent the misalignment that often accompanies tooth loss, keeping your smile whole, even, and healthy.
The gold standard in tooth replacement as become the use of implants. This is also true when replacing all of the teeth with a complete denture. With the use of implants to help retain a complete denture significant increases in biting strength and denture retention are achieved.
