Which Dentures Are Right for You?

Missing teeth can be problematic for many people, often leading to insecurities about their smiles and more severe issues like malnutrition. If you find yourself in this position, however, there is hope. Restorative dental treatment can help to cosmetically complete your smile, but that is not all. It can also help restore your ability to bite and chew naturally. This is crucial in being able to enjoy your meals, and your life. Depending on your needs, full or partial dentures might be the best solution for restoring your smile.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dentures?

If you have a missing tooth, or a few missing teeth, then partial dentures might be right for you. These can be effective in protecting your teeth’s alignment, and can help you to eat and speak more naturally. Dental implants and dental bridges are other more permanent restorative options, but they are considerably more expensive than dentures.

Full dentures are, as the name implies, used when a patient has lost an entire arch of teeth. These dentures are held in place by your mouth’s natural suction, but are removable for proper cleaning.

Both forms of dentures are made from a durable acrylic that is made to be natural-looking and as comfortable as possible. In place, they will beautifully restore your smile, and after adjusting to wearing them, you should be able to eat most of your favorite foods comfortably once again.

The benefits of dentures are similar to all forms of restorative dentistry, in that they help to protect your oral health and the integrity of your smile. Preserving your natural alignment is particularly important when you have lost a tooth or teeth, but still have teeth left. If you have been affected by tooth loss, you do not have to settle for an incomplete smile, or one that is not functioning as well as it could.
