Tooth loss can present major challenges including difficulties with chewing food and speaking clearly. From a cosmetic standpoint, the issue can ruin the appearance of one’s smile. And if tooth loss is left untreated, it is likely that the individual will soon begin to suffer from facial structure loss, jawbone deterioration, bite imbalances and tooth shifts. For these reasons, tooth loss is very concerning, and it must be properly dealt with as quickly as possible.
Fortunately, dentures can go a long way towards correcting these issues. A set of dentures is comprised of natural-looking prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base. They are applied over the gums to give the user the appearance and function of natural teeth. There are many different types of dentures available, and they can be made to be removable or permanently secured. All of the dentures we offer are designed to look natural and provide strong performance.
Fixed dentures use surgically placed dental implants to remain secure at all times. They are permanently attached, and they can never be removed unless oral surgery is provided. Once they have been installed, fixed dentures can be cared for in largely the same manner as natural teeth, with regular brushing and flossing. As long as proper maintenance and care are provided, a set of fixed dentures should remain intact for a lifetime.
Traditional dentures are removable appliances that are worn inside the mouth to provide the user with the appearance and function of regular teeth. These dentures will grip tightly around the user’s remaining jawbone and dental arch, and they will use suction to remain steady and secure when worn. As a result, the user shouldn’t have to worry about their traditional dentures coming loose when they are talking or chewing. A convenient aspect of traditional dentures is that they can be taken out of the mouth at any time for cleaning purposes. We build our traditional dentures from the finest materials to help ensure that they provide great performance and last as long as possible.
