Restoring Confidence and Everyday Functioning
Whether you are missing one or all of your teeth, losing teeth in adulthood can be devastating. You may even think that dentures, the most commonly-used tooth replacement method, aren’t much of an improvement after hearing friends and loved ones complain about prosthetics that slip and fall out of place. The skilled team at Modern Dental Health is here to allay your fears about dentures. The truth is, replacing missing teeth is necessary to prevent oral and overall health problems. Gaps in your smile aren’t just a cosmetic issue; you can also develop crooked teeth and a misaligned bite if teeth are allowed to drift into the spaces left behind, which can lead to grinding, clenching, and tooth damage. Missing teeth can also inhibit your ability to eat certain foods with ease, which can lead to changes in weight and even malnutrition. To help protect the health of your remaining teeth and the rest of your body, your dentist at Modern Dental Health will fit you with complete or partial dentures that fit so well, your only regret will be that you didn’t get them sooner.
Great-Fitting Complete Dentures
If you have no remaining teeth on your top or bottom dental arch, a complete denture is right for you. Our dentist at Modern Dental Health are expertly-trained at obtaining optimal fit of dentures so that they will remain firmly in place as you go about your daily routine. Complete dentures consist of an acrylic resin base holding a full set of prosthetic teeth and are held in place with the use of natural suction or a denture adhesive.
Comfortable Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are used in patients who still have some of their natural teeth. Also consisting of an acrylic base, a partial is held in place by attaching to some of your remaining teeth. A partial can replace one tooth, several teeth in a row, or multiple missing teeth in any location on a dental arch, restoring full tooth function and staying snugly in place.
Implant or Hybrid Dentures
Even though yur dentist at Modern Dental Health can create precisely-fitting dentures and partials, some patients may still feel insecure about wearing removable prosthetics. That is why we offer implant dentures, also known as hybrid dentures. To keep your prosthetics firmly in place, allowing them to feel and function like natural teeth, your full or partial denture can be attached to a few dental implants placed in the jawbone. Patients report increased confidence and tooth function with implant dentures, giving them even more reasons to smile.
