Tooth loss may be caused by traumatic injury, tooth decay or periodontal disease. It is crucial to replace teeth that are missing as failure to do so can result in the shifting of remaining teeth, sagging of facial features, and an inability to chew and bite properly. Dentures can provide a solution to these issues.
There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting. One of the best features of dentures today, is that they are customized in a way that they provide proper function and comfort while still maintaining a natural appearance, giving you the smile you deserve.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or adjusted due to normal wear.
