If you have a few or a complete set of teeth missing, dentures can be a good solution for you. Missing teeth is not a rare oral health problem especially to those people who are approaching old age. However, a complete set of teeth is still important in order for an individual to speak, eat and chew naturally. Missing teeth can also impact person’s looks, which is why we offer dentures at our Bonita Springs FL practice to serve as an effective dental solution for this problem.
Dentures, whether partial or complete, are a good option to replace missing teeth. They can fit into your gums, and you can easily remove them for cleaning. These can help improve not only your appearance, but also in restoring your ability to speak and eat properly.
Dentures can be divided into two broad categories, namely:
- Complete dentures – this type of denture is used to replace a full set of teeth in a dental arch.
- Partial dentures – these are the dentures that are used when you still have some natural teeth remaining. The denture is attached to a pink colored base made of plastic to hold the denture in your mouth. Partial dentures not only replace missing teeth, but also avoid the other teeth from changing their position inside the mouth.
If you are looking for teeth replacement that can last longer and can function more naturally like your teeth than the removable dentures, you can also opt for denture stabilization or implant supported dentures. This procedure is called denture stabilization because it uses a titanium screw that is placed In your jaw bone to serve as a support for the denture.
