Centerville, OH dentist helps patients improve cosmetic appearance of their smiles with dentures
Many adult dental patients are surprised to learn that loss of teeth can happen at any time. In some cases, a fall or accident is the cause. In other situations, extraction may be necessary because of excessive decay or advanced gum disease. Regardless, it is important that patients call their dentist immediately. Replacement can be done with a denture, bridge, or implant. However, it is not just a cosmetic improvement. Replacing the tooth is also critical to the health of your mouth.
Dr. Cobb of Alex Bell Dental in Centerville, OH, have helped countless patients restore their smiles with dentures.
Advantages of dentures
Dental technology has improved the functionality and appearance of dentures a great deal in the past several decades. Today’s dentures have a natural look and comfortable, secure fit. No longer do patients need to worry about:
- Speaking clearly.
- Ability to eat their favorite foods.
- Embarrassing social blunders.
Dentures are also a good choice for tooth restoration because treatment can be customized. Patients who are only missing a single or several teeth, may opt for partial dentures. Those who are missing an entire arch can choose complete dentures and have them attached to implants for better stability.
Replacing a missing tooth with a denture can also improve the health of your mouth. When a tooth is missing, remaining teeth will shift out of place, leading to further oral health problems such as decay and periodontal disease. Additionally, a missing tooth leads to lack of support and stimulation for the jawbone. That eventually results in a sunken facial appearance and drooping skin. An implant-supported denture stimulates the jawbone, helping to keep remaining teeth in place, and contributing to a healthy mouth.
