Full & Partial Dentures Make Smiles Complete
Every tooth in your mouth serves an important role, which is why a complete smile is vital to your oral health, functions, and appearance. Not only are your teeth critical for your ability to chew and speak, but did you know that studies show that people with a full set of teeth tend to live longer than those without? Unfortunately, tooth loss is quite common. If you are among those who are suffering from tooth loss, Dr. Howard can renew your smile and quality of life with partial or full dentures in Marietta.
Benefit from a Complete Smile
Tooth loss effects more than just your confidence. It also impacts your quality of life, oral health, and general health. When you are missing teeth, it can be difficult chewing many foods, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies. Not to mention, it can hurt your oral health if you have remaining natural teeth.
The empty spaces cause your teeth to lose support, causing them to shift out of alignment. This makes them more difficult to clean, increasing your risk for tooth decay and gum disease. These complications can potentially lead to additional tooth loss and other dental issues, like gum disease, which can hurt your overall health. In fact, gum disease is directly linked to causing cardiovascular disease, respiratory infections, and several other issues.
To protect your quality of life and overall health, your dentist in Marietta has the solutions you need for a complete, confident smile.
If you are missing several teeth, partial dentures will fill the empty spaces. It features custom-made prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored base and a metal framework. It is then attached to the adjected teeth to hold it in place. This provides your remaining natural teeth with the support they need to stay in place while restoring your ability to chew and speak.
Full dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Impressions are taken to create a gum-colored base, which will hold the prosthetic teeth. The arch is then held in place using suction or a denture adhesive. Now, several advancements have been made to allow them to look and function more natural than ever before, so you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence.
In addition to traditional full and partial dentures, Dr. Howard may suggest the use of dental implants to anchor your prosthetic teeth in place. This involves surgically placing dental implant posts into your jawbone. This can potentially offer a lifelong solution to treat your tooth loss for those who have difficult getting the ideal fit and comfort with traditional options.
