When Dentures Are Right for You
Today, thanks to advances in science and medicine, people are living longer than ever. This is a great achievement, but how does it affect your dental health?
As the years go by, your teeth withstand a lot of wear and tear. Over time, this use takes its toll in the form of damaged or missing teeth. So eventually the day may come when your Bonita Grande dentist has exhausted all possible options for restoring your existing teeth. At that point, it’s time to talk about dentures.
Types of Dentures Available
There are different types of dentures to choose from:
Complete dentures are appropriate if you are missing all teeth in an upper or lower arch.
Partial dentures are designed to fit around existing teeth and are held in place with clasps
Immediate dentures are placed the day you have your teeth extracted so you don’t have to go without teeth.
Not Your Grandparents’ Dentures
Of course, like most people, you may resist the idea of dentures because you’ve heard negative stories about them for most of your life. This is probably because many denture-wearers are not satisfied with the fit, feel, or look of their dentures.
But dentures have come a long way since your grandparents’ day. Today dentists take advantage of cutting-edge dental materials and technology to create dentures that are superior in every way to dentures made decades ago.
We have many more choices for creating dentures than ever before. State-of-the-art materials enable us to customize dentures to fit perfectly and conform comfortably to the contours of your jaw.
You don’t have to worry that your dentures will look fake because we customize every detail to complement your appearance. We will work with you to decide the perfect color, shape, and size of the artificial teeth. In fact, dentures today look so natural that no one will suspect they aren’t your teeth!
