A proper fitting denture is very important. A good fit ensures that your dentures will allow you to retain much of your function, which is important for maintaining natural muscle tone in your face and jaw. Dentures will keep you looking and feeling healthy and will help you retain a natural lifestyle. A lifelike smile and the best possible fit – are two of the primary goals that your doctor will achieve if you need dentures to restore your smilePartial Dentures
A partial denture will provide you with a natural-looking way to restore your smile to its original brilliance. You will be pleased with how your new partial denture restores the gaps in your smile due to your missing teeth that cannot be corrected by a bridge. Your partial denture will be removable and made from a synthetic material supported by lightweight metal that mimics your gum tissue and teeth to give you a beautiful new smile. The partial denture will preserve your bone structure and the integrity of your existing teeth by preventing them from shifting and tilting in towards the gaps created by your missing teeth.
Missing or damaged teeth not only create discomfort, but also can lead to additional damage over time. The need to chew or speak differently, or to otherwise compensate for the missing or injured tooth, reassigns dental pressure to sensitive areas. To avoid painful complications related to a missing or damaged tooth, your dentist may recommend a bridge. A dental bridge is essentially a set of three prosthetic teeth that anchors over the top of the two healthy teeth on either side of the missing tooth. The result is restored functionality and comfort. Because bridges can now be milled out of porcelain, they’re more natural looking than their earlier counterparts made of precious metals. Unlike dental implants, bridges do not require oral surgery, but will typically need replacing every 10 to 15 years.
