For many people who are missing teeth, dentures are the most common option. If you are looking at dentures to replace your missing teeth, you might be thinking that dentures are not a very appealing solution.
What you should know, however, is that today’s dentures are much more comfortable and look much more natural than the artificial dentures of the past. Not only do today’s dentures look more natural, but they are more comfortable than ever.
Talk to Dr. Richard Mancuso of Carrollwood Village Dental if you are missing teeth and would like to learn more about dentures. Today’s attractive, functional, natural-looking dentures will give you back the form and function you had before you lost your teeth!
When you are missing a few teeth, a partial denture can fill in the gap between teeth that is left behind. A partial denture comprises replacement teeth that are attached to a plastic base that matches the color of your gums. The partial denture clips to the teeth on either side of the gap.
Filling in the gap will not only give you back your ability to chew comfortably and speak confidently, but it will also keep your other teeth from shifting.
If you are facing the loss of all of your teeth, complete dentures will give you a set of teeth that look very natural.
Once you grow accustomed to the dentures, you should be able to eat most of your favorite foods again and you can speak and laugh without feeling self-conscious.
Implant-supported dentures also known as an Over Denture offer patients the best of both worlds. A complement of teeth that is supported by dental implants instead of the gums. Full dentures are stabilized on four dental implants, so patients do not have to worry about the dentures shifting in their mouth. With implant-supported dentures, dentures are completely stable, so you can eat, laugh, and talk with complete confidence.
Unlike with dentures alone, implant supported dentures stimulate the jawbone to prevent “facial collapse,” which is the sunken-in, aged look that happens when the jawbone deteriorates as is common with traditional dentures.
