Natural teeth are created to last a lifetime but through illness, trauma, poor oral hygiene or other circumstances, teeth are lost. This can result in a variety of problems, from loss of confidence and self-esteem to poor nutrition due to the inability to chew foods properly. If you are suffering with missing teeth, dentures may be the restorative dental treatment you need to get you back on track.
Moores Chapel Dentistry offers both full and partial dentures for patients needing to find a way to replace missing teeth. Dentures are removable prosthetics made from acrylic and resins, designed to resemble your actual teeth.
Full & Complete Dentures
When all your teeth are missing you have no surface area on which to properly chew your food. You are severely limited in the types of food you can eat. This has a negative impact on your health, since you cannot eat some of the healthy foods that provide you with a good nutritional balance. Lack of teeth also affects how your look. With no teeth to support your cheeks and lips, your face has a sunken look. Dentures will give your facial features the support they need and you will automatically look years younger. You will also be able to eat a wide variety of foods, including the healthy nutritious foods that will keep you energized and feeling great.
You may still have some of your teeth but several may be missing. In such a case you may need partial dentures. Partials are a good alternative to bridgework, particularly when there is only one abutment tooth. It is also an economical alternative. Partial dentures provide stability and support for your remaining teeth. With a partial in place, your natural teeth will not be able to shift out of position.
Missing teeth affect your overall health as well as your self-esteem and confidence. This is easily remedied by a trip to Moores Chapel Dentistry where Dr. Chun Peng will talk with you and explain how dentures can improve the quality of your life.
