Permanent tooth loss is something we try to prevent, but it’s a reality for many of our patients, and for many different reasons. Injury, accident, genetic conditions, and natural tooth loss can all result in a span of missing teeth, or an entire mouth. When this happens, it’s essential to replace those teeth. A full set of teeth isn’t just important for our appearance and self-confidence; it’s also vital for meeting the needs of talking and eating properly.
Dentures are the traditional choice for tooth replacement, and come in two forms: full and partial. A full denture replaces an entire jaw of teeth, while a partial denture attaches to remaining teeth in order to replace a number of missing ones. Both types of dentures are removable for both easy cleaning and maintenance.
Full and partial dentures are both made by fitting artificial teeth into an acrylic base that fits over the gums. A full set fits completely over the gumline, while the partial set is fitted around the teeth on either side of the space. Dentures are custom-made for your mouth, so that they fit as snugly and comfortably as possible.
Dentures have changed a lot over the years, and the modern options are more attractive and realistic than ever. They’re an economical and reliable choice for anyone living with permanent tooth loss. Here at Canamera Dentistry, we’d love to talk to you about your denture options. After all, there’s nothing we like better than a happy - and complete -smile!
