Dentures Are A Great Tooth-Loss Solution
- April 17, 2017
Modern dentures are prosthetic dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They basically give you your life back following tooth loss as an adult. Today we’d like to tell you more about what dentures entail and to remind you that Dr. David Bistritz is the go-to guy for tooth loss solutions in the Aventura, Florida area. So, keep reading and then be sure to contact us to schedule your consultation at Aventura Dental Center.
How Dentures Work
Dentures have been around in one form or another for as long as people have been losing teeth. Modern dentures are supported by the nearby soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. A dental denture is designed to look and function like your original teeth and gums, boosting your appearance and helping you chew more effectively and speak clearly once again.
Dentures Expand Your Menu
One of the most disappointing aspects of tooth loss is the subsequent inability to eat the foods you love. Dentures can allow you to chew the harder to consume fiber-rich foods. As such, dentures will help you improve not only your menu options but also your general health, overall appearance, and self-assurance!
There are several kinds of dentures available to us now. Full dentures provide a full set of replacement teeth connected to a thin plastic base colored to look like your natural gums. This base is custom-fitted to grip snugly and sit comfortably over your gums, allowing you to converse, dine, and laugh normally again.
If you are not missing an entire arch of teeth, a partial denture could be just what you need to get back on track. These operate pretty much the same way as full dentures and they too are artificial teeth set in a natural-looking base that fits over your gums. And to allow for additional strength, they use clasps to hold onto the teeth near the gap.
Dentures + Dental Implants
Implants are often used in conjunction with dentures. Dr. Bistritz can set you up with one of two great options for this kind of added-stabilization: implant-supported dentures and implant-retained dentures.
In the modern era, dentures have been vastly improved, compared to what they used to be. And the most secure and permanent teeth replacement option is a denture attached permanently to dental implants.
Another possibility for improving your existing dentures is that we can modify them with one of two systems, either bar-retained or ball-retained, which will allow your denture implants to securely snap into place on implants that are placed in your jaw.
