As you age, it can be quite normal for you to experience tooth loss due to normal wear-and-tear, periodontal disease, or facial trauma. Even though it is quite common, tooth loss can have many detrimental consequences, especially on the appearance of your smile and your social confidence. While there are many methods to replace missing teeth, dentures are one of the most widely used and popular methods.
A denture not only serves to replace your teeth and improve the appearance of your smile, but it can also help you speak in a normal fashion and allow you to eat foods that you otherwise would have trouble with. A denture is a removable oral insert that can serve to replace an entire arch of teeth, called a complete denture, or only some of the teeth on either your upper or lower arch, called a partial denture.
Many people can benefit from the use of a denture. Dentures are a great solution if you are missing a whole arch of teeth. Likewise, if you are only missing some of the teeth on either your upper or lower arch, dentures can fit alongside your existing teeth and serve to replace the missing ones.
For dentures to work properly, it is a good idea for you to have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. Sometimes, teeth are removed in order to make it possible to use a full denture. The team at SEDA Dental will work with you to create a plan of care that fits your needs, ultimately restoring your smile and giving you back your confidence.
Initially, the team at SEDA Dental will examine your mouth and have a custom denture made specifically for your needs. Once this denture is ready, they will adjust it in order to ensure a proper fit in your mouth. At first, it may feel a little awkward. However, this feeling will diminish over time, and you will be able to eat and speak with ease.
It is important to care for your dentures properly to ensure their longevity. This involves properly cleaning your denture and soaking it overnight to prevent it from drying out. It will also be necessary to get regular checkups with SEDA Dental in order to ensure the proper fit of your dentures and the health of your mouth.
