People from all walks of life and backgrounds experience tooth loss. The problem can stem from a number of causes including oral injury, poor genetics, gum disease or poor care. One of the most effective ways to replace missing teeth is by using natural-looking dentures.
Dentures are prosthetic teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. The dentures of today appear much more natural and provide superior function to the dentures that were used in prior decades. They are designed to remain sturdy, resemble healthy teeth and provide excellent functionality for regular tasks like chewing and speaking. Another benefit of dentures is that they can help prevent further complications that frequently appear with tooth loss. These problems can include tooth shifts, imbalances in bite, and the loss of facial structure.
At Salem Creek Family Dental, we consider it essential to provide the highest-quality dentures for our patients. Our dentures are custom-made using the finest materials available. And not only will they be able to chew food with confidence, they will also be able to smile proudly. This alone makes dentures a very important investment for anyone experiencing major tooth loss.
Our practice specializes in the use of traditional dentures.
Traditional dentures rely on principles of suction and grip to keep them steady and in place. These dentures can consist of both an upper and a lower portion. The upper portion covers the roof the mouth, and it uses suction to remain secure and replace the upper teeth.
The lower portion grips tightly around any remaining jawbone and the dental arch and rests over where the lower teeth were once present. Both parts consist of a gum-colored base and natural-looking replacement teeth that are custom-made based on the look of the user’s mouth.
There are several benefits to using traditional dentures as a viable tooth-replacement option. For one, no surgery is needed to install the dentures. This means that the patient will not have to undergo any sort of recovery period when using traditional dentures. Since traditional dentures are removable, they can be taken out for easy cleaning.
