While you may do your best to maintain good oral hygiene, life happens, and you can experience partial or total tooth loss for different reasons, such as physical damage. Not only can this cost a loss of confidence, but it can create a domino effect damaging the health of the surrounding teeth. That’s why, here at Total Health Dental, Dr. Khaja Mohsinuddin and his team work with patients to find the best therapeutic options, such as dentures.
Dr. Mohsinuddin offers patients several denture options. Unfortunately, many people have the wrong idea when it comes to dentures. They often think of people like their grandparents or older folks from movies and tv shows who constantly have their dentures falling out.
However, like every other part of dentistry, denture technology has also evolved over the years. And today, patients have a more comprehensive range of choices for natural-looking and stable tooth restorations.
Partial Dentures: These dentures can replace one or more teeth within your dental arch. Partial dentures utilize a metal framework to snap into place using your surrounding natural teeth for support. The false teeth fit where they are needed and complete the function and natural appearance of your lost teeth. They can be used while speaking, eating, and smiling.
Complete Dentures: Comprise an entire top or bottom tooth dental arch. They are made using durable acrylic and also include false gums. These dentures are held in place using either natural suction or special adhesives.
Implant-Supported Dentures: Patients can also combine the use of dental implants to act as anchors for their dentures. This practice eliminates the need for adhesives and significantly reduces denture maintenance. Patients can enjoy their favorite foods, such as corn on the cob, without worrying about dislodging their dentures. This restoration option has become very popular as it’s allowed patients to smile with renewed confidence and assurance.
