When you have more than a couple of missing teeth, it’s often a good idea to consider dentures or partial dentures. The dentists at Creek Dental frequently recommend this solution with excellent results for our patients in Salt Lake City and Layton.
The reasons for tooth loss are many. Often, tooth loss is the result of decay, but gum disease, trauma, and other factors are also sometimes to blame. Regardless of the reason for tooth loss, one thing is clear: missing teeth should be replaced as soon as possible. Otherwise, you could suffer bone loss in your jaw.
Another common consequence of not replacing missing teeth is that your healthy teeth begin to move into the spaces left behind, leaving more and wider gaps between teeth. The appearance of your face might also be affected, with cheeks sinking into areas with no teeth to support your facial structure.
Partial dentures can be a good solution for patients who are missing several teeth. While our dentists recommend dental implants as the best solution for missing teeth, some patients balk at the cost of replacing several. In these instances, a partial denture works well.
Even if you have missing teeth on both sides of your mouth, our dentists can fashion a partial denture that you can easily snap into place. This works even for patients who have few remaining teeth left. In these cases, building partial dentures is preferable to pulling the healthy teeth and constructing a full set, because the remaining natural teeth will help keep the jaw healthier and in better shape.
Partial dentures, though removable, look completely natural. They’re also easy to take care of because you can take them out and clean them thoroughly.
Most people are familiar with dentures, which have been available for many years, but today’s dentures are not your grandma’s dentures. They don’t slip or clack when you talk, because today dentists have technology that allows us to make your dentures a custom fit for your mouth. This means no more glue or adhesives are necessary, and they are much more comfortable as well.
Further, they look more natural than ever. No one will be able to tell you are wearing dentures. If anything, patients often look better after they get dentures. Not only do they no longer have gaps in their teeth, but the teeth they have are straighter and more attractive. You can even opt to get dentures several shades whiter than your natural teeth.
Compared to dental implants, dentures are extremely affordable. They’re a great solution for missing teeth.
If you are missing several teeth (or more), make an appointment to see the dentists at Creek Dental of Salt Lake City or Layton. We can evaluate you to see if you would be a good candidate for a full or partial denture. We love helping restore smiles!
