Missing teeth can cause problems eating, speaking, and even smiling. Fortunately, dentures are an excellent option to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and restore your smile. They are custom made to fit your mouth and match your natural tooth’s color, shape, and size. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a plastic base.
Two main kinds of dentures are available: complete dentures and partial dentures. Full dentures replace an entire arch of teeth, while partial dentures are used when only a few teeth are lost.
Partial dentures are made from a combination of metal and acrylic. The denture's base is made from a metal framework with clasps that fit around your remaining teeth. The artificial teeth are made of acrylic. Complete dentures are also made from acrylic but are held in place by suction or an adhesive.
Dentures can be uncomfortable initially, but they will become more comfortable as you get used to them. You may need to adjust your diet when you first start wearing dentures, as certain foods may be difficult to chew. With time and practice, you will be able to eat normally again.
The Procedure for Dentures
Our dentist in Canton, OH, will take impressions of your teeth to create custom dentures. These impressions will be sent to a lab where your dentures will be made. Once your dentures are ready, our dentist will fit them into your mouth and make any necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit.
Dentures can help you regain your confidence and improve your quality of life. They can make it easier for you to speak and eat, and they can also help to prevent bone loss in your jaw. Talk to your dentist to see if dentures are right for you.
The Benefits of Dentures
Missing teeth can make biting into certain foods, such as apples, steak, and other foods, difficult. With dentures, you’ll be able to enjoy these foods once again. You’ll be able to chew your food quickly, improving your digestion and preventing digestive problems like constipation.
Having missing teeth can make you self-conscious about your smile. You may feel embarrassed to smile or laugh publicly, affecting your self-esteem. However, with dentures, you’ll regain your confidence and be able to show off those pearly whites!
When you don’t have all your natural teeth, your mouth is more susceptible to infection and disease. Bacteria can build up in your gum line and cause gum disease. Dentures in Canton, OH, help to prevent this by filling in the gaps where your teeth are missing. They also help keep your gums healthy by supporting and preventing further bone loss.
Dentures may be a good option if you are missing several or all of your teeth. Visit Patibandla Dental at 3507 CLEVELAND AVE. NW, Canton, OH 44709, or call (330) 452-0695 to see if dentures are right for you.
