Consequences of Missing Teeth

An incomplete or missing set of pearly whites impacts more than just your appearance and everyday life. Missing teeth create hard to clean areas that can easily collect food debris, plaque, and bacteria. The more these harmful particles accumulate, the higher your risk is of developing serious oral health issues like dental infections and gum disease.

An increased risk of developing gum disease is nothing to brush off, since this common bacterial infection can damage your jawbone and destroy the connective tissues that hold your remaining teeth in place. As if that wasn’t enough, researchers have discovered a connection between gum disease and numerous other health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, and memory loss. Regaining a complete smile will help you continue to look and feel your best for years to come.

Partial Dentures

If you’re missing several teeth, partial dentures may be an excellent choice for you. A partial consists of one or more custom-made replacement teeth that are set into a gum-colored base. They’re carefully designed fit perfectly around and between your remaining teeth to seamlessly fill in the gaps like puzzle pieces. Instead of relying on suction, partial dentures are held in place with metal clasps that wrap around your natural tooth structure for a secure fit.

Full Dentures

A full set of dentures is a classic way to replace an entire arch of missing teeth. Your custom-made prosthetic will feature replacement teeth that are just the right size, shape, and color for your unique mouth. They’ll be set into a gum-colored base that’s designed to fit perfectly on top of your gum ridge. The natural suction provided by the close fit combined with your cheek and tongue muscles as well as a little bit of denture adhesive all keep your new smile firmly in place. 

Are Dentures Right for Me?
