Learn About Dental Dentures
For many decades, people all around the world have relied on a dental denture when they have lost adult teeth to disease, decay, illness or injury. Available as full dentures (meaning they replace all of the teeth in the upper or the lower arches) or as partials, meaning they replace just a few missing teeth in the same arch, a denture provides many benefits.
For example, the patient with full dental dentures will be able to enjoy a wider array of dietary options, will retain the original and natural appearance of their face and jaw area, and will not unevenly wear or even break remaining teeth. When we lose even a single adult tooth it can cause a chain reaction of events. We might experience shifting of remaining teeth, which can lead to a misalignment in the bite, and this can cause wear, cracks, and problems with the jaw.
If we lose all of the teeth in one arch, it can cause bite problems, jaw problems, and it will greatly change the look of the face. A dentures is a wonderful solution to all of these issues, but they must be made for you by a skilled dentist.
