Can You Benefit from Dentures?

It is unfortunate that dentures have a reputation as being old-fashioned or something used only by your grandparents. This is because dentures are a fantastic and modern solution to the loss of adult teeth. Corey Mazer, DDS at Old Milton Dental in Alpharetta, GA, encourage our patients to consider how they can benefit from dentures if they have lost teeth or are facing the loss of teeth.

As your preferred dentist in Alpharetta, we view dentures as a key form of restorative dentistry because they do just that – restore the use of your mouth to the fullest extent possible. In doing so, you get the first of the many benefit from dentures, which is an improved quality of life.

Of course, it is important to note that dentures are not a “one size fits all” design and come in a wide range of styles. Let’s first consider the many ways that dentures can be designed. We can custom craft a set of full dentures that replaces an entire set of upper or lower teeth. These can be used for eating and left in at all times, except when you clean the gums or sleep.

There are also partials that are worn and used in the same way. The difference with partials is that they replace a series of missing teeth or several missing teeth rather than a full set. Either of these dentures are impossible to tell from your real teeth and will provide you many years of service.

Another way to benefit from dentures is as an affordable alternative to multiple dental implants. For example, you can retain gum and bone tissue when you use dental implants rather than dentures alone. However, many implants can be cost prohibitive, and so our patients can benefit from dentures that are supported by multiple implants instead. This gives them a more permanent solution as the dentures are mounted to the implants and are not removed for eating, drinking or sleeping.

Another way that dentures are beneficial is that they are a relatively affordable way to restore the use of the mouth. If you lose multiple teeth, the use of dentures immediately enables you to behave as you did before the loss of the teeth, and yet it is also the least costly way of replacing those missing teeth.

If you are facing the decision between dentures, implants, or bridges, you should be glad to know you have choices. There are benefits for each, and dentures can bring many benefits along with being very easy to use and maintain over the years.

    Karen Naide
  • My family and I have been going to Old Milton Dental for 11 years. A few years ago they became out of Network with our insurance carrier and we thought no big deal, we'll just go to a dentist in Network. Well that was the bigest mistake, The level of care at the in Network dentist did not compare. We immediately went back to Old Milton Dental. They are still out of Network but we choose to have good service and an honest reputable dentist.
