Several advancements in dentistry over the last few decades have made it possible to preserve your natural teeth for longer than before. Despite these improvements, tooth loss is still a prevalent issue for many Americans. In fact, it is estimated that 120 million adults are missing at least one tooth while another 35 million are suffering from complete tooth loss. If you are among those who no longer have a complete smile, D’Amico & Mauck can help fill the spaces with partials or dentures in Aurora.
When even one tooth is missing, you will notice a significant decline in your quality of life as everyday tasks, like chewing and speaking, become more difficult. Not to mention, your confidence was probably lost along with your teeth.
Over time, your oral and general health can also begin to suffer as you may experience additional tooth loss or nutritional deficiencies. To restore a healthy, functional smile, we can replace your missing teeth with dentures or partials.
If you are missing several teeth, you can fill the empty spaces with a partial. This is a removable oral appliance that is custom-fit to meet your exact needs. A base is made from an acrylic material that will match the color of your gum tissue. It will hold custom-made prosthetic teeth that will meet the size, shape, and color you need to look natural. To hold it in place, a metal framework or clasps are used to attach it to your remaining teeth. With the right aftercare, you can enjoy a long-term solution to complete your smile.
When you are missing all your teeth on the top or bottom arch, it can be impossible to chew many foods while your speech can sound slurred. To resolve the issues, a denture from your dentist in Aurora is the answer for you.
Using impressions of your mouth, a gum-colored base is created, which will feature custom-made prosthetic teeth. It is then held in place using suction or an adhesive. Now, you will be able to chew, speak, and smile with ease.
Although dentures have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, new advancements in dentistry now allow them to look more realistic while also offering a secure fit. To ensure that your new smile lasts, it is best to care for your dentures at home every day and maintain regular appointments with your dentist for adjustments.
If you would like to benefit from added security and stability, ask your dentist how dental implants can help to hold your denture in place.
