Don’t worry, you’re not alone!
It has been reported that in the USA alone there are nearly 35 million people who wear dentures, and the number will grow as our Baby Boomer population ages, despite the fact that better oral hygiene is reducing the percentage of patients who will need full or partial dentures in their lifetime. Regardless of whether your tooth loss is from tooth decay, gum disease, or an injury, it is extremely vital to your overall health and well being that you replace missing teeth. Besides an inability to chew food properly, your remaining teeth can shift and sagging facial features will make you look much older than you are.
Dentures are not for everyone of course.
Today, there are a wide range of new treatment alternatives to dentures available at All Smiles Family Dental Center, and they are well worth your consideration. These treatments include replacement teeth, or crowns, individually anchored by titanium dental implants, which are inserted and naturally fused into the jaw bone to look and function like your own teeth.
Implants are also used to effectively “anchor” and securely hold dentures, allowing patients more confidence when eating foods like steak or corn on the cob, while dining out, speaking publicly, or simply laughing! Unlike dental bridges that cannot be removed for daily oral hygiene purposes, partial dentures offer a removable alternative.
Crowns are another treatment option that your All Smiles dentist may recommend because they can serve as an anchor for partial dentures. Make the call today! You owe it to yourself to make the call today to arrange a no-obligation, initial consultation to learn more about our comfortable and natural appearing dentures and all the options available to improve your smile and facial appearance.
Your All Smiles dentist will gladly review the options available to you, and our staff can provide you with a detailed explanation of treatment costs following a complete examination.
