What kind of dentures will give you back the smile you lost?
Treating your tooth loss is something that you need to consider right away. Waiting to treat the issue or just ignoring it altogether will only lead to further complications down the road. Of course, you may be looking for a simple and inexpensive way to replace your missing teeth that won’t break the bank. If so, then it might be time to talk to our Roanoke, VA dentists about dentures.
Types of Dentures
When it comes to choosing dentures there are two main choices: partial and complete. As you can probably guess, partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth when you still have some healthy teeth remaining. Those with total tooth loss will require complete dentures in order to restore their smile.
Of course, if you’ve just had teeth extracted, we will need to give your mouth time to heal before placing custom dentures. We know that you’ll still need teeth during this time, which is why our Roanoke general dentists will give you immediate dentures. This type of dentures are not designed to fit as well as customized dentures and they aren’t meant to be used for the long-term, but they are a great way to provide you with the teeth you need while your mouth heals from your recent tooth extraction.
Some people try out dentures but never seem to get used to it. While modern-day dentures are certainly made from superior materials, they still won’t function just like natural teeth. This can leave some denture wearers frustrated; fortunately, we can offer you a better solution for replacing your missing teeth with dentures.
Instead of expecting dentures to stay in place either through suction, adhesives or metal clasps, dental implants are placed in the jawbone to stabilize your dentures and hold them in place. Since implants naturally meld together with bone and tissue this is the most reliable and durable tooth replacement you can get. Implants are also designed to last a lifetime with the proper care, so this is a restoration you know you can rely on for the long-term.
