All About Our Dentures
Are you missing teeth? If so, then you are not unusual. Did you know that more than 175 million people in the United States are missing teeth? And approximately 40 million of those people are missing all of their teeth. Because missing teeth is such a common problem, there are a lot of different solutions available to help replace the teeth you have lost.
Dental Replacement Options
Some of the most common dental replacement options out there include dental implants and dental bridges. These are two options that can help fill the gaps in your smile and help support your other remaining teeth. Taking action and replacing your teeth sooner rather than later can help keep your natural teeth from breaking down or coming under unnecessary wear and tear.
At the Marler Campbell Dental Group, we offer the option of dentures as one dental replacement route you could take. Dentures are widely popular because they are easy to place and very customizable. A lot of people like dentures because they are removable and don’t require any invasive surgeries to place. There are two different types of dentures that we offer and the one you choose will depend on your oral health needs.
If you’re missing all of your teeth then you’ll be in need of full dentures. Full dentures are often referred to as complete dentures. They are made from a metal frame, flesh-colored plastic, and false teeth. You can start to wear them after your gums are completely healed and in good health. If you’ve had your teeth removed you usually need to wait about twelve weeks before you can start wearing your full dentures. Full dentures can look and function just like real teeth and will keep you looking and feeling your very best.
Partial dentures are great for filling in the smaller gaps in your smile. They are made out of similar materials as a full denture and can keep your other teeth from shifting and moving around. They help keep your smile strong and glad.
