If you have recently lost one of your teeth, you understand the frustration of adjusting to the new gap in your smile. Losing a single tooth can cause enough embarrassment, but losing multiple teeth or an entire row can cause you to lose hope that you will ever see your smile again. When this is the case, restorative treatments can place a prosthetic that presents a full set of teeth.
At your Avon, OH, dentist’s office, we can take careful measurements of your mouth to provide a full or partial set of dentures to complete your smile. Regain your bite while returning support to your lips and facial muscles after losing multiple teeth. With this dependable restoration, you can receive an aesthetically pleasing set of new teeth!
Losing Multiple Teeth In Succession
When left untreated, the loss of a single tooth can threaten the stability of your remaining teeth. If gum disease is the culprit of your missing tooth, bacteria that destroy your connective gingival tissues take root in your jawbone as well. As you experience bone loss from your infection, losing a tooth further contributes to the deterioration of the jaw holding your remaining teeth in place. This is because the nervous system no longer receives the signal to maintain density in the area of your open socket. As the bone erodes, neighboring teeth can fall out over time. When this happens, we can return your bite with a custom set of dentures.
The Difference Between Partial And Complete Dentures
We design partial dentures to carefully fit between remaining teeth when you have multiple dental losses that are not adjacent to one another. By carefully measuring the spacing of your mouth, we can restore each individual opening with a single treatment. This can provide convenience when seeking care. Conversely, a full set of complete dentures replaces an entire row of teeth in either your upper or lower arch.
Dental Implants Restore Stimulation Of The Jawbone
While dentures are traditionally removable, for your added benefit, we may recommend placing dental implants to secure your restoration. Inserting implant posts directly into your jaw allows your oral tissues to fuse and hold them in place for years to come. Your dentures can attach to your new posts and transfer the force of your bite. This returns the lost signal to your nervous system that the jaw is in use and requires nutrients for its ongoing maintenance.
