Life after tooth loss will present a few challenges. You won’t be able to effectively chew the sort of fiber-rich foods that keep you healthy. And your self-confidence will be at an all time low on account of the empty spaces in your smile and your caved-in cheeks. But there is a way to boost your health and appearance and all the other things that go along with a complete and functional smile: dentures from Appalachian Dental Care. Don’t worry, modern dentures are nothing like the slippery models that were handed out back in your grandparents’ day. Keep reading to hear more about the possibilities and then be sure to follow up with our team to schedule your consultation with Dr. Airey.
Here’s what you need to know: dentures are artificial, replacement teeth, also known as dental prosthetics. They have been around in one form or another for about as long as people have been losing teeth. And, importantly, they can put an end to your suffering, giving you a restored look and a better functioning smile.
Dentures Can Improve Your Situation
If you have missing or extracted teeth, this dental prosthetic is an excellent solution for helping you with chewing fiber-rich food as well as for improving your look and elevating your self-assurance.
Dentures Come In Several Varieties
Around here, we offer full dentures, which can replace an entire arch of teeth. And we also have partial dentures available, which replace some of your teeth in a row. One way or another, we’ll get you set up with whatever works best for you.
Now You Can Stabilize Your Dentures With Implants
When it comes to dental implants vs. dentures, it is not an either/or choice. A combination of the two often works well for many of the folks we treat for tooth loss. Implant-retained dentures use special dental implants to hold onto the dentures. A ball-and-socket system holds dentures securely, but they can still be removed for easy cleaning. Implant-supported dentures also uses special dental implants, but they attach permanently using a curved bar. Remember, we can either create a custom set of dentures to attach to your implants, or we may be able to adjust your dentures to connect to the implants.
Dentures Provide A Cost-Effective Solution
We realize that the cost of taking back your quality of life can often be prohibitive, especially when you go to a dentist who has to outsource all of the restorative work. But you won’t have to worry about that with us. Our dentures provide a practical, affordable, and powerful solution for restoring your smile following tooth loss as an adult. Since it can take a little while to craft the ideal replacement teeth for your dentures, while that’s happening, we can provide you with temporary dentures.
