Replace the Gaps in Your Smile With Dentures
Dentures are one of the oldest ways to replace missing teeth. They have been used by dentists for hundreds of years. You might call them “fake teeth,” but today’s dentures look anything but fake. Today’s dentures are lifelike and functional. And strong. Dentures typically rely on fit to stay in the mouth. The issue is that your mouth will change shape whenever the teeth are lost, and so the denture is sometimes hard to fit in the mouth.
Removable dentures are the most cost effective way to replace missing teeth, but people unfortunately struggle to find good function with their denture. Some studies have found that denture wearers have only about 25 to 50 percent of the biting force that they had with natural teeth. That means so many of your favorite foods are off the menu. It’s common for people with dentures to to stabilize their dentures with dental implants.
Restore Damaged Teeth With Dental Crowns
Crowns are one of best resources when it comes to restoring damaged teeth. Crowns cover up smile flaws and protect damaged teeth. Our crowns are lifelike, strong, and last for years. And now we can placed crowns in a single day. When someone comes to us with many teeth that are less than ideal, our best bet is to use crowns to restore the mouth.
You not need crowns if you have a root canal, heavy decay, or if your teeth have worn down over the years. We can literally place a crown on each tooth if it needs it.
We’re using special digital technology to place permanent crowns in about 90 minutes. We craft the crown while you’re in the office so you don’t have to wear a temporary crown while the restorative is being fabricated. The digital technology also ensures that we achieve the perfect fit with your crown. The better the fit, the longer the crown will last.
Replace Missing or Failing Teeth With Dental Implants
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the strongest tooth replacement option you can get. The implants are made from titanium, a material that naturally fuses with jawbone. Once the implant heals with the bone, it is part of your body. The implants can be restored with crowns, bridges or dentures.
The one reason we dentists often prefer implants to other replacement option is because of the strength of the implants. The implants act like the root of your natural tooth and they are considered to be nearly as strong as natural teeth. That means you can eat whatever you want again. By just placing a few dental implants around the mouth to stabilize your dentures, you can eat whatever you want again AND you’ll never have to worry about your teeth flying out of your mouth.
A full-mouth reconstruction can be expensive and take a lot of planning and implementation. But, if you think your smile is too far gone, visit our office first before ruling yourself out for treatment. You owe it to yourself to fix your smile and enjoy the food you love again.
