When your teeth are healthy and functional, not only do they provide you with a nice smile, more importantly, they make it possible for you to get the most nourishment out of the food you eat. Missing teeth can cause a variety of dental and general health problems. At Penn Avenue Family Dental, we offer a variety of options for the replacement of missing teeth or damaged teeth that need to be replaced.
Options for A Natural-Looking Smile
When you have teeth replaced, you want to make sure the artificial teeth look and feel natural. Our dentist is skilled at producing dentures that give you a beautiful natural-looking smile and that feel and function well.
In previous years, options for replacement of lost teeth were limited. Removable dentures were the standard. Depending on how many teeth needed replacement, you could get full dentures that would replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch or partial dentures for patients with a few teeth missing. Today, in addition to removable dentures, you also have the options of implant dentures and overdentures.
Implant-supported dentures have many advantages over traditional removable dentures. They require less upkeep and can be easier to maintain. Though they are more costly than traditional dentures, many individuals find the advantages worth the added expense.
Dentures for Oral Health
Research has discovered that people who are missing all their teeth have a higher rate of chronic kidney disease. Without an adequate chewing surface, the body is missing out on important nutrients derived from eating healthy foods. Dentures restore your oral health and help you maintain general health as well by restoring your ability to eat those foods that will best nourish your body.
In addition to restoring your ability to eat well, dentures will also restore a youthful appearance to your face. Missing teeth cause the lips to collapse and the cheeks to appear sunken. With those missing teeth restored, your cheeks and lips once again have support and structure, which can help you look younger.
