Missing teeth not only impacts your smile, but it can cause a number of other oral heath related issues. Your Sacramento dentist at Midtown Dental can replace them utilizes dentures and partials, which offer a more affordable solution than dental implants.
Full Mouth Dentures
There are a number of different solutions to replace missing teeth. You can do this with dentures or partial dentures, or alternatively you can consider using bridges, dental implants or implant retained dentures. Whatever you choose, your Sacramento dentist will ensure that you maintain a healthy and attractive smile.
There are two basic types of dentures: Complete dentures that are used to replace all of the upper and/or lower teeth where there are no teeth remaining; and a partial denture, which is a removable dental appliance that replaces multiple missing teeth. Partial dentures can be attached to the existing teeth with clasps, or with crowns and bridges.
Additionally, it also prevents the remaining surrounding teeth from shifting into the empty space. When teeth shift into a missing tooth’s space, this can:
- Damage tissues in the mouth
- Impede your speech
- Increase the risk of tooth decay
- Increase the risk of gum disease
- Increase the risk of further tooth loss
Removable Partial Dentures
A removable, partial denture will occupy the space left by missing teeth and give you a full, natural looking smile. Both types of dentures will make it easier for you to chew, and will prevent your face from appearing saggy and drawn in by supporting your lips and cheeks.
