Missing Teeth? 5 Things You Need To Know About Dentures

Dental implants have revolutionized the way we look at false teeth. Whether it’s replacing a single tooth or a full set of teeth, dental implants and implant dentures from Cary Family Dental may have a solution to your issue.

1. Dentures are not the only replacement option for missing teeth. Dental implants used alone or in combination with a partial denture is often a preferable option for patients. Whereas a removable appliance replaces only the visible parts of teeth, an implant replaces both the root and crown of a tooth. This has important implications. Dental implants can prohibit bone recession that ordinarily occurs following tooth extractions. Dental implants can furnish patients the near-normal ability to chew food and speak.

2. There is more than one variety of denture. Most people are familiar with the removable denture that replaces a complete upper or lower arch. There are also partial dentures that are used for patients who have some existing teeth. Partial dentures can be fixed in the mouth or removable.

3. Even if you have worn dentures for a while, you may be a well-suited candidate for implant-anchored dentures. The critical factor is whether you have enough bone to support an implant. Bone grafting can augment existing bone for some implant patients. Schedule an appointment with us to find out if you are a well-suited candidate.

4. Regardless of your tooth replacement configuration—full dentures, partial dentures, or single implants—you still need to practice appropriate oral hygiene. Removable appliances should be cleaned daily.

5. Even if you have no existing teeth left, it’s crucial that you have twice-yearly dental examination. Good oral health is an essential component of overall physical well-being. We will examine your mouth for indications of diseases like cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes.
