ARE DENTURES RIGHT FOR YOU?
Tooth replacement is a necessity. You can’t continue living with missing teeth without suffering the consequences. Tooth loss only leads to more tooth loss. It also results in bone and gum deterioration and a litany of health problems caused by gum disease infection. Choosing to just live with the ramifications and limitations of tooth loss simply isn’t an option. The options you do have, however, are tooth replacement solutions that work at Restorative and Implant Dentistry in Pompano Beach FL.
- Partial dentures
- Immediate full dentures
- Conventional full dentures
People have many reasons for tooth loss. If you have lost your teeth or need to have them removed, our Pompano Beach FL dentists at Restorative and Implant Dentistry will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan to restore your smile.
Partial Dentures: Partials replace one or more missing teeth and are custom-made to your jaw. In conjunction with restoring your smile and improving your ability to eat and speak, partials also support the remaining teeth so that they do not move, promoting the health of the dental tissues and structures that are already in place in your mouth.
Immediate Full Dentures: Immediate full dentures are inserted immediately after your teeth are removed. While this means that you will not be without teeth while the tissue heals, they must be relined after the tissue in your mouth heals because it will have changed its shape.
Conventional Full Dentures: Conventional full dentures are inserted after the tissue in your mouth has healed from the removal of your teeth. However, during this healing time, you will be without teeth.
A dental appliance can take some getting used to and eating and drinking will likely take some practice, but if you experience irritation, you should visit your dentist at Restorative and Implant Dentistry. Your dentist will see you annually to ensure that your dentures still conform to the shape of your mouth, which changes as you age, and that your appliance does not need to be rebased or remade. We are dedicated to giving you your best smile, and we will work closely with you to ensure that you receive the high-quality personalized care that you deserve.
