When you are missing several or more of your teeth, there are many things that change. You may be restricted on the foods you can eat, and you may feel less confident in your appearance. Some people with missing teeth may become depressed or reclusive, not wanting to be around others due to the holes in their smile. If you have missing teeth that are impacting your health and well-being, dentures can make a significant difference. At Johns Creek Dental Studio, we offer complete and partial dentures that can give you back your beautiful smile and confidence.
Complete traditional dentures come with two full arches, the upper and lower. The pink plastic portion is placed on and supported by the gums, and made to look natural. The denture plates are designed to stay in place on their own, but adhesive is usually used to seal the edges and keep them from slipping. While dentures do take some time to become familiar with chewing and talking naturally again, the process is quick. The benefits of having a beautiful, straight new smile again that is very functional outweighs the training period while you learn to enjoy your new teeth.
For those with several teeth missing, but with many natural teeth still in place, a partial denture can be an option. This is an affordable way to replace missing teeth on the upper or lower arch. The partial denture clips onto your existing teeth to hold the prosthetic teeth in place. This can restore your smile for more confidence and improved appearance.
Dentures have been used for centuries to replace lost teeth. The newer versions of dentures are more comfortable than ever, using advanced technology to improve the fit, aesthetics and performance. For those missing teeth on the upper or lower arches, it can be a cost-effective option to achieve a gorgeous smile again and enjoy full function for chewing and speaking.
