When you're living with multiple missing teeth, life can sometimes start to feel hopeless. Eating and chewing are challenging, and you may feel self-conscious about your appearance because of your missing teeth. The good news is that dentures are a great option for restoring an entire arch of missing teeth.
Here are 3 ways modern dentures delivered by our Lockport dental office will exceed your expectations:
Today's modern dentures take into account the patient's facial structure, skin tone, and tooth shape for a much-improved appearance over dentures of the past. Wearing a denture actually restores the appearance of your face, which can begin to have a sunken appearance when you're missing multiple teeth. Many patients claim that their denture removes years from their appearance!
Removable dentures rely on a snug fit and suction to keep them in place. With modern technology, we're able to ensure the tightest fit possible while still keeping the denture comfortable for you to wear.
Dental implants can be used to support a denture, which offers an even more secure fit than removable dentures. A few implants are strategically placed into your bone, and your denture is designed to "snap" into the implants. This gives denture wearers the security of knowing there won't be movement or slippage when they talk or eat.
Implant-supported dentures give patients better function than ever before while also protecting the integrity of their bone, which ensures the longevity of the denture. Patients are able to eat and chew with confidence, which allows them access to more variety in their diet. They also don't have to worry about slippage when they're talking or laughing, which means better self-esteem.
