Going without teeth isn’t an option. You need teeth to eat and even to talk properly. Finding ways to replace missing teeth has been a priority for man throughout the ages. Today, we have multiple restorative dentistry options for replacing the teeth we lose to decay or accident. Dentures, often referred to as “false teeth,” remain the most popular option.
Well-fitting dentures can greatly enhance your quality of life. They allow you to enjoy the foods you love, including that crispy apple or a juicy steak. Properly designed dentures also make a big impact on your facial features. They maintain the shape of your face like your natural teeth would. They give you back the confidence to offer a full smile that looks inviting and totally natural.
Dentures are worn daily, so comfort is extremely important. At South Blvd Dentistry, we take pride in accurately fitting the dentures for our patients. It still may take some time for you to adjust to these new teeth, but that’s a normal part of the process. Once that adjustment period has passed, your dentures will become a normal part of your life.
Not everyone needs to have all their teeth removed before being fitted for dentures. You can benefit greatly from partial dentures that replace only a few missing teeth. Partial dentures have the added advantage of existing teeth to help stabilize them and hold them in place.
Dentures, whether partial or full sets, do have a limited lifetime. Having your dentures crack or break at an inopportune time can be very frustrating. If your dentures are 10 years old or older, it may be time to be fitted for new ones. Contact South Blvd Dentistry today and schedule an appointment. We can examine your existing dentures for evidence of wear or weakness. We can also provide you a quote on replacing your dentures with a new set that can last you another decade or more.
