Missing teeth will not only affect your chewing, but also make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth looks sunken. Those who have multiple missing teeth may want to consider dentures for both cosmetic purposes and overall wellness. Depending on the number of missing teeth, you may need a partial or a full denture. During your consultation, we will assess all your options and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.
Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth in a row. They latch onto the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth. Even if you only have a few teeth remained, a partial denture may still work best because these remaining teeth serve as a natural anchor.
When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind that latches to the gum line or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
