dentist talking to patient about dentures

Thinking about getting new dentures, a dental appliance, or updating those that you already have? Lost teeth can interfere with your smile and interactions with friends. Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence as well. In addition to these factors, eating can become more difficult, and keeping up with a nutritious and enjoyable diet can be more challenging.

Today’s dental appliances come in various types that include implant-supported, conventional, and removable partial dentures.

The implant-supported denture is the best for stability and comfort. The implant makes the appliance act as a root. It can also help avoid bone loss and encourage jaw stimulation. They do not slip or slide like the conventional type because of the implanted teeth.

Some dentures are fully removable and inserted in your mouth after the removal of teeth when the area has healed. They can also be inserted into your mouth right after teeth extraction. This is an immediate solution so that you do not have to walk around with missing teeth. Your dentist will adjust the appliance after healing to ensure that it fits properly and is comfortable.

A removable partial fills the space where teeth are missing. It prevents the shifting of teeth while improving your smile and chewing ability.

If you have lost teeth due to decay, gum disease, or trauma, you will want to consider having them replaced with one of these options at Lovett Dental Webster.

The Benefits of Dentures

What does having a full set of teeth offer? You will be able to speak more easily, digest your food better through easier chewing, and enjoy your favorite foods. You will have better nutrition as you will have the ability to chew fruits and vegetables more easily.

Dentures may also improve your appearance, as missing teeth may cause the face to sag, especially when you have lost all your teeth. This affects the facial muscles, making you look older. Missing teeth affect your health as well as your appearance.

You should brush your dental appliance on a daily basis to remove plaque and food particles. You should rinse them after removing them and then clean them with a soft bristle brush. Use a non-abrasive cleaner to prevent scratching. Then you should place them in a safe space, covered with water to prevent any warping.

You may need to use an adhesive, such as a cream, powder, pads, strips or another form to hold them in place securely. Be sure to read the directions that come with the product.
