Tooth decay happens to everyone, and years of untreated decay may leave you with missing teeth. Fortunately, dental advances ensure that everyone can flash a beautiful smile. For patients missing some or all of their teeth, dentures are often a good treatment option.
Full dentures are a good treatment option for people missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch. Full dentures are a removable dental device that contains a set of false teeth. These dentures latch onto the gum line to stay put. Good dentures look and function similar to natural teeth. With a set of full dentures, you will be able to eat, talk, and smile without hesitation.
Partial dentures replace several missing teeth. These dentures are supported by the jawbone and remaining gum tissue on the dental arch. If you have several teeth missing in a row, you might be a good candidate for partial dentures. Dental adhesive creams can improve the hold of your full or partial dentures. This ensures that they stay in place and do not shift as you bite, chew, and talk.
