Why You Should Replace Missing Teeth

In addition to the chewing and aesthetic issues caused by missing teeth, another problem that can develop is bone deterioration. Without the stimulation of the tooth roots, the jawbone will slowly shrink and change shape, leading to a sunken and aged facial appearance. Plus, the remaining teeth may shift out of place over time, which can lead to a misalignment that throws off the bite and creates lingering jaw pain. Thankfully, all of these symptoms and more can be largely avoided just by replacing the teeth.

What are Full and Partial Dentures?

A denture is a kind of dental prosthetic, and the two main types are partial and full dentures. A partial is custom-shaped to fit between any remaining teeth and complete the smile like the last piece of a puzzle, while a full denture restores an entire row at once by sitting on the gums. Each is designed using an impression of a patient’s bite in order to find the right fit, and then minor adjustments can be made to create a natural appearance that suits a patient’s face.

What are the Benefits of Dentures?

Whether you are missing several teeth or all of them, tooth loss can negatively impact your smile, bite, and speech. Fortunately, dentures not only address each of these concerns, but they also:

  • Are crafted from high-quality materials, ensuring maximum durability

  • Last 10+ years with proper care

  • Support facial tissue for a more youthful appearance

  • Don’t require extensive surgery

  • Are cost-effective

Caring For Your Dentures

Like most things in dentistry, prevention is paramount. To keep your dentures in tip-top shape throughout the years, make sure to:

  • Always handle your dentures with care

  • Rinse your dentures with cool water after eating

  • Clean your mouth and your dentures daily

  • Use the right tools, like a soft-bristled toothbrush, when cleaning your dentures

  • Soak your dentures in a special cleaning solution at night

  • Maintain routine visits for checkups and adjustments

  • Avoid poor oral habits, like smoking

Denture Alternative

Of course, not everyone with missing teeth needs a denture. We offer a multitude of replacement options at Carefree Dentistry, and when you come in for your consultation, our dentist in Phoenix will go over all of them so you know what’s available and can easily select which treatment would be best for you. Some of our denture alternatives include…

Dental Bridges

While dentures can replace several teeth or even all of them, bridges are better suited for those who have only one missing tooth or a few in a row. This prosthetic uses a series of dental crowns to close the space, and it’s fitted onto adjacent teeth to give the entire prosthetic long-lasting stability.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small, titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone, where they mimic tooth roots. These can then be used to support a variety of restorations, including crowns, bridges, and dentures. Compared to all other replacement options, implant restorations are the most natural-looking and feeling because they are the only treatment that brings back an entire tooth from root to crown.
