Losing your teeth can be a devastating event. Not only do you lose the ability to chew normally and speak clearly, but your confidence in your smile can drastically diminish. Experiencing these effects can change the quality of your life.
Further, losing teeth can change your face. Teeth help support facial muscles and without them, your face can seem to sag. This causes you to look older and more worn.
At Crestview Family Dental, we create both traditional and implant-supported dentures which can restore your ability to eat and speak. New dentures can also renew your confidence in your smile.
Treatment Planning for Dentures
Dr. Anderson and our team will thoroughly examine your mouth and even take pictures of it with our intraoral camera. This examination will allow us to determine the very best direction for you when it comes to dentures.
If you’re worried about getting dentures, don’t be. Because of modern technology, the dentures of today are nothing like the bulky, unwieldy ones of the past. Modern dentures feel comfortable and look natural. And, they allow you to resume your previous eating habits.
After the examination, we‘ll discuss your goals for your smile. You’ll be able to choose dentures that match your skin and your age, so that they blend in with your appearance.
Benefits of Dentures
Dentures offer many benefits to those who are missing teeth:
- Fuller facial appearance.
- The ability to eat a wider variety of foods.
- The ability to speak more clearly.
- Greater confidence.
- Younger appearance.
For those who want greater security, implant-supported dentures can be a wise choice. Implant-supported dentures can be more stable, especially on the lower denture, which can tend to move around. You will receive anywhere from two to four implants in your lower jaw. These implants will anchor your denture and keep it in place.
