What are dentures?
Dentures are replacement teeth that fit your mouth and fill in the surrounding tissue. Dentures come in two types: complete dentures and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are used when you are missing all of your teeth whereas partial dentures are suitable when some of your natural teeth remain.
Complete dentures are either conventional or immediate. Conventional refers to dentures that are made after all your teeth are removed. Dr. Motwani waits until the tissue in your mouth heals before fitting your dentures.
For those who don’t want to wait for the tissue to heal, immediate dentures allow you to wear your new teeth right away.
It used to be that dentures were one of the only answers for missing teeth. At Warminster Dental Arts, it’s possible to have surgical dental implants instead.
For those who qualify, dental implants are permanent artificial teeth. Dental implants use synthetic structures in the same area as your tooth’s root as a foundation for an artificial tooth or permanent bridge.
Dental implants mimic the look and feel of natural teeth, making them an excellent choice for the right candidate. Since dental implants need a strong foundation, you must have enough bone density and proper bone structure.
Both dentures and dental implants are the most common options to replace your missing teeth. Dentures are a quality choice, but some might slip out of place while speaking or eating without a proper denture adhesive.
If your jaw and gums are healthy, dental implants may work better when surgically implanted. You don’t have to worry about slippage.
As a substitute to dentures, dental implants are a popular choice for those with one or two missing teeth. However, they can be an ideal alternative to dentures even if you have several missing teeth.
Dr. Motwani at Warminster Dental Arts has helped men and women look and feel younger with natural-looking artificial teeth for more than 20 years.
