As much as we want to maintain our natural teeth, tooth loss does occur. Trauma, illness, decay, and even age can lead to tooth loss. For patients who are missing or need to replace an entire arch, full dentures are often part of the plan to restore your smile. Located in Middletown, OH, the team at University Dental offers dentures and tips for proper denture care.
What are full dentures?
Dentures are used to replace missing teeth. The main forms are partial or full. Full dentures replace a full arch of teeth on the top or bottom jaw. Partials replace a few teeth. Denture technology has advanced making this a cost-effective way to restore your smile. The restoration looks and functions as natural teeth. The general public remains unaware that the teeth are not your own.
Benefits of dentures
Having missing teeth can impact an individual’s confidence level. With dentures, the smile is restored once more. Benefits of dentures include the following:
- Dentures are custom created based on the patient’s face and mouth.
- They look and act as natural teeth. Appearance and functions of the mouth are improved.
- Without teeth, the face looks sunken and older. With dentures, fullness is restored making the face appear younger.
