Missing or weak teeth require immediate attention. If left untreated, missing teeth can lead to countless problems, like the ones listed below:
- Jawbone deterioration
- Difficulty chewing
- Trouble speaking properly
- Aged appearance
- Nutrition deficit
- Low self-esteem
Are you in need of comfortable and affordable replacement teeth? Come talk with our talented restorative dentist, Dr. Monty Bulzomi. He has a great solution for you. He can teach you all about your denture options, including partial, full, flexible, and traditional dentures.
If you are only missing a few teeth, you may choose to go with partial dentures. Partial dentures are designed to replace two or more adjacent teeth. To stay in place, partial dentures seal to the remaining section of gumline.
Are you missing an entire arch of teeth? Full dentures replace all of the teeth in the upper or lower arch. These dentures will anchor themselves by sealing onto the full arch of remaining gum line.
Some patients find that flexible dentures offer better esthetics and more comfort than traditional dentures do. Flexible dentures are easy to insert and remove from the mouth because they are bendable. Even if your teeth shift slightly over time, your flexible dentures can adjust to your new smile and continue to function correctly.
Not all patients are candidates for flexible dentures. Traditional dentures are the tried and true method for multiple tooth replacement. This style offers more support to a weak jawbone than the flexible style does. Traditional dentures may be best for you, especially if you are missing the majority of your teeth.
