The average person is most likely unaware of the importance of having a full set of teeth. The truth is, in addition to appearance, a full set of teeth can make a difference in your overall health and well-being. When you have teeth missing, you may not be eating the foods required for optimum health and your oral environment may actually be breeding more problems for you. Remaining teeth can move out of alignment over time, creating food traps and areas for gingivitis to develop more easily. Fewer teeth also add years to your appearance without restorative dentistry. Research shows that people with no teeth have a higher incidence of chronic kidney problems.
One way to prevent or correct the problems that missing teeth presents is by getting dentures. These dental prosthetics not only help you look better by providing support for your facial muscles, they also give you the chewing surface you need in order to chew your food properly. With dentures you can once again eat healthy, nutritious foods and chew them sufficiently so that your body can efficiently absorb the nutrients.
FULL & COMPLETE DENTURES
When you are missing all the teeth on either your upper or lower jaws or both, you need a full set of dentures. Made from acrylic with natural looking teeth, your dentures will provide you with chewing surfaces so that you can eat a wide variety of foods comfortably. Your new dentures should fit snugly and feel comfortable. A few adjustments may need to be made before you have the perfect fit. Dr. Welch will talk to you about what you may experience as you grow used to your new oral prosthetics and enjoy your new, beautiful smile with a natural looking dentures (partial and full).
When some of your teeth are missing on either the upper or lower jaw, a partial denture can restore your smile and your ability to eat properly. The partial denture is made out of acrylic, sometimes metal or may have a metal base with an acrylic overlay. The partial denture prevents remaining teeth from shifting out of place and also aids in supporting your facial muscles. When bridgework is not advisable or available because of circumstances, a partial is a great economical alternative.
