As people age, it can be quite normal to experience tooth loss. Periodontal disease, facial trauma or injury, and normal wear and tear are all common reasons why someone might experience tooth loss. Fortunately, in today’s modern world of dentistry, there are many options to replace your teeth and restore your smile. For many people, dentures offer the perfect solution.
Dentures are a removable oral insert that sits along your gums and serves to replace your missing teeth. Partial dentures are designed to replace several teeth on either your upper or lower arch, while complete dentures replace all of your teeth on your upper or lower arch. The team at Livonia Family Smiles will work with you to determine which solution is right for you.
Due to their customizability, dentures can serve to help many different people who are experiencing tooth loss. In addition to the obvious benefits of restoring the appearance of your smile, dentures also make it easier to speak in a normal fashion. In addition, they can restore your ability to chew.
In order to make room for dentures, your provider may recommend removing unhealthy teeth. The team at Livonia Family Smiles will examine your mouth and help you decide which option is right for you, ultimately working to meet your goals.
Initially, it may take some time to adjust to your new dentures. You may experience some soreness and increased saliva production. However, these factors should diminish quickly.
It may also take you some time to eat and speak normally as your mouth adjusts to the dentures. You will need to have follow-up appointments in order to ensure the proper fit and function of your dentures.
Just as with your natural teeth, it is essential to care for and clean your dentures properly. The team at Livonia Family Smiles will answer all of your questions and instruct you in the proper care and maintenance of your dentures.
