No matter how well you keep up with your oral care, wear and tear will take its toll on your mouth. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing will keep your mouth healthy and clean, but as the years pass, injuries will occur, teeth may crack or fall out, and a non-regular regiment of dental appointments might catch up with you. Losing teeth can take place as you age, and without a good set of teeth, eating, talking, and motor functions in the mouth can suffer. Instead of allowing this to happen, you should seek professional to acquire a replacement set of teeth. There are no better options than Downtown Dental, which houses the office of Dr. Don Mungcal and his wonderful staff of dental professionals.
Do I Need Dentures?
If you lost your teeth, no matter the cause, replacing missing teeth will ultimately benefit your appearance and your health. How? Dentures can help you eat and speak. It may seem like a no-brainer, but these are attributes everyone takes for granted. Your teeth obviously help you chew, but they also provide form and function to the mouth, which plays a vital role in speech. Without a proper set of teeth, these otherwise simple tasks are much harder.
There are three types of dentures available for those who need replacement teeth:
- Conventional: These are fully removable dentures that are made and placed in the mouth after remaining teeth are removed and gums have healed.
- Immediate: These dentures are inserted in the mouth the same day the remaining teeth are removed. The doctor will measure and model your mouth and jaw to create the perfect set. These are usually used during the healing period, before conventional dentures are made.
- Overdenture: If some of your remaining teeth can be saved, this type of denture is the way to go. It fits around the remaining teeth to create a natural, beautiful smile.
