People lose one or more of their permanent teeth for many reasons. Some experience severe tooth decay, whereas others suffer injury to the mouth. No matter the reason for your tooth loss, it’s important to undergo restorative dental procedures to return your mouth to oral health, function, and a confident smile. At The Waterford Dentist, our dentists near you offer restorative procedures with partials and full dentures in Waterford, MI.
Dentures are prosthetic teeth for patients who have experienced significant tooth loss. Partials are for patients who still have one or more original teeth intact in their mouth. Full dentures are for patients who have experienced complete tooth loss in either their upper or lower jaws, or both.
Whether patients are in need of partials or full dentures, the benefits of these replacement teeth can be life changing. Patients will notice an immediate impact in terms of their appearance, as dentures eliminate visible tooth gaps and return proper structure to the face and jaw. In addition, dentures restore the ability to eat and speak properly. This improves eating habits and nutrition for patients and allows for greater opportunities to socialize with others as self-confidence is enhanced. Overall, dentures provide a better quality of life for patients who are missing some or all of their natural teeth.
Patients require time to adjust to their dentures, whether they are partials or full. Initially, it may take some time getting used to eating, speaking, and so on when wearing your dentures. In addition, patients can develop sore spots in their mouth at first. However, these problems usually resolve within a short period and our dentists in Waterford, MI will facilitate your comfort by helping to adjust your dentures for an optimal fit.
Living with tooth loss can lower your quality of life in terms of eating, socializing, etc. Dentures are an excellent option for restoring your oral health, function, and appearance.
