Tooth loss doesn’t have to be the end of the world. Dentures could give you back your smile.
While losing a tooth can certainly make you feel defeated and upset, you shouldn’t think that your smile is just a lost cause now. While tooth loss isn’t the ideal situation, our Santa Rosa, CA, cosmetic dentists, Dr. Jeffrey Elliott, Dr. Luke Landeros and Dr. Robert Lund, make it easy to replace your missing tooth no matter the state of your finances, your lifestyle or oral health. Anyone could benefit from getting dentures. Find out what they can do for you.
Dentures are removable prosthetics that are designed to take the place of your missing teeth. These false teeth are attached to a gum-like plastic base that will sit on top of your gums. Besides replacing missing teeth, dentures also provide your facial muscles with the support they need to prevent them from sagging. Dentures also restore chewing and speaking.
Of course, people often worry about how they will adjust to their new restorations. Our Santa Rosa dentist will tell you that there is always an adjustment period with any new restoration you get. Of course, dentures offer far more pros for the health of your smile than cons. Yes, it will take some time to learn to speak or chew with your new teeth. Sure, there may be some trial and error with figuring out how to keep your dentures in place. But once you get the hang of wearing dentures, you’ll be so incredibly happy that you did this for your smile.
If the idea of dentures still has you a bit nervous, or if you currently wear dentures but haven’t found them to be what you had hoped, this is the perfect time to sit down with our Santa Rosa restorative dentists and find out how dental implants could be placed into the jawbone to support your dentures. With dentures secured to implants, your teeth won’t shift around in your mouth. Implant-supported dentures could provide you with a beautiful smile and the confidence you’ve been looking for.
