If you are missing one or more permanent teeth, there is no reason to feel embarrassed or uncomfortable while chewing, speaking, or smiling. Partials and full dentures are removable and customizable replacements for missing teeth.
Shore Dental offers comfortably fitted partials and full dentures that restore the spark to your personal, professional, and social life.
Adult human teeth are meant to last a lifetime, but this rarely happens. We may lose teeth due to several reasons. For example, teeth may be lost due to:
We recommend getting your teeth checked up twice a year to detect problems during the early stages. Shore Dental offers emergency dentistry in addition to routine dental treatments.
Missing teeth can cast a shadow on our day-to-day lives as they cause the facial structure to sag. This makes us appear older and results in loose skin near the cheeks and jawbone.
Missing teeth force other teeth to shift into the empty space and change your bite. You may experience pain or discomfort while chewing or biting and have trouble pronouncing certain consonants and words.
The gap in your dental arch can cause bone loss in the jaw as the tooth root is no longer there to regenerate bone. Lost teeth may also spoil your smile and make you feel self-conscious in many situations.
If you have a few missing teeth, partials may be right for you. If you’re missing nearly all of your teeth, full dentures may be more suitable. A full denture set consists of a flesh-colored base with artificial teeth that are fitted on.
There are several treatment options available to replace missing teeth. Please contact our dental practice near you to determine the best choice for your needs.
