Missing Teeth? 5 Things You Need To Know About Dentures

1. Dentures are not the only replacement selection for missing teeth. Dental implants used alone or in combination with a partial denture is often a better option for patients. Whereas a removable appliance replaces only the visible parts of teeth, an implant replaces both the root and crown of a tooth. This has vital implications. Dental implants can prevent bone recession that ordinarily occurs following tooth extractions. Dental implants can deliver patients the near-normal ability to talk and chew.

2. There is more than one variety of dentures. Most individuals are familiar with the removable denture that replaces a complete upper or lower arch. There are also partial dentures that are used for patients who have some original teeth. Partial dentures can be permanent in the mouth or detachable.

3. Even if you have worn dentures for a while, you may be a well-suited candidate for implant-anchored dentures. The essential factor is whether or not you have enough bone to support an implant. Bone grafting can augment bone in some cases. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Greg Ritchie to find out if you are a well-suited candidate.

4. Regardless of your tooth replacement configuration—full dentures, partial dentures, or tooth implants—you still need to practice proper oral hygiene. Removable appliances should be cleaned daily.

5. Even if you have no natural teeth left, it’s essential that you have a twice-yearly dental examination. Optimal oral health is a crucial component of overall physical well-being. Dr. Ritchie will examine your mouth for indications of diseases like cancer, heart disease, kidney disease, and diabetes. It is also a good idea for your dentist to examine the condition of your appliance at your visit.
