Dentures and partials have always been a popular and effective way to restore missing teeth in your smile. Our dentists at Beau Sourire Family Dentistry in Mandeville, LA provide dentures and partials for many of our patients in the area. Why are they so popular and how can modern dentures and partials benefit you and your smile? Continue reading on to learn how they can benefit you.
A partial denture helps to restore individual teeth that are missing in your smile. They are applied to the surrounding healthy teeth. They are the perfect option for individuals with a few missing teeth that could benefit from a complete restoration.
Similar to a partial denture, full dentures use a supportive material as a foundation for the replacement teeth. A full denture set is securely fastened to the gum line. Denture adhesive can also be used to strengthen the foundation.
If you ignore replacing your missing teeth, it can lead to poor oral health and more dental restorations may be necessary. Your facial features may begin to sag due to limited stimulation. The remaining teeth may begin to shift from the empty space. More pressure may also be put on the surrounding teeth and increase the risk of cracks and breaks.
A dental implant-retained denture can provide your dentures and partials with a more stable and lasting foundation. This allows you to enjoy your daily activities with less stress and worrying about keeping your dentures in place.
