If you have lost several or more teeth, it can impact your physical and emotional health. Teeth are important to ensure you can eat nutritious foods, and get the most from your meals. Many people with missing teeth can feel sad or depressed due to the change in their appearance. If you have missing teeth, it is time to find a solution to restore your complete smile and mouth function. At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we perform smile restorations with complete or partial dentures at our dental center in Roswell, GA.
If you have lost most of your teeth, complete dentures can be a cost-effective option to restore full function. Dentures have been used for centuries to replace missing teeth, but the modern versions are more natural-looking and comfortable than ever. Once all the teeth are gone from one or both arches, complete dentures can be made to replace the arches.
Complete dentures have a plastic palate and teeth that are usually made from acrylic. The design is made to form onto your gums – as your mouth gets used to wearing dentures, there is a natural suction that occurs that helps to keep them stable. Adhesive is also used to seal the dentures in place and keep small items like seeds from getting trapped between the gums and dentures.
If you do not need a complete set of dentures or a full arch, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures. These are a removable bridge of prosthetic teeth that have metal framework that attaches to your existing teeth for support. Partial dentures are an affordable way to replace a few missing teeth if you cannot opt for a fixed dental bridge or dental implants.
There is no reason to live without teeth. At Roswell Complete Dentistry, we make it affordable and accessible for our patients to find restorative dentistry that can give them back their smile.
