Losing multiple teeth at the same time can cause serious damage to one’s self-confidence. Such individuals would be highly conscious of their smiles and oral appearance while socializing in public places. In such cases, their oral functionality would take a significant hit even on biting or chewing food and experiencing issues with speech. Hence, getting these extracted teeth restored at the earliest would be the best way to go about it to overcome these difficulties.
When it comes to replacing missing teeth, the go-to solution is dental implants. They are metal studs placed in the jawbone in place of the extracted teeth, and a ceramic tooth-like crown would be bonded to it. A simpler option would be a dental bridge - a ceramic restoration placed between the teeth and held firmly using crowns on either side. However, both these restorations are suitable for restoring one or two teeth. When it comes to replacing many of them, at Winning Smiles Dentistry, we usually recommend dentures.
Dentures are oral prostheses made from a combination of dental-grade ceramic (for the prosthetic teeth) and highly durable acrylic (the base, which also mimics the gums). They are removable appliances, making them highly convenient to use, especially for the elderly. Dentures are the simplest means to replace multiple teeth in one go, and their inexpensive nature makes them highly desired.
The advantages of dentures are as follows:
When you visit us at Winning Smiles Dentistry, Dr. Darian will screen your mouth and determine your candidacy for dentures. If you have any partially damaged or decayed teeth that you wish to get extracted, our team will remove them. Highly precise x-rays and digital scans of the mouth will be taken to serve as a reference for fabricating the restoration. The data collected will be sent over to a dental laboratory, where the dentures will be made in a couple of weeks.
Once they are ready, we will schedule a follow-up session for you. The dentist will place the dentures in your mouth and check for an ideal fit. We will educate you about its usage and maintenance.
We request you to consult with our dentist to get all your oral concerns addressed at the earliest. Please call us from your nearest location or schedule an online consultation, and we’ll be happy to help.
