If you are missing some or all of your teeth or you are facing dental extractions, you are probably wondering if dentures are right for you.At Northview Dental of Kokomo, we create full and partial dentures that look and feel great so our patients can enjoy an excellent quality of life.
Completing your smile with dentures is about more than just appearances. The proper denture can give you a beautiful smile and help you eat a healthy diet. If your dentures slip, move, fall out, or cause sores, you may not be able to eat the healthy foods you love. Ill-fitting dentures can also keep you from enjoying social gatherings with your friends and loved ones.
At Northview Dental of Kokomo, we offer solutions!
If you face extraction of all your teeth on your upper or lower arch, a complete denture might be right for you. Many patients have concerns about how their dentures will look or fit. Dentures have come a long way in the last decade and now look and function better than ever! We will discuss the look you want for your smile and determine if a complete denture will fit well enough to give you the freedom of a healthy diet and a confident smile.
For patients with bone loss, fitting a complete denture may pose a challenge. Our dentists provide a solution to secure your dentures and give you added stability. Implant-retained dentures combine the science of dental implants with the economics of complete dentures. We can place several (usually four) dental implants on your upper and lower arch. These dental implants allow your dentures to lock in place and stay put when you need them most. You can avoid the pain of denture sores and the embarrassment that ill-fitting dentures cause.
If you still have some of your remaining natural teeth, a partial denture can use those teeth as an anchor. We meticulously match your partial denture to your existing teeth so your smile appears seamless.
Of course, your remaining teeth are important to the comfort and fit of your partial denture. Caring for them properly so that you can avoid continued tooth loss will prolong the usefulness of your partial denture. Be sure to brush, floss, and keep your regularly scheduled dental exams and dental cleaning appointments to preserve the health, beauty, and comfort of your smile.
