Throughout your life, you had never expected to find yourself living with missing teeth. Despite your best efforts, you are now among the 120 million Americans who are missing at least one tooth. Now, your daily life, oral health, and confidence have all started to suffer. Although it may feel like there is no way to regain your quality of life, Dr. Peter Silver has the solutions you need with partials and dentures in Red Bank.
When a tooth is missing, it drastically impacts more than just your self-esteem. Every tooth has an important role in promoting your oral health and functions. When one is lost, it causes the underlying jawbone to no longer be stimulated. As a result, it will begin to deteriorate, causing your remaining natural teeth to lose support.
Over time, your teeth will begin to shift toward the open space, causing alignment concerns. This makes your teeth harder to clean, increasing your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and additional tooth loss in the future.
In addition, you will have limitations in your diet because certain foods become too difficult to chew. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies over time. You can restore your oral health and your quality of life with denture or partials.
Partial dentures in Red Bank are an affordable and convenient solution to fill the empty space. Prosthetic teeth are designed to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth to blend in seamlessly. They will be featured in a gum-colored base that is attached to a metal framework.
This allows it to clasp onto your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place. Now, you can chew, speak, and smile with confidence. In addition, it will provide your remaining natural teeth with the support they need to stay in place.
Complete tooth loss can be treated with dentures in Red Bank. Although they have a bad reputation for looking fake, new advancements in dentistry now allow them to look more realistic than ever before.
Impressions of your mouth are taken to create an acrylic, gum-colored base to hold the prosthetic teeth. It is then held in place using suction or an adhesive. Now, you can eat your favorite foods again and speak clearly without any concern.
To protect your new smile, it is best to care for your dentures properly each day. In addition, do not forget to visit your dentist regularly for adjustments to ensure a comfortable and secure fit for several years to come.
You do not have to live with the challenges of missing teeth. You can make an investment in your quality of life and dental health with partials or dentures. Dr. Silver will perform the consultation you need to create a customized treatment plan to complete your smile.
