Are you missing more than a few teeth? We know what it is like! Missing teeth can cause problems with chewing, speaking and socializing. It can even make your face look sunken.
Beyond the aesthetic angle, having missing teeth for too long can damage your jawbone, leading to a gradual loss of bone tissue. The jawbone requires regular stimulation from chewing and biting to maintain its volume and density. Without a tooth root to stimulate this activity, the bone begins to deteriorate, potentially altering the shape of your face and complicating future dental procedures.
Fortunately, dentures can resolve many of these issues. We have a lot of experience using dentures to help our patients get back to a vibrant, dazzling smile! If you are looking for dentures in Albany, OR, Pinnacle Dental Associates is the place to go!
Types of Dentures
Dentures are simply a frame for prosthetic teeth. Depending on your needs, your dentures can either be removable or permanent.
- Removable Dentures: These are the traditional dentures you have seen. They are custom-made to fit in your mouth and replace several teeth, even a complete set. You can chew with them just like normal teeth, and they are easy to remove and clean.
- Permanent Dentures: The frame of this type of denture is attached to implants in your jawbone, rather than resting on your gums. This makes the dentures more permanent, like your own natural teeth.
Do Dentures Make Sense for You?
Some patients prefer dentures because they come with a smaller price tag than certain other dental services used to replace missing teeth. They also like that dentures can be easy to take out at night and clean.
If you have looked at other methods of replacing teeth, consider denture dental services as well. More importantly, talk to us about your needs. We can help you choose a tooth replacement option that will be most beneficial for your unique needs.
