Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile, they negatively impact the function of your entire mouth and, ultimately, your overall well-being. Natural-looking dentures and partials designed by Dr. Chi Fu or Dr. Kay Oen at Chester Hill Dentistry in Rye, NY, are excellent ways to restore your smile and improve your quality of life.
Today’s dentures are not your grandparents’ dentures. And there is no need to think of dentures as a last resort. Dentures are a viable solution to repair your smile. Innovations in dental technology have improved the reality of living with dentures or partials to replace missing teeth.
Durability, appearance, and functionality are the biggest worries patients have when it comes to dentures. Modern dentures – full or partial – are strong, look like natural teeth, and work properly so that you can feel confident about speaking, biting, chewing, and smiling.
Depending on your needs, there are different types of dentures that may be appropriate for your oral health:
Regardless of the reasons for your missing teeth – gum disease, accident, age, decay, or otherwise – if you are missing several teeth or entire arches of teeth, you already know how problematic it is to live with this reality. It’s difficult to eat, you can’t speak clearly, and your confidence takes a hit.
Missing teeth make you constantly conscious of your appearance. You may only be able to focus on the fact that you’re missing important teeth – and this fixation will project onto everyone with whom you interact. Whether another person is looking at your broken-down smile or not, you’ll feel like they are.
Living with dentures is far easier than living with missing teeth. Cleaning removable dentures nightly may seem like a pain, but you would floss and brush your permanent teeth anyway, right? Denture upkeep is just a different step in your oral health care regimen, not an additional step.
Your Chester Hill dentist will provide detailed instructions for the at-home care of your dentures so that you feel confident about living with dentures. Taking care of this restoration is critical to maintaining the good condition of your dentures and, therefore, your oral health and appearance.
Visiting your Westchester area dentist regularly to ensure that your dentures are fit and working properly is also an important element in your dental care. Getting replacement teeth for missing teeth does not take the place of oral health care. Plus, it’s essential for your dentist to keep an eye on your dentures – they are durable, strong, and will last for a long time, but dentures are not immortal. Over time, dentures will need to be refitted or replaced so that your teeth and smile remain completely functional and fabulous.
