Why Tooth Loss Happens
Tooth loss occurs for various reasons, including infections and injuries. However, the number one reason for tooth loss in the United States is of gum disease. As this bacterial infection advances from gingivitis to periodontitis, gum and the underlying bone tissue are both destroyed and weakened. Without appropriate treatment, these tissues may no longer be able to support your teeth and extraction may be unavoidable.
What are the Consequences of Tooth Loss?
Tooth loss then creates issues for your oral and general health, too. Your remaining teeth may loosen and shift in an attempt to fill in the gap in your smile. Moreover, your remaining teeth are more susceptible to decay as a result of tooth loss. You also are at higher risk for infections of your teeth and gums, which may have been the initial reason for tooth loss in the first place.
In regard to your overall well being, tooth loss can dramatically impact your ability to speak clearly and maintain a nutritious diet of healthy foods. And of course, just knowing that people see that you have missing teeth can be embarrassing to a degree that begins to affect your happiness and self-confidence. For all of these reasons and many more, replacing missing teeth is imperative.
Creating a Natural Looking Smile with Dentures
Dentures can restore your normal oral function, so you are once again about to speak clearly and enjoy your food, including healthy fruits and vegetables. At Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center we create dentures that fit well and look attractive.
At our Ridgefield dental practice, we can fit you for a partial denture if you are missing one tooth or a few here and there. A partial fills in the gap by fitting in between neighboring teeth. This prosthetic consists of false teeth that are attached to a metal frame with clips; these clips hook on to one or more of your remaining teeth in order to hold the partial in place. Partial dentures are easy to remove when you want to brush and floss your natural teeth and when it’s time to clean your partial, too.
Ridgefield Perfect Smile Center is also the dental practice that offers top quality full dentures, too. We are very detailed in our approach to making molds for your upper and lower arches, and we are not satisfied with your dentures until you are. Full dentures have a gum-colored base that supports false teeth. We can design a full denture for either or both your top and bottom arches. With our expertise and desire to create comfortable and well-fitting dentures, you’ll be pleased with the results.
