Missing teeth can negatively affect your overall health and your emotional well-being. When you come in for a consultation with Dr. Babb to discuss replacement options, we offer honest guidance and all the information you need to make the best decision for your smile. Dentures are a natural-looking, removable solution for missing teeth, and they will restore your dental health and your confidence.
Daily activities like speaking and eating are often taken for granted, but if you are missing one or multiple teeth, these normal actions can be a struggle. Pineville Family Dentistry offers full and partial dentures to help restore your smile’s health and appearance, whether your teeth are missing due to an injury, decay, or disease.
Dentures are prosthetic devices that are custom-made to fit in your mouth and replace missing teeth. The devices are supported by the surrounding soft and hard tissues of your gums and the rest of your oral cavity. These replacement teeth are removable, and you are able to take them out when you eat and sleep.
Though many people picture older adults when they think of dentures, this restorative option is a viable solution for anyone who is missing one or more teeth! Dentures are also an ideal replacement option for patients who aren’t candidates for dental implants due to poor periodontal health or lack of adequate jawbone. Pineville Family Dentistry offers full and partial dentures for patients missing any number of teeth, and we can help find the right option for you!
Yes. Dentures at Pineville Family Dentistry are well-made and very durable, but no dentures are indestructible. Proper oral care will extend the life of your dentures and maintain their appearance, but dentures will need to be replaced around every 5-7 years because patients' jawbones will deteriorate or lose mass if they don't have natural teeth or implants to support.
If you are looking for a permanent replacement option that will last a lifetime, dental implants may be a better solution for your needs. Call us today to set up a consultation with Dr. Babb, and he’ll give you all the information you need to make the best decision for your dental health.
