Losing any of your natural teeth can be traumatic. Tooth loss occurs because of the aging process, injuries and cavities. Though missing teeth cause a big blow to your self-esteem, there are other issues that can be even more pressing. When you are missing some or all of your teeth, eating becomes difficult. Fortunately, there is a viable solution for missing teeth. The dentist can help you to obtain a pair of Dentures so you can regain your confidence and function.
Dentures have come a long way since they were first introduced to the world. Today’s dentures look and perform much more naturally than in the past. They are also more comfortable. To begin the process of getting your pair of new teeth, you will need to come in to the dentist for an examination.
The dentist will need to make sure you do not have any gum health concerns. If you have mouth sores, lesions or gum disease, the dentist will not allow you to wear dentures until these issues are completely clear. Since the dentures will be resting on your gum tissue, they can cause these conditions to worsen.
If you have any teeth that need to be pulled, this will be carried out before mouth impressions are made. Impressions are crucial for creating your new teeth. They will be used by the dental lab to create a custom pair of dentures. Custom dentures fit much more snugly and help to prevent the appliance from slipping around in your mouth.
In many dental offices, your dentures can be made on-site the very same day. Once the dentist is assured your dentures properly fit, you will be instructed on proper care so you can keep your dentures clean and your mouth healthy.
