Patients experiencing missing teeth can develop other, more serious conditions that affect nearby oral structures and overall health. Solano Dental Group offers several forms of treatment that address missing teeth while taking the patient’s needs into account. Dentures are great for replacing a section or full arc of teeth using an implant, gums, or nearby healthy teeth for stability.
Also called removable partial dentures, this version of teeth replacement can be made from a variety of materials. They are built around a metal framework or a more natural-colored frame featuring connectors for a more seamless appearance. Partials replace a section of teeth with a detachable appliance and require daily cleaning to maintain a healthy and attractive smile. Some partial dentures require an adjustment period, but are effective at restoring functionality and can be relined for a more pleasant fit.
A full set of teeth allows for a proper bite and a confident smile. Full dentures are recommended by our doctors when all teeth are missing. Both top and bottom arcs are configured to allow for easier speech, eating, and general comfort. Each night they should be removed to allow your gums and oral structures to rest.
Fixed dentures refer to denture appliances anchored by a dental implant post. The posts are placed into your jawbone to replicate the roots of natural teeth. Both partials and full sets of replacement teeth can be further stabilized by an implant post and limit issues like slippage and the need for an adhesive application. Our office consists of a team of dental experts that review any previous dental work such as an implant or denture to determine what requires replacement for your most optimal smile.
Dangers of Neglecting Teeth Replacement
Missing teeth are an issue that must be dealt with sooner rather than later. Decreased support from adjacent teeth can lead to shifting of other teeth towards the gap and diminished jawbone density. Another common issue with missing teeth is indigestion, caused by larger chunks of food that have not been adequately chewed. Our high-quality dentures present an affordable and convenient solution personalized to your exact oral structure, working to prevent more complicated problems in the future.
