An Attractive Option For Advanced Tooth Loss
When you have lost all or most of your teeth, a set of complete dentures replaces both rows of missing teeth. Consisting of upper and lower removable devices made from porcelain or acrylic, your complete dentures return valuable function to your bite while filling out your smile’s appearance. This dental option helps maintain the volume of your lower face that is often lost after losing teeth.
Your Leawood, KS, dentist offers complete dentures in addition to aesthetic partials and cast partials to treat a variety of degrees of dental loss. By scheduling an appointment to discuss your restorative goals, we can help you decide which solution is most appropriate for achieving a happy smile.
How Long Do Complete Dentures Last?
When you take proper care of your complete dentures, they will last a long time. The American Dental Association recommends changing them every 5 to 7 years. This helps you maintain a proper fit and appearance while adjusting to changes in the structure of your jawbone. For your dentures to last as long as possible, you must clean and store them each evening. As well as promoting longevity, proper cleaning and storage minimizes your risk of contracting oral infection.
Combining Dentures With Dental Implants
If you prefer a more secure solution for dental loss, our All-On-4 procedure can permanently install a denture using a set of 4 dental implants. This combination stimulates your jawbone by transferring the force of your bite through your implant posts. When we discuss your options for replacing missing teeth, we can explore the benefits of pairing dentures with implant dentistry
