Why Would Someone Need Dentures?
The most obvious reason why a patient might need dentures is that they have lost their teeth, either due to injury, disease, or decay over time. For many older generations, proper oral hygiene was not stressed enough and seniors often seek dentures as a way to improve their quality of life after living without a full set of teeth for so long.
Dentures are a good alternative option when implants cannot be secured in a patient’s jaw. Patients may want to replace their existing teeth without having to undergo surgery, as is the case with dental implants. Regardless of why a patient comes to our office, we will sit down with them and determine the best solution to help them replace their missing teeth.
What is the Difference Between Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures?
The major difference between complete dentures and partial dentures is that complete dentures cover the entire jaw, either top or bottom, or both. They replace all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. Partial dentures typically replace only a few teeth in a patient’s mouth. They are attached to surrounding teeth and are easily removed for cleaning and replacement when necessary.
Complete and partial dentures will need to be cleaned and maintained in order to prevent damage from occurring. They are usually replaced every 3-8 years.
What are the Benefits of Dentures?
Whether you choose to go with complete or partial dentures, the benefits are the same: you will have a full set of teeth which means that your speech, breathing, and eating will be improved significantly, especially if you have had missing teeth for some time.
What’s more, wearing dentures can restore the shape of the skin on your face – you may notice that people look very different when their teeth are removed or when they take their dentures out. This aids in speech as well.
