There are many reasons your teeth could be lost such as advanced gum disease, tooth fractures, or severe tooth decay. These conditions can impact your life in very serious and costly ways. If you have lost multiple teeth, then dentures could be a great option for you.
Dentures are essentially known for being false teeth. However, thanks to the advances in modern dentistry, dentures can be custom-made and color-matched to look exactly like natural teeth. They are removable, and you can choose to only have upper teeth, lower teeth or perhaps both. Either way, dentures are effective tooth replacement options in most cases.
Dentures can be supported by dental implants, which locks the dentures tightly into place. These are ideal for many who do not like the idea of dentures slipping while talking or chewing. To have denture-supported implants, your dentist, Dr. Jason Roe, might need to take a few x-rays to see the structure and strength of your jaw to determine if they are right for you.
Once your dentist has the dentures fitted to your unique specifications, he can examine them and how they look in your mouth. Many people like to use denture adhesive to secure them in place as they go throughout the day if they do not have implant supported dentures.
