There are several reasons why patients need an elegant partial or full denture. Below are some of the more common situations.
While aging can bring wisdom is can also mark a general breakdown in how gums and teeth look and function. As gums recede, the lower parts of the teeth are exposed to food particles and bacteria. Tooth enamel also tends to wear away. These changes, as well as a dry mouth, make the teeth more susceptible to decay and cavities, which makes tooth loss more likely. When this occurs, to achieve the best results it’s important to trust your partial, full, or implant supported denture to those who specialize in restorative mouth health.
The American Academy of Periodontology estimates that 47.2 percent, or 64.7 million American adults over age 30, have mild, moderate or severe periodontitis, the more advanced form of periodontal disease. In adults 65 and older, prevalence rates increase to over 70%. This is more common than diabetes, heart disease, or getting the flu in a given year – combined. We take great pride in restoring function and confidence to those who need to transition from a failing natural tooth or teeth to an elegant denture system.
The likelihood of losing at least one permanent tooth to accident over one’s lifetime is estimated at greater than 50%. Even when eating properly and practicing great oral hygiene, an accident can cause tooth loss at any age. Our elegant single and full set denture systems ensure that an accident won’t define how people look, feel, and function.
A smile’s appearance depends on genetics and care. For many, their smiles simply don’t look and feel the way they desire. Changing this through an elegant, partial, full, or implant supported denture can have a dramatic influence on the way people look and feel. In fact, studies featured in Psychology Today note confidence in one’s smile is a key contributor to well-being in other areas of life – including social outcomes and relationships.
