Missing teeth will impact the quality and appearance of your smile. Advances in modern dentistry make replacing teeth easier than you think. For many people, dentures offer a viable option to restore missing natural teeth. At Bella Hanono Family Dentistry in Alpharetta, Georgia, we offer diverse types of denture treatments to suit your dental needs. Here’s what you need to know about modern denture options for replacing missing teeth.
Dentures are essentially synthetic replacements designed to take the place of natural teeth that are missing. Modern dentures fall into several categories:
Dentures aren’t “standardized” fixtures — they’re custom-made to meet your needs. The shape, texture, and color of your dentures are specifically designed to give you a natural-looking, pleasing smile. Dr. Bella Hanono will make every effort to provide you with a set of dentures that are comfortable to wear, look great, and function, as much as possible, like natural teeth.
Although conventional, removable dentures have been greatly improved over the years, they may need tweaking from time to time to retain their alignment, function, and appearance. Conventional dentures also don’t support your jaw or jawbone, resulting in bone loss due to missing teeth.
If you prefer removable dentures, temporary implant-supported dentures might be your best option. Implant-supported dentures offer greater stability for your teeth and support your jaw to prevent bone loss. These dentures firmly attach to implants for daily use and can be removed at night for cleaning.
