Despite new innovations in dental care, many people are still missing teeth. In fact, an estimated 178 million Americans have lost at least one adult tooth, according to the American College of Prosthodontists. Every single tooth is vital to your oral health, so it’s important that you replace them as soon as possible. Here at 32 & You, Dr. Ryan Bygness can bring your smile back to life with dentures in Denison.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

The more teeth you’ve lost, the more your oral health and overall health worsen in the long run. Your jawbone is no longer stimulated by the tooth’s root when you bite and chew. As a result, the bone starts to deteriorate. Your remaining natural teeth gradually lose support, eventually loosening and falling out altogether.

Additionally, missing several teeth makes it hard to chew crunchy, healthy foods like fresh fruits and vegetables. Your general well-being can suffer because of these nutritional deficiencies.

Lastly, your oral structures lose support for your facial muscles. This can cause premature dropping and wrinkling that makes you appear much older than you are.

Types of Dentures

Dentures have an unfortunate reputation for looking and feeling fake, but Dr. Bygness uses the highest quality materials to ensure your replacement teeth resemble a natural part of your smile. Depending on how many teeth you’re missing, you might need:

Partial Dentures

To craft a partial, we capture impressions of your mouth to design false teeth that mimic your natural ones. These prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored base with a metal framework. This framework clasps behind your natural teeth to hold it in place.

Full Dentures

A full denture replaces an entire arch of lost teeth at once. The acrylic base filled with artificial teeth stays in place on your gums thanks to a natural suction. Modern dentures are specially designed to minimize slipping or irritation.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Alternatively, a full or partial denture can be secured by dental implants. These titanium posts prevent your prosthetic from slipping and keep your jawbone strong. During your consultation, we can discuss your eligibility for dental implants as well as the treatment process.
