Missing teeth can not only be embarrassing but impact your ability to eat and speak.
Dentures are prosthodontic devices that replace missing teeth along one or both arches.
Dr. Andy Maples in Loveland, CO, has extensive training to restore the function and appearance of your smile.
What Are Dentures?
Also called complete dentures, full dentures replace all the missing teeth
along one or both arches.
Partial dentures fill the gaps in your smile by replacing several
missing teeth along an arch.
Traditional and Implant-Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures are removable and rely on suction and denture adhesive to remain in place along your gums. This adhesive can be messy and your dentures can still slip out of place while you are eating and speaking.
This type of denture relies on dental implants, which are titanium posts that are surgically placed directly in your jaw. The dentures secure to the implants for maximum stability along your gums, and are removable only by a dentist.
Dental Implant Benefits
Dental implants have oral health benefits, including:
When you are missing even a single tooth, the jawbone loses the stimulation the tooth root once provided, causing the bone to begin to deteriorate. Implants are the only restorative dentistry option that stops and prevents bone loss.
You dentist will secure your dentures in place. There is no need to remove them except for routine exams and cleanings. No need for messy adhesive, and you can eat and speak with confidence knowing your dentures are secure.
Prevent Sagging Facial Features
When bone loss occurs, it often leads to a sunken look due to sagging facial muscles. Implants prevent that bone loss to help maintain the muscles in your mouth and face.
