Consequences of Missing Teeth
When you have lost one or more teeth you may begin to see serious negative effects. These effects go far beyond your mouth to include your whole body health. The effects of missing teeth include:

  • Shifting of other teeth
  • Stress on other teeth
  • Difficulty chewing and eating
  • Malnutrition
  • Difficulty speaking
  • Changes in facial appearance

Dentures can address these issues to maintain your youthful appearance, your overall health, and your self-confidence.

At Dustin Ford DDS

Dentures come in three major types. They can be either partial or full, and either traditional or implant-secured.

Partial dentures replace one or more teeth, but less than an entire arch. Partial dentures may be secured by clasps that anchor the partial to adjacent teeth.

Full dentures replace an entire set of teeth, such as all your upper teeth or all your lower teeth. They are personalized replacement teeth that enhance your smile, your bite, and even your facial contours. Traditionally upper full dentures are largely secured by the suction created between the denture and the roof of the mouth. Lower full dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by their fit over the gums and jawbone.

Implant-secured dentures are removable like traditional dentures, but they are held firmly in place by two or more dental implants. This type of denture gives improved function, is less likely to slip than traditional dentures, will not put stress on adjacent teeth (as partial dentures sometimes can), and will give you more comfort, security, and confidence.

Modern Dentures: Better than Ever
Technological advances have improved dentures in recent years. They are now more comfortable to wear than ever, as well as being more attractive. Experience from cosmetic dentistry has helped manufacturers to design dentures that look natural, not artificial. Today’s dentures can mimic attractive smiles without producing a fake appearance. If you have rejected dentures because you are afraid they will be uncomfortable or unattractive, we encourage you to take a look at today’s dentures. You’ll be surprised at how far they have come.
