Rebuild a Beautiful Smile with Dentures
Although you never expected it to happen to you, you’ve suffered significant tooth loss. Whether you lost most or all your natural teeth in one or both arches, you need an effective tooth replacement treatment to maintain a balanced diet. Not to mention, a complete smile will restore your confidence and improve your overall quality of life. Now, you have multiple options to rebuild your smile. Besides traditional partials and dentures in Kansas City, we also provide implant-retained prosthetics.
What is a Denture?
A denture has been the go-to solution to treat tooth loss for over 100 years. Although they have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, they are now more realistic than ever before. Carefully crafted prosthetic teeth are held in a gum-colored base that is made from an impression of your mouth. It is then held in place using one of several options depending on how many teeth you’re replacing and your preferences.
What Types of Dentures are Available?
Your dentist in Kansas City performs a comprehensive consultation to evaluate your oral and general health to find an appropriate tooth replacement option. Depending on your individual needs, you may benefit from:
An entire arch of missing teeth is treated with a complete denture. They are made from a comfortable, lightweight material, so you don’t need to worry about them feeling bulky. Your denture is held in place using suction or an adhesive to enjoy many of your favorite foods again while also supporting your facial tissues for a younger-looking appearance.
A partial denture completes your smile when you’ve lost several teeth but still have a few healthy ones left. The denture is attached to a metal framework, which allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining natural teeth. You’ll help to preserve the teeth you still have left while benefiting from an affordable solution.
You can anchor your denture to your jawbone using strategically placed implant posts. This does more than just replace the crowns of your teeth. It also replaces the roots, allowing you to enjoy several benefits that aren’t possible with a traditional denture, including:
- Over a 95% success rate.
- Looks and feels natural.
- Eliminates slipping and irritation.
- Preserves your jawbone’s density.
- Lasts for several decades.
- Supports your facial tissues.
- Easy maintenance and care.
Unlike a traditional denture, the process to rebuild your smile with dental implants will require oral surgery to place the posts into your jawbone. The posts stimulate your bone to encourage new growth. Your jaw will fuse to the posts to provide a stable foundation for your denture. You’ll never need to worry about any slipping or irritation again while enjoying a solution that can potentially last forever with the right aftercare, like maintaining your oral hygiene.
