Missing teeth can be replaced with a set of removable dentures. The removable teeth are usually made of resin and set into a plastic base shaped and coloured to match your gums. Dentures can be made in metal or acrylic and have a natural appearance that will blend in with your natural teeth. Here are the facts you need to know about dentures.

With a 98% success rate, no wonder thousands of people are turning to dental implants to replace missing teeth. A dental implant is a prosthetic tooth root anchored in your mouth which fuses with natural bone over time. It functions like a normal tooth. Dental implants have improved the lives of thousands of people.

The loss of your teeth can have negative effects on your ability to eat, your bite, facial structure and self-confidence. Since your teeth provide structure and support to your face, tooth loss can result in the sagging of your facial structure, sometimes called a sunken face and make you appear older than you are. It is important that missing teeth get replaced as soon as possible.

IMPLANTS VS. DENTURES

TREATMENT OPTIONS

If all your upper or lower teeth are missing, a custom-made denture may be permanently secured using implants. The number of implants will vary for each patient. Your new teeth are firmly supported by the implants, stimulating the jaw and halting bone loss..

Everyone is self-conscious about something. The impact it has on one’s life can be damaging. Unfortunately, for many people who wear dentures, the experience is often one of extreme self-consciousness.

In 2015, a US Oral Care Survey (Biting Into Denture Care) revealed the negative impact dentures (also called snap on teeth) have on self confidence for people who wear them. One surprising result of the survey was that 53% of respondents said they received their first set of dentures at the age 44 or even younger. So we are not just talking about the lost confidence of the elderly.
