There may be many reasons a patient experiences permanent tooth loss. Injury, damage, and disease are frequently behind permanent tooth loss, although it may also be a simple consequence of age for some seniors. In fact, up to 25% of older adults experience total tooth loss. Tooth loss takes a heavy toll on self-esteem and confidence, and it also impacts speaking and eating. Everyone deserves to have a smile they feel good about, and to eat and speak with ease.
Dentures have long been the tooth replacement method of choice for both dentists and patients, and they are still a great option today. They’re reliable, economical, durable, and attractive. Made of artificial teeth set into an acrylic base that fits snugly over the gums, custom-fitted dentures are comfortable and easy to care for. They’re also available in partial or full dentures, so they can be tailored to your specific needs.
