Improving Your Everyday Smile
According to the American College of Prosthodontics, 178 million Americans are missing teeth, and these numbers are rising. It’s a lot more common than you’d think. Some signs that you may need dentures include extreme tooth decay, inflamed gums, and other dental issues that cause significant pain. Other common side effects include difficulty speaking properly and a crooked or sunken-looking face.
Dentures can replace your teeth in appearance and function. Dentures are specialized to fit each mouth, and there are different kinds to choose from. Many people believe that all dentures require adhesive to wear, but supports are available that allow you to wear them without sans adhesive. Adhesives are pastes and powders to help keep the dentures in place.
If you are missing teeth, realizing that this affects more than just your appearance is essential. A missing tooth can cause other teeth to shift and put excessive pressure on your other chompers. But, no need to despair! Many options are available to replace all the missing teeth in your mouth, so let’s talk about some of your options.
If you’re missing a few teeth here and there, a partial denture could be the perfect fit for you. These removable dentures are a great alternative to the more invasive options for replacing missing teeth. We make out of a pink acrylic base or plastic base (imitating the appearance of gums), a metal framework, and crowns that mimic the appearance of natural teeth. You can place these partial dentures in the roof of your mouth, leaving your remaining teeth feeling supported and your smile looking better than ever.

Implant Retained Dentures
For something a little sturdier, there is the implant-retained denture. We place titanium dental implants in the jaw bone via surgery, and the denture teeth, generally made out of porcelain or acrylic, can be placed onto those implants. Some benefits of implant retained dentures include keeping the jaw bone engaged, which is good for your oral health and the strength and appearance of your jaw.
Caring for dentures is a critical aspect of maintaining good oral health. Proper care of your dentures ensures longevity and prevents oral health complications such as gum irritation and infections. We recommend rinsing your dentures after each meal, gently brushing them with a soft toothbrush and mild soap, and storing them properly. Regular dental check-ups are also essential to ensure that your dentures fit properly and your oral health is in good standing. At Mission Dental, we are committed to helping our patients maintain healthy and happy smiles.
