We all know that teeth play an important role in chewing and speaking, but do you know the true cost of missing teeth? Every time you take a bite of food and chew on it, your teeth are working, and the jawbone is being stimulated to maintain its strength. When you are missing teeth, there is no longer any stimulation to the bone in that area, which means the bone loss will start occurring. It’s estimated that up to 25 percent of the width of the jawbone is lost in the first year of missing a tooth. Eventually, this can lead to the shifting of nearby teeth and sunken facial appearance.
When we mention dentures as an option for missing teeth, many patients are immediately worried that the appliance will look like fake teeth.

If you are ready to find out more about dentures, we invite you to call our office to schedule an appointment. During this initial conversation, Dr. A will do a full examination and will discuss your preferences, budget, and desires. This is a great time to ask questions about the different types of dentures, so you can feel confident in choosing the system that is best for you.
Once you have decided which type of denture is right for you, we can move forward with the next steps. In all cases, we will need to take impressions and send digital information to the laboratory for fabrication of the dentures. This part of the process is crucial to ensure that the dentures fit properly. We want all our solutions to look and feel natural.
If there are any remaining decayed or damaged teeth, the dentist will extract them at this time. Following any extractions, the gum tissue will need time to heal. Most conventional denture services take several months to be complete. Many patients opt for immediate denture solutions to wear during the interim.
