Here at Skyview Dentistry we have a wide range of tooth replacement treatments that we offer our patients. Whether you have one or a few teeth missing and are looking to restore the beauty to your smile, our dentists will go through all the options available that would work for you.
One of these services we offer are dentures, one of the most common procedures done when there is a lot of damage to the teeth and either they have to be removed or they have been lost due to decay or accidents. Most people think that dentures are only for much older people who have lost all their teeth, however, that is not true. There are two types of dentures, full and partial, depending on the severity of your case and the degree of tooth-loss, your dentist will determine which option is best for you.
These prosthetic devices are custom made to fit comfortably in your mouth, whether partial or full, dentures will restore the beauty to your smile and functionality. For dentures, your dentist will have to create a mold of your mouth and send it to the laboratory so that your dentures can be created. Dentures are worn all day except for eating and at night and with the use of special glue they stay glued to your gums. However, it is common that they move around as they are not stabilized and held only by glue. If you are looking for a more stable option, it is now possible to get denture stabilizers.
This requires small titanium implants act like the root of your teeth and are fixed to the bottom of your denture so they will stay in place. Although it is somewhat of an invasive procedure, this option will allow for a more comfortable fit and prevent dentures from moving around or slipping out.
