Why Replace Missing Teeth?

A missing tooth, yes, a single tooth can lead to a wide range of complex dental problems down the road which will sooner or later, affect your quality of life. The look and function of your smile depend upon each tooth and the supporting base such as the gums and the jaw bone. When a tooth is lost, even just one, the bone structure of the jaw can change over time as tissue shrinks inward, lending a more aged appearance.

Over time, the remaining teeth will begin to shift and change the fit and function of the bite. A missing tooth can increase the risk of developing periodontal disease and tooth decay. These issues lead to poor oral health and can also impact your overall physical health and well being. A healthy smile plays an important role in supporting long-term good health.

BENEFITS OF REPLACING MISSING TEETH

  • Maintain Your Natural Facial Structure
    • Over time, missing teeth might start to change the shape of your lower face.
  • Restore The Aesthetics Of Your Smile
    • Even one missing tooth could have a negative impact on the aesthetics of your smile. If you are embarrassed about your smile, it might be time to think about replacement options.
  • Support Surrounding Teeth
    • When you lose teeth, the surrounding teeth could start to suffer. Huge pockets in your gums create a lot of space in which plaque and bacteria could develop. If you do not get replacement teeth, this leaves your surrounding teeth and gums susceptible to decay and periodontal disease.

Dentures & Partials What to Expect

The process for placing a denture will vary depending on the type of denture being placed and whether dental implants are being used to secure the appliance. Dr. Welinsky will discuss what you can expect for your unique treatment plan.

If dental implants are being placed, this will be the initial phase of treatment and Dr. Welinsky will coordinate the surgical procedure with a local oral surgeon. After a healing period of several months, you will return to our office for the next steps in the placement of a new denture.

Dr. Welinsky will take dental impressions and a temporary denture is often placed so that you can get used to your new smile and the gum tissues can adapt to the fit of the appliance. In some cases, a new set of impressions will be taken after an adjustment period for the most stable and comfortable fit of your final restoration.

The final step is the placement of the new denture, which will either be secured to your dental implants or lined and held in place with an adhesive.
