No matter the cause of your tooth loss – dental decay, gum disease, injury – you will want to find an appropriate replacement method. Tooth loss negatively affects so many aspects of your life. It can hinder your ability to get proper nutrition, make you embarrassed to smile in pictures, and change the overall shape of your face. It can lead to further tooth loss, affecting the ability of your mouth to function properly and comfortably. Dr. Geoff Gaunt offers different forms of tooth replacement to make sure you can have a healthy, complete smile.
A good quality denture that fits you well can help you maintain a more youthful look, make it possible for you to enjoy all the foods you love, give you a greater sense of self-confidence, and give you less reason to feel embarrassed by slippage. When a denture or partial doesn’t fit well, it can lead to a number of uncomfortable and embarrassing problems. We also offer mini dental implants to provide patients with implant-retained dentures, which makes for an even more stable and comfortable denture-wearing experience. With mini dental implants, it may be possible to remove a large amount of acrylic on the upper denture, allowing better feel, taste, and more enjoyable eating.
Partials can also be made more stable by using snap attachments to secure them to existing teeth. If you’re looking for dentures and partials that will fit great and feel good, contact Dothan Cosmetic Dentistry.
