Your Compromised Teeth Can Be Restored by Dentures
Long-term problems with periodontal disease, tooth decay or major dental issues can severely compromise the full function of your mouth. Beyond impairing your ability to adequately chew food, they can impact your speech and leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile.
In a case like this, Total Care Dentistry, might recommend restoring the full function and appearance of your mouth with dentures. Of course, in order to do this, any other remaining teeth will need to be extracted to give the new dentures a secure fit on your gums.
Your dentist might want to take a few X-rays to get a clear understanding of your underlying jaw structure. Then, they will create an impression of your mouth, which will be used as a guide for the dental lab technician who creates your dentures.
Denture adhesives are a popular product that secure your dentures in place and block food particles from working their way between the gums and dentures.
If you have multiple missing or compromised teeth in your mouth, you should call Total Care Dentistry at 757-309-4450 to discuss replacing them with dentures in Virginia Beach, Virginia. We look forward to helping you in any way we can, and we look forward to your phone call!
