Embarrassed to Smile
When patients have missing teeth or bad dentures, they might be afraid to smile out of concern for what people might think or see. People with bad dentures also worry about the devices sliding around in the mouth. When you’re embarrassed to smile, it affects your personality. Some patients with bad teeth or missing teeth find themselves withdrawing from public situations.
Dentures Slip Around in The Mouth
For years, partial dentures were the most effective way to treat patients with sections of missing teeth or large gaps in their smile. A common problem we hear from patients with partial dentures is that the appliances slide around in the mouth. The problem is that the appliances are not fixed to the gums, so that makes it harder to eat much of the foods you love. Bad dentures can make it nearly impossible to eat the food you love or even cause sores in the mouth.
‘False Teeth’ Make You Look Older
Whenever the teeth are lost, the jawbone will begin to recede. This naturally occurs, and it causes changes in the face. People often develop wrinkles around the mouth and notice that their chin and nose grows closer together. No one wants to look older than they really are.
Our office wants to help those patients overcome their dental problems and achieve a more youthful smile.
Fix Missing Teeth With Dental Implants
Whenever we hear complaints from patients with missing teeth or bad dentures, we often suggest dental implants . These tools are nearly the strongest tooth replacement option in dentistry. Dental implants actually merge with the jawbone and act like the root of your natural tooth. Once the implant is in place, we can restore it with crowns, bridges, or even full dentures.
One great option for replacing an entire arch of missing teeth is All-on-4 dental implants. We’ll place a few implants around the arch and then restore those implants with bridges. One big benefit of All-on-4 dental implants is that the upper arch is left open, allowing the patient to experience more tastes and hot and cold sensations.
If you have problems with your teeth, please don’t hesitate to reach out for help. Our office and dental team is ready to help you. So give us a call today at 307-682-3100 to set up your visit.
