Most people are born with a healthy set of teeth waiting to come in. And when those teeth finally all come in, people have beautiful smiles that make them feel confident. However, tooth loss can occur due to the decay that comes with dental care neglect. Other causes include disease, trauma, or injury. If you live in Manteca, Stockton, Modesto, or Tracy, California, and need natural-looking dentures, Dr. Mircea Mitu and the staff at Family Dental Center of Manteca are here to help.
If you have a decaying tooth, your dentist can extract it. However, there are some reasons why it’s essential to replace missing teeth with an implant:
Above all, restoring your smile will allow you to smile more confidently, chew your food better, and speak more clearly.
There are three types of dentures:
With partial dentures, small clasps attach to your remaining teeth and hold the dentures in place. Partial dentures are an excellent option if you’re missing just a few teeth. This type of denture is made from materials such as metal or acrylic.
Full dentures are used if all teeth are missing from a dental arch. Dentures are made from premium-quality acrylic and rely on suction to stay securely in place.
With implant-supported dentures, you receive implants that hold your dentures securely in place. The implants are placed in the jawbone, and many people find implant-supported dentures more natural and comfortable to wear. If you don’t like using denture adhesives, implant-supported dentures may be a good option for you.
