Missing teeth significantly affect your smile and your facial appearance. Several factors can contribute to missing teeth in your mouth. These include accidents, facial trauma in contact sports, tooth extractions, and underlying health conditions. Whatever the reason for having missing teeth, you will have dental health issues if you do not receive optimal oral care and treatment. Dentures have been used extensively to offer an effective solution to patients with missing teeth. At Canatella Dental we always aim to improve the dental health of our patients. We use state-of-the-art techniques to ensure that you get optimal treatment for whatever oral condition you are suffering from.
Dentures Improve Your Facial Appearance
When you have multiple missing teeth, your cheeks and lips can collapse inwards. This is due to the absence of teeth which supports these features. Furthermore, with missing teeth, you can lose gum and jawbone tissue which are important in maintaining a fuller facial look.
When you get dentures, they will offer a stable mouth structure. The dentures will provide effective support to your lips and cheeks, which will significantly improve your facial appearance. The dentures will also be important in shielding your gums and jawbone from receding, ensuring that you maintain your optimal dental health.
Improves Your Smile
With dentures, you will have a full set of teeth. Whether you get a partial or complete denture, you will have taken care of the gaps in your mouth. Gaps along your dental structure are common issues that can make you not have a perfect and bright smile. Dentures offer an effective solution and you will be able to have high self-esteem after your treatment.
How Do I Care For My Dentures?
Once you get your dentures, you will need to be sure to maintain care for them, so they can serve you for a long time. You will be required to clean them regularly either with water or a special liquid that will be provided by the dentist. This is especially true after meals. The material used in making dentures can get stained if not properly maintained and you will be required to get new ones since whitening is not possible with dentures. Also, clean your gums after you take out the dentures to maintain good oral health.
Overnight, you are supposed to take out the dentures and store them in a special cleaner or a glass of water. This will aid in keeping the dentures moist, and therefore maintaining their original shape and size.
Maintain Regular Dental Visits
Even after getting dentures, our dentists will still be a central feature in your quest to maintain perfect oral health. We monitor the state of your gums and remaining teeth to detect any possible threats to your dental health. Our dental professionals at Canatella Dental will be with you every step of the way to help you restore your dental health.
