Missing all or most of your teeth can take a toll on your dental, general, and mental health alike. Eating, chewing, and swallowing denturesbecome more difficult, causing nutrition problems. It is also common for those with missing teeth to become embarrassed by their gaps, causing drops in self-esteem. However, dentures can help you take your smile back and give you the freedom to eat the foods you want and love the way you look. Learn more about what dentures can do for you with your Shelby Township, MI dentist at Sood Family Dental, Dr. Shikha Sood.

The Benefits of Dentures 
Dentures do more than just replace your missing teeth. Wearing dentures helps restore the functionality of your teeth. Eating, chewing, swallowing, and speaking become less difficult. This new-found freedom of aesthetically pleasing and functioning teeth also boosts your confidence and gives you a smile that you love. Wearing dentures also fills out the face, supports the facial muscles, and helps prevent bone atrophy caused by lack of stimulation. Dentures’ versatility also benefit the wearer. Whether you are missing all or only some of your teeth, Dr. Sood can help you choose the best denture for you.

Types of Dentures in Shelby Township, MI

  • Full Dentures: When you imagine dentures, you probably see a picture of a full denture, which replaces all of the teeth on an arch. This type of denture is best for those who have no remaining natural teeth.
  • Partial Dentures: On the other hand, partial dentures use any remaining natural teeth as an anchor to stay in place. The denture fits over these remaining teeth and fits around them.
  • Immediate Dentures: Immediate dentures are mostly reserved for patients who require extraction of their remaining natural teeth before wearing dentures. A dental laboratory creates immediate dentures before the extraction appointment, allowing the patient to leave their dentist’s office with a new smile. Due to their design, immediate dentures require adjustments after the extraction sites heal.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures. Finally, implant-supported dentures are the sturdiest and most effective option for dentures. Dental implants placed throughout the arch hold the denture in place, giving it a secure place in the mouth. Implant-supported dentures can be removable or permanent.
