Tooth loss is a serious oral health issue that affects millions of people from all walks of life. This problem not only dampens one’s appearance, but it also makes everyday tasks like chewing and speaking incredibly difficult. If the condition is left untreated, it can lead to further complications, including the deterioration of a person’s jawbone, a loss of facial structure, severe bite imbalances and dangerous tooth shifts.
Dentures are removable appliances used to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. If you have lost your natural teeth, whether from injury, tooth decay or disease, dentures can benefit your appearance and your health.
The experts at Irving Dental understand the seriousness of tooth loss, and that is why we work hard to provide patients suffering from the condition with top-quality dentures. A denture is comprised of prosthetic teeth that are supported by a gum-colored base. Through the use of special oral mechanisms, dentures are held securely in place at all times, even when the user is talking or eating. Our dentures provide patients with the functionality of healthy teeth, and they have a natural appearance.
Although wearing dentures can require some getting used to, most people who use them quickly discover that they can feel quite natural.
Irving Dental offers different options for dentures depending on the patient’s unique needs. If you would like to learn more about tooth loss and how dentures can be used to replace teeth, please call us at (972) 587-9277 to schedule an appointment.
