Whether you have experienced significant tooth loss from trauma or disease, dentures used to be the only option to restore your smile. These removable dental appliances make it easier to speak and eat as well as improve your overall appearance. Crafted from a metal base covered in tooth-colored resin or porcelain, they are held in place using adhesive powders, creams, wafers or gels.
When you first start wearing dentures, you may find that it is difficult to speak and that they feel like they are loose and can be thrust forward by your tongue. Another drawback is that you will not be able to enjoy some of the foods that you used to such as:
- Coffee (Leads to staining)
- Sticky candy
- Bread or crackers with seeds
- Raw fruits and vegetables
Dentures do not look and act like real teeth; therefore you cannot expect them to work the same way. Eating forbidden foods can cause them to get stuck between your gums and dentures and create a very painful situation.
The good news is, full mouth dentures are not the only option for restoring you smile following significant tooth loss.
Anthem Periodontics and Dental Implants offers better alternatives to full mouth dentures such as All-On-4 full arch replacement dental implants. All-on-4 full arch dental implants will look and work just like your real teeth and only you and Dr. De Andrade will know that you have them. Are you ready to ditch your dentures?
