Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can cause more problems than just cosmetic dissatisfaction.

Trouble with daily functions: When you’re missing multiple teeth, you’ll have difficulty with many daily functions. From chewing and eating to speaking, it’s much harder to live your life normally when you’re missing most or all of your teeth. 

Pain throughout gums and mouth: Missing many teeth may cause pain in your mouth that’s hard to ignore. Your uncovered gums are also now at a higher risk of gum disease and periodontitis. Dentures can help keep them protected and relieve the pain from your overstressed natural teeth.

Teeth shifting and jaw changing: With gaps in your smile, your remaining teeth will often start to move out of place to fill in the gap to help with the workload of your chewing. Your jawbone also starts to shift and shrink down to accommodate having fewer teeth. Dentures and implant-supported dentures can help prevent these problems.

Luckily, you can find relief from the pain and discomfort through treatment from our dental experts at Ocala Smiles.

Benefits of Dentures

While dentures aren’t the right treatment option for everyone with missing teeth, they are a good choice if most of your teeth are missing. Before placing dentures, Dr. Evelyn will discuss the pros and cons with you during a consultation.

However, generally, dentures come with the following advantages:

  • Increased self-confidence: When you’re missing many of your teeth, you may not feel as good about your appearance as you could. If you try not to show your mouth, dentures will give you confidence in your smile.
  • Better dental health: Having missing teeth can impact your gums and the other tissues in your mouth. Dentures make your mouth functional again and often reduce pain and discomfort.
  • Improved quality of life: If you are missing multiple teeth, you may find it difficult to eat most foods. With dentures, you’ll be able to live your life more normally again.

While dentures do also have their drawbacks, they are often the best solution for many missing teeth.

Are Dentures The Best Restorative Dentistry Option? 

When someone’s missing tooth, our restorative dentistry team has a few choices for replacement. However, most of these options work best for patients only missing one or two teeth. For example, a bridge is a good choice if you are missing only one or two teeth in a single gap. A dental implant is also a good option for single-tooth replacement. 

But, if most of your teeth are gone, dentures are the easiest and fastest way back to a full smile and total oral health!

Dentures are an excellent choice for teeth replacement when several teeth are gone. Traditional dentures in particular don’t require you to have a healthy jaw or gums. Still wondering if dentures make sense for you, call our office today to learn more.

Denture Options We Offer at Ocala Smiles

Traditional Dentures

When you imagine dentures, traditional dentures are probably what first comes to mind. These are fake teeth that you can take in and out of your mouth. While some people prefer a more permanent solution, traditional dentures are an economical and reliable option to restore your tooth function.

While traditional dentures in the past used to be much clunkier and uncomfortable, advancements in dental care have made them stronger and better. We offer beautiful, custom, high-end precision dentures at our practice near Ocala and The Villages. Your smile will be unique to you, so it will fit your face and look much more natural than other forms of one-size-fits-all dentures.

After we’ve crafted your dentures and prepared your mouth to place them, we will instruct you on how to use them and care for them. You will be surprised at how comfortable these dentures feel and how natural they look. We will do our utmost to make sure you are happy with your dentures!

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures, as the name suggests, are dentures that are supported by dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium rods that serve as replacement tooth roots. Implant-supported dentures have dental implants inserted into the gums and jawbone and within 3–6 months are healed. A set of dentures made of custom dental crowns will then top the implants in your jaw for sturdy, long-lasting form and function.

Implant-supported dentures are marvelously sturdy and durable. Because the dental implants will most likely be with you your whole life, you can be assured that your implant-supported dentures will be sturdy and durable, too. Implant-supported dentures come in both removable and permanent varieties, so we will figure out which choice best suits your dental health needs. 

Implant-supported dentures are also great for your oral health! They provide added jawbone support that traditional dentures don’t have, so your jaw can stay strong without the worry of shrinking from not enough use.
