Some People Ignore The Problem
Many patients opt to do nothing about their missing teeth, at least not yet. Don’t be one of them! If you are missing most of your teeth, or an entire arch of teeth, you’ll lose much of the functionality of your bite. You won’t be able to eat the foods you used to love, and the fiber-rich foods that keeps you healthy. Plus, your appearance will suffer and, accordingly, so will your confidence.
Others Try Removable Dentures
It is true that for some folks removable dentures are a viable way to replace multiple teeth and make it more possible to bite into things. Modern dentures are more lifelike than in earlier eras and they are much more durable. At our Royal Oak, MI dentists’ office, we can give you partial dentures (this would be for large gaps in your smile) or full dentures (when you have experienced complete tooth loss).
Please keep in mind that, while our dentures do look great, and this option is far better than doing nothing, functionality is still going to be an issue. Sadly, it’s still difficult to get a good fit with dentures. So, there won’t be as much biting power as with natural teeth, and they may slip and slide around your mouth, though not as much as in earlier eras of dentistry.
You Can Take Back Your Life With Dental Implants
One thing we can say with certainty is that dental implants are the strongest teeth replacement option currently available. They come close to matching the power of your natural teeth and can last the rest of your lifetime with proper care.
A dental implant is designed to be durable. It’s made of titanium, a material that naturally fuses with your jawbone. That means you can secure your new teeth and enjoy a better-looking smile. Since implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth, you can eat whatever you want again after your implant procedure. Your overall health will get a nice boost as a result.
Call To Make It Happen For You
We realize that restorative dentistry solutions can take a little longer and be slightly more intricate than some of our other treatments. That’s why we try to help the time pass more quickly for you by offering diversions like headphones and access to Pandora Internet Radio. And if you’re experiencing any anxiety, you’ll be able to choose from three kinds of dental sedation.
All you have to do to get started on your transformative journey is call North Oaks Dental in Royal Oak, MI today at 248-712-1522 or contact us online to schedule a dental implants or dentures consultation appointment.
