Dentures and Partials (Removable Bridges)
DENTURES VERSES KEEPING YOUR TEETH
Dental care has advanced dramatically in the last few decades. There was a time when tooth loss and replacement with dentures was common, but with today's emphasis on prevention, the use of fluorides, and advanced dental technology, one should be able to keep their teeth for a lifetime.
While many patients feel that dentures may be a solution to deteriorating teeth, they are not without problems. The loss of chewing efficiency, facial dimension, muscle tone, and the inability of some patients to feel secure with their dentures are but a few of the many problems dentures can present.
