Let’s be honest, if you are too embarrassed to laugh and smile naturally without self consciously covering your mouth, if you can’t sit back and enjoy eating the food you like to eat due to missing teeth, your social life and confidence is not reaching it’s full potential. Contact us at Altona Gate Dental. We understand your dilemma and we know exactly what to do about it.
One of the options available to you may be dentures. The word dentures may bring to mind a member of the retired citizen club (let us add here, we love our retired citizens. Our point is dentures can be worn by all ages). But guess what? A denture can be a sleek, modern and stylish solution to the missing teeth in your mouth
Whatever the cause of your teeth loss, whether it is decay, weakness caused by health and medication issues, or by an accident and injury to the teeth, you need to have them replaced so you can be comfortable again.
Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth in a row. They latch onto the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor.
When your dental arch no longer has any teeth, a complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind that latches to the gum line or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
Oh, the end result! To be able to eat your favourite foods again. To smile and laugh freely with friends and family and show off that glorious smile in photos! What a fantastic result! Visit us at Altona Gate Dental. We can talk about the different types of dentures available and which ones will suit your needs.
