Benefits of Tooth Replacement
Dental prosthetics are a substitute for your natural teeth and the tissues that surrounds them. Whether you are having dentures, a bridge or a single implant fitted, the process is generally known as tooth replacement. Ranging from a complete set that replaces all of your teeth, to partial dentures designed to replace only a few missing teeth.
Each tooth replacement case is treated on its own merit by Garden Square Dental, and so it is challenging to recommend any one particular treatment. The patient’s requirements are discussed with their dentist before any treatment is scheduled.
If missing teeth or decayed teeth are not replaced, it can cause further dental problems. These problems could be the spread of gum disease (periodontitis) and premature ageing. Premature ageing can be caused by the face muscles beginning to sag where there is no longer tooth and bone structure to support them.
Dentures can also help people regain their self-confidence after tooth loss, and a normal healthy-looking smile is attainable even by those with few or no teeth.
Dentures are easy to care for and require little maintenance to keep them in excellent condition, even over the long term.
