State-of-the-art Dentures Help O’Fallon Dental Patients Rebuild Smiles

If you have been researching solutions for missing teeth, then you have probably already learned about restorative dentures. Although dentures are tried and true dental prosthetics, which have been used for centuries, they have come a long way over time. Today our O’Fallon denture dentists are going to be talking about some of the benefits of modern day dentures. Let’s get started!

Dentures are replacement teeth that are attached, and are used to replace multiple consecutive teeth. Traditionally these dentures stayed in place because the base of the denture is customized to the patient’s gum tissue, and dental adhesive further stabilizes the prosthetic.

Today’s dentures can actually be held in place permanently by small dental implant roots. These titanium roots are implanted into the patient’s jawbone, and then the denture is affixed on top of these roots. Obviously, this gives the patient an exceptionally stable and reliable denture. Additionally, the dental implant roots can help to bolster and maintain strong jawbone density.

The dentures that our O’Fallon dentists use are also customized to suit the aesthetics of each individual patient. These are not the dreaded one-size-fits-all dentures of the past. The shade of the denture is designed to blend with the patient’s natural teeth, and enhance the patient’s overall appearance. The size and the shape of the replacement teeth will also be thoughtfully chosen to provide natural looking results.
