With the holiday season coming on fast, it is important to take care of your smile to ensure oral accidents and injuries do not occur. However, if the worst should happen and you lose a tooth, do not fear as we can help you craft like-like prosthetics to complete your smile once more. An ideal tooth replacement to consider is dentures.

Dentures are designed to look and function as normal teeth would. Modern-day dentures are extremely lifelike and realistic. Furthermore, they can once again restore impaired skills that may have been lost due to missing teeth, including speech and eating functions. Dentures also fill in missing gaps in your mouth, removing the risk of plaque buildup in the recesses and the potential for tooth slippage due to destabilized gums.

Two well-known types of dentures are partial and complete dentures. Partial dentures can be fashioned for as little as one tooth, whereas complete dentures are crafted to replace entire rows of teeth. Dentures are fragile, so they must be cared for with caution. Also, avoid using abrasive materials on them including teeth whiteners and bleach. If you should have any issues with your dentures, speak with your dentist.
