Missing teeth can severely affect your oral health. They can change your bite and misalign your jaw. For the remaining teeth, it causes wear and tear on them as they overcompensate to fill the role of the missing teeth. Your intact teeth can also shift out of place, which can be painful and uncomfortable.
When your teeth are missing, it can also alter the appearance of your face. Your jaw relies on your teeth for support. When there are no teeth to depend on, your jaw begins to weaken. This can make your face appear sunken in, giving you more wrinkles and making you look older.
You may feel embarrassed by your missing teeth. They can negatively affect your self-esteem. You may find yourself covering up your mouth whenever you talk, eat, laugh, or smile. It can be difficult to feel confident in your appearance when you have noticeable gaps in your smile.
Missing teeth can also affect your daily activities. Chewing, eating, and speaking are complicated by missing teeth. You may not be able to eat certain foods.Your speech can also become slurred without the support of your teeth.
Fortunately, we have a solution to missing teeth at Echeverri Dental Center. We offer dentures to restore your smile to full functionality. There are several options to choose from, including traditional, custom, and implant-supported dentures.
Traditional dentures will replace most or all of your missing teeth. Our traditional dentures are made to look realistic and lifelike. They should effectively fulfill the role of speaking and chewing. With traditional dentures, you can reclaim your life and get back to your normal everyday activities.
Custom dentures are specially tailored to the specifications of your mouth. After analyzing your smile and mapping out your mouth’s measurements, we will design a custom pair of dentures that will complement your facial structure. Your peers might not even realize you’re wearing false teeth!
Implant-supported dentures provide more stability and security than traditional dentures. Implant-support dentures promote better jaw health by offering greater support to the jaw through synthetic tooth roots. The synthetic tooth root is made from a titanium post, which is connected to a porcelain crown by an abutment connector. With implant-supported dentures, you can have a fully-operating smile again!
