Deciding to get dentures is not a choice to make lightly; they can be expensive and can take some time getting used to. However, if you have been dealing with tooth aches, loss, extraction, or decay, you might want to consider getting dentures. Your dentist in Seminole, Largo, and St. Petersburg will be able to fit you with a set that looks great and feels natural.
Here are some reasons that you should consider dentures:
- Health: If you are constantly dealing with tooth decay, you are walking around with an infection. Once the infected teeth are removed, your body will heal faster and get your mouth feeling good again.
- Easy maintenance: Forget about the pastes and powders you’ve heard about; properly fitted dentures will never need to be glued into place. Just a light, simple brushing after a meal and at night before removing will keep them clean.
- They look good: Gone will be the days of crooked or missing teeth; you can feel confident with your new perfectly straight and white smile.
Your teeth are an important feature on your face so make sure they look great! Find a dentist in Seminole, Largo, or St. Petersburg with the knowledge and experience that makes you feel comfortable.
The four main types of dentures:
Complete - These are the stereotypical ones you think of, that are a full replacement of all teeth. They can be a set of full upper, full lower, or both.
Immediate - These will be put into place immediately after tooth extraction, to allow your jawbone and tissues to stabilize. While only temporary, they require frequent adjustments while your mouth heals.
Overdentures - Similar to a complete set, these will provide greater stabilization while speaking and chewing, since they are placed over the remaining teeth.
Partial - If you are only missing a few teeth and you don't want to remove the remaining ones, these will fill in the gaps. These will also prevent future decay.
