As you approach your golden years, gray hair and sagging skin aren’t the only changes you experience. Due to aging, your teeth may become stressed and weak, making them susceptible to decay and damage — common factors that lead to tooth loss. While losing teeth isn’t always easy, fantastic options exist to replace what you have lost. For instance, high-quality dentures from Star Care Dental serving residents in Glen Mills, Pennsylvania, can restore your smile and oral functionality even after losing teeth.
A denture is a dental prosthesis that completes your smile after missing teeth. Complete dentures are used when you are missing teeth in an entire arch of the teeth. These dentures are held in place by suction or adhesives. Partial dentures are ideal if you miss some teeth as long as they are in the same row. Partials are held in place by clasps attached to the surrounding natural teeth.
If you don’t want to wait for weeks before receiving permanent dentures, we have immediate dentures installed as soon as your teeth are extracted. However, these dentures require frequent adjustments as your gums adjust to tooth loss.
For patients who want a more permanent option, we recommend implant-retained dentures. These dentures are held in place by dental implants placed strategically in your mouth. Since implants are deeply rooted in the jawbone, implant-supported dentures never shift or move when eating, talking, or smiling.
