At the Frederick Center for Dentistry, Dr. Sahil Goyal provides a wide variety of restorative solutions to dental problems. Dr. Goyal, along with Dr. Anshu Goyal and Dr. Politimi Mantzouranis, has extensive experience in treating patients who need to replace missing teeth. Full dentures are a great option for patients with full arches of missing or lost teeth. Patients who have multiple consecutive missing teeth often benefit more from receiving partial dentures. However, full dentures are secured with dental implants for a more stable and permanent end-result.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Not replacing missing teeth soon enough may result in one or more of these conditions:
- Shifting teeth
- Tooth decay
- Misaligned bite
- Speech issues
- Facial sagging
Over time, natural teeth shift to fill in gaps between teeth, which can lead to overcrowding. It is difficult to clean between crooked and overcrowded teeth, which means patients are more prone to problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Restorative care is more like preventative care in some cases as it can prevent more serious problems down the road.
Benefits of Dentures
Patients who receive dentures find they offer many benefits. Dentures:
- Provide long-term durability
- Reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease
- Improve biting and chewing ability
- Prevent facial sagging
- Improve speech
If you are missing multiple teeth and believe you would benefit from denture treatment, contact our Frederick, MD dental office. Following a consultation and examination, we will help you find the dental solution that fits your personal needs.
Fixed hybrid dentures Implant secured dentures are the preferred restoration for patients with multiple missing teeth. Dental implants will help to maintain bone structure while securing the denture in place so there is no risk of slippage. In some cases, an existing denture can be converted into an implant-supported denture, saving the patient some of the costs associated with this option.
Overdentures, also known as “snap-on” dentures provide stability and eliminate the need for messy adhesives. This type of denture also prevents the denture from moving away from the tissues in the mouth.
Made of metal or acrylic, partial dentures consist of replacement teeth on a plastic base with a metal framework. This treatment option works best for patients with multiple consecutive missing teeth.
