Replacing Multiple Missing Teeth

Your teeth are designed to work as a complete set, so losing multiple teeth can have a profoundly negative impact on how you bite, chew, speak, and smile. As such, it’s important to replace missing teeth as quickly as possible, and dentures often provide an excellent way to do just that. If you’ve suffered from extensive tooth loss, give LG Dental Centre a call today to schedule a consultation and see if dentures can help you restore your entire grin.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

We typically recommend dentures for anyone who has either lost multiple teeth or is planning to have teeth extracted. Most patients with healthy mouths should be able to get a denture, but the only way for us to know for sure is to conduct a thorough examination of your grin. If we find signs of gum disease or other oral health issues, we’ll let you know what steps need to be taken to address them before you can receive replacement teeth.

Types of Dentures

What kind of denture is right for you? To answer that, we’ll need to look at your mouth and answer a few questions such as “How many teeth are missing?” and “Is there still plenty of bone left in the jaw?” Then, depending on our findings, we will recommend one of the following options:

Partial Dentures

If you have some gaps in your smile, you may be a good candidate for partial dentures. This type of restoration consists of a gum-colored base and prosthetic teeth that look natural in your mouth. The partial denture will fit into the spaces in your grin like a puzzle piece, and metal clasps will be used to hold it in place.

Full Dentures

When all of your teeth are missing, a full denture gives you an efficient, cost-effective way to replace them all at once. Just like partial dentures, full dentures have a gum-colored base that supports multiple replacement teeth. But where partial dentures need a clasp, full dentures mainly use natural suction to stay in place. (Denture adhesive can also be used to give your new teeth more stability.)

Implant Dentures

Dental implants are a unique form of tooth replacement that mimic your missing tooth roots, making them a more comprehensive alternative to traditional dentures. Four to six implant posts can be inserted into your jawbone to support a denture. Thanks to the stability of the implants, your new teeth won’t slip when you’re trying to speak and chew.

The Benefits of Dentures

Why do people continue to use dentures to restore their incomplete smiles? It’s because of the many benefits they have to offer, such as:
