Before tooth loss defeats you find out how dentures might be able to help.
If you are missing several or even all of your permanent teeth, do not lose hope. Your Lindenhurst, IL dentist Dr. Brian Gniadek has the solution you’ve been looking for that will be easy to achieve and easy on your wallet.
What are dentures?
This oral prosthetic contains several artificial teeth that are attached to a plastic, gum-like base. Dentures are then attached to the mouth using metal clasps. There are two main types of dentures: partial and complete.
By the name alone, you may already be able to tell when these dentures are used. Partial dentures are designed for those who have several missing teeth, but still have some healthy teeth left. Complete dentures are used for those with total tooth loss.
What are the benefits of choosing dentures?
If you are dealing with tooth loss, you may find yourself staying away from social activities or nixing many of your favorite foods because it’s just too challenging to eat. But why restrict yourself so heavily when you can enjoy all the benefits of having teeth again when you get dentures in Lindenhurst, IL? Here are only some of the benefits you’ll enjoy:
- You’ll have a full smile again. No need to worry about smiling in public or fear talking to those around you. You now have a full smile to show off. Not to mention, having a full set of teeth will also make it easier to speak. After an adjustment period with your dentures, you’ll realize that speech is restored.
- Your budget won’t take a hit. Many people want to treat their tooth loss, but worry about the expense. Fortunately, dentures make it easier for many patients on a strict budget to get the smile they need without it heavily impacting their finances.
- Dentures are just that easy to clean and care for. In fact, when it comes to keeping your dentures clean just treat them as you would your natural teeth and brush them twice a day and floss daily. We can also provide you with more thorough care instructions so that your dentures last for years.
