Missing teeth cause a variety of problems depending on which teeth are missing and how many. One or two missing teeth may seem like an inconvenience. As the number increases so do the problems. Even one missing tooth can alter your looks considerably over time if it is not replaced. Several missing teeth can affect your overall health as your eating habits change to accommodate fewer chewing and biting surfaces. Louisville residents can call on Springhurst Hills Dentistry for restorative dentistry to get things back the way they were meant to be. Partial and full dentures are removable devices that have artificial teeth constructed to look like your own teeth. Our dentures and partials are well made to fit comfortably, provide your facial muscles with the support they need, and give you back a beautiful smile.
Missing teeth affect your looks, your speech and your nutrition. Your teeth provide support for facial muscles and soft tissues. When those teeth are missing the cheeks begin to cave in, adding years to your appearance. Your nutrition is affected because you can no longer chew your food the way your body needs you to for the best absorption of nutrients. You also may be eating a less nutritious diet because of missing teeth. Dr. Tran will make an assessment of your case and provide you with a set of dentures that will take years off your appearance, allow you to eat as you should and as you would like to. Restoration of missing teeth will also improve your speech which often changes when teeth are missing.
You may not need full dentures. You may have many teeth missing, yet still have enough solid teeth that a full denture is not called for. If several back teeth are missing, you may not be a candidate for bridge work, but a partial denture may serve you well. Partials are also used to fill in other vacant areas as well.
Your oral health and well-being are of prime concern at Springhurst Hills Dentistry. If you have missing teeth, do not ignore those spaces. Let Dr. Tran restore your mouth to a healthy, aesthetically pleasing state. Contact us today for an appointment.
