When you are missing all your teeth on either your upper or lower arch, you are in need of a full set of dentures. The dentures restore the chewing surfaces so you can eat healthy foods again. They also provide support for your face muscles and lips, eliminating that sunken-in look that happens when teeth are missing.
Do you live with tooth loss? Over 35 million Americans wear or are in need of dentures, so if this is something you are considering, you are in good company.
Regular dentures are fine and actually necessary for good oral health when you have many teeth missing. However, they also present hassles that some may find frustrating and, at times, embarrassing. As we age, without teeth for support, our jawbones shrink. Over time, dentures do not fit as well as they used to. Adhesive powders and pastes are used to keep them steady, and by the end of the day, the adhesive you put on in the morning is giving out. This can lead to some pretty embarrassing moments at the dinner table or when you are out to have a good time with friends. More than one person has left for a trip only to find the next morning that the adhesive that keeps their dentures from falling out is on the bathroom counter back at home.
If you are a denture wearer, you can eliminate all these hassles with a revolutionary restorative dental treatments: All-on-4 dental implants.
