Why replace missing teeth?
Nature designed each component of your mouth to work with the others and with the rest of your body. Missing teeth allow their companions to drift out of position. That can cause bite problems, TMJ issues, headaches, and migraines.
Diet becomes limited for a person with few or no teeth. To feel good and perform efficiently, the body needs lean proteins, nutrients from fresh produce, and the fiber of whole grains. Eating only soft foods or not chewing properly can lead to digestive and systemic health problems.
Dental condition also plays a big role in how you see yourself and how you interact with others. Teeth and bone provide structure for lips and skin. When teeth are lost, jawbone bone thins. That allows the lower portion of the face to collapse. Distance from nose to chin diminishes, features become distorted, lips roll inward, and skin sags. You see it when you look in the mirror, and other people cannot help noticing the change. In addition, missing teeth make it difficult to speak clearly.
Many options in dentures at Plano, TX practice
Dentures are a sound, time-tested solution for missing teeth. Dr. Kolli provides denture services to suit a variety of needs:
- Partial dentures – This type of prosthetic clips onto existing teeth for stability, holding artificial teeth in place. It is removable for easy cleaning.
- Full and complete dentures – An entire arch of teeth is replaced on a framework that resembles gum tissue. Complete dentures are an upper and lower arch designed to fit together for optimal function.
- Implant-retained dentures – Dental implants are tiny screws that become fused with the jawbone. As few as four dental implants can be placed for an incredibly secure full denture. Implant-supported dentures also help to preserve attractive facial bone.
- Denture repair – Just like natural teeth, dentures are subjected to a lot of wear and tear, so occasionally something goes wrong. Dr. Kolli can usually make repairs on site, to get you smiling again quickly.
