Best Dentures in Mesa AZ
When teeth are lost they can have a negative impact on the appearance of a patent’s smile, but they are also detrimental to his or her oral health. When they are not replaced, the other teeth begin shifting into the void. This can result in crooked teeth, a misaligned bite, loose teeth, and difficulty eating or speaking clearly. Replacing the tooth or teeth will prevent these problems. Dental implants are commonly used to replace a missing tooth, but they are not an option when bone loss is present. When a patient is missing several teeth, or an entire arch, a partial or complete denture can replace the missing teeth and restore aesthetics and functionality.
When a patient is missing some, but not all, of the teeth in one arch, a partial denture can prevent the remaining teeth from shifting, preserving the patient’s oral health, and restoring the aesthetics of his or her smile. They are secured by clasps that attach to the existing teeth.
These are used to replace all of the teeth in an arch. Complete dentures can restore a patient’s ability to chew, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. The dentures fit over the gum tissue, and they are held in place by suction or denture adhesive.
Patients who are looking for a more stable solution for their dentures are often interested in implant supported dentures. Dr. Fritz will place small titanium screws in the jawbone during a gentle surgery. Once the bone heals, he will attach special abutments with ball heads to the implants. The dentures will have snaps that correspond and will fit over the abutments, creating a very stable restoration. New Health Dental wants all of their patients to have beautiful, healthy smiles that they are confident sharing with the world. If you need complete or partial dentures, call and schedule your appointment. Dr. Fritz takes the extra steps necessary to ensure that his patient’s dentures fit properly and that they are happy with them.
