Tooth loss can occur for many reasons including periodontal disease, decay or trauma. A conservative replacement option, dentures have been used to replace missing teeth for many years.
Lawson, MO dentist Dr. Nelson Kanning offers several types of dentures including cosmetic dentures and “All on Four”, an implant denture solution. Dentures are typically removable replacements for your teeth, designed to look and function like your own natural teeth and surrounding gum tissues. Modern-day dentures can look very realistic and feel comfortable.
Benefits of Implant Supported Dentures
Implant secured dentures promote improved health and quality of life compared to traditional removable dentures. While there is a greater investment for dental implant supported dentures, they ultimately provide superior long term benefits over removable dentures.
- Secure fit, better retention
- Ability to eat foods without restrictions
- Maintains bone structure in the jaw
- Ability to speak normally
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Replacing missing teeth is important for both dental health and overall health and well being: your ability to speak clearly, eat a varied diet and enjoy a high quality of life is greatly influenced by oral health. In addition, missing teeth can lead to more complex problems including shrinkage of the jawbone and a more aged appearance.
Dr. Kanning will work with you to find the most suitable option for restoring a functional smile that will not only improve overall health, but boost your sense of confidence!
