Tooth loss may result from periodontal disease, tooth decay, or traumatic injury. It is very important to replace missing teeth. The ill effects of not doing so can be a shift in remaining teeth, an inability to bite and chew properly, as well as a sagging facial appearance, which makes one appear older than they are.

A denture is the replacement of all teeth on either the upper arch, lower arch, or both. A denture can replace lost bone and gum tissue contours, thereby supporting areas of the face or jawbone that may have a caved-in appearance. Dental implants are occasionally used as support for dentures when indicated.

Whether you are missing all or some of your teeth, there is a denture option that can work for you. If all of the teeth are either missing or have been badly damaged and require extraction, a full denture is typically the best option. Individuals who only have some missing or damaged teeth along the arch(es) to be treated can benefit from a partial denture or overdenture.

Unlike dentures of the past, customized dentures from Dr. Martin Gorman use high-quality materials, enabling them to have improved functionality. Additionally, they are designed to look and feel natural while fitting comfortably in the mouth, and can provide patients with a more youthful appearance and a revitalized smile.
