Restorative dentistry is an area of dentistry that aims at providing a dental patient with the fullest use of their teeth and gums. It can include everything from crowns to implants. Naturally, one of the most common forms of restorative dentistry is dentures, and at Martin Dentistry in Stockton, CA we always encourage patients in need of such treatment to recognize the many advantages of dentures.
Itemizing the Advantages of Dentures
As your chosen dentist in Stockton, we understand that your path to dentures may have been an unhappy one. You may find yourself in need of a dentures specialist because of disease, injury or other issues, and you may not be thrilled that you require dentures for several, or even all, of your teeth. The good news is that there are so many benefits to this option, and at the top of the list is that dentures support optimal health and well-being.
One of the chief advantages of dentures is that they offer a full replacement for lost teeth. With a pair of properly made and fitted dentures, you can speak, look, and eat just as you have always done. And, you can do so with confidence because modern dentures are so well-fitted and custom designed that slipping is a thing of the past.
Another of the advantages of dentures is that they are a perfect, long term solution. Whether it is partial or full dentures, you will not need to replace them often – perhaps every five to ten years. They will look just like your remaining natural teeth and will be incredibly easy to maintain.
While you will always need one or two exams and cleanings each year (even without natural teeth), dentures spare you lots of further visits or expenses. Gum tissue does tend to change over time, though, and so you will need to come in as soon as you detect any differences in the fit or comfort of your dentures.
