Dentures, Partials, and Extractions
Tooth loss is one of the biggest problems encountered in the field of dentistry. While there are now a number of options to choose from to address the problem, one solution remains constant and proven: dentures. These dental appliances are the most widely used for the replacement of missing tooth structures. This is true whether you are missing several teeth or have none remaining. In cases where you are missing several tooth structures but not all, then only a partial denture is used.
The cause of tooth loss varies on a case-to-case basis. For some, it results from periodontal disease or tooth decay, while others may experience traumatic injuries leading to the loss. Regardless of the reason, it is important to replace the missing structures, as failing to do so can lead to more dental problems. The negative effects of non-replacement may include a shift in remaining teeth, which can also lead to difficulty chewing and biting properly. Moreover, failure to replace missing teeth can also lead to sagging facial appearance, making you look much older than you actually are.
There is a common misconception that dentures are dated and ineffective; this cannot be any further from the truth. The production of these dental appliances has come a long way, and its design now has comfort and functionality in mind. Dentures are similar in appearance to natural teeth and can be just as functional if produced properly. We are proud to offer high quality in a wide variety of dentures in Charleston, SC.
