There are a lot of reasons for permanent tooth loss, from damage or disease to natural tooth loss and more. Whatever the cause, lost teeth require replacement, not just because you want to look your best but because you need to chew and talk normally.
Dentistry on Kent provides services for both full and partial dentures. A full denture replaces an entire set of teeth, while a partial denture fits into your mouth to replace a group of lost teeth.
Dentures are custom-made for your mouth from precise molds taken in the dentist’s office and constructed from metal, acrylic, and plastic. The bottom denture fits over your gums to leave room for your tongue, while the upper plate fits over your gums and the roof of your mouth. Partial dentures are constructed in the same fashion, except the plate attaches to the remaining teeth on either side of the gap.
The term “dentures” might make some patients nervous as they think about the ill-fitting and obvious dentures of years past. However, advancements in dental technology mean that modern dentures are better than ever. The custom molds ensure an excellent and secure fit, giving you a natural and secure feeling.
If you are in need of either a full or partial denture, trust Dentistry on Kent to provide you with the best in tooth replacement services.
