If you need teeth replaced, the first place to start is by doing research on replacement options. That’s smart, because it’s what all of us here at Owens Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in Pulaski, Tennessee, recommend doing. This will help you make a better decision for your long-term oral health.
One of the more popular options is to get dentures, installed by an experienced dentist. There’s a lot more than that to dentures, though.
Why get dentures?
It’s likely that Dr. Nathan Owens will recommend dentures if your gums or jaw bone aren’t healthy enough to support dental implants. A lot of older patients will see this, as well as those who have suffered from severe oral health problems. Implants are demanding on gums and bones.
Dentures don’t require quite the invasive implementation as implants. Instead of having titanium posts inserted into your gums, then covering those with crowns, a mold is simply made of your mouth. Dentures are then hand-made to fit your mouth exactly.You do have more care for dentures – cream, and cleaning at night, for example – but you’ll have to clean your implants, too.
You can make the best choice for your oral health and tooth replacement needs. Educating yourself on the different options available will help you make a great choice. If you need help, please call us today at 931-363-1388.
