Missing some or all of your teeth can lead you to have a poor self-image or make in-person interactions harder. Speaking and eating denturesmay become difficult and you may even notice some side effects from your missing teeth. Luckily, you can take your smile back and renew your confidence with dentures. Learn more about what dentures can do for you with Dentistry at Camp Creek in South Atlanta, GA.

What are dentures? 
Dentures replace your missing teeth to complete your smile and make eating, chewing and speaking less difficult and more natural. Usually made from mixed materials like porcelain and acrylic or coated metal, dentures fit onto the arch of the mouth and use gravity or suction to stay in place. A denture can also permanently attach to dental implants.

Can dentures help my smile? 
Dentures can probably help your smile if you are missing most or all of your teeth. A dental implant or dental bridge are usually suggested for replacing one or several teeth. Not only do dentures fill out your smile to close its gaps, they also fill out your facial muscles and skin, keeping you from prematurely aging or sagging. Dentures also allow you to eat normal foods and chew and swallow normally. Untreated missing teeth can mean a lack of nutrition due to eating only soft foods instead of healthier options.

Dentures in South Atlanta, GA
The most recognizable denture is a full denture, with a full row of teeth on the arch. This denture works best for those missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch. Patients can wear another denture on the opposite arch to replace all of the teeth in the mouth. This is known as wearing a “set” of dentures. However, dentures can also incorporate remaining healthy teeth into their design, fitting over the teeth to keep them healthy and help the denture stay in place. Finally, implant-supported dentures are removable or permanent and attach to surgically-placed dental implants.
