Toluca lake dentist arthur weiss's senior's guide to dentures

  1. 1. Seniors Guide to Dentures by Toluca Lake dentist Arthur WeissIf, for whatever reason, you lose your tooth/teeth, the surrounding teethmay start to change their position and lean towards the gaps. This may wellaffect the tissue surrounding your remaining teeth, and could eventuallycause tooth decay and gum disease. Your dentist will usually recommendfilling these caps with partial dentures which can be attached to yournatural teeth with either metals claps or precision attachments. Thisprocedure is less invasive than having permanent dentures fitted andnormally does not require any further dental visits.Although partial dentures work extremely well, some people opt to havedenture implants to replace their missing teeth. A dental implant is a metalrod which is placed into the jawbone onto which false tooth/teeth can beattached. These rods are normally made of titanium and over time the jawbone will fuse with the rod making it an ideal platform for crowns or bridges.This procedure involves minor operations and the recipient must be in goodhealth for the implant to be successful. A dental implant can help to slowdown the shrinkage of the jawbone which occurs when you lose your naturalteeth, and because an implant anchors teeth securely there’s less chance ofdentures moving around.A patient may experience some discomfort after surgery, but this cannormally be treated with over the counter pain killers and will only last for ashort period of time.Implant dentures are more costly than partial dentures, and the costs canvary depending upon where you live, and from one dental practice toanother. Dental implants do require surgery and therefore the cost ofanesthetic and after care must be taken into account. If you have dentalinsurance this will most likely cover a large proportion of the cost. On theother hand your dentist may be able to offer you a payment plan. Certainlyit’s worth shopping around to find the best deal available. Low costdentures are available in some areas, but be sure you investigate themthoroughly before making a decision.
  2. 2. Care of your teeth will make any dental procedure easier and the outcomesuccessful. Oral hygiene helps to counteract bacteria which in turn will meanyour teeth and gums remain healthy.Everyone likes to look good, and let’s face it a toothless smile does nothingfor the ego! Losing teeth is not always avoidable, but replacing them witheither partial dentures or denture implants will help to maintain the generalwellbeing of your teeth and gums.
