Dentures for patients of Sedona, Cottonwood and Camp Verde
Sedona and Cottonwood Dentures
It is no secret that as we get older, our teeth lose some of their strength and durability. This can lead to many patients losing some of their teeth as they age. When you begin losing your teeth, it is best to get a dental consultation at Adobe Dental Design of Sedona, where Dr. Jonathan Held will sit down with you and discuss your options. In most cases, dentures are the best solution when multiple teeth are missing, but every scenario is different and will require different methods of treatment.
Depending on the patient’s situation, partial or full dentures may be needed. If many teeth are damaged beyond repair or are completely missing, Dr. Jonathan Held- a dentist at Adobe Dental Design of Sedona may choose to extract the remaining teeth and prepare the mouth for full dentures. If only a few teeth are missing, dental implants and crowns may be placed or partials could be made.
If a full set is needed, the remaining teeth may be extracted and replaced with dental implants. These implants will help provide stability and promote bone growth. If the teeth are not replaced by dental implants, the patient’s jaw bone could begin to deteriorate. By placing dental implants in place of the missing tooth, the jaw bone is stimulated thereby promoting bone growth. Balls and sockets are placed on the tops of the dental implants and the corresponding location on the underside of the denture to provide the patient with a more secure fit. If partial dentures are needed rather than a full set of dentures, your Sedona dentist may decide not to place dental implants.
BENEFITS OF DENTURES
Restored Functionality- When dentures are needed to replace missing or fractured teeth, they often restore the mouth to its original functionality. In fact, it is not uncommon for patients to have their speaking ability restored as well.
Improved Smile- One of the give away signs of old age is the classic gum look, but dentures can make it so no one can tell you’re missing teeth. Because they are made of material that looks and feels like real teeth, your smile will be restored to its natural glory.
