Dentures and Bridgework
Regardless of your age, dentures can help you preserve the beauty of your smile in spite of missing teeth.
Besides aesthetic benefits like preventing your face from sagging due to missing teeth, dentures can also make it easier for you to chew and speak.
Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is crucial because nearby teeth may shift to occupy the empty space left behind.
This can place extra stress on your teeth and jaws and make it more difficult for you to clean the shifted teeth, which can lead to tooth decay.
In order to help you avoid these problems, ALF Family Dentistry offers fittings for both full and partial dentures for patients of all ages.
Partial dentures (also known as bridges) are intended to replace several missing teeth in a row. They are attached to the remaining gumline. If you are missing several but not all teeth along a dental arch, a partial denture is often the appropriate solution. However, if you are missing all or almost all of the teeth along a dental arch, full dentures are likely more appropriate.
If you are considering dentures, Dr. Orlandini will examine you and determine which kind type would be right for your specific situation to best help you preserve your smile.
