How Properly Fitting Dentures Protect Your Oral Health

Various Dentures | Dentures in Lake Worth FL

When you make an investment, it is nice to have a guarantee that your purchase will pay off. The same is true for dentistry and one of the most common ways to replace teeth – dentures. If you spend money on your new dentures and grow accustomed to eating the foods you love, you might wonder how long you can expect them to last.

Dentures last a long time, but not forever. Some people can have the same set of dentures for 5-8 years, which is what we hope for when designing your smile. Some factors can affect denture fit and may decrease their usefulness over time.

Dental Implants Lake Worth FL

Advertisements and information about dental implants are popping up on local television and radio shows regularly these days, but if you already have dentures, you may overlook them as something that is not an option for you.

Dental Bridges Bridge the Gap in Your Smile

Dental Bridges Lake Worth FL

Losing natural teeth can leave you feeling like your smile is not as attractive as it used to be, but did you know that your remaining teeth may shift and create additional dental conditions?

Periodontal disease – Shifting teeth may expose roots, which can feel sensitive when brushing or when exposed to cold drinks or foods. Additionally, the bone that once supported your tooth may diminish because the tooth’s root is no longer present to stimulate healthy bone. ...

What Benefits Do Dental Implants Offer?

Dental Implants Lake Worth FL

Missing teeth pose a big problem for many people. Up until a few decades ago, we replaced missing teeth with either a dental bridge or a partial denture. While these two options filled the gap left behind by a missing tooth, neither one of them could stop the physical repercussions of a missing tooth.

Bone Loss, Called Resorption

The teeth and jawbone have a mutually beneficial relationship. The jawbone secures the root of the tooth in place while the tooth’s root stimulates bone stability.
