• Am I a Candidate for Dentures?

In just a few years, denture technology has improved by leaps and bounds. Whereas in the old days, dentures were unattractive, uncomfortable, and almost always had an unpleasant odor, today’s dentures are perfectly fitted, very comfortable, and can be easily cleaned to look and smell beautiful and clean. If you are not able to get dental implants for any reason, you may be a great candidate for dentures, and you may want to consider your options.

Why Choose Dentures?

If you are missing only one tooth, you might think that you either need to get a dental implant or a bridge to replace it. However, there are many reasons that you may not be able to get a dental implant right away. You may have gum disease to take care of first, you may not have enough bone mass in your jaw to support an implant, or dental implants may simply be too expensive for you at this time.

At the same time, getting a bridge requires your dentist in Leesburg to shave down the teeth adjacent to your missing tooth, as well. If these teeth are otherwise healthy, you may be hesitant to do this. In this case, you are likely a candidate for dentures. Instead of a full set of dentures, though, you will only get a partial denture to replace a single tooth. Then, in a few months or years, you may want to consider a dental implant.

If you are missing multiple teeth and you do not have enough material in your jawbone to support implants, you will likely also be a candidate for dentures. Rest assured, though, that when you have your dentures fitted, they will look and function just like natural teeth, and you will be able to eat your favorite foods again without pain.
