Do you suffer from advanced tooth loss? A staggering number of Americans are missing most, if not all, of their teeth. In fact, according to the American Association or Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, over 26% of adults have lost all of their natural teeth. In order to return smiles to full function and beauty, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, offer restorative options using natural looking dentures. What Happens When I Lose My Teeth? Tooth loss hinders both the health and appearance of your smile. Even a single lost tooth can cause misalignment, increasing the risk of serious dental problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Over time, advanced tooth loss may cause a person to subsist on a diet of purely soft foods, reducing nutritional intake and hurting overall health. Finally, tooth loss makes speaking difficult and affects your ability to communicate. If you suffer from tooth loss, schedule an appointment with yourLivingston dentists today. Dr. David or Gary Silverstrom will examine your smile and recommend the best restorative option for replacing your missing teeth. Full and Partial Dentures Using lifelike dental materials, your Livingston dentists can place a full set of dentures. We also offer partial dentures. Partials consist of replacement teeth with metal clasps on each end. The clasps are attached to the natural teeth on either side of the gap in your smile, anchoring your dentures in place. With dentures, you can eat, smile, and speak with confidence and ease. Implant Dentures In addition to removable dentures, Drs. David and Gary Silverstrom also offer fixed implant dentures. A set of dental implant posts will be inserted directly into the jawbone. Using an impression of your smile, a set of dentures will be created. The prosthetics will be attached to the implant posts, providing dentures that don’t slip when eating or speaking.
