As we age, the chances of losing our permanent teeth increase. According to research, 69% of adults over the age of 35 have lost at least one tooth. By age 74, over 26% of American adults have lost all of their natural teeth. In addition to feeling self-conscious, losing teeth affects out ability to eat and communicate clearly. Thankfully, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, offer state-of-the-art dentures to restore your smile. In today’s blog, your Livingston cosmetic dentists answer frequently asked questions about the benefits of dentures.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures
Question: Do dentures look natural?
Answer: Yes, at The Silverstrom Group, we strive to provide restorations that blend seamlessly with a patient’s features. We use dental porcelain to craft your replacement teeth. Porcelain reflects light in a similar manner as natural tooth enamel, so your dentures will look and function like the real thing.
Question: Will my dentures be custom-made?
Answer: Dentures are definitely not a “one size fits all” product. In order to avoid embarrassing slippage when speaking or talking and to ease general discomfort, we take impressions of your mouth and use computer technology to design your dentures. We want all of our patients to receive snug and comfortable dentures.
Question: Can I receive permanent dentures?
Answer: Yes. With dental implants, your Livingston dentists can secure a permanent set of full or partial dentures. Implants are biocompatible titanium post placed into the socket of a missing tooth. The implants are topped with an abutment that holds your new crown in place. Dental implants are non-removable and require the same care your could give your natural teeth.
