When you lose a tooth, it can have a profound effect on your self-esteem, especially if it’s a front tooth. Fortunately, if you live in San Jose, California, you have options for tooth replacement provided by Dr. Provenzano and Dr. Ram at Natalie K. Provenzano DDS, Inc.
When you’re missing one or more teeth, your smile is affected. Some people begin to feel self-conscious and even start avoiding social interactions. This can even affect your personal relationships.
However, there are also some compelling health reasons for replacing your missing teeth:
Thanks to advances in dentistry, there are several options for replacing missing teeth.
The most well-known type of dentures is the full set of traditional dentures made from acrylic, which replaces all of your teeth. To hold them in place, you may need to use a dental adhesive.
In most cases, full dentures are the most affordable option to replace missing teeth.
To replace one or more teeth in the dental arch, you can consider partial dentures made of a metal framework. These dentures snap into place using clasps and your remaining natural teeth.
Partial dentures are easy to remove. This allows you to practice good oral hygiene. Best of all, a portion of partial dentures cost is covered by many dental insurance plans.
For maximum stabilization and functionality, you may be interested in implant-retained dentures. This type of denture is held in place with implanted metal screws.
