Dentures in Statesville

We’ve all seen a cartoon scene wherein an elderly person’s teeth fall into their food, or pop out when they laugh. While these depictions are fine for jokes on T.V., they lead to the common misconception that dentures can easily be displaced at any time. Luckily, though, real-life dentures are much more secure. As long as they are properly fitted, your dentures should never move or shift while you are talking, chewing, or laughing.

Dentures are a great way to start looking, feeling, and living your best. They don’t just restore your teeth; they can help improve almost every area of your life. Some common benefits of dentures include:

  • The ability to chew your favorite foods, especially healthy, crunchy foods like apples, peaches, and celery.
  • Improved digestive health and overall health, due to said access to healthier foods.
  • Increased confidence when communicating, and increased ability to be understood.
  • Increased confidence when smiling, laughing, eating, and speaking.

You can probably see the point we are trying to make. If you make the decision to get dentures, your entire life can change with just one phone call to our office!

Types of Dentures

Our Statesville cosmetic dentists can place two main types of dentures, complete dentures and partial dentures, as well as dental bridges.

  • Complete Dentures: Used to replace a full row of lost teeth.
  • Partial Dentures: Used for people who have lost several, but not all, teeth.

Bridges: If you have two healthy teeth on either side of a gap, your dentist may be able to insert a false tooth, called a pontic, that is held in place by the abutment teeth on either side of it. Click here to learn more about dental bridges.
