Dr. Nash can determine the best type of dentures or other solution to help you smile, chew, and speak with absolute confidence.
Missing teeth can interfere with many aspects of daily life, from speaking and eating to feeling confident about smiling in public. Furthermore, those with many missing teeth commonly suffer from other health issues, because oral and overall health are closely linked. If you are missing all of your teeth on the top or bottom jaw, or you have only a few teeth remaining, you may be a good candidate for complete dentures. Patients who have lost many teeth on the top or bottom arch, but still have a good number of healthy teeth, are often candidates for partial dentures.
If you desire a solution that provides virtually the same level of function as you once enjoyed with your natural teeth and are willing to invest in a more extensive treatment, dentures supported by dental implants can meet and exceed your goals. The primary candidacy factor is the amount of healthy bone tissue in your jaw. If you delay addressing lost teeth, you can experience some loss of bone tissue, compromising the ability of the jaw to support implants. Bone grafting can restore lost tissue, allowing you to safely undergo the procedure.
