In your twenties, you had your two of your teeth knocked out in a bike accident. The teeth were broken, and there was no way to replant them. Implants were cost prohibitive and your dental insurance wouldn’t have paid for them anyway. So you got a partial denture to replace those teeth, because it was the fastest thing to do.
After twenty years, you’re still wearing a partial denture, though a newer one. You’ve been through adjustments and cleanings and all your semi-annual exams, but you just feel ready to try something new that looks more natural.
Making Your Partial Fit and Look Right
In the north Atlanta area, your best bet is to come see Dr. Anderson or Dr. Berne at Georgia Denture and Implant Specialists. Not only can we make sure your partial denture is still fitting correctly, or make any adjustments, but we can also offer some options for you going forward. For instance, if your partial denture has a visible metal wire, there are more natural looking solutions to keep them in place.
Ready For A Change?
After two decades, you may be ready to move to the next, more permanent step of prosthodontics: dental implants. Implants are more stable and easier to care for than your dentures. No more removing your teeth or slurred speech. Implants can stimulate and regenerate bone growth in your jaw in a way that dentures or bridges cannot. It makes for a healthier mouth: one more resistant to gum disease and decay, one where the teeth are straighter and more perfectly aligned.
