It is not only elderly or middle-aged people who lose teeth. If you have already lost teeth at the age of 30, you know that tooth loss can occur for a number of different reasons. Sometimes poor oral hygiene is the cause, but for many people genetics or other uncontrollable factors such as an accident or sports injury are to blame. Whatever the cause of your tooth loss may be, when you visit Eastland Dental Center in Bloomington, IL you will not have to feel uneasy about getting dentures whether you are 30 or 80. We will make sure that we save as many of your natural teeth as possible and that you are fitted with customized, comfortable dentures.
Getting dentures today doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to live with a toothless smile that you can only temporarily place generic dentures over. If possible, your dentist will likely keep any healthy teeth in your smile and use these teeth to naturally stabilize a partial denture, or even place a transitional denture if you are considering getting dental implants later. When you have unavoidably lost all the teeth in your dental arch, we can fit you with a full denture that suits your needs.
Though partial and full dentures are your two basic options, you have several types of each of these dentures to choose from. For example, if you are in need of full dentures, you can receive traditional removable dentures that are custom-made to fit comfortably in your mouth. The traditional dentures we can create for you are made of the highest quality materials and can look natural and fit snugly. Alternatively, you may choose to have permanent dentures placed instead. Permanent dentures are supported by implants for increased stability and better health for your jaw and gums.
No matter how old or young you are, tooth loss can be devastating. At Eastland Dental Center, we understand how important it is to restore your smile to its optimal beauty and function. We offer the highest quality dentures available so that you can love your smile again. Visit our office for a consultation this week.
