Consequences of Missing Teeth
When you have lost one or more teeth you may begin to see serious negative effects. These effects go far beyond your mouth to include your whole body health. The effects of missing teeth include:
- Shifting of other teeth
- Stress on other teeth
- Difficulty chewing and eating
- Difficulty speaking
- Changes in facial appearance
Dentures can address these issues to maintain your youthful appearance, your overall health, and your self-confidence.
All our dentures and partials are previewed for your approval before completion, and all follow up visits for adjustments and repairs are free for the first 18 months.
At Napa Valley Dental Care, Dentures come in three major types. They can be either partial or full, and either traditional or implant-supported with either conventional implants or lows cost mini implants.
Partial Dentures replace one or more teeth, but less than an entire arch. Partial dentures may be secured by clasps that anchor the partial to adjacent teeth or attached to implants.
Full dentures replace an entire set of teeth, such as all your upper teeth or all your lower teeth. They are personalized replacement teeth that enhance your smile, your bite, and even your facial contours. Traditionally upper full dentures are largely secured by the suction created between the denture and the roof of the mouth. Lower Full Dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by their fit over the gums and jawbone.
