Dentures / Plates
If you have lost a single tooth or a few teeth or all your teeth, it is important to replace the missing tooth/teeth for several reasons. Teeth can drift and tilt into the space which leads to detrimental changes in the way your teeth meet together when you bite down. This can cause your existing teeth and gums to breakdown and also cause pain in the jaw joint. Although this happens over a period of time, it is something which is hard to reverse and can lead to more loss of teeth.
Removable full dentures and partial dentures, apart from improving your smile cosmetically, can restore function and also help to prevent future problems.
