No one wants to have dentures, but sometimes they're necessary. Thankfully, your dentist in Penacook, NH, and serving Concord, NH, Dr. Jennifer Toy, offers dentures which normalize oral function and look great, too. She can tell you which denture options are right personal appearance and self-esteem.

The need for dentures

Tooth loss is a reality. The American College of Prosthodontists, a group of professionals expert in restoring smiles, says that 120 million Americans have lost at least one adult tooth to:

  • Decay
  • Accident
  • Gum disease
  • Systemic health issues such as diabetes or cancer

The results can be tragic as people cannot bite and chew properly, develop digestive problems, see rapid deterioration of the gums and jaw bone, and feel truly depressed and embarrassed about their personal appearance.

What dentures can do

Your Concord dentist understands both the physical and psychological effects of tooth loss. She and her team are ready to help.

When you come to Dr. Toy's office, she'll fully evaluate your smile, including remaining teeth, supporting structures and your overall health. Then, together, you'll choose the denture option right for your situation.

Dr. Toy offers:

  • Partial dentures which replace one or more missing teeth
  • Full conventional dentures, placed right away after extraction or after tissues have healed completely
  • Implant-supported dentures, secured by two, four, or six titanium implants surgically inserted into the jaw bone

Whatever your choice, expect a treatment plan tailored to your oral health needs and facial appearance. You'll undergo a comprehensive dental examination, X-rays and three-dimensional impressions created digitally for maximum accuracy, expediency and patient comfort. 123dentist says that your denture will match any remaining teeth perfectly in shape, color and size so you can be confident in the natural aesthetics of your smile.

When you receive your dental prosthetic, you'll be pleased with the fit and security. Conventional dentures stay in place with the natural suction provided by your soft oral tissues and the alveolar ridge of the jaw bone. Implant-supported dentures feature the tremendous benefit of strengthening the width, height and strength of the jaw bone.

Plus, Dr. Toy's denture patients enjoy full facial contours. While dentures cannot remove years from your appearance, they do create the best possible smile, allowing you to feel confident and more like yourself.

Finally, all dentures restore a wonderful measure of efficient biting and chewing. Dr. Toy ensures dentures are properly balanced, and as you use them, your muscles actually will learn the best way to eat.
