Dentures can make all the difference in the world for someone with missing teeth. They look better, they feel better and they are able to enjoy a variety of foods again.
But one thing no one enjoys is bad breath, or halitosis. And don’t think that just because you’re wearing dentures means that you’re immune to a foul order in your mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacterial growth, and dentures are just as susceptible to this as your natural teeth.

A fellow in Implantology at the California Implant Institute, Dr. Baldwin changes failing smiles so people look, feel and function more like their natural selves.

Patients with one or more missing teeth often decide to forego replacement due to time, money, fear of pain, and other valid concerns. However, the cost of skipping this treatment may just be your dental health. Missing teeth have numerous consequences including dental drift (the shifting of teeth to fill in gaps), lost bone density, and changing facial shapes due to diminished gum tissue volume. At Foundation Dental Solutions, our expert team offers a variety of tooth replacement options to meet any needs. We believe in offering patients the right solutions to their oral health problems, and we say so right in our name.

Throughout human history, man has been trying to create the perfect set of false teeth, or dentures. Long before the legendary story of President George Washington’s wooden teeth—which were actually made of a combination of hippopotamus ivory, human teeth and parts of donkey and horse teeth—people needed to replace missing teeth. Archaeological evidence points to ancient Egyptian, Mayan and Etruscans of Italy attempting to construct primitive dentures. Today fortunately, advances in technology and dental materials have made dentures more comfortable, natural-looking and durable. Dr. Douglas Baldwin and his team at Foundation Dental Solutions in Arlington, TX, offer a variety of denture solutions for people who have either complete or partial tooth loss.
