Patients with one or more missing teeth often decide to forego replacement due to time, money, fear of pain, and other valid concerns.

If you wear dentures you probably already know the litany of issues associated with them. They move in the mouth, make it difficult to chew, cause impeded speech, and just don’t always look great. There are a few other concerns associated with dentures that you may not be as familiar with. The pressure traditional dentures place on gum tissue causes it to recede and change shape.

This pressure and the lack of stimulation from tooth roots also leads to loss of bone density changing the shape of your face, and again requiring reshaping and replacing of dentures.
