Dentist in Wichita, KS explains the benefits of Dentures

When natural teeth are missing from the smile, it is important for patients in Wichita, KS to consider restorative services for both cosmetic and functional reasons. One or more teeth lost from the dental arch can have a devastating effect on the smile. It can cause patients to feel extremely self-conscious or embarrassed, and can reduce chewing, biting, and speaking efficiency. It can also be the cause of shifting teeth, which may require orthodontics to correct. Instead, patients who are dealing with lost teeth are encouraged to visit East Wichita Dentist as soon as possible to learn about restorative options, which may include full or partial dentures.

Dentures are removable restorations that can replace one or more teeth. Partial dentures look like orthodontic retainers, but hold one or more replacement teeth, which slide into place when the denture is worn. Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of teeth, or both dental arches.

While there are alternative solutions, dental implants and bridges, dentures have their benefits. Full dentures allow patients to replace the entire arch of teeth in a fast and affordable manner. Dental implants and bridges to do the same can cost more and require surgical procedures and extensive healing time to complete. Instead, dentures can be made quickly and affordably to replace many teeth. Partial dentures and full dentures are removable, making them easy to clean and care for. Patients who are on a tight budget can use dentures until they make a decision on a more permanent option if so desired.

At East Wichita Dentist, we believe everyone has the right to a beautiful, healthy smile. When trauma, disease, or infection occurs and results in the loss or extraction of teeth, it is important that patients take care of the cosmetic issue as well as improve the functionality of their smile as soon as possible. An examination and consultation is the best way for patients to determine the most appropriate solution for their specific situation.

    Such an amazing dental office! The staff is so nice and welcoming. I felt right at home. They used sedation dentistry on me and it took all the fear from me and it didn't even hurt. I have never met a dental office that is so easy to talk to! Love them
