Dentures in Phoenix, AZ
Most people associate dentures with elderly patients. However, at We Care Dental, we understand that patients of any age can suffer significant tooth loss. This occurs primarily due to severe tooth decay and/or periodontal disease or trauma and/or injury to the mouth. No matter the reason for a patient losing all or nearly all of their teeth, our dentists near you can restore their oral health and wellness and improve their quality of life with dentures. At We Care Dental, we are dedicated to serving patients from all across the Phoenix area.
Significant Tooth Loss and Quality of Life
Significant tooth loss can drastically alter a patient’s quality of life. With few to no teeth, patients struggle with proper eating and chewing habits, which can create nutritional deficiencies. In addition, many people with extensive tooth loss feel self-conscious in their interpersonal relationships. This can reduce confidence in how a patient smiles or speaks.
Dentures to Restore Quality of Life
Some people suffer significant tooth loss but still have one or more teeth left intact in their mouth. In this case, to preserve the remaining teeth if they are healthy, our dental care team recommends partials. Partials are a set of dentures that accommodate one or more of the natural teeth left in a patient’s mouth. If a patient has suffered total tooth loss, either in the upper or lower jaw or both, our team recommends full dentures. Full dentures feature a full set of upper or lower teeth, designed to replace complete tooth loss in a patient’s mouth.
Dentures can be life-changing in terms of improving a patient’s quality of life. They restore the ability to eat, chew, and speak properly. In addition, they restore a look of oral health to patients by allowing them to smile confidently with a set of replacement teeth that look natural.
