Dentures are an affordable way to replace multiple unhealthy or failing teeth, or missing teeth, without dental surgery. McCormack Dental Group, led by Bradley McCormack, DDS, offers patients dentures at each of its locations in North Royalton, North Ridgeville, and Columbus, Ohio. For more information, call your local office today, or make an appointment online with the scheduling tool.
Dentures are dental prosthetics that replace missing or failing teeth in the upper or lower jawline. After a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums, your dentist at McCormack Dental Group will help you decide the best method to improve the functionality of your teeth.
Sometimes, some of your teeth may be healthy enough to remain in your mouth, but some need extraction and replacement. In these cases, McCormack Dental Group recommends partial dentures to sit alongside your healthy teeth. In other cases, all your teeth may need removal, in which case your dentist creates a full denture.
While partial or full dentures can sometimes take some time to get used to, once you adjust, you will be able to eat and speak more easily than you can with missing or decaying teeth. Dentures can also help restore the shape of your face after losing your teeth causes facial skin to sag, and they closely resemble your natural teeth.
Once you have dentures, you can visit McCormack Dental Group to maintain or repair them as necessary. McCormack Dental Group offers digitally designed dentures, which can be made and repaired much more quickly than traditional dentures. You can often have repairs performed in a matter of days, as opposed to weeks with other providers.
While dental implants have become more popular in recent years, dentures are often the best option for people who don’t want to undergo extensive dental surgery, especially when replacing multiple teeth. Dentures are also more affordable than dental implants.
If you’re unsure what kind of treatment is right for your missing teeth, schedule a visit with a dentist at McCormack Dental Group to discuss your options.
Many people put off getting dentures because they worry about how they will look without teeth after having their natural teeth extracted. It may take several weeks after tooth removal and healing for complete dentures placement. This can make people self-conscious, especially if their front teeth, or all of their teeth, were extracted.
McCormack Dental Group can provide you with immediate dentures to wear as soon as your dentist removes your original teeth, without the wait time associated with complete dentures. Your dentist creates immediate dentures before extracting your teeth, and you return for follow-up visits to adjust them as needed. You may require a new denture after your mouth completely heals from the extractions or a reline, but your dentist fully explains the process before you decide to get immediate dentures.
