A Reliable Solution for Missing Teeth
If you have missing teeth, your jawbone gradually degrades and the empty spaces can cause significant changes to the structure of your mouth and jaw. Eating the foods you once enjoyed can be a struggle, it’s too embarrassing to smile, and your self-confidence has taken a hit. Tooth loss can also lead to increased sensitivity, decay, and chips in your remaining teeth because they’re taking on an added burden. If you’re missing several or all your teeth, Dr. Avi Matha provides several types of dentures in Woodbury, MN to help restore your dental function and appearance! As with any dental solution, there are pros and cons to wearing dentures. At your first consultation, Dr. Matha will discuss your lifestyle and goals, including the functionality of your smile to determine if dentures are the best option for you.

Understanding Denture Limitations
The biggest challenge with traditional dentures is that they may not feel like natural teeth. Although functional, you have to take care of them as a separate appliance. Other cosmetic dentistry procedures make it easy to forget you ever lost a tooth. While modern techniques have made dentures more secure and comfortable, they can fall out, click, or slip, especially when eating or speaking. If you’re a denture wearer, you need to remove and clean them every night and soak them overnight. Before placed them back in your mouth, it’s important to brush your gums, tongue, and the roof of your mouth with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste and use an antiseptic mouthwash to kill any lingering bacteria.
