Age, disease, injury, and decades of daily wear can contribute to tooth loss. By age 74, more than a quarter of people lose all of their teeth. Nearly seventy percent of those age 34 to 44 have lost one or more teeth. While this information may seem gloom and doom, there's no cause for alarm, because Dr. Schwartz can restore your solid smile with full or partial dentures. You have the freedom to enjoy life without worrying about hiding your smile. Dentures will allow you to resume a good, wholesome diet, and a full set of teeth may also improve your speech.
Full dentures replace all teeth on the upper or lower arch. Dentures look natural and restore oral function. Dr. Schwartz will design dentures that fit comfortably on your gums. Traditionally, dentures are secured with adhesive, but you may opt for a more solid solution - anchoring your denture to dental implants.
But what if you still have some healthy teeth remaining? Dr. Schwartz offers partial dentures that can complete your smile and give your mouth strength and stability. Partials are attached to discreet metal claps, and they can replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike a bridge, a partial does not require altering existing tooth structure. Partial dentures can fill in the empty spaces left by missing teeth (not necessarily in a row) to complete your smile.
