Permanent dentures are affixed to dental implants to remain in the mouth.
Tooth loss can create a number of concerns within your mouth. When you’ve lost one or multiple teeth, you may struggle to chew food or perform other functional tasks. Additionally, tooth loss can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, which means you may not smile as much or feel good about yourself when you look in the mirror. However, many people suffer from this common dental problem. Tooth loss can happen when you experience an injury that causes significant damage or when you have gum disease that destroys the tooth.
You don’t have to deal with the loss of your teeth on your own. At the office of Paul D. Nifong, Jr., DDS, we offer a wide range of dental treatments and solutions for this issue. We work with patients located in and near Clemmons, North Carolina to provide customized plans that address tooth loss, including the placement of permanent dentures. Dentures are false teeth that fill in gaps and unify the appearance of an individual’s smile. When you think of dentures, you may think of the false teeth that people put in and take out. However, permanent dentures are affixed to dental implants to remain in the mouth unless removed by a dentist.
Placing permanent dentures can improve both the functionality of your teeth and your appearance, restoring your self-confidence and allowing you to chew normally. If you’d like to find out whether permanent dentures are an option for your dental condition, contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nifong.
