Dentures In Lenoir City

If you’re missing any teeth, it’s important to have them replaced to prevent a host of oral health and aesthetic problems. Empty sockets will lead to bone loss, shifting teeth, and changes in the jaw and facial structure. 
These problems can also lead to crooked teeth and overcrowding. If you’re interested in dentures for tooth replacement, contact us at Lakeside Dental today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Joseph Blalock.

Benefits of Dentures

Dentures are a faster cheaper alternative to dental implants and look very natural. Dentures are an excellent alternative for patients who do not qualify as candidates for dental implants due to inadequate bone density or structure.

They help restore the appearance, function, and structure of the teeth and mouth. When you have missing teeth, speaking clearly and chewing become more difficult, the teeth will shift, and you will suffer from bone loss. 

Wearing dentures assists with mastication, speech, and prevents shifting teeth. They also reduce the rate of bone loss and prevent facial sagging and other changes to the facial structure. Dentures are easy to clean because they are removable and modern dentures will not impact your diet significantly. 

Dentures are specially molded and hand-crafted to fit inside your mouth and along your jaw perfectly. Over time, if changes to your jaw occur, they can be altered. Most importantly, wearing dentures greatly reduces your risk of serious oral health problems that can occur when you don’t replace missing teeth, such as a higher risk for gum disease and future tooth loss.
