A Partial Denture Can Replicate the Basic Function of Your Missing Teeth

Without professional intervention from a dentist, untreated tooth decay can eventually lead to multiple cases of tooth loss. Even if you don’t experience any additional oral health complications the void in your mouth can severely impair your ability to chew food. Some patients who have lost multiple teeth also experience problems with the clarity of their speech and the general appearance of their smile.

If you have lost multiple teeth in one part of your mouth a dentist like Dr. Amandeep Gill might recommend extracting whatever remains of the roots before suturing your gums. Once your gums have fully healed and any periodontal infection concerns have passed, she might recommend fitting you for a partial denture.

It is a special type of removable oral appliance which acts as an abbreviated version of a complete denture. The corresponding artificial teeth will be securely bonded into a pink medium that matches the general appearance of your natural gum tissues.

Some partial dentures include small hardware components to them connect seamlessly with the surrounding natural teeth. While the partial denture will fit firmly in place on its own, you might still want to apply a small bead of denture adhesive before inserting it into your mouth.

This full picture concept allows us to essentially redo your smile using a wide range of treatment options to help you create the smile of your dreams and successfully change your outlook on life.

Do you currently suffer from misshapen, gapped, or missing teeth? Or broken, worn, crooked, damaged or decayed teeth? Well, we can help! Our smile makeover is personalized for your needs by combining several treatments for your smile issues. This might include dental bonding, bridges, crowns, fillings, implants or veneers. It can also involve complete or partial dentures or teeth whitening.

We have seen that a smile makeover isn’t just about your smile, it’s also about your health and well-being. As you are once again able to smile with confidence, your self-esteem improves. This happens because of a very real phenomenon as the brain releases neuropeptides when you smile. These neuropeptides enable communication within the neurons, and this allows messages to be sent throughout your body. This reduces stress levels by releasing the feel-good hormones in the body, you know them as dopamine, endorphins, and serotonin. The result is lowered blood pressure and heart rate, all thanks to the simple act of smiling and feeling good about yourself.

Have You Considered a Dental Implant for Your Missing Tooth?

If you currently have a missing tooth (or teeth) which makes you self-conscious when you smile, we are happy to help! Dr. Amandeep S Gill and our team at Gill Family Dentistry understand how a missing tooth in your smile can affect your self-confidence and make you reluctant to smile.

Fortunately for our patients in Modesto, California, we offer dental implants to restore a missing tooth (or teeth). Dental implants can be used to replace all of your teeth, several teeth or even just one, depending on your needs.

To restore your smile, dental implants are securely planted in the jawbone. To do this, our dentist installs a biocompatible titanium screw into your jawbone where the missing tooth was located. This titanium screw acts as the tooth root by holding your implant in place securely. While the site heals after surgery, the jawbone fuses to the titanium screw.

Once the site is healed and the implant secured, our dentist attaches the tooth to the post. The type of dental restoration will depend on how many teeth are being replaced, so you may receive custom-made complete or partial dentures, a bridge or a crown. No matter what option is used, we strive to make sure that your implant is comfortable and pleasing to blend in with your smile.

At Gill Family Dentistry in Modesto, California, we encourage you to call (209) 549-1721 to find out more about dental implant restoration or to schedule your next visit with Dr. Amandeep S Gill. Our team is here for you!
