You Can Wear Only One Set of Dentures

Posted on 4/20/2019 by Front Desk
You Can Wear Only One Set of DenturesWe often find that when patients think about dentures, they imagine a completely false set of teeth. While this is something that is required from time to time, there are so many other possible variables. Did you know that you can have a denture on only one side of your mouth?

How about only an upper denture? It's possible! Let's look at some of the common combinations we see in our office and find a solution for your missing teeth.

Improve Your Oral Health

Dentures not only restore your smile, they improve your overall oral health. Having missing teeth on one side or missing all of the teeth on either the top or bottom arch can lead to complications with your remaining teeth. If the existing teeth have nothing to stop them, such as other teeth, they begin to shift in the mouth losing their place. Eventually, they can fall out as well, even if they're healthy. For this reason, our office encourages you to come in and see us if you're in need of a partial denture.

A removable prosthetic device can be made to fit the upper arch if you're missing those teeth. Or perhaps you suffered an injury to the face and are missing the teeth on one side of the mouth? These can be replaced by a partial dental prosthetic. The important thing is to maintain the integrity of the remaining teeth in the mouth, and this is achieved by wearing dentures or a partial denture in place of the missing teeth.

Keeping the surrounding teeth healthy is essential for good oral health, even after you've received an upper or lower denture. Brushing twice daily, scheduling regular cleanings and checkups with our office and maintaining good oral health will help your smile last for years, no matter how it's constructed. Call us today.
