When you’re missing most or all of your teeth many activities become challenging. Talking and smiling may feel embarrassing, which affects your confidence and your relationships. Biting, chewing and eating the foods you would normally enjoy becomes increasingly difficult, causing your diet and nutrition to suffer. When you have missing teeth it also affects your oral health and puts you at an increased risk for more tooth loss. Life can feel pretty hopeless in this situation! At James Block Dentistry, we want you to know that there is hope, and you don’t have to struggle with missing teeth any longer because we have a number of great options for dentures in Fremont.
What is a Denture?
A denture is removable appliance, typically made of acrylic that is designed to replace an entire arch of teeth. Dentures rely on excellent fit and suction to stay in place, and occasionally a dental adhesive. There is often a learning curve for patients and it takes some time to get used to talking and eating with your new denture, however you will appreciate how it immediately restores your smile and even changes the appearance of your face.
What is a Neuromuscular Denture?
At James Block Dentistry, we’re proud to offer our patients the most state-of-the-art treatments that dentistry has available. For this reason Dr. Block offers neuromuscular dentures. This type of denture combines a traditional denture with new technology that better supports your facial structure because impressions are taken of your face in motion, rather than at rest.
This means your denture will have a more natural shape and better function than a traditional denture. A better fit also reduces the bone loss and gum sensitivity that typically goes along with traditional dentures. The result is better form and function and a smile that takes years off of your face!
What Are Implant Supported Dentures?
Dental implants are a great way to provide stability and a firm foundation for better fitting dentures. Dr. Block works closely with an oral surgeon who will strategically place dental implants in your jawbone that will hold and support your denture. With implant supported dentures there is no learning curve, as you won’t have any movement or slippage when you eat or talk. Implants also help stimulate your jawbone, which keeps it healthy and protects it from deterioration.
At James Block Dentistry we’re proud to offer a number of options that will help restore beauty and function to your smile. Dr. Block will discuss your goals for your smile with you so he can help you select the right treatment option for your needs.
