Patients who frequently forget to brush their teeth each morning and night, or who have a bad habit of forgetting to floss once per day often experience a buildup of hardened tartar at the gumline. Over time the presence of these bacterial deposits can lead to chronic problems with gum disease.
Without professional intervention and treatment from a dentist like Dr. Marc Resnick, severe gum disease could start to compromise the roots of multiple teeth which could lead to tooth loss.
Many patients struggling with chronic gum disease lack the sufficient bone structure to a support a dental implant restoration. In a case like this our dentist might recommend a partial denture.
This is essentially a removable oral appliance will be carefully designed to correspond to the shape and location of your missing teeth. The unit includes a pink base which will closely mimic the appearance of your natural gums.
When it’s worn in your mouth the casual observer will struggle to notice a difference between the partial denture and the surrounding natural teeth.
While the partial denture will fit securely in place, you might like to apply some denture adhesive when you install the unit each morning. It can help lock the denture in place while also helping to block out stray food particles from irritating your gums.
