It’s easy to think that dentures aren’t an option for your tooth restoration needs. After all, dentures are only for old people sitting in rocking chairs at the old folks’ home, right?

Well, not exactly. In fact, many people of all ages use dentures to replace their missing teeth and provide a better-looking and functioning smile.

To help you understand this, our team at Shanker Dental in Bridgeton, New Jersey, put this piece together.

Partial dentures
Partial dentures, more commonly known as partials, are great for restoring missing teeth. If you’re missing teeth in a row on one side of your mouth and don’t want a bridge, or don’t have the gum or jaw health to support one, then a partial denture is your best bet.

Help people with poor oral health
If your tooth loss was due to any form of gum disease, an abscess, or other infection, then it’s likely that your oral health isn’t in the best shape. If that’s the case, then the option of implants, crowns, or bridges just aren’t going to work. All of those solutions require more oral health than most people with lost teeth have.

While it’s easy to write dentures off as not the solution for you and your smile’s needs, the truth is that they can make a major impact on your smile’s overall look.
