Regarding loss of some teeth or all you don't have to worry about it, nothing is permanent. We would recommend in such scenarios dentures might help and bring back your smile.
Dentures can be of two types:
As the name suggest, when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw, partial dentures are used to fill in the spaces created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from changing position. RPD are basically replacement artificial teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which rests on a framework that attaches to your natural teeth.
In some cases, when you need to have all teeth replaced or have no teeth left due to age or some other reasons, complete dentures are used. They contain a flesh-colored acrylic base which fits over gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate which mean roof of our mouth and the lower denture is horseshoe shaped to accommodate the tongue.
BENEFITS OF DENTURES: Replacing missing teeth will help to improve your appearance and smile.
