Missing teeth can cause far more than aesthetic displeasure. Missing teeth can result in shifting teeth, which can then result in bone loss in the jaw, which has its own set of complications!
By ignoring missing teeth you're putting yourself at risk of developing periodontal disease and losing more teeth to decay. Dentures are artificial teeth that can fill these spaces in your mouth and keep your smile and oral health in good shape.
Dentures can be made from different materials, often hardened porcelain and acrylic resin, and are made to look as natural as possible. Dentures can be created to fill the place of one missing tooth, several teeth, even all of patient's teeth depending on the nature and reason for their tooth loss.
Aside from aesthetic appearance, dentures will aid in chewing and speaking while supporting facial muscles to reduce the appearance of aging.
If you are missing one or more teeth, ask Dr. Kay at our North York Dental Office if dentures are the proper solution for you.
At our North York dental office, our fees are based on the most current Ontario Dental Association fee guide for General Practitioners for general dental services and the most current Ontario Dental Association fee guide for Specialists for specialty dental services.
