Fill in the gap of missing teeth with an experienced dentist in Willoughby Hills, OH

Man with missing tooth

Missing teeth, whether due to tooth decay, gum disease, or trauma, can affect a person’s self-confidence. Many people refrain from smiling and social situations out of fear of embarrassment. Finding a way to bring back your smile without breaking the bank is very important.
With so many options for replacing teeth, patients can be overwhelmed. Dentures may be the best choice for many because they are less expensive than other alternatives. Dentures are effective in filling the gaps from missing teeth and supporting your facial structure to maintain your appearance.
Depending on the situation, patients may need either partial or full dentures. Partial dentures are utilized for one or more missing teeth and fit in and around existing teeth. Full dentures are used to replace an entire set of teeth, which could be the top, bottom, or both.
Many patients are worried that dentures will be uncomfortable or unnatural. With an experienced dentist like Dr. Stern, patients in Willoughby Hills can be sure that their smile will look natural. Dr. Stern is extremely skilled in the design of dentures that patients will find comfortable and stable.
Dentures do require an adjustment period. Patients will need to get used to the feel and train the muscles in their mouth to work with the dentures. Dr. Stern is happy to give you tips for making the transition easy, and after a few weeks, you will no longer feel awkward with your new, beautiful smile.
Proper care of your dentures is essential to ensure they will last and work properly. It is extremely important that the dentures have a good fit in your mouth. Dr. Stern works with his patients to make sure they know how dentures are supposed to fit. It is imperative that you express any pain or discomfort you may feel. You will need to make sure to clean your dentures daily and when you are not wearing them, keep them in a safe place to ensure they will not be broken.
