Teeth Lost to Severe Periodontal Disease Might Be Replaced by a Set of Permanent Dentures
Without professional treatment, periodontal disease will continue to progress. In time, the severe form of gum disease known as periodontitis can cause an infection to form near the roots of multiple teeth. When this happens you could suffering the loss of several teeth in a modest amount of time.
To address multiple cases of tooth loss Dr. Saad might recommend extracting your remaining teeth to prepare your mouth for a complete set of dentures. Our dental office offers an implant-supported denture that is permanent.
After the required extractions, your gums will be sutured and Dr. Saad can make an impression of your mouth. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide for the dental technicians who will craft your complete denture.
This dental appliance is custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. Our implant-supported dentures are supported by dental implants. These will improve your speaking and eating abilities greatly without worrying about your dentures coming out of place.
Many people with dentures like to clean their tongue once a day with a toothbrush or tongue scraper. This helps to remove plaque and bacteria to prevent bad breath.
