DENTURES

About Dentures & Partials

Everyone wants to have a dazzling and beautiful smile and having a complete set of teeth has a lot to do with it. If any of your teeth are missing, the rest of the teeth will drift & change position.  These misaligned teeth can damage tissue in your mouth and it can be difficult to maintain oral hygiene if you have crooked/misaligned teeth.  This leads to a build-up of bacteria and increases the risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease and you will end up losing more teeth. 

Understanding what Dentures are

Full or partial dentures can be used to effectively fill all the gaps that the missing teeth have created. Many people feel that dentures are specifically used to replace a full set of teeth. But the fact is, it is possible to get partial dentures (partials), to fill in those gaps.  Removable partial dentures can be used fill spaces that have been created by missing teeth. They help you chew

your food properly and fill out your smile too.

EXTRACTIONS

The Process of Wisdom Teeth Removal

When you go to the dentist complaining about a tooth ache, he/she will first check for cavities. There are times when an impacted wisdom tooth might give you some trouble and this is a very common issue. The fact is that impacted wisdom teeth will just keep on in-growing into your jaw and lead to misalignment of the rest of your teeth.

At times, these teeth start growing sideways & affect the adjacent teeth. All of these issues add pressure to the adjacent teeth and they will start becoming crooked. If you feel that any of your wisdom teeth have got impacted, it is crucial that you contact a dentist for checking whether extraction is required.
