If you are missing some of your teeth, or all of your teeth, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do about restoring them. Fortunately, there are quite a few restorative dentistry options available today that could work well for you. One of the most common for those who are missing all of their teeth, or a large number of their teeth, is dentures. You might even be a candidate for dentures.
One of the myths surrounding dentures is that a person needs to have lost all of their teeth to be a candidate for dentures. That is simply not the case. There are many options today for partial dentures, which are for those who have only lost some of their teeth. Of course, there are options for those who have lost all of their upper or lower teeth, or both, as well.
The dentists in Mundelein at Roessler, DDS will want to examine your mouth to get a better idea of the state of your oral health. They can then make a better determination on whether you will make a good candidate for dentures. They may also have some other restorative dentistry options you can consider. Some of the other types of options the restorative dentist might suggest include dental bridges and implants.
Keep in mind that some people are not good candidates for dentures. Those who are young and who do not have fully developed jaws are not good candidates. In addition, those who grind their teeth or clench their teeth may not be good candidates.
