Untreated gum disease and tooth decay can gradually compromise multiple teeth in your mouth. In time, this can result in total tooth loss or teeth with such weakened integrity that they are not efficiently up to the task of chewing your food. This can have a significant adverse effect on your quality of life.
For a mouth so seriously afflicted and compromised, Dr. Pantea Nooraee might recommend extracting the remaining teeth and fitting you for dentures.
These artificial teeth are designed to look like real teeth that have been set into a pink base that mimics the natural appearance of gums. They are removable and convenient. They effectively restore the full function and appearance of your teeth.
After the extraction process is complete, your dentist will cast a detailed impression of the structure of your mouth. This will be sent to a professional dental lab to serve as a guide for building your custom dentures.
The final dentures will fit firmly with your existing gum structure, yet many people with dentures also like to apply a fresh bead of denture adhesive for an extra-firm hold.
