The best thing that you can wear is a youthful appearance. When teeth are lost, the bone that was where the teeth were dissolves, resorbs, and the facial appearance begins to fall inward, skin droops, and generally one begins to look older regardless of age.
If one is unfortunate such that they lose all of their teeth and need to wear a complete denture, some of the tissue that had been lost can be replaced by the pink part or flange of the denture. If the teeth are positioned properly, and the flange is built out appropriately, the missing teeth can be replaced physiologically by the denture, essentially giving someone a “facelift using a denture”.
I have studied this phenomenon extensively as a specialist, and after doing this esthetic treatment for over 30 years, I consider myself somewhat of an expert in this concept. Actually, most dentists’ hate doing dentures, I absolutely love doing them. This is why Prosthodontics became my passion. I am confident that you will agree that a quality denture will enhance your youthful appearance and esthetics. My highly trained staff and I excel in the esthetic demands of the most discerning denture wearer. Contact us to learn more.
