Holistic dentist in Lakewood restores health and beauty to the smile with partial dentures
Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among adults 65 and older. Trauma and accidents can also cause tooth loss. Regardless of the cause, it is critical to seek treatment when missing one or more teeth. Left untreated, several issues can develop including teeth shifting, tooth decay, and periodontal disease. The gums may shrink, resulting in a collapse of the facial structure. Men and women suffering from tooth loss often seek gentle care from holistic dentist Dr. Scott Stewart at his Lakewood practice, South Lakewood Dental. Dr. Stewart has the skills and expertise to restore health as well as beauty to the smile. He provides various types of partial and full dentures to meet unique patient needs.
Leading with one of the latest advances in denture treatments, he provides Fountain of Youth Dentures. With these dentures, patients can turn back the hands of time without facelift surgery. Traditional dentures are designed to rest on top of gum tissue. However, they do not provide the even pressure the jawbone is accustomed to with natural teeth when biting and chewing. This can result in jawbone resorption, causing patients to appear older than their actual age. Their aging appearance can include folds of tissue around the mouth, jowls hanging below the jaw, and hanging skin under the chin.
Fountain of Youth Dentures are designed to provide even pressure across the gums and jawbone. The denture rests partially on the muscles. Dr. Stewart will place the denture precisely so it can build the bite at a position optimal for muscle function. This results in better facial support, achieving greater facial aesthetics.
Utilizing these types of dentures, Dr. Stewart strives to ensure facial harmony while treating tooth loss. There are many benefits of restoring missing teeth with dentures including:
- Restoring the ability to chew, bite, and speak properly
- Renewing confidence and boosting self-esteem
- Preventing other issues such as teeth shifting
Fountain of Youth Dentures is just one of many denture treatments available at South Lakewood Dental. Would you like explore your candidacy for dentures? We recommend scheduling a consultation with Dr. Stewart by calling (855) 233-0023 today.Back to Dentures Page
