Part of being your family dental center is accommodating the needs of your entire family, from young to old. That is why in addition to dentistry and orthodontics, we also offer dentures in Jacksonville.
Our dentures are for more than senior citizens—they can also help people of any age who have missing teeth or have unhealthy teeth. Full dentures or partial dentures can be a great help to those who suffer from missing or unhealthy teeth that cannot be replaced with dental implants. If your gums and jawbone are not sufficiently strong and healthy, dental implants cannot be placed in the jawbone. In such cases, the dentist may recommend a full or partial denture as an option to facilitate chewing and talking.
In addition to offering functional benefits, dentures offer aesthetic improvements as well. A denture will make your face look fuller and fill out areas that look limp or where the skin sags due to missing teeth. Dentures will provide needed support to your lips, cheeks, and mouth area to stop drooping or distension from getting any worse.
Within a few weeks of getting your dentures, the look of your face might totally change. Some people will tell you that you look younger and more vital, and some might not recognize you at all. If you are missing teeth and you're looking for a way to turn back the hands of time in Jacksonville, full or partial dentures might be right for you.
