Teeth serve many purposes; notably, they support facial structure. The sac-like, surrounding alveolar bone remains strong due to the stimulation it gets from teeth. Every time you chew food you’re keeping that supportive bone strong. Even the hundreds of fleeting contacts that occur between your teeth throughout the day, go a long way to maintain bone strength. With no teeth to maintain those contacts and stimulation, bone growth stops. In fact, it’s estimated 25 percent of the width of bone supporting a tooth is lost within one year of extraction. You may notice changes to the appearance of your face, due to tooth loss! Bone loss results in a sunken appearance as the cheeks and lips don’t have as much support, and ultimately, the lower third of your face can look much smaller and out of proportion with other features.
Back teeth are often among the first to go, because it’s tougher to keep them clean, and grooved surfaces promote decay. When molars go, the front and canine teeth pick up the slack – and they’re designed to bite and tear not to chew. The discomfort and annoyance of eating may lead you to avoid foods necessary for a healthy diet. Digestion can be affected when food isn’t chewed into sufficiently small pieces. Altered eating leads to still other health consequences — nutritional deficiencies connected to conditions such as constipation, arthritis, rheumatism, heart problems, and more.
Dr. Suri and her team like to say, “buyer beware.” Shopping for dentures or any other major investment on price alone is setting yourself up for disappointment. Little Elm Dental encourages you to consider the value you’re getting from this type of tooth replacement as a long-term investment in your health and well-being. It’s not enough to replace teeth with dentures; the type of denture and dental provider matters. Dentures that don’t fit well can accelerate the effects of bone loss. Dentures that slide or slip are signs of poor fit, as are lingering sores. There is an adjustment period associated with dentures, as you get used to wearing them. But ongoing soreness, for instance, is a sign that the dental appliances themselves may need to be adjusted.
Little Elm Dental distinguishes its dentures favorably from other offices in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro in numerous ways – benefits that also address many of the fears and concerns patients have about extractions and tooth replacement procedures:
