Taking care of your dental health is essential, and sometimes people experience things that may require more intensive care or changes in their daily routine. As people get older, the risk for tooth loss becomes more and more likely, and replacing lost teeth becomes a topic of discussion. When it comes to restoring smiles, replacing lost teeth, and maintaining good dental health, we here at the offices of Todd D Wortman, DDS can help, especially when it comes to Eastchester prosthodontics
Prosthetic teeth can help people recover after losing their teeth or parts of their teeth. A prosthetic refers to any artificial addition to a limb or part of the body in order to restore function, and teeth need prosthetics all the time. Known and referred to as prosthodontics in the field, these appliances can be used to restore smiles, resolve dental health concerns, prevent future or further damage, and allow you to continue to eat and speak as you normally do. In regards to removable dental prosthetics specifically, most would refer to bridges or dentures. Bridges can be used to replace few, or even single teeth, literally bridging the gap with an artificial tooth. Bridges can be fixed within the mouth, though most are removable for convenience. Dentures are also considered Eastchester prosthodontics
here with Todd D Wortman, DDS. Dentures can replace larger sections of lost teeth, even complete smiles. Dentures are applied and secure to the inside of the mouth with a paste that allows people to eat and speak confidently or remove their dentures when need be. There are plenty of benefits to considering both options when needed, and most importantly they can restore your health.
If you are missing teeth, then you may need Eastchester prosthodontics
