Do I Need Dentures with Natural Teeth?
Dentures are not only for people missing a full mouth of natural teeth and, contrary to popular belief, they are not only for elderly people. Partial dentures provide tooth replacement options for people who are missing one or several natural teeth. Whether you have lost a tooth playing sports or have had several removed due to dental concerns, dentures could be the right solution. Patients of all ages find dentures to be a suitable and affordable tooth replacement choice. If you still have natural teeth but need one or many replaced, visit your dental clinic in Scarborough. The team at Sheridan Cyrus Dentistry is happy to provide a personal assessment and determine if dentures are right for your tooth loss concerns. We offer a range of dental services for patients of all ages and can provide advice for everything
from baby’s teething to lost adult teeth.

Advantages of Partial Dentures
Consider the following advantages dentures offer individuals that still have natural teeth:
• Natural Appearance: Partial dentures can be created to match the colour and shape of your existing teeth. In addition to a complete smile, you will also enjoy how partial dentures maintain the facial structure.
• Easy Eating and Speaking: Missing teeth can make chewing foods difficult and increase the risk of food particles becoming caught in oral tissue. Speech may also be impaired by missing teeth, which can cause difficulty with pronunciation. Partial dentures allow your full teeth to be restored. After a brief adjustment period, you should be able to enjoy your favourite foods and speak clearly again with confidence.
• Maintain Other Teeth: When you lose teeth, it is natural for surrounding teeth to over-erupt or repositions themselves to fill the new space. Wearing partial dentures limits the risk of this happening. This is particularly important for patients who have had expensive orthodontic work completed for a straight smile.
• Easy Maintenance: Even though they are not natural, your dentures will still require some care to keep them from developing bacteria, odours, and to maintain their appearance. They should be thoroughly cleaned and soaked in a denture solution each night to keep them from drying out.
