Let’s face it. Age is just a number and most of us feel younger than the date that’s printed on our driver’s license. No matter how hard you may try to keep your true age a secret, one of your best assets — your smile — may be undermining your best efforts.
Cosmetic dentures from Modern Dentistry Associates are your go-to, affordable solution to renew, restore, and rejuvenate your smile and your appearance. Why? Because healthy teeth can say so much about your wellbeing, your age, and you! When you’re missing teeth you could start to lose density in your jaw bone causing your facial muscles to shrink and sink, while your upper lips can start to collapse creating a more pronounced nose. The end result is an overall appearance that’s anything but a real representation of the true, youthful you.
When you think of dentures, you may picture a mouth full of fake teeth that seem uneven and obvious. Maybe you think of your parents’ old-fashioned false teeth, spending more time soaking in a container rather than in their mouth due to discomfort.
Dr. Sven Erickson and the Modern Dentistry Associate invite you to challenge what you know or may think you know about antiquated dentures, by showing you that this attractive replacement for missing teeth can look, feel, and function like natural teeth — comfortably!
Missing a few, several, or all of your teeth? We encourage you to learn about how dentures will enhance your appearance and improve your dental health. When missing teeth are not replaced, existing teeth may shift out of place to create imbalanced bite that’s just not right. Dental issues such as TMD, speaking and chewing difficulties, and increased cavity risk could be next.
Modern, comfortable dentures are far more effective, stable, and attractive than the false teeth of the past. You can regain your confidence and live life to the fullest. When placed by skilled St. Joseph cosmetic dentistry Dr. Erickson, custom-made partial or full dentures can eliminate potential problems and restore your smile function.
We take the time to place dentures in a way that achieves highly aesthetic results. Dr. Erickson will perform a full mouth evaluation to assess your dental health, including the condition of your teeth, gums, and jaw bone.
If we feel you are a good candidate for dentures, we will describe the steps in detail and work together to create a treatment plan that suits your schedule and your budget.
Next, we will schedule your dentures appointment and make sure we have a comprehensive understanding of your needs before we begin the denture crafting process. Over two appointments, Dr. Erickson will work with our lab to create your dentures. Our team strives to ensure the two elements necessary for success are present: the perfect design and the perfect fit. Once your dentures are in place, Dr. Erickson will show you how you can get the most from them and keep them in optimal condition.
