Missing teeth can cause any number of issues. Two of the larger issues it causes is strain on your bite and strain on your self-confidence. The gap left behind by missing teeth creates an imbalanced bite, creating strain on your jaw among other complications. Gaps in your smile can similarly stress you, making you feel self-conscious about your appearance and it may even affect your speech. But there is no need to worry once you visit our Homestead dental practice. Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA is here to offer you any number of dental procedures, including dental bridges and dentures which can completely restore your bite’s function and appearance.
Upon visiting Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA here at our Homestead dental practice, he will provide you with a thorough initial examination in order to determine your needs. During this preliminary examination, Dr. Cuckler will screen you for any serious conditions, oral cancer, and other concerns such as the presence of tooth decay or gingivitis. He will also examine your teeth and their supporting structures in order to determine which method of dentures will work best for you and your mouth. If you are only missing a few teeth or sections of teeth, the dental bridges are a possible option for you. These dental fixtures can be removed or fixable and use your remaining teeth as supports. Your artificial teeth are attached to these supports and literally fill in the gap left behind by your missing teeth. Dental bridges can be comprised of gold, alloys, porcelain or any combination of these materials. Your artificial teeth are made to look just like your remaining teeth so your smile is restored and you appear to have a complete smile. Dentures will also restore your smile, but are a better option for those who are missing most or all of their teeth. These appliances can be removed for easy cleaning as well.
You don’t have to worry about living with an incomplete smile. Visit Robert Cuckler, DDS, PA here at our Homestead dental practice today. Your visit with Dr. Cuckler will help determine which denture method is right for you and will bring you one step closer to having a complete smile again.
