The American College of Prosthodontists estimates that some 35 million Americans do not have any teeth, and approximately 178 million are missing at least one tooth. Those numbers are expected to increase as baby boomers continue to age. Tooth loss can be the result of severe decay and periodontal disease or the result of traumatic injury, cancer, or abnormal wear. Regardless of the reason, tooth replacement is vital in order to avoid other oral health problems and even consequences to your general health. I offer several different options for tooth replacement.

When you are missing any of your natural teeth, the entire balance of your bite and your smile is dramatically diminished. Whether your tooth loss is due to decay, periodontal disease, or injury, replacing those missing teeth is the single most important thing you can do. At Groy Family Dentistry, we understand the impact that missing teeth can have on your health and on your daily life. That’s why we are proud to offer premium quality, fully custom-crafted dentures and partials to our patients from Leesburg, VA and nearby communities.
Reclaiming Your Smile with Custom Dentures
Missing even a single tooth can drastically alter your lifestyle in more ways than one. When a missing tooth isn’t replaced in a timely manner, surrounding teeth begin to shift and tilt inward toward the gap in an attempt to take on more of the work required to chew. Bone tissue in the jaw begins to deteriorate, a problem that contributes to further tooth loss.
In addition, people with missing teeth tend to feel self-conscious about their appearance. They typically smile less often, and this can lead to loss of self-confidence. With dentures, you can show off a beautifully seamless smile that shines as brightly as your personality. Dentures can help support the structure of your facial contours, giving you a more youthful and attractive appearance.
One of the most important reasons to get dentures surrounds not only your oral health, but your overall physical wellness. After all, when you are incapable of chewing properly, your body can become weak and malnourished. Dentures allow men and women who have lost multiple teeth to continue to enjoy a fully balanced diet of healthy foods; this becomes particularly important as we age. With quality-crafted dentures and partials, you can feel free to eat more of the foods you love and need for continued health and well-being.
