Usually, when you lose a tooth, it is best for your oral health to have it replaced. Missing teeth can affect your “bite” as well as your ability to speak and chew. Their loss can increase the burden on your remaining teeth and can cause muscle pain in your jaws and headaches. And of course, losing a tooth can affect your appearance. The following information reviews replacing missing teeth with an implant retained denture. Although many patients have no problem wearing an upper denture, some people find it difficult to wear and eat with lower dentures.
Remember that it will take time to adjust to the feel of your new bite. When the bite is altered or the position of the teeth is changed it takes several days for the brain to recognize the new position of your teeth or their thickness as normal. If you continue to detect any high spots or problems with your bite, call our office at Sonora Office Phone Number 209-532-4376 so we can schedule an adjustment appointment. It is normal to experience some hot and cold sensitivity.
Periodontal disease is a serious infection under your gum line. ARESTIN® (minocycline hydrochloride) is an antibiotic that kills the bacteria that causes the infection. ARESTIN® starts working quickly, right at the source of infection, and keeps fighting bacteria long after you leave the dental office. 1,2 ARESTIN® fights infection and inflammation for 30 days,2 and provides significantly better results than scaling and root planing alone for up to 90 days.3
