Periodontal disease, tooth decay, and injury can all cause the loss of your natural teeth. Losing your teeth may be a highly emotional experience that affects your lifestyle, appearance, and confidence. Dr. Kratz and our staff invite you to openly share any anxiety, concerns, or other emotions you are experiencing.
If you have lost all or some of your teeth, dentures can replace your missing smile and restore your ability to do things such as eat and speak. A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth. Complete dentures replace all of the teeth. Partial dentures fill in the spaces left by missing teeth and are secured by the remaining teeth.
Dr. Kratz will recommend regular check-ups to monitor the health of your oral tissues and the fit of your dentures.
Dental implants are a common alternative to dentures. Depending on your unique oral health situation and personal goals, Dr. Kratz will recommend the treatment option that is best for you.
