Without professional treatment, the chronic periodontal disease will gradually worsen. If it develops into the chronic gum infection of periodontitis, you might experience a gradual loss of bone structure near the roots of your teeth.
This could lead to multiple cases of tooth loss. Even the existing teeth in your mouth could still be severely compromised.In a case of developing terminal dentition like this, Dr. Jeffrey Brink might recommend removing your remaining teeth to prepare you for the process of fitting you for dentures.
Once your gums have been sutured, an impression will be made of your general periodontal structure. This information will be sent to a dental lab where your complete denture will be created.
Your new denture will fit firmly with the remaining structure of your gums. However, many denture wearers still like to use denture adhesive for an extra secure hold. It can also help prevent stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
If you live in the Whitmore Lake, Michigan, area and you have been struggling with chronic gum disease problems you should call 810-231-2288 to schedule an appointment at Lakeview Dental Care’s dental offices.
