Aging is inevitable. There’s nothing we can do to turn back the hand of time. The best we can do is try to slow it down a bit. Some people focus on healthy living – Endless yoga classes, vegan diets and probiotic kale smoothies, crossfit training and mini-marathons.
Some people fight aging by thrill-seeking – summiting Mt. Everest, bungee jumping into thick African fog, running with the bulls in Pamplona, trying to fit as much excitement as they can into their lives.

Wear and tear on your teeth is bound to happen over the years. Your teeth receive almost constant use throughout your life, and unfortunately we only get two sets, and we have our baby teeth for such a short period of time that they hardly even count. So, odds are you are going to have some dental problems. You may even lose a few teeth.
Missing teeth can age you prematurely. Not only do they make you look older than you are, they also make it harder for you to eat the foods you like, which affects the way you feel. Whether you’ve lost a single tooth to decay, or a lot of teeth from a freak yoga accident, replacing those teeth will get you back on track for a healthy youthful lifestyle.
If you’re missing front teeth you are less likely to smile. This can affect how you act in social situations and drastically inhibit your quality of life. To get the most out of life, you should be able to act freely and be yourself when meeting new and interesting people. This is hard to do if you’re self-conscious about your smile. Don’t let missing teeth have you feeling alone in a crowd, let Dr. Dine help you with some tooth replacements, so that you can let the social butterfly inside you fly free!
Missing back teeth, or molars, can have serious affect on your nutrition. You need those teeth to chew healthy foods that are high in fiber. If you are missing several back teeth, you may be more likely to eat soft, overly processed foods because they are easier to chew. This can lead to a number of nutritional problems, such as malnourishment, obesity, and even diabetes. In this case Missing teeth is not only a threat to your quality of life, it is a threat to your life itself. Please, don’t hesitate to come in and see Dr. Dine so he can get you back on track for a healthy lifestyle.
Partial dentures are just that: partial. If you still have some healthy teeth, but are missing a few, removable partial dentures may be the option for you. These dentures are made from a plastic base fitted with replacement teeth made for porcelain and plastic. They are molded to fit your mouth and held in place with a dental adhesive.
These are just like the partial dentures, but they replace your entire set of teeth. So if you’ve lost all your teeth, or have teeth that are unhealthy and need to be removed, full dentures are the way to go. Just like the partials, these dentures are molded to fit your mouth and require an adhesive to stay in place.
A third option for teeth replacement is implant-supported dentures. These are very similar to the full dentures mentioned above, but instead of a dental adhesive holding them in place, they are fixed to implants that are anchored to bone. This gives a secure fit that will make these teeth replacements look and feel like real teeth.
