Tooth loss and dentures are often considered a natural part of aging. Although people do lose teeth as they age, elderly people are not the only ones who benefit from dentures. Some young people also need to replace lost or badly damaged teeth. Removing the age stigma of dentures can help young people feel more confident in their new smiles.

Victims of Abuse

Physical abuse can leave lasting mental and physical damage. In many cases, physical abuse leads to serious tooth damage that haunt you long after you escape from your abuser. Your broken smile stares back at you every time you look in the mirror, reminding you of the violence you suffered. If you’ve lost a significant number of teeth to abuse, A New You Dentures™ will help you reclaim the smile that your abuser stole from you.

Other Physical Trauma

Life is unpredictable. You never know when an unexpected accident will damage your teeth beyond the help of cosmetic dentistry. Crashing your car, hitting a tree while skiing, and even tripping and hitting your mouth on the sidewalk all take a toll on your mouth. These accidents can strike at any age. Dentures help you rebuild your smile after physical trauma.

Bad Teeth

As a general rule in dentistry, repairing damaged teeth whenever possible is better for your long-term oral health than removing them. A smile makeover can often restore bad teeth to give you a bright smile. Every now and then, however, cases surface where an individual has such bad teeth that dentures are the best solution. The cause of severe tooth problems ranges from growing up in a poor household with low nutrition and little dental care to genetics. In these cases, we will work with you to determine the dental care best suited to your needs.


Some diseases can cause an early onset of periodontal disease (gum disease), which causes tooth loss if left untreated. The most notorious tooth loss-causing condition is diabetes. Imbalances in your blood sugar levels can compromise your gum health. More and more young people are developing diabetes. If you suffer from diabetes, staying on top of your oral hygiene and having two dental cleanings per year can help you protect your oral health.

The Benefits of Dentures

At Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake, we create A New You Dentures™ to restore your good looks. These dentures are carefully crafted for you in order to restore your confidence and the functionality of your smile. We combine our advanced knowledge of neuromuscular dentistry with cosmetic dentistry to craft you comfortable dentures that work with the natural movement of your jaw. By applying neuromuscular dentistry, we create dentures that will not cause you to develop temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ). Poorly fitted dentures can cause this painful jaw joint dysfunction. Your new smile will also support the muscles in your face so that you do not develop facial sagging where your teeth used to provide support.

If you suffer from bad or missing teeth and would like to learn more about the benefits of A New You Dentures™, please contact Advanced Dentistry of Mohegan Lake today for an appointment with a Mohegan Lake sleep dentist.
