A vibrant, beautiful smile is always an essential asset for people. Missing teeth, whether just some or all, not only affect your self-confidence but also increase the risk of developing other general health and nutritional problems. Dentures can restore your smile and make chewing and eating a normal part of your life again.
At Stone Lake Dentistry Cypress, TX 77429, we provide custom-made denture services that meet our patients' needs and comfort levels. We create state-of-the-art dentures that feel good and look natural on our patients.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace natural teeth. Dentures are designed to look like and work like natural teeth. They are carefully fabricated to restore your smile to its former appearance.
There are some dental conditions that may signal that you might need dentures. These include:
- Loose or moving teeth
- Several missing teeth
- Red and swollen gums
- Severe and persistent toothaches
- Difficulty chewing food
What Are the Two Main Kinds of Dentures?
Full or Complete Dentures
These dentures are used for patients when all of their natural teeth have been extracted. Traditional complete dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which might take several months. Meanwhile, immediate dentures can be fixed straight away after the teeth have been extracted and they may need regular adjustments during the first couple of months of use.
Partial Dentures consist of artificial teeth attached to a metal frame anchored to your natural teeth and can fill in the gaps created by the missing teeth. They are considered as a removable alternative to bridges.
Who Would Be Suitable For Dentures?
Dentures cannot be suitable for everyone. If you want to know if you need dentures and whether they are suitable for you, please arrange an appointment at our office. Based on an examination of your mouth, Dr. Christian Escobar can determine the best course of treatment for your dental health, and he will help you decide if dentures will work for you.
What Is the Process For Getting Dentures?
The process for getting dentures may include a few appointments to get X-rays, molds, and perfecting the look of the dentures. There is a tremendous amount of detailing that goes into the creation of a set of dentures. The prosthetic teeth are fabricated to look and feel as natural as possible, so we do our best to ensure that. On your part, clean and maintain dentures in a way similar to your natural teeth to keep bacteria away from your mouth.
