Our Dentures Are Better Than Ever
Hello and welcome to our online dental education platform!
We delve into a wide range of subjects with this blog because Dr. Folden and Dr. Westbrook offer a comprehensive brand of family dentistry here at All Smiles. From your baby’s first visit to your teen’s orthodontic needs to teeth replacement for older adults, we can give you what you want (and what you need) at every stage of life.
The nice thing is that, with us, you won’t ever get outsourced to expensive specialists because we have the tools training and technology to provide everything you need in one convenient location (our office on Highway 79 East).
To that end, we wanted to talk a little bit about what we can offer in the way of dentures and how much they have improved from those slippery models that your grandparents were forced to endure.
Keep reading, and then be sure to follow up with our Jacksonville, TX team!
What Are Dentures?
In case you didn’t know, dentures are the name for removable, artificial, replacement teeth. They are also known as dental prosthetics. They have been around in one form or another for about as long as humans have been losing teeth!
Can Dentures Restore My Life?
Yes! If you are reading this, you more than likely already know the problems that tooth loss can introduce into your daily existence. When you have missing or extracted teeth, this dental prosthetic is an excellent solution for helping you with chewing fiber-rich food as well as improving your appearance and boosting your self-confidence. That’s saying a lot, right?
Which Conventional Dentures Are Available?
Like we said, removable dentures are better now than in previous eras of dentistry. Here is what you can expect with them: a set of natural-looking replacement teeth held in a gum-colored mold.
Full dentures can replace an entire arch of teeth. They fit snugly over your gums, and they are held there by a combination of suction and a special adhesive.
Partial dentures replace some of your teeth in a row. They are usually held by small clasps holding on to neighboring teeth. Both are easy to clean, because you can take them out as needed.
Can Dental Implants Stabilize My Dentures?
For sure! If you want a stronger hold, we offer fixed dentures that are held firmly in place with dental implants. This option provides a stronger, more solid hold than removable dentures, but here’s the only thing: because they use implants, not every patient can use them. But we can work all that out during your consultation.
Are Dentures An Easy And Affordable Solution?
Dentures will give you a practical and cost-effective solution for restoring your missing teeth. They will help you get back on track fast. If dentures are an option for you, we will discuss whether removable dentures or fixed would work best.
We hope that you have been inspired by today’s post.
