Simply put, tooth decay happens, and sometimes replacement teeth options are necessary. If you are looking at tooth replacement options, dental implants and dentures are common choices. Both have benefits, and at Nederland Family Dental we are proud to offer both treatment options for our patients, which allows you to choose the procedure that fits best with your unique oral health needs. Having a full white smile provides confidence and health, and we excited to help you find the best option for your needs!

Dentures at Your Nederland, TX Dental Office 

Dentures have been a widely used option for years, and they are one of the most affordable choices for tooth replacement. Dentures, when properly fitted, are a comfortable and sturdy option. Most patients can eat foods regularly and don't experience discomfort during the day while dentures are in place. Our team of experts will help you get the perfect fit for your dentures- since you don't have natural teeth to root in dentures, this is the most important part! We also offer partial denture services to help patients who only need to replace one damaged or lost tooth.

However, this isn't always the best option depending on your unique needs. Since you do have to remove and clean your dentures regularly, the process can be a bit tedious over time. Dentures that are not fit perfectly can sometimes cause serious gum irritation over time as well. 

Dental Implants Southeast TX

Dental implants are becoming more popular today because they are a permanent, stronger solution than dentures. Dental implants are actually surgically implanted to your jawbone to create a new tooth root. This process involves a healing period before your crowns can be placed, but once completed, dental implants look and feel just like your natural teeth. In fact, by using titanium for the implant post, your jawbone will actually bond to the implant, creating an extremely strong root for your crown to attach to. 

Dental implants are typically a more expensive option compared to dentures, and the process is much more extensive and time-consuming. However, the end result of dental implants is almost always preferable, which is why it's so popular!
