Dentures Could be Right for You if You are Missing Teeth
Patients with missing teeth have enjoyed the benefits of dentures for centuries.
Dentures themselves have dramatically improved over the years. Today, they look more realistic than ever and give patients a reliable method of replacing missing teeth.
In order for dentures to fit well, you have to have enough bone to hold your denture in place. For your upper denture, this is usually not a problem since the dentures uses your upper palate to create suction, holding your upper denture in place well enough to eat most foods.
Often, the lower denture creates more problems when it comes to fit. A lower denture can move and come loose as you chew or speak if your bony ridge is diminished due to resorption, or bone loss. For many patients, this significantly reduces the foods they can eat and makes them feel self-conscious.
Fortunately, at Nederland Family Dental, we have a solution for ill-fitting dentures. We can place several dental implants to hold your denture in place. Dental implants give you greater stability, function, and confidence, and they can also allow you to eat a wider variety of foods.
The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for dentures is to call our Southeast Texas dental office to schedule a consultation.
Dentures have come a long way since people first started wearing them—and even since dentists first introduced modern dentures decades ago.
If you’re considering dentures in Nederland, TX, you can rest assured that they will look natural and attractive.
Because more high-quality dental materials are available than ever before, it’s easier for dentists to make dentures that look like natural teeth than it was in the past. While dentures of the past consisted only of cheap, fragile plastics, modern dentures rely on sturdy ceramic to replicate existing teeth.
We can customize your dentures to reflect the characteristics of your natural smile, matching the gum color closely to your actual gums and the false teeth to your natural teeth if you’re getting a partial denture. Your Nederland, TX dentures will have depth, texture, and the necessary variances that help them look like real teeth rather than a row of perfect plastic.
Our dentist is happy to meet with you if you have additional questions or concerns about the look and feel of your dentures. If you have missing teeth and are considering different tooth replacement options, dentures make a great choice because they are versatile and often less expensive than other dental restorations.
