Tired of Living with Missing Teeth? Discover the Benefits of Modern Dentures
Your smile is one of the first things that suffers when you lose natural teeth. Tooth loss can also impair your ability to eat and speak, wreak havoc on your oral health, not to mention your social life. That’s why it’s important to replace lost teeth. Modern dentures could be just what you need if you’ve lost multiple teeth in a row or all of your teeth due to gum disease or dental decay/cavities. Complete dentures & partials from Flower Mound Dental in Flower Mound, Texas, offer a practical and cost-effective means of replacing lost teeth.
Modern Denture Features
When it comes to comfort, functionality, and appearance, today’s dentures are a significant upgrade from dentures of the past due to advances in denture technology. Modern dentures are composed of a lightweight acrylic resin material for the base that’s flexible for greater comfort and durable for long-lasting use. The teeth attached to that base look absolutely real. Dr. Wyatt will take impressions of your mouth, jaw, and teeth to have dentures customized for your use. Custom-made dentures are of higher quality, fit more comfortably and function better for biting, chewing, and grinding your food. They also have a more natural-looking appearance to enhance your smile. Dr. Wyatt likes to call them “Drop Dead Gorgeous”.
Dentures come in two types: complete dentures & partial dentures.
- Complete dentures replace all your teeth and fall under the category of “immediate” or “conventional” dentures. Immediate dentures are generally placed in your mouth the same day of having natural teeth removed. They’re often used as temporary teeth until your mouth has healed. Afterward, Dr. Wyatt can fit you with a set of customized conventional dentures for permanent use.
- A removable partial denture is used to replace missing teeth when there are still some solid, natural teeth left. Partial dentures often come with a metal framework connected to a gum-colored base for support. Partials restore the appearance and function of your smile and keep adjacent teeth in alignment.
All dentures, whether complete or partial, benefit from having dental implants placed under them to help hold them in place.
Traditional complete and partial dentures are removed at night for soaking and cleaning.
