Dentures in Frisco, TX
As most patients contemplate the replacement of missing teeth, many believe they have only two options: dental implants or traditional dentures. However, with advancements in modern dentistry, an option that combines both procedures is now available.
Implant-Supported Dentures use dental implants to support an attached dental denture for the replacement of your missing teeth. Since implant-supported dentures do not rest on your gums in the same way traditional dentures do, they offer a variety of additional advantages.
Permanent Dentures Over Traditional
While traditional dentures are a suitable solution for replacing missing teeth, they fall short in benefits when compared to implant-supported dentures.
A few notable advantages in using Implant-Supported Dentures over removable sets:
1. Permanent dentures allow for easier use in both speaking and chewing. While traditional dentures may tend to fall or shift, implant-supported dentures remain set and securely attached.
2. Permanent dentures allow for a healthier mouth. Implant-supported dentures stimulate and preserve your jawbone and can replace some of your natural tooth roots and slow natural bone deterioration.
3. Implant-supported dentures fit more comfortably and are easier for all patients to maintain over time. Most patients with traditional dentures will at some time experience pain from soft spots in their gum line.
Placing dentures or losing a tooth is common for patients of various ages. Losing teeth may occur for a variety of different reasons, including decay, damage from trauma or an accident, gum disease, or age. Redemption Dental Frisco can provide dentures that are fabricated to fit your mouth comfortably and offer reliability, strength and stability as you speak and chew. For your convenience, we’ve described full and partial dentures:
Full dentures replace your teeth when you’ve lost your entire upper, lower, or both arches. They are comprised of an acrylic base that will be colored and molded to closely resemble your gums. The base of your dentures will sit over your gums and fit precisely. This will help restore your bite and dental appearance. Full dentures allow you to chew effectively, speak clearly, and smile confidently. These dentures are removable and require regular care at home. We make adjustments in our office when necessary, so you can be confident you will enjoy many years of dependable use of your dentures.
If you have suffered the loss of one or more teeth but still have surrounding natural ones remaining, partial dentures fill the gaps. Partials include a base that will sit over the gums and hold your durable artificial teeth. Our dentist will attach the partial denture to the teeth located adjacent to the open space and restore the appearance of a full row of teeth. We will create custom partial dentures to precisely fit the space and blend visually with the rest of your mouth. Your partial will require regular care from both our office and at home. Removable dentures last for multiple years and will give you a confident smile once again.
