Benefits of Dentures
Here are some of the most popular advantages of dentures:
- Confidence— If you’ve been hiding your smile due to missing teeth, you can now enjoy boosted confidence with the ability to flash your grin at any moment.
- Appearance—Enjoy a beautifully full smile that is ready for any occasion.
- Function—Your new dentures will allow you to eat foods that you haven’t been able to chew with missing teeth.
- Health—If you elect for implant-retained dentures, you can receive the health benefits of dental implants—they stimulate your jawbone to keep it strong.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures have been used for centuries to give patients the gift of a full smile. Thankfully, modern dentistry has allowed us the opportunity to provide dentures that are more comfortable and functional than ever. The lightweight resins that they are made of today have come a long way since animal bone and wood dentures in the past. We offer three different types of dentures to give you the option that works best for your needs.
Your Many Denture Style Options
Here in our Longview office, we provide a number of denture styles and fits, both permanent and removable. With this wide variety of options, we can find a combination that is perfect for you and your dental needs.
Partial dentures allow us to replace your missing teeth while leaving your remaining natural teeth intact. Sort of like filling in the missing pieces to a puzzle, we custom-make dentures to fill the gaps in your smile. These partials are typically held in place using clasps that attach to your existing teeth.
Full dentures are the quickest way to restore your full smile. These are composed of a gum-colored, composite resin base that is attached to your false teeth. These dentures rest on top of your gums, and they’re held in place using suction or adhesive. Full dentures are completely removable, but they require daily cleaning and maintenance.
Custom High-End Dentures
Modern technology makes denture crafting into a real art. We can measure your mouth with more exactness than ever before, and make sure that your denture set fits with absolute precision. These custom dentures are also designed to look just like your natural teeth—so your dentures are uniquely yours!
With implant-retained dentures, you get the advantages of both dentures and dental implants. We will place dental implants in your jaw at strategic positions to serve as supports for your dentures. Then, we’ll mount your custom-made denture to your implants to give you a full smile with unmatched function and comfort.
With implant supports, these dentures can be made either permanent or removable, each with a list of great benefits.
- Permanent Dentures | Never worry about adhesives, nightstand cups, or meal-time slippage again. Permanent implant dentures both look and function like a natural set of teeth.
- Removable Dentures | Gain all the benefits of implant-supported dentures while still being able to remove them for comfort or cleaning.
