Partial & Complete Dentures in Mesquite, TX
Adult tooth loss is a problem that many people have to deal with, and it can have serious consequences.
If you've lost teeth, you know that one of the most significant problems is that the gap in your smile is embarrassing when you are around others.
But an even more significant problem is that tooth loss can make it difficult to speak clearly and eat the healthy foods your body needs for proper nutrition. Another result of missing teeth is an increased chance that neighboring teeth will start to tilt into the empty space, resulting in alignment issues.
Today, if you are looking for a tooth replacement, you are lucky to have several options, so you don't have to worry about any of these problems. Full and partial dentures are artificial teeth that have always been a good choice because they are a solution that works well for just about everyone.
Are Dentures in Mesquite, TX, the Right Choice for You?
There are several things to consider when choosing dentures and deciding whether or not they're the best choice for you. At Town East Dental Group, we have a couple of tooth replacement options to choose from, so we will help you weigh the pros and cons of each.
A full denture sits on top of your gums and is recommended when all upper teeth, lower teeth, or both are missing. The upper plate stays in place with suction, and the lower is held in place by gravity.
A partial denture in Mesquite fits around your other teeth to fill empty spaces. They consist of an acrylic (plastic) base that attaches to the remaining natural teeth with metal clasps.
Implant-supported dentures are either full or partial dentures that are held securely in place by dental implants anchored in your jaw.
We Design Natural-Looking Dentures
Do you worry that your dentures will look fake and obvious? It's a common concern, but our dentists in Mesquite, TX, have the experience and skill needed to design dentures that enhance your appearance and make you want to share your smile with everyone. We work with custom dental labs that use state-of-the-art materials to carefully craft your dentures to complement features like your skin tone, eye, and hair color.
By taking our time with the design process, we can deliver a final result that looks as close to natural teeth as possible.
One of the biggest complaints we hear about dentures is that they move around too much and sometimes fall when you are laughing, smiling, or even yawning! No one needs to know what the inside of your denture looks like, so if you want some extra security for your smile, Dr. RJ Loera can help.
A Few Implants Make a World of Difference
Using a few dental implants, usually between 2-6, we can create a denture that locks into place with attachments on the dental implants. Since your dental implants are rooted in your jawbone, they stabilize your denture when you need it most. Your implant denture can give you your freedom and self-esteem back.
Dental implants also have the added benefit of stimulating the jawbone and reducing bone resorption.
Who Can Benefit from an Overdenture?
While an overdenture can be an excellent solution for just about anyone with tooth loss, some people might benefit the most:
- You have a small palate
- You have bone loss
- You have a narrow ridge
- You have a public-facing job
If you want to find out if an implant-retained overdenture is right for you, give our Mesquite, TX dental office a call.
