Dentures

Dentures are removable, artificial teeth that restore your ability to eat properly, as well as support your facial structure and improve your speech. Sometimes patients lose all or most of their teeth due to decay, gum disease or accident. In these cases, Southern Dental in Houston can expertly fit you with complete or partial dentures to give you a beautiful smile again.

Temporary—complete or partial—dentures typically made from acrylic are useful for patients who have either lost or will lose teeth to gum disease or other problems. These keep patients from going toothless during the healing process or while more-permanent dentures are being made. Southern Dental provides up to six months of follow-up care for temporary dentures, which includes all necessary adjustments for proper fit and comfort.

Partials made with a cast metal framework for strength are best for patients who are missing several teeth, but whose remaining teeth are healthy and solid in the bone. Flexible partials made from a flexible nylon-type material are permanent partials that are considered more cosmetic because no metal is used and more comfortable because of increased flexibility.

Complete dentures are for people who are missing all of their natural teeth. Southern Dental offers the more affordable standard dentures, as well as the premium dentures that provide the highest quality in appearance and comfort. A second feature of premium dentures is the inclusion of a back-up denture which is incorporated in the fee.

Implant-supported dentures are another excellent solution for the patient who desires a more natural chewing experience. These dentures are attached to a dental implant which provides a much higher level of retention in the mouth.

A denture is a dental gear that is used to replace missing teeth and gums. The dentures can be removed and can also be complete or partial depending on the number of teeth that need replacement. The dentures are made to restore functionality and aesthetics to your smile by making them look as close as your natural teeth.

Partial and complete dentures are the two types of dentures available to return the beauty to your smile. Partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth and avoid that the surrounding teeth start shifting due to the space left by the missing tooth. Complete dentures are needed when all your teeth are missing to restore your ability to eat, speak, etc. Dentures are made with materials that make them light, durable and easy to adjust to while still giving you complete functionality and support. Dentures can last for many years, but because of wear and other changes in your mouth, they may have to be adjusted or remade to maintain the best fit.

You may need a denture if you have lost all or several teeth, it can also help enhance your smile and support facial tissues which will improve chewing and speech abilities.

What is the process of getting a denture?

To get a denture it requires several appointments with your dentist to ensure your device is best fitted to you. First, molds or impressions have to be made to take very accurate measurements in order to provide you with a custom-made denture. Once the fit, shape and color of the denture have been best matched to fit your smile, you will have full functionality and a beautiful smile.

During the adjustment period, you might experience some symptoms like soreness, increased salivation, and difficulty speaking or chewing until your mouth and muscles can get accustomed to your new dentures.

Your dentist will give you care instructions to best treat your new dentures as well as the hygiene habits you need in order to preserve your dentures and have good oral health. Proper cleaning of your dentures is essential to prevent an infection or other issues, and regular visits to your dentist will ensure that the treatment is working for you.
