Dentures are often recommended for anyone who is missing one or multiple teeth. Your Houston, TX dentist may recommend complete or partial dentures if you are interested in restoring your teeth.
Partial dentures are an excellent option for people who have natural teeth remaining. Partial dentures help prevent your existing teeth from shifting, which often happens if there are gaps in your smile.
By contrast, complete dentures are applicable when all the teeth are missing within the upper or lower jaw and need to be replaced with dental prosthetics. At Bear Creek Dentistry, we construct full dentures when there are no teeth available.
How Do Dentures Benefit Me?
Dentures improve biting, eating, and speech. They also support your facial muscles and contours, preventing facial sagging or aging that can happen when teeth are missing and no longer support the sides of your face.
Dentures are custom-fabricated to blend in with your natural teeth so that few people will even notice a change in your appearance. They play a pivotal role in your smile by filling out your face.
Even with proper care and maintenance, dentures will need to be replaced every 5-8 years due to normal wear and tear. If your dentures start to feel loose, do not try to fix the issue yourself. Only a trained dental professional can reline, refit, or replace dentures.
