For a Smile That Looks and Feels Natural

When having one or missing teeth affects your daily life and willingness to smile, it’s time to think about the benefits of having strong and natural looking teeth with dentures! Dental trauma, disease, decay, and even age can result in losing teeth while they’re still needed, affecting all of your regular eating and speaking habits. Now available as fixed or removable devices, dentures have become highly advanced to look, feel, and function just like regular healthy teeth.

 

Modern Dentures

Advanced modern technology has allowed us to create dentures that can fit seamlessly into a patient’s smile, without slipping or or resting uncomfortably. Partial dentures, also known as removable dental bridges, can fit over dental implants or attach to a pink or gum-colored plastic base. They are most popularly used to replace one or more missing teeth and keep remaining teeth from changing position. Complete dentures can replace a whole set of teeth when any remaining teeth have been removed. They can be conventional, ready for placement after about 8 to 12 weeks after any remaining teeth have been removed, or immediate, which are made in advance and can allow placement upon removal.

Results of Missing Teeth if Left Untreated:

  • Remaining teeth may shift or move, changing your bite
  • Biting, Chewing, Speaking, and even cleaning teeth may become difficult
  • Uneven pressure is placed on remaining teeth
  • Uneven pressure is placed on remaining teeth
  • Risks for gum disease and decay increase
  • Face shape may change and face may sag or look aged

Before the Procedure


Many of our patients who seek the benefits of dentures are very curious about how dentures have advanced in recent years. That is why our team at Third Coast Family Dental is excited to share all of your denture options upon an assessment of your dental health. Before we begin making a customized denture for your ideal smile, we’ll discuss your medical history to decide if dentures are the right treatment for you. We’ll take an X-ray to assess your readiness for dental implants in further detail, and form an impression of your teeth to serve as a mold for your custom new smile. If you can’t wait for the way your ideal smile will improve your life, let us help you by calling our office and making your appointment one that will change your life!

After the Procedure


While Dr. Blair uses her skill and expertise to have your dentures fit smoothly and feel natural, it might take some time to adjust to the feel of your new and improved smile. When you eat, chew slowly and allow yourself to get used to how your dentures feel in your mouth by first introducing soft foods. If you have removable dentures, the muscles in your cheeks and gums will adjust to make the denture fit more comfortably over time. Especially if it’s been awhile since you’ve spoken with a full set of teeth, practice speaking or reading out loud to get used to your new teeth.
