Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health.
When you lose all of your teeth, facial muscles can sag and bone is lost, which can make you look much older. Dentures can help improve the appearance of your face and profile. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth and often improve your smile.
Dentures can be broadly divided into two categories: partial and complete. Partial dentures are used for patients who still retain some of their own teeth. Your natural teeth will help to hold the dentures in place and make them more secure. The dentures will help keep your remaining teeth from shifting. Complete dentures are used for patients who have lost all their natural teeth. Some complete dentures are used in combination with dental implants: the implants help stabilize your dentures and keep them from slipping around in your mouth. With new technology and current materials, we can provide you with a custom-denture that is more comfortable and secure in your mouth.
When you visit our Austin office, we guarantee that we’ll be with you every step of the way. We know that making the adjustment to dentures can be a frightening and stressful time. Once you’ve gotten used to them, you’ll still need adjustments and checkups from time to time to make sure they still feel comfortable and natural in your mouth. Our experienced staff will help you learn how to care for your dentures so they can last as long as possible. Feel free to give us a call with any questions you may have about your dentures.
