Benefits of Dentures & Partials
Dentures can not only improve your appearance and make you feel more confident; they can also improve the functionality of your smile. When teeth are missing, speaking and chewing issues become more common, bone loss begins to occur, and teeth may also begin to shift. Dentures can improve these problems and give the face a more youthful appearance.
Types of Dentures in Katy, TX
Every patient has a different oral health history and ultimate treatment goals, and for this reason, we offer multiple options for your dentures. These include:
– For patients missing an entire row of teeth or that need to have all their teeth removed, we recommend a complete denture. A complete denture can replace an entire arch of teeth and provide support for improved chewing and speaking ability.
Implant Supported Dentures
– For patients that are looking for a more permanent and stable solution for their missing teeth, an implant-supported denture can be a great option. Small titanium posts will be surgically attached to the jawbone, providing support for the denture to be attached. This removes the worry of your dental appliance coming loose or the need for adhesives.
– So that our patients are never without teeth, we offer immediate dentures which can be placed the day of your appointment and can be worn until your final dentures have been created.
– For patients that aren’t missing entire rows of teeth and still have healthy teeth present, a partial denture can be the perfect treatment option. Prosthetic teeth will be fixed to a base which will blend with the gums; this base will attach to adjacent natural teeth providing support.
