Dentist in Deer Park, TX - TexSmiles Dental
When a tooth is pulled, the bone and gum tissue change form and shrink. A denture is designed to replace all of the missing teeth, bone, and gum tissue in the upper and/or lower jaws. There are denture to replace a few teeth or all of the teeth in the jaw.
These are designed to use the remaining teeth in the mouth to support a removable denture that replaces the missing teeth, bone, and gum tissue. There are several different types, including new, flexible, partial dentures that are designed to feel and look more natural. If you have worn a partial denture for many years that has become loose, please ask us about implants to help improve your denture-wearing experience.
These are designed to replace all of your missing teeth. If you have been told that you may need full dentures or if you have been wearing them for many years and are dissatisfied, please ask for a consult. Many times, problems with your dentures coming loose or becoming uncomfortable throughout the day can be improved! We always recommend considering implants to help keep your lower denture in place and to improve your ability to eat and speak. Many times, the upper denture can be managed effectively without implants.
