Unlike sharks, humans can’t simply regrow their adult teeth when they lose them. There are so many ways for a tooth to become damaged and need removal. If you are missing more than just one or two teeth, you are likely a great candidate for a partial or full set. Today’s modern dentures are sleek, easy to use, and offer far greater comfort and natural appearance.
Your Options from Lovett Dental Humble
With multiple types of dentures to choose from, you’ve got plenty of options here at Lovett Dental. We provide all the following services and more. Schedule an appointment today at Lovett Dental Humble to discuss your particular preferences.
If you have no natural teeth left or only a few, you will likely choose a full traditional set of dentures. Dentists will take careful molds of your gum line and jaw ridges to create plates that fit firmly yet comfortably in your mouth. These dentures offer a strong bite ability when you use them with a dental adhesive and are easy to remove at the end of the day to clean.
For patients missing only a few teeth, especially all in one area, partial dentures are a great choice for filling in the gap. We can match the new teeth to your existing smile’s color and shape so they blend in naturally from the start. These partial dentures are easy to remove whenever you need to clean them or brush your teeth. They still improve your speech and help you bite and chew foods, despite being affordable and quick to manufacture.
Dental Implant Supported
For the most advanced pair of dentures, combine dental implants with them. Dental implants create anchor points for the dentures that connect all the way to the jaw. Your dentures won’t shift or give during a bite despite a complete lack of dental adhesives. If you are tired of dealing with denture pastes and creams, consider upgrading to a dental implant-supported system.
Who Can Benefit the Most from Dentures?
With so many advanced dental treatments to choose from, it can be hard to decide between dentures, implants, and other options. The populations most likely to benefit from dentures in particular include:
- Anyone missing between 20% and 100% of their teeth
- Children and teens who have lost some of their permanent teeth but need to wait for their jaws to develop to consider dental implants
- Patients who experienced advanced periodontitis or cancer of the jaw, which can degrade the bone tissue so much it can’t support implants
- People who are interested in dental implants but need to save up the money and want a temporary solution while they wait
- The Benefits of Getting Custom Fitted Dentures
It is possible to find pre-formed dentures that claim to offer a universal fit. But just like your fingerprint, your mouth’s shape is completely unique. Any universal dental device has the potential to cause discomfort and damage to your gums. Custom fitted dentures can improve your life in many ways, including:
- Less discomfort
- Protection for the rest of your teeth
- Reduced shifting
- Easier eating
- Clearer speech
