Dentures and Partials

Dentures and partials are prosthetic devices designed to restore your smile and improve your oral health. Whether you're missing a few teeth or need a full set of replacement teeth, dentures and partials offer an effective solution. 

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are used when all of the teeth in a person's mouth are missing or need to be removed. These dentures consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over the gums, with prosthetic teeth attached to recreate a natural-looking smile. On the other hand, partial dentures are used when only some of the teeth need to be replaced. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a metal framework that is customized to fit snugly around existing natural teeth. Partial dentures not only restore function and aesthetics but also help prevent adjacent natural teeth from shifting out of place. 

The Process of Getting Dentures and Partials in Webster, TX

The process of getting dentures and partials can vary depending on each individual's needs. It typically involves several steps to ensure proper fit and functionality. 

First, an initial consultation with our dentist is necessary. During this visit, the dentist will examine your teeth and gums, take impressions of your mouth, and discuss your treatment options. They may also take X-rays to assess the health of your jawbone. Once the impressions are taken, they will be sent to a dental lab, where the dentures or partials will be custom-made for you. This process can take a few weeks as precise measurements need to be made. 

After the dentures or partials are created, you will have another appointment for fitting. The dentist will place them in your mouth and make any necessary adjustments for comfort and optimal fit. It's important to communicate any discomfort or issues during this stage so that adjustments can be made accordingly.

Once the perfect fit is achieved, you'll receive instructions on how to care for your new dentures or partials properly. This includes cleaning techniques and tips on maintaining good oral hygiene. 

The Benefits of Dentures and Partials

Boost Self-Confidence

One of the biggest benefits of dentures and partials is that they can restore your smile and boost your self-confidence. With these dental appliances, you no longer have to worry about missing teeth or gaps in your mouth. 

Improved Oral Functionality

Dentures and partials also improve your ability to eat and speak properly. Missing teeth can make it difficult to chew certain foods, leading to nutritional deficiencies. Additionally, pronouncing words may become challenging without a full set of teeth. Dentures and partials provide the necessary support for these basic functions. 

Facial Structure Support 

Another advantage is that dentures and partials help maintain the structure of your face. When you lose teeth, it can cause facial muscles to sag or droop, making you appear older than you actually are. With dentures or partials, you can retain a more youthful appearance. 

Prevention of Excessive Wear

Wearing dentures or partials helps distribute forces evenly across all remaining natural teeth when chewing food. This prevents excessive wear on individual teeth due to uneven pressure distribution. 

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Getting dentures or partials is a non-invasive solution compared to other tooth replacement options like implants or bridges. It requires minimally invasive techniques, if any at all, and allows for an easier adjustment period during the transition process.
