New innovations in dentistry allow us to preserve your natural teeth for longer than ever. Unfortunately, despite these advancements, tooth loss is still a common problem. Every tooth is vital to your oral health and your ability to perform simple tasks, like chewing and speaking. Not to mention, an incomplete smile can be devastating to your self-esteem. At Chisholm Trail Dental Health, we can rebuild a beautiful, full smile with partials and dentures in Round Rock.
Every tooth is vital to your oral and general health. The more teeth you lose, the more both are compromised. When a tooth is lost, you not only lose the crown but the root as well. As a result, your jawbone is no longer stimulated. This causes it to deteriorate, making any remaining natural teeth lose support. Over time, they become loose and fall out.
The more teeth that are lost, the more difficult it is to maintain a balanced diet. This can lead to nutritional deficiencies that can hurt your overall well-being. Besides changes to your oral and general health, you will also see changes to your facial structures. They lose support, causing you to appear older because of premature wrinkling and sagging of your skin.
Let’s face it, traditional partials and dentures have a bad reputation for looking and feeling fake, but your dentist in Round Rock uses the latest technologies in dentistry. This allows your prosthetics to look and feel more realistic. We create the customized prosthetic you need to rebuild a complete smile. Depending on the number of teeth you are missing, you may need:
A partial denture is used to replace several missing teeth. We take an impression of your mouth to carefully craft your prosthetic teeth to match the appearance of your natural ones. This makes them blend in seamlessly with your smile, so no one will know they are not your own. The prosthetics are attached to a gum-colored base that features a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place.
An entire arch of missing teeth is replaced with a full denture. An impression of your mouth is used to create an acrylic base to hold your all-ceramic teeth. Suction or an adhesive is used to secure the denture to your gum tissue. Now, they offer an improved fit to reduce any slipping or irritation.
As an alternative to a traditional partial or denture, you can anchor your new teeth in place using dental implants. We can discuss how they work during your initial consultation.
