What Happens When I Need Dentures? | Houston, TX

Do you need dentures?

Dentures have been the most popular method to replace missing teeth for many decades. But not all dentures are the same. If you want a pair of dentures which provide a good fit and don’t fall out at inopportune times than you probably don’t want to trust some fly-by-night dentures clinic or online service.

If you want premium and natural-looking dentures, dentures which can restore your ability to chew your favorite foods without hassle, dentures which won’t impede your speech, and dentures which can restore smile, then you want dentures from the Antoine Dental Center in Houston, TX.

In today’s post of our dental health blog we’re going to take a more in-depth look at dentures. We’re proud to offer premium fall dentures to replace your entire smile, and premium partial dentures to fill any gaps in your smile. Our dentures are expertly planned and designed to ensure a comfortable fit.

But what can you expect if you need dentures? Read on to find out!

When Do I Need Full Dentures?

Full dentures are used to replace an entire arch of your teeth or both arches of your teeth. But even if you’re not missing all of your teeth, you may still benefit from having your remaining teeth removed to make room for full dentures. We may recommend having your remain teeth extracted if you have very few remaining teeth, or your remaining teeth are in poor condition.

We can painlessly extract any remaining teeth with comfortable sedation dentistry services. We will also ensure that health of your mouth and remove any lingering decay or diseases. A healthy mouth and gums help ensure the best fitting dentures. We will then plan your customized dentures using digital X-rays.

Premium full dentures vary a bit depending on which kind of dentures you and your dentist decide are best for your smile. But all of our premium dentures use natural and realistic looking teeth set inside of beautiful, lifelike artificial gums. Once your premium dentures are prepared, we’ll have you back in the office for a fitting appointment to ensure the perfect fit.

We can also help you during the entire lifespan of your dentures. Your mouth will adjust and shrink somewhat over time, so we can help by adjusting your dentures and performing re-fittings. You may eventually need new dentures as your mouth and jaw continues to shrink.

When Do I Need Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are the same basic concept as our premium full dentures – one or several adjacent artificial teeth held in place with natural-looking artificial gums. Partial dentures are a long-lasting alternative to other restorative dentistry procedures if you are missing several teeth in a row. We can secure your partial dentures with a metal brace or with dental implants.

How Do I Take Care of My Dentures?

Dentures can last for many years as long as you take care of them. Our premium dentures are strong and stain-resistant, but still require some care just like your natural teeth would. Your dentist will give you more specific instructions, but generally you’ll need to brush your dentures and clean and soak them overnight. We can also help you if your dentures ever need to be repaired or replaced.
