If you’re missing one or more teeth, you already know that your smile’s appearance is affected by these gaps. But not replacing your lost teeth can have more a significant impact than just looks. Your remaining healthy teeth could shift, changing your bite and potentially leading to further tooth loss. It’s important to address your missing teeth and restore your smile. Luckily, there is a solution that has been effective for hundreds of years—dentures. We at Dental Care Today of Richardson can provide the care and treatment you need to get your confidence back, even if you’ve had extensive tooth loss.
Although dentures have been around for a long time, dentures nowadays are more advanced than ever before. They are composed of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored plastic base. The craftsmanship and materials used mean that your dentures will look surprisingly lifelike and fit perfectly and comfortably in your mouth. Because they are removeable, your dentures are also easy to care for and keep clean.
At Dental Care Today of Richardson, we offer three kinds of dentures.
For those who still have natural teeth, a partial denture fits snuggly between and attaches to your remaining healthy teeth to fill in the gaps in your smile.
To replace the entire arch of teeth, full dentures are molded to the contours of the gum line creating suction that holds the tooth replacement prosthetic in place.
For added support, we may recommend dental implant-retained dentures. This option provides more security and promotes better long-term oral health. As a result, you won’t have to worry about your dentures slipping or coming loose when you eat or speak.
As a popular tooth restoration option, dentures have many advantages, including the following:
The cost of dentures varies case by case. It depends on a lot of different factors, such as how many teeth need to be replaced. At your consultation with Dr. Nguyen, we will review the cost for your specific case, work with you to maximize your insurance benefits, and make treatment affordable for any budget.
Our team at Dental Care Today of Richardson is dedicated to helping you have a happy, healthy smile, even if that means replacing all your teeth. We want you to have teeth that allow you to bite, chew, speak, laugh, and smile with complete confidence. Schedule your consultation with us today to see what we can do for you!
