Losing one or two teeth means you probably need a bridge or maybe a single tooth dental implant. But what if you lose a majority of your teeth? Instead of living with the difficulties of tooth loss, your El Paso, TX, dentists may instead suggest replacement with a custom denture. We have full and partial option for people missing several of their natural teeth!
Crafting Your Prosthetics
We want to make sure your new teeth fit comfortably and offer dependable and durable tooth replacement. We begin by taking detailed impressions, images, and measurements of your jaw, remaining teeth, and oral structures. We use the information we gather to help design and craft your dental prosthetic. Each denture will contain a base made from acrylic and designed to mimic the appearance of gum tissue. The new teeth will be created from strong materials like ceramic, which can absorb bite forces and also be shaded to match the color of surrounding teeth. This material is also translucent like tooth enamel and contains stain-resistant properties. The full will address every tooth on one or both of your arches and be held in place with natural suction. The partial will be held in place with metal clasps attached to natural teeth, addressing gaps throughout your smile that are not severe enough for a full denture. Both can last for 5 to 10 years, requiring replacement as the jaw ridge changes shape and impacts the fit.
Preserving Your Smile and Remaining Natural Teeth
We will provide detailed instructions for cleaning and soaking your dentures to help keep them strong and dependable. If you have remaining natural teeth, then we can discuss positive changes to your daily oral healthcare routine to help protect them from gum disease and other factors that could lead to tooth loss. Regular visits for checkups and cleanings, along with daily brushing and flossing, can help preserve your smile and keep your remaining teeth strong.
Don’t Ignore Tooth Loss!
Remember, when you lose a number of your tooth, this could force you to subsist on soft food only, depriving you of your favorite foods and essential nutrients. You may also have trouble speaking clearly as well. For some, the remaining teeth could drift from position and lead to misalignment. Poor alignment not only impacts smile esthetics, but increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease as well. Don’t ignore your missing teeth, talk to our team about possible solutions.
