Dentures are used as a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are custom-made, they are removable and can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While they may take some getting used to and don’t feel exactly the same as natural teeth, modern-day dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than they have ever been before.  The Seminole Dental  in Texas City is conveniently located near MS Doss City Park and Seminole Hospital District is a low cost dental office by me.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used when a tooth or teeth need to be replaced but the remaining natural teeth are not strong enough or able to support other tooth replacement structures, like a bridge, or there is not enough bone for implants. Partial dentures are fitted to the gum and not impacted by the teeth around them.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are used to replace all teeth and are fitted over the gums. Implant supported (All-On-4) dentures are a type of dentures that are fitted and anchored with dental implants. These implants are permanent and fixed into your jawbone. The implant supported denture (All-On-4) is then attached to that implant. The advantage of implants in All-On-4 dentures is that they allow the denture to be very firm and strong. They are not removable and allow you to function almost as if you have your natural teeth. The dentures on All-On-4 is a very economical way to have a lot of teeth firmly anchored to the bone using only four implants.

What are the benefits and uses of dentures?

In addition to providing a replacement for missing teeth, dentures will help improve your appearance and your smile. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag over time making you appear older than you are. As a practical replacement for teeth, dentures help you to eat and speak more comfortably. Dentures also allow you to chew foods normally which means you can maintain a proper, healthy and nutritious diet.
