An Affordable Option for Replacing Missing Teeth: Modern Dentures
Losing teeth not only impacts your smile but also affects your confidence and quality of life. That’s why it’s critical to replace lost teeth quickly. Dentures offer an affordable means of restoring your smile if you’ve lost multiple or all your teeth due to dental disease. At 4405 Dental Studio in Georgetown, Texas, we can customize your dentures to look, feel, and function like your natural teeth.
The Denture Process
Unlike implant treatment which takes months to complete, traditional removable dentures can be created relatively quickly and require no surgery. Today’s dentures are made of a moldable, flexible acrylic material that can be fashioned to look and function like natural teeth. Dr. Andrew Edmonds will take impressions and measurements of your jaw and mouth to have your dentures tailor-made in size and shape for your personal use. Dentures can restore your ability to eat, speak, and laugh easily, so you can live the lifestyle you enjoy most.
Dental Replacement Options
Dentures can be used to replace several teeth or all of your teeth to suit your dental needs.
- Complete dentures are designed to replace all your teeth. They consist of an acrylic base that closely resembles real gum tissue and acrylic teeth that function like natural teeth. Your dentures can be fashioned to mimic your old smile or create a brand-new smile that’s just as pleasing. Traditional dentures are held in place during the day with a dental adhesive and removed at night for cleaning.
- Partial dentures offer a cost-effective replacement of multiple lost teeth to facilitate eating and restore your smile. Partial dentures also help maintain the alignment of natural teeth by keeping them from shifting.
- Implant-supported dentures offer greater security and stability for partial and complete denture treatment. These dentures won’t accidentally slip or shift when in use, so you can eat, smile, and laugh without worrying about the state of your teeth.
