Advantages Of A Full Denture
If you are dealing with profound tooth loss for any number of reasons, a full set of new dentures may be a good solution for you. Here at Dallas Prosthodontics, our experienced team with Dr. Castellon and Dr. Buskin can help get you looking and feeling your best in no time flat. Traditional dentures are a great option for a natural looking smile to regain your youthful feeling and most of the functionality of natural teeth.
What are Full Dentures?
There are two types of dentures, full dentures, and partial dentures. When a patient is missing all or most of their teeth, we often recommend they get a full denture. These replace all of the missing teeth in your jaw, including upper, lower, or both. If you have a few left, we can extract them or make you overdentures which can cover those remaining teeth. It all depends on what we feel is the best in your individual circumstances, as no two cases are exactly alike.
Benefits of Full Dentures
Full dentures offer their users a range of advantages over just sticking with their missing teeth. First and foremost, we can give our patients back the functionality of their mouth. Patients can speak and eat almost as well as they could before the tooth loss occurred! This can improve their overall health as it can widen what they can eat, and can improve speech impediments that may have developed over time. Missing teeth can also be a cosmetic disadvantage. However, dentures give your face a fuller and younger appearance, while also offering you a smile that you can be proud of rather than one you feel the need to hide.
If you have remaining teeth, these can also be of service to you, even if you decide that you do not want to have them pulled. Overdentures can protect the teeth that you do have from experiencing excessive wear over time, which can happen if not taken care of. This means that those teeth last longer and can even help to improve the nature of your dentures, ensuring that they remain stable and secure. This also means that your jaw could stay healthier since those teeth’s roots are still stimulating the bone to continue growing.
Finally, traditional full dentures can be a removable option, meaning that they can be easily extracted for care and cleaning. This is an important aspect, as dentures require a strict care regimen. They last a lot longer if properly cared for.
