What are Dentures?
Dentures are custom tooth replacement solutions that resemble your teeth and gums. We use full dentures to replace an entire set of teeth in an arch, while partial dentures are ideal for when you have a few teeth remaining. They function just like real teeth and allow you to chew food and speak properly.
Dentures enhance the appeal of your smile by filling gaps that result from missing teeth and they prevent shifting. Besides restoring function, dentures help support your facial muscles and maintain a youthful appearance.
Different Types of Dentures
Dentures come in various types, and the ideal denture for you is the one that fits your specific oral health needs. Below are the different types of dentures we offer in Houston:
Complete Dentures: Complete dentures can restore function and give you back a confident smile. We use complete dentures when you are missing a full set of teeth on your upper or lower jaw.
Partial Dentures: Partial dentures consist of a pink base that resembles the gum, with a clasp that fits around neighboring teeth to support the prosthetic. We use partial dentures to replace missing teeth when you have some natural teeth remaining.
Fixed Dentures: Fixed dentures refer to permanent dentures that are usually attached to dental implants. You don't have to remove fixed dentures for cleaning, and you take care of them just like natural teeth.
Overdentures: By securing your custom prosthetic with dental implants, overdentures can be snapped in place for added stability and comfort.
With our Houston denture solutions, you don't have to worry about choosing the right tooth replacement. Our team will take you through all the available options and discuss the pros and cons of each. We provide all the details you need to make an informed, confident choice.
The Process for Getting Removable Dentures
When you visit us for dentures, you will first undergo a complete evaluation. Dr. Attar will inspect for issues like tooth decay and gum diseases. We will treat these problems first before placing the dentures. After your assessment, our team will take accurate impressions and send them to the lab for fabrication.
Once ready, we expertly fit the dentures. If the dentures don't fit perfectly, we make any adjustments to ensure your comfort. The process is similar for implant-supported dentures, except the implants are surgically placed, and there is a healing period before attaching the denture.
Gentle Extractions and Gum Disease Treatment
Upon your visit to AmeriCare Dental, we first examine your gum and bone health to establish whether you need pre-treatment before your denture placement. In some cases, you may need one or several extractions of severely damaged teeth to prevent complications.
Even if you are missing some or all of your teeth, you are still vulnerable to gum disease. The best way to fight gum disease when you wear dentures is to maintain excellent oral hygiene. Make sure you brush your gums and dentures regularly to keep them as clean as possible. Visit our dentist for your scheduled appointments so we can check for any early signs of gum disease and recommend treatments if needed.
Care Instructions for Your Removable Dentures
To maintain your oral health, your dentures need diligent care. Below are instructions on how to properly take care of your removable dentures.
- Always remove dentures and rinse with clean water after eating
- Brush your gums before wearing dentures
- Brush your dentures daily with a soft brush, including the underside
- Never use toothpaste to brush dentures; instead, use mild denture cleaner
- Soak dentures overnight in clean water or a special denture cleaning solution
- Never place your dentures in hot water as it may cause them to change shape
Our dentist will provide professional advice and tips for maintaining the longevity of your dentures.
