Dentures In Pasadena, TX
Patients who are missing some or all of their teeth may choose to wear dentures, also referred to as false teeth. These custom-made prosthetic teeth are easy to remove and place back in the mouth. Because some people have trouble adjusting to the unnatural feel, they don’t like to wear dentures. Sometimes it takes quite a while to get used to new dentures, some folks never adjust. Fortunately, modern technology has made newer dentures much more comfortable to wear and more natural in appearance.
Teeth are important for proper mouth function and for aesthetic purposes. Missing teeth can make you look older than your years due to lack of support in the face causing sagging muscles, and impaired speech. A new pair of replacement teeth can improve your appearance, mouth function and overall quality of life.
Dentures from Town Square Dental
At Town Square Dental, we offer full dentures and partial dentures. Our dentist will help you choose the option for you depending on how many teeth need to be replaced and what price range you can afford.
Full dentures have an acrylic base that covers the gums. The upper denture clings to the roof of the mouth and the bottom piece is horseshoe-shaped to allow tongue space. Both flesh-coloredpieces blend in with the gums.
Traditional full dentures are only put in place after any remaining teeth have been extracted and tissues have completely healed. During the healing time,an immediate full denture is inserted after teeth removal. This temporary placeholder is used while you wait for your permanent set to be completed.
Partial dentures are connected to a metal framework that gets attached to your remaining teeth. Porcelain crowns are often used as anchors on a few natural teeth to support the denture. Partial dentures are essentially dental bridges that can be removed from the mouth.
