Need dentures? Patients often contact our respected Admire Dental office in Haltom City, TX because they have questions about dentures. Our restorative dentist can answer any concerns you may have regarding the process of obtaining dentures and the care they require. At Admire Dental, we offer both fixed dentures and denture stabilization as well.
At Admire Dental, our staff is very familiar with a procedure called Denture Stabilization. This method removes many problems related to tooth loss and denture wearing. Stabilizing or implant-supported dentures is one of the best-known procedures available to patients who are missing teeth because they appear natural and act like your regular teeth. Standard dentures sit on your gums and can slip, cause a sore or fall out if you’re not careful. Implant-supported dentures replace the root and body of the tooth. They are required when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone structure to support an implant. This implant consists of two parts: a titanium fastener that is surgically implanted into the jaw and a porcelain crown that lies on top to replace the missing tooth. If you are missing several teeth, you don’t have to get an implant inserted for every tooth. Instead, the dentist at Admire Dental can replace multiple teeth with just a combination of pegs using implant-supported partial or complete dentures. Implant-supported dentures replace your missing teeth, avoid bone loss that happens after a tooth has been missing for some time, prevents the need to shave down any existing teeth for the use of a bridge, and offers patients the assurance of having real teeth that allow them the ability to enjoy any and all foods.
How Do I Know If I’m Eligible for Dental Implants?
The doctor at Admire Dental will take into consideration your overall medical health, whether your gums are healthy, if you are experiencing significant bone loss, your age and your desire to eat, speak and chew your food normally.
Dental implants fasten the replacement teeth directly to your jawbone. Comparable to your natural tooth’s root, they sit under the gum line and consequently are not seen in the mouth. Only you can see the fixed denture. They are reliable and very dependable. Fixed dentures are cemented to the implants and cannot be removed by you. You will not have to experience anything touching the roof of your mouth or have metal going over your gums with a fixed bridge. The teeth “emerge” from the gums and are not plastic like dentures.
