Dentures

Tired of Missing Teeth?

What are Dentures?

Dentures are oral appliances used to replace multiple missing teeth. If you are missing some or all of your teeth, dentures might be just what you need to restore your smile’s function, beauty, and health. There are two kinds of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

  • A complete (or full), implant-supported denture is used to replace all of the teeth in a full dental arch. We may suggest a complete denture to replace all of the teeth in one or both arches depending on your individual needs. Dr. Rahimi-Thornton may suggest using a denture adhesive for improved stability.
  • A partial denture is a removable denture and is used if you are missing multiple teeth but have natural teeth remaining. A partial denture often includes a thin framework or clasps that attach to the natural teeth for a secure fit.

What are the Advantages of Wearing Dentures?

Dentures not only function as supreme dental restorations but also work in stabilizing your facial posture by supporting the structures around the cheeks and lips. The best part about having dentures is that you needn’t compromise on the food you love to eat. They also easily help resolve and replace teeth that may have been causing pain and other oral health issues.

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

Usually, when you lose a tooth, it is best for your oral health to replace it. Missing teeth can affect your “bite” as well as your ability to speak and chew. Their loss can increase the burden on your remaining teeth and can cause muscle pain in your jaws and headaches. And, of course, losing a tooth can affect your appearance. Some of the benefits include:

  • Improved confidence
  • Stability during eating
  • Bone and gum preservation
  • Improved dental hygiene
  • Superior esthetics
  • Nutritional benefits

Dentures in Bryan-College Station

Dentures are not only for the aged anymore. People of all ages and walks of life, who have lost their teeth due to injury or disease, have opted for dentures or partials to restore their biting surface and smile. With proper care, your dentures will last for many years, though you should return to your prosthodontist at least once a year to have their fit evaluated and adjusted. Your mouth may change shape gradually over the years, causing your dentures to feel loose or insecure if you do not have them refitted.
