When you lose all of your teeth, or at least the vast majority, then you need a prosthetic to restore balance, health, and beauty. In today’s blog, your Garland, TX, dentist will explain how we approach creating a customized set of dentures, a set that will be custom-fitted for your smile and offer a lifelike appearance.
The Impact of Total Tooth Loss
When you lost most or all of your teeth, this could cause serious problems for your quality of life. Speaking clearly is difficult, and you may feel embarrassed, which impacts your social life in a negative fashion. You will be forced to rely only on soft foods, depriving you of not only your favorite meals, but also essential nutrients and vitamins. Since the body deprives the jawbone around missing teeth of doses of calcium and phosphates, the bone tissue breaks down and a prematurely aged appearance could follow.
Crafting Dentures That Look and Fit Naturally
We want to restore your smile, so you smile and eat with ease. We also want to ensure a proper fit, balanced bite, and good oral health. To do so, we start by taking detailed digital images and impressions of your smile. We use the images in a dental lab setting to design and craft a prosthetic that fits comfortably and reflects your facial structure. The prosthetic will consist of an acrylic base that looks like gum tissue, as well as a full row of teeth crafted from lifelike and durable materials. Suction will hold the lower arch in place, and upper arch ones may need special adhesives. They last about 5 to 10 years on average, and will need to be removed for cleaning and soaking.
Support with Implant Dentistry
However, if support them with multiple dental implants, this means a fixed denture that doesn’t need to be removed for maintenance. In addition, it will never slip when you eat or speak. The dental implants will be accepted by the body as natural roots, which means they stimulate the growth of jawbone tissue and prevent an aged appearance. As a result, your dentures could stay in place for decades at a time, or possibly even a lifetime.
