Modern improvements in denture technology have made large or unnatural-looking dentures a thing of the past. At Dentist Near Me, we strive to fit you with dentures that match your mouth and existing natural teeth. As a denture specialist, our doctor has the knowledge, skill, and experience to ensure that your dentures appear natural, fit securely in your mouth, and provide you with the functionality you need to enjoy your life to the fullest.
What are Implant Dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who are seeking an affordable option to significantly improve their ability to chew, smile, and quality of life. The implant denture will allow for more room in the mouth with a less bulky arch, allowing you to taste food better. They also do not require adhesive because they are firmly rooted in the jaw.
Our dentures patients can improve their diet by including healthy foods such as fruits, veggies, meats, and other foods you would have to avoid with traditional dentures. Implant-supported dentures will also significantly improve our patients’ confidence to smile and speak.
These dentures are removable, and you’ll be able to snap them on and off whenever needed. This makes cleaning and maintaining your denture just as easy as a traditional denture.
Advantages of Implant-Supported Dentures in El Paso
If you’re finding chewing food difficult because of missing teeth, you might be considering getting a denture. But did you know that regular dentures aren’t the only option available to you? Implant-supported dentures offer a different solution to your oral health problem, and it’s important to weigh your choices carefully before settling on your dental treatment.
Aside from the fact that implant-supported dentures are stronger and allow more room in your mouth for your tongue and gums, they also stimulate your jawbone, which prevents it from shrinking. As regular dentures aren’t connected to the jawbone at all, the bones lose their strength without the bio-compatible titanium implant bonding to your jaw bone stimulating growth.
This will result in a receding jaw bone over time. As the shape of your jaw changes with this reduction, your regular dentures will also have to be adjusted to fit this new change in your mouth. Not only is this inconvenient, but it also takes a psychological toll as your changing jawlines will have an effect on your facial appearance.
With implant-supported dentures, you won’t have to worry about your facial structure or smile changing in a noticeable way. You also won’t have to worry about them falling out and causing embarrassment, or slipping while you eat your favorite meal. Since they’re a permanent fixture in your mouth, they are more difficult to lose or break.
Sometimes dental conditions, such as tooth decay, gum disease, or severe trauma can be unmanageable. You may have to come to the conclusion that you need to remove your remaining teeth on one or both arches. Full dentures are a long-lasting, economical, and efficient way to restore your chewing capability and smile.
A complete denture consists of a thin gum-colored acrylic base that rests on the gum tissue. Porcelain or acrylic replacement teeth built into the base give the appearance of natural teeth. We know that your smile is unique, and Dr. Elise Newsome has the experience to help you select the teeth that will look the most natural. This also gives you the option to customize the way you look; whether you want a “new” smile, or want to recreate the one you had.
While dentures boast a long history of successful use, modern technology offers some options to enhance the way dentures fit and the way you look. In many cases, dentures can be secured more firmly to your jaw with the use of dental implants, placed in the jaw. In addition to having greater retention and a more natural look, implant-supported dentures tend to last longer. Our doctor will discuss these options and help you understand the ways they can improve your experience with dentures.
Whether you’ve lost one tooth or many teeth, chewing and smiling can become more difficult because of embarrassing gaps in your smile. Partial dentures are an affordable solution to replace missing teeth, fill in the missing spaces, improve your chewing ability, and restore your confidence to smile in public. A partial denture will also help keep your natural remaining teeth from shifting, lowering the risk of losing those teeth in the future.
Most partial dentures contain a thin metal framework that is designed with small metal clasps that wrap around the gum line of existing teeth. This allows for a smooth, non-bulky feel. The framework is supported by your natural teeth to provide a reliable, secure appliance that is easy to use and remove. Where teeth are missing, natural-looking replacement teeth are attached, and gum-colored acrylic is used to cover the metal framework. Remember your mouth and your needs are unique, and Dr. Elise Newsome works with skilled technicians to create a solution that is functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.
With advances in technology, implants can also be used to support removable partial dentures, improving the fit while reducing the bulkiness of the appliance. Dentures inherently bring some challenges, especially to new wearers. Our goal is to minimize the everyday frustrations and keep you as comfortable as possible.
