If you have lost most of your teeth and are afraid to smile, there are procedures to restore what you have lost and get you happy and confident once more. The most common procedure are traditional dentures. Contact Avery Ranch Dental in Austin, Texas for more information about how to restore your smile.
Dentures are a form of cosmetic dentistry which uses temporary false teeth that cement or clip into your mouth to fill the gaps left by missing teeth. These can look very natural and help you to restore the beauty of your natural smile. They can be used to replace just one or two teeth, but more commonly are used to replace all of the teeth in your mouth.
There are several kinds of removable dentures used in cosmetic dentistry. First is the conventional denture, which is placed into your mouth after the removal of all of your teeth. This process requires new teeth to be sculpted to fit your mouth perfectly and can take a few months to complete.
The second form of removable denture is the intermediate denture. These are given to you immediately upon removal of your teeth to be worn while your conventional dentures are made. They help you to get through the healing period without the need to experience a period without teeth!
Overdentures are another form of removable replacement teeth. These are designed to replace your teeth when there are a few teeth that can be saved to act as supports for the dentures and tend to be a bit more stable than full dentures. One drawback of conventional dentures is that lower conventional dentures that can get dislodged easily by the tongue. Implants can be used as supports for overdentures making them extremely stable.
Dentures, first of all, can be a cost-effective way of replacing missing teeth. While they are not nearly as sturdy or permanent as dental implants, many people still use them due to the economic factors involved. They can also be an intermediate solution while you pursue permanent implants.
When you wear dentures, you will need to be careful about what you eat and how you care for your teeth. Since they are not permanent replacements, one of our dentists may give you information about which foods to avoid and how to wear and care for them. Please follow these instructions carefully, as we care about your comfort and smile!
