Do you love your smile? If not, is it because you are missing a tooth or teeth? Or is it because you have to have a tooth extracted due to damage from an injury, tooth clenching or severe decay? If you hide your smile or you’re scared of what your smile will look like after having a tooth removed, stop, take a breath, and take time to read this blog from Millennium Smiles in Frisco, Texas. We offer patients an array of tooth replacement options, including dental implants, dentures, partial dentures, and all-on-four dentures.
Dentures are a prosthetic dental device designed to replace a missing tooth or teeth. If you’re already cringing at the thought of dentures, you probably are thinking about the dentures of years past – uncomfortable, clunky, or awkward.
You may also be afraid of getting dentures because of fears that they will change your speech, make eating difficult or fall out of your mouth while talking. But, trust us – dentures have come a long way in recent years.
Advances in dental technology have allowed for the development of both semi-permanent and permanent denture options for tooth replacement.
We offer a wide array of denture options, including traditional removable full and partial dentures. These options are designed to be removed for easy cleaning.
We also offer semi-permanent dentures that are designed to “snap on” to titanium posts that have been implanted into your jaw after a tooth extraction. Like dental implants, these posts fully integrate into your jaw bone, offering stability and strength to your dentures and allow them to function and feel like natural teeth.
These snap on options can be removed for easy daily cleaning. We also offer patients a screw-on denture option, too. Instead of snapping on and off, screw-on dentures are screwed on to the posts and removed during your regular dental cleanings twice a year.
If you’re still undecided about dentures, here are a few reasons why you may want to think again:
You dislike your current denture(s) because they are old and do not fit properly or are stained or damaged.
Your teeth are in bad shape and may not be able to be restored.
You have had a tooth pulled, and you want a long-term tooth replacement option.
You do not have the bone tissue support for a dental implant.
You look or feel (or both) older than you are because of tooth loss or because your existing dentures are old or damaged.
You want a high-quality denture.
You want your dentures to look like natural teeth.
You want to regain a youthful appearance.
