How dentures can act as a proper tooth replacement for Spring area residents

 In Dentures

The loss of a tooth can occur for a number of reasons. Extremely large cavities, trauma, periodontal disease, and extraction may all leave patients with a gap within their smile where their natural tooth used to be. Patients who have lost one tooth or several teeth may speak to Dr. Robert Dernick about the ways in which they can restore the smile’s functionality and beauty. Common tooth replacement options include dental implants, dental bridges, and full or partial dentures.

Dentures can act as a proper tooth replacement for patients in and around the Spring area who are missing teeth. Dentures come in two varieties, full and partial dentures. Partial dentures replace one or more teeth within the upper or lower dental arch, while full dentures replace an entire arch by using false teeth and gums. Full dentures can be kept in place with dental adhesives, natural suction, or dental implants. Sometimes patients consider dentures as a short-term solution until they decide on fixed options such as bridges or implants. Other times, patients choose dentures because of their ease of use and the fact that they can be removed for easy care and cleaning.

Dr. Robert Dernick can work with patients to determine if dentures are appropriate for their specific dental needs. Most patients are appropriate candidates for dentures, while patients considering bridges or dental implants may need other considerations in place including healthy surrounding teeth and/or sufficient bone underneath the gum tissue. Patients considering full dentures may speak to their dentist about the possibility of placing several dental implants in the dental arch for stability. Many denture wearers who deal with considerable shifting and wear of the gum tissue from full dentures may enjoy implant-supported dentures.

Patients in and around the Spring and Conroe areas can speak with Dr. Robert Dernick about the methods of tooth restoration appropriate for their needs, lifestyle, and budget.
