& Implant Dentistry
Although you had never expected it to happen to you, you are among the 35 million Americans who no longer have any remaining natural teeth. Now, you have difficulty chewing your food, speaking clearly, and smiling with confidence. Did you know that you can regain your quality of life with dentures in Fort Worth? While they have a bad reputation for looking fake, several advancements in dentistry allow them to look more realistic than ever before. If you are ready to invest in your smile, Dr. Gary N. Pointer has the solutions you need.
With each missing tooth, you will begin to experience a drastic decline in your daily life. When complete tooth loss occurs, you will live with many struggles that cannot only impact your happiness but your health as well.
It can seem almost impossible chewing many foods. As a result, it is not uncommon to limit your diet. Over time, this can lead to nutritional deficiencies that can cause an array of health complications. Not to mention, you may find yourself not speaking often because it has become too difficult to pronounce certain sounds, making your speech sound slurred. You will also notice changes to your facial appearance as your lips and cheeks take on a sunken look because they no longer have the support of your teeth.
You can resolve all these complications with dentures. If you are missing all your natural teeth on the top or bottom arch, dentures will allow you to chew many of your favorite foods and speak clearly once again. Using impressions of your mouth, custom-made prosthetic teeth are created, which are attached to an acrylic gum-colored arch. It is then held in place using suction or an adhesive.
Using durable and high-quality materials, they will look natural to restore your confidence. With the right care, your new smile can last for several years before needing to be replaced. To promote its longevity, it is best to take the time to clean them every day and soak them before going to bed in a denture solution.
Over time, your dentures may no longer offer the same fit as they had in the past. To restore their comfort, you will need regular adjustments with your dentist in Fort Worth.
If you still have a few remaining natural teeth, you can regain a complete smile with partials. Prosthetic teeth are created to fill the empty space. They will be attached to a gum-colored base that also has a metal framework. This allows it to clasp on to your remaining natural teeth to hold it in place.
With dentures and partials, you can invest in your smile and your quality of life with a convenient and affordable solution. If you would like to gain added security and stability, ask Dr. Pointer about the benefits of implant-retained dentures.
