Mesquite TX Dentures, Partials, and Bridges
As we get older, the aging process takes its toll on our teeth. Multiple dental problems throughout a lifetime can contribute to the loss of teeth later in life. Gum disease, for instance, is the primary cause of adult tooth loss. Dentures, partials, and bridges are attractive solutions for restoring a beautiful smile.
Missing teeth cause many problems. Eating and speaking become difficult. Remaining teeth shift out of place to compensate for missing teeth, and this alters occlusion, or how upper and lower teeth fit together. Poor occlusion can result in TMJ disorder and bruxism. Studies show, edentulous people (those with no teeth) don’t live as long as people with a full set of teeth. Furthermore, every missing tooth that’s not replaced increases your risk for losing more teeth in the next few years. The other obvious concern is self-esteem. Missing teeth are unattractive. Whether you need a denture fitting, denture repairs or simply a denture consultation, call Dr. George and the team at Mesquite Dental.
Dentures replace all missing teeth on the upper and/or lower arch. They may be fixed (non-removable, permanently secured to dental implants) or removable. Dentures have a notorious reputation for fitting poorly and slipping out of place. With implant retained dentures, these problems don’t occur.
A partial denture fills spaces left by missing teeth. This type of appliance keeps remaining natural teeth from shifting out of position. Partials generally have clasps that attach to healthy teeth. However, dental implants can be placed to secure partial dentures.
Crown and Bridgework
A dental bridge replaces one or more teeth in a row. A traditional dental bridge consists of two crowns with solid replacement teeth between. The crowns attach to natural, healthy teeth (abutment teeth) adjacent to the space left by missing teeth. Bridges may also be secured to dental implants.
