People can lose their teeth due to many reasons, such as poor dental hygiene, illness, or a family history of dental health issues. This subsequently can cause a lack of confidence and people often consciously stop smiling or making eye contact.
But it’s not just ‘aesthetics’ that losing teeth impacts; it’s form and function as well. You may not be able to eat the foods you love anymore and your ability to communicate with people effectively may be impacted as well.
However, you can bring back your smile with Lovett Dental and our dentures if you live in Sugar Land TX. Dentures are one of the most effective solutions to restoring your smile and bringing back the confidence you lost. With proper dental care & hygiene and regular checkups & teeth cleaning in Sugar Land TX, your dentures can last for years without compromising their comfort, durability, or aesthetics.
We offer four primary denture varieties that can be used for different dental conditions. Here are the denture types we use at Lovett Dental in Sugar Land TX.
Implant-supported dentures are the most modern and offer unparalleled versatility when it comes to denture design. These dentures are comfortable, stable, and you won’t have to remove them every day. With implant-supported dentures, no one will be able to tell that those are dentures, not real teeth.
One small procedure has to be done to enable the use of these dentures: adding implants to your gums. These implants stimulate the jaw and provide protection against bone loss by serving as artificial tooth roots.
Implant-supported dentures are by far the most secure denture type, as you won’t have to worry about them slipping out of place whether you’re eating, sleeping, or talking with people.
Conventional dentures used to be the most popular type of denture in the past and for a good reason. They are easily applied and removed, and are generally more affordable than other denture types.
If you opt for these, our experienced dentists in Sugar Land TX will create these dentures once they extract your teeth and a few weeks pass so your gums can heal.
Immediate dentures are applied as soon as teeth are extracted. While these dentures aren’t as common for entire rows of teeth, they are excellent when replacing some immediately.
There are a couple of benefits that these dentures provide, including no toothless periods, which makes these dentures ideal for people who are in a rush. However, they will need readjustment to ensure a comfortable and snug fit while the gums heal, which can take a few weeks.
Removable partial dentures are made “to order” which makes them ideal for filling in gaps caused by tooth loss. They do not cause discomfort and work similarly to conventional dentures, where you place them onto your gums. The dentures have empty spaces where healthy teeth are to ensure a snug fit.
People opt for dentures for various reasons, most of which revolve around quality of life and health. Some of these reasons are:
Lovett Dental will provide the utmost quality dental services and care regardless of your reasoning for getting dentures. And, if you’re still on the fence about whether or not you need them, you can schedule a dental appointment with us to identify the best course of action.
While caring for your dentures doesn’t require anything too major, it’s still important to keep them clean and free from various buildup (plaque and tartar). People with removable or partially-removable dentures should take them out each day and clean them properly while
those with permanent dentures may need to be extra attentive in washing their teeth (with toothpaste, floss, and mouthwash).
On top of that, regular checkups are necessary to ensure no long-term plaque build-up on them (and any other teeth you may have). As part of these checkups, oral cancer screening is also done.
Everyone deserves a smile they can be proud of and white, shiny teeth. At Lovett Dental, we strive to provide every patient with the highest-quality dental care and service out there.
