Dentures from Lisa Heinrich-Null, DDS in Victoria, TX
If you’re missing one or more teeth, you may be looking at dentures as an option for restoring your smile to its natural brilliance. Dentures allow you to have a full set of teeth that look good and function correctly. At the dental office of Dr. Lisa Heinrich-Null, you can achieve a complete smile with several different denture options.
You can obtain dentures in Victoria, TX that include:
Full & Partial Dentures
Not everyone needs a full set of dentures- sometimes you just need to replace a few missing teeth. Partial dentures rest on a framework that attaches to your remaining natural teeth, and offer a removable alternative to dental bridges. A full denture is fitted to your mouth after all of your remaining teeth are extracted and the tissue inside your mouth heals. With dentures, the base covers your gums, and are custom made to fit your mouth. Both partial and full dentures will improve your bite, and will positively impact your overall health by allowing you to eat and chew better, thereby improving digestion.
Caring for your dentures is simple. Just be sure to remove and rinse them after eating, brush them daily, and soak them overnight.
Implant Supported Dentures
An implant supported denture does not rest on your gums- it is supported by and attached to dental implants. Like conventional dentures, there are partial and full implant options. There are removable and fixed options, but implant supported dentures offer a stable, more permanent solution to tooth loss. If you have a removable implant supported denture, you would remove it every day to clean the denture and gum area.
Since the appliance is not resting on your gums, there is a greater level of comfort, enabling you to eat and talk with ease. Because the overdentures snap in place, they will not slip or fall out during the day. An additional benefit is that the implant supported dentures also support the patient's jaw bone and facial structure, strengthening the integrity of the bone and stopping early facing aging that is often associated with missing teeth.
