Dentures in Schertz

Comprehensive Dentures

Whether you’re missing a single tooth or you’ve lost so many teeth that you’re struggling to eat, dentures are an effective, affordable, and versatile treatment for tooth loss. Dentures restore support to the muscles around your mouth to help improve your speech and facial aesthetics.

Restoring the missing tooth structure in your mouth will help you chew and grind foods and prevent existing teeth from drifting. Removable dentures make it easy to pop your artificial teeth in and out and make cleaning a breeze. 

Dentures will improve your quality of life by improving your nutrition, pronunciation, smile, and confidence. Contact us at Strahler Dental Partners today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Strahler or Dr. Penshorn.

Full Dentures

When you’re missing many teeth, you’re likely a good candidate for full dentures. A full denture is a comprehensive replacement for tooth loss - replacing all of the teeth in an arch or both arches of teeth. Full dentures are only for patients with severe tooth loss, as the remaining teeth in any arch that is being replaced with dentures need to be extracted.

This is because a full denture is fabricated to be held in place through suction and this is done by forming a seal along the gumline. After extracting your teeth, you will need about 8 to 12 weeks for your gums to fully heal before you can be fit for dentures.

Through repeated trial fittings, adjustments will continue to be made to the denture that is fabricated in the dental lab until it fits as comfortably and accurately as possible. Full dentures have an average lifespan of about 7 to 10 years but you may need to replace them sooner if your facial structure begins to change due to bone loss.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is more similar to a bridge in its structure except that it is removable instead of fixed. Partial dentures are attached to the abutment teeth with metal clasps to prevent them from moving. The placement of a partial denture fills in gaps, prevents drifting teeth after tooth loss, and assists with tooth functionality. Partials have a maximum lifespan of 15 years.

Benefits of Dentures

Modern dentures are fabricated with the use of advanced technology which allows us to create a precise fit that doesn’t slip, properly functions as close as possible to real teeth, and looks like natural teeth.

Your dentures are created in a state-of-the-art dental lab using highly durable and aesthetic materials to improve your smile and restore missing tooth structure. You will be able to regain the functionality of your teeth so you can eat your favorite foods and speak more clearly so others can understand you.

By filling in gaps in the smile and replacing missing or damaged teeth with dentures, you will improve your facial aesthetics and look more youthful. When you lose teeth, the underlying jawbone begins to resorb. This can cause your face to sag over time due to a lack of support around these muscles. The replacement of missing teeth with dentures also restores muscle tone in the face.
