Millions of people are adversely affected by the troubling issue of tooth loss. When this occurs, a person’s appearance can greatly suffer, and routine tasks like chewing food and speaking clearly can become quite challenging. If tooth loss is left untreated, it can lead to jawbone deterioration, a loss of facial structure, severe bite imbalances and undesired tooth shifts. Because of this, it is very important to seek treatment for tooth loss as soon as possible.
At ProSmiles Dental, we understand the seriousness of tooth loss, and we take great pride in providing patients with natural-looking dentures that offer the appearance and function of healthy teeth. A denture is made up of prosthetic teeth that are attached to a gum-colored supporting base. The devices are secured inside the user’s mouth using special mechanisms that keep them steady, even when the wearer is talking or eating.
Although wearing dentures can take some getting used to, most users find that they are comfortable and function much like natural teeth.
There are several kinds of dentures, and the type that is used greatly depends upon the unique needs of the patient. If you would like to learn more about the denture options that are available to you, please call us at (817) 369-8000 to schedule an appointment.
