Living with missing teeth can present a number of challenges. Things that most people take for granted like eating, speaking or smiling, may become difficult when you have experienced tooth loss. However, there is no reason to despair. Your 77024 dental office provides a number of solutions for missing teeth, including high-quality dentures to restore the appearance and function of your smile. At Lifeworks Dental, we use state-of-the-art techniques to provide you with dentures that are comfortable and more natural looking than ever before.
Your oral health is an important component of your overall health, and missing teeth can affect your well being. Teeth play an important role in the digestive process, as the first step in the process of breaking down food that goes on to provide you with nourishment. If you cannot properly chew, it becomes difficult to eat the range of foods necessary to receive adequate nutrition, which is one reasons it is so important to replace missing teeth. When you visit our 77024 dental office, your dentist will do a comprehensive assessment of your oral health and dental needs to formulate a treatment plan that will address all of the requirements of your case. If dentures are the recommended, then diagnostic records including impressions of your mouth will be taken to design a set of replacement teeth that are customized to suit you. A complete denture is a set of artificial teeth that are set in a supportive acrylic base that fits over your gums. Partial dentures can also be fabricated some, but not all of the teeth in a dental arch are missing. Each day, before putting in your denture, make sure to brush your gums and tongue to maintain good oral hygiene. Over time, changes in your gums and jawbone may require your dentures to be adjusted or replaced. Although new dentures can take a little getting used to, your caring Lifeworks Dental professionals are available to assist you and make adjustments promptly so that in no time at all you will be enjoying all the foods you love and smiling with confidence.
