As a family-owned practice, everyone at Made Ya Smile firmly believes in the value of helping our patients to achieve a happy, healthy smile regardless of their age. The loss of your natural teeth can directly impact your health, oral function, and self-confidence. To give you the support you need to overcome the loss of several or all of your teeth our team is proud to provide aesthetic denture options. Board-certified dentist Dr. Eric Capps has years of experience replacing missing teeth for patients using customized removable partial and full dentures. These high-quality dental appliances are made from durable materials that can provide a healthy, natural-looking appearance for your smile and restore self-confidence following tooth loss. Dentures are a great treatment option for eating, speaking, and maintaining your natural facial shape, and are custom-crafted to match your appearance.
Full dentures are commonly used when all or some of a patient’s upper or lower teeth are missing or are damaged to the point of needing replacement. Partial dentures typically rely on existing teeth for support and can effectively fill spaces in your smile that occurs with the loss of several teeth. Don’t let tooth loss keep you from enjoying the better aspects of day to day life. If you are missing teeth and want to find out if dentures are a good solution for your dental concerns, be sure to contact our office in Rosenberg, TX right away to schedule an appointment with Dr. Capps.
Advancements in science and technology have allowed dentures to develop in new and increasingly effective ways over the years. At Made Ya Smile, we use materials that can closely match the natural look of tooth and gum structures while also being lighter to allow for the highest levels of comfort. You might be a good candidate for partial or full removable denture solutions if you have teeth that have been lost or if they are damaged beyond the point of more conservative restoration options.
Partial dentures could be a good solution if you have healthy teeth that are strong enough to support denture placement. Full dentures are a good solution if your gum tissues are still healthy and your jawbone has a structure sufficient for holding the denture in place. Depending on your specific situation, Dr. Capps might recommend attaching full or partial dentures to an implant that is positioned along the jaw for a fixed solution with greater support. Our experienced team has helped many patients in the Rosenberg, TX area with denture solutions and we are always ready to help you decide if this is the right choice for your oral health needs.
What To Expect
Customized dentures are created using an impression of your upper and lower arches. If you have teeth that require extraction as part of this process, we will take the impression first so that we can develop a temporary denture for you while the soft tissues of your gums take time to heal. Your impressions will be sent to our dental lab, and your permanent appliance will be developed using high-quality materials to accurately match your smile. Depending on your specific situation and preferences, your dentures could be constructed using resin, a metal framework, or lightweight acrylic material. Your replacement teeth will be custom-designed to closely match your natural teeth in both shape and color to promote a healthy and natural expression. Once your new dentures have been finished and they arrive at our office we will schedule a follow-up appointment so they can be attached to your implants, or so you can try them on to ensure a good, comfortable fit. During this follow-up, we can make adjustments as needed while also giving you the instructions you need to properly care for and clean your new dentures to make sure they last as long as possible.
It will typically take some time for you to become fully adjusted to your dentures. Once you begin wearing them consistently they will start to feel as if they are a natural part of your mouth over time while allowing you to eat and speak with increased comfort. Dr. Capps might suggest using denture adhesives to be sure that your appliance remains stable inside your mouth which is even more important for the upper arch. Partial dentures are easier to place and remove from the mouth and can attach effectively to your natural teeth using resin or metal clasps. When you first receive your dentures, our team will show you the best way to care for them and care for them so that they will continue to serve you for as long as possible.
To help keep your dentures in the best shape possible, it is important to regularly use a toothbrush or a denture brush combined with toothpaste to clean the appliance after each meal. Also, remember to soak your dentures in a water solution at night while you are sleeping. While dentures are not natural tooth structures, we still suggest sticking to a regular schedule of bi-annual cleanings and exam visits at our office. These appointments allow Dr. Capps to observe your dentures, professionally clean them, and make any adjustments as needed.
