League City, TX

A happy older couple in League City, TX who received excellent denture services from Tieken Smiles DentistryFor people who have unhealthy teeth or multiple missing teeth, getting fitted with dentures can be a great option. At Tieken Smiles Dentistry, we offer restorative dentistry options, including different types of dentures for people who do not have teeth.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable oral devices used to replace missing teeth. They typically consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base, which is equipped with a number of artificial porcelain teeth.
There are two types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are recommended when a person has no teeth at all. These upper dentures are made to stay in place with the help of the palate while the lower dentures are horseshoe-shaped and made to accommodate the tongue.
There are two types of complete dentures:
•  Conventional dentures: are made once any remaining teeth are removed and your mouth is completely free of teeth. The gums are then given about 8 to 12 weeks to heal and once they have shrunk back to their original size, conventional dentures are made. These dentures offer the best fit, comfort and last a long time.
•  Immediate dentures are placed on the gums on the same day as your teeth extraction. These dentures aid in the healing process and curb bleeding and gum swelling. They also allow you to practice speaking, eating, and breathing with dentures while you wait for your conventional dentures. Since these dentures are not as well-fitted as conventional dentures, they should only be used as a temporary measure.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when you have a few natural and healthy teeth left in your mouth. Partial dentures consist of a metal framework equipped with a pink base and prosthetic teeth. The metal framework helps the dentures to attach to your natural teeth.
Partial dentures are not used just to replace lost teeth but also prevent the natural teeth in your mouth from moving out of position. Unlike bridges and dental implants that are irremovable, partial dentures can be taken out of the mouth.

Benefits of Dentures

•  Dentures can restore your ability to chew, even though you may not be able to eat very hard or sticky foods.
•  Dentures can restore your smile.
•  Partial dentures can preserve your oral health by not placing undue stress on your remaining teeth while chewing.
•  Dentures are a conservative tooth restoration option, unlike other treatments like dental bridges and dental implants.
•  Dentures are very cost-effective.
