Dentures are an excellent solution for replacing missing teeth and can improve your quality of life. This dental treatment option is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and the surrounding tissue. Dentures provide support for your facial muscles, assist with your ability to chew and eat food, and improve your ability to speak normally. With the advances in dental implants and other techniques in the last 30 years, dentures can frequently be used in conjunction with implants for increased functionality and comfort. Still, for many people dentures alone are a very cost-effective solution to the problem of aging teeth and gum disease. If your teeth have reached the point where you are considering dentures, we invite you to come in for a complimentary consultation.

What is the difference between full and partial dentures?
Full dentures are a complete prosthetic tooth replacement when all the teeth are missing. Partial dentures replace one or more missing teeth, receiving support and retention from underlying tissues and some or all of the remaining teeth.

Will I have to go without teeth while waiting for dentures?
No! An “immediate denture” is made before the removal of the teeth and placed on the same day that the teeth are extracted. In this case, it is often necessary to adjust the denture with some material to fit it properly as the site heals. We offer experienced dentists who provide affordable dental implants in San Antonio.

Are dentures comfortable?
Anyone who starts wearing dentures will experience some adjustment period. Patients with new dentures may feel self-conscious and will need some time to get used to speaking and eating with them. With full dentures, the uppers are usually more stable than the lowers because uppers cover more surface area, allowing for a more “locked” fit. On the other hand, lowers are likely to be less stable since they cover less surface area, and movement of the tongue can unseat the denture. If this is a concern, a good solution is to have dental implants placed to give the denture something solid for attachment. Our dedicated San Antonio dentists will help you if you want more detailed information regarding dental implant-supported dentures.

How long will my dentures last?
The longevity of dentures will vary depending on how you take care of your dentures. Your rate of bone loss, biting force, diet, and the quality of your daily home dental care affect how long your dentures last.
