Denture Specialist in Porter TX

Tooth loss can be devastating. What’s worse is that one lost tooth usually leads to another! You may prevent a smile from spreading across your face or cover your mouth in public places to avoid being embarrassed. You may find difficulty chewing your food. And you may start experiencing speech problems. In that case, DENTURES can be of great help eliminating these problems, giving you confident smile.

Types of dentures

At Porter Smiles Dental, we offer full and partial DENTURES to improve your quality of life. These are removable dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth. Partial dentures are only used when very few teeth are missing. When missing teeth create a space that is not conducive to bridgework, and implants are not advised, a partial denture is the next best option. Full dentures are used when all the teeth in the upper or lower arch are missing. They are fabricated to look like your natural teeth and fit on your gums.

Getting started

The process for getting dentures may take a few visits before you receive the completed prosthetic. It is normal to have a few sore spots at first, as you get used to wearing dentures. These spots require adjustment so your dentures can fit well. In order for dentures to be created, you will need to schedule an appointment. The dentist will then examine the state of your gums and teeth. A mold will then be taken of your teeth and gums for the dentures to be created in a dental lab. Using the impressions made from the mold, the lab will make a set of dentures that fit perfectly.

Denture care

You need to take your dentures out before going to sleep. Be sure to rinse them thoroughly with a denture brush to remove any food particles. Your dentures should soak overnight before placing them back in the mouth.
