Huntsville Dentistry - Dentures in Huntsville, TX
People that have damaged or missing teeth often feel self-conscious about their smile, are unable to chew food properly, and have a change in their quality of life. Dentures may be the best option to make life easier and healthier for these people. A denture is a removable dental appliance for the replacement of missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are designed to be comfortable and functional, while drastically improving esthetics, function, and health for a persons smile. They are made to closely resemble natural teeth and may enhance their smile.
At Scott A. Logan, DDS, we provide two types of dentures: Complete and Partial. Complete dentures are used to replace all of the teeth within the upper or lower arch. A partial denture is used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture can fill the space created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting.
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, over a few weeks. Highly accurate impressions, molds, and measurements are taken and used to create a custom denture. Several "try-in" appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color and fit. At the final appointment, the completed denture will be placed and adjustments made to ensure a natural and comfortable fit.
It is normal to experience some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulties, but these will subside as muscles and tissues get use to the new denture.
