Loose teeth and bone loss can cause your teeth to shift, creating gaps between teeth and crooked teeth. Gum disease not only changes your appearance, but it can also be painful. End the pain and restore your confidence with dentures and partials from M Dental at Aliana. We are experts at creating healthy, confident smiles for patients all over Richmond, TX!
What Are Dentures/Partials?
Dentures replace your natural teeth. If you're a patient who has lost some of their teeth, you'll need a partial denture to replace just the missing teeth. If you have lost all of your teeth, then we can replace your teeth with a complete set of dentures.
If you need complete dentures, you'll have two options: immediate or conventional. With immediate dentures, you won't have to wait for your gums to heal before the dentures are placed in your mouth. However, these dentures may need adjustments as your mouth heals.
Conventional dentures are ready for your mouth approximately 8 to 12 weeks after your oral surgery for teeth removal. These dentures allow for healing time and proper fit. Meet with our dentist to determine the best type of denture for you!
Signs You May Need Dentures/Partials
Do you suffer from gum disease or inflammation? Are your teeth loose? If your smile isn't as wide as it used to be, then make an appointment with M Dental at Aliana to talk about your options.
These are some of the signs to look for:
- Bleeding gums
- Red, swollen gums
- Sore gums
- Missing teeth
- Trouble eating hard or chewy food
If you're experiencing a few or all of these symptoms, it may be time to consider dentures.
