Does Your Denture Move? Learn How to Make It Stop

When you first receive a new conventional denture, the lifelike feel and stability can be of great comfort. Over time, however, that level of comfort and stability can begin to wane, causing your denture to become loose and begin to shift when you bite, chew, speak, or smile. At our Ft. Worth, TX, dental implant office, we can help you avoid this phenomenon by securing your denture on a series of dental implant posts. Dental implants stop your denture from shifting by addressing the two main causes of it – the changing shape of your jawbone after tooth loss, and the lack of lifelike supportive roots to secure it in place.

Dental Implants and the Rebuilding of Your Smile

Restoring a tooth that’s been damaged or compromised by decay is one thing. If done correctly, the restoration will save the tooth so you can preserve as much of its healthy, natural structure as possible. However, replacing a lost or extracted tooth is another thing. There is no longer any natural tooth structure to restore, so the replacement should do as much as possible to replicate it. At our Ft. Worth, TX, dental office, we can more effectively rebuild your smile by utilizing one or more dental implants. (more…)

A Glimpse at How Dental Implants Work

Today’s modern dental restorations and tooth replacement options are designed to closely mimic healthy, natural teeth, and that’s for more than just appearance’s sake. When your replacement teeth closely replicate the size, shape, and contour of your lost teeth, your bite functions better and you can improve the overall state of your oral health.

For example, without one or more dental implants, they can’t effectively reestablish the connections your healthy teeth had with your jawbone and other oral structures. At our Ft. Worth, TX, office, we help patients understand how dental implants work before recommending them so they know what to expect from their newly restored smiles. (more…)
