Your teeth work hard every day. Think about all the multitasking they do for you daily. They allow you to chew food properly and speak clearly. Teeth also fill your smile. Now imagine what life would be like without them. Millions of people in the United States have suffered tooth loss. If you are missing one or more teeth, then it’s time to talk to your dentist in Altus, OK, about dentures. Partials and dentures are the key to restored smiles for many patients. At Tamarack Dental Associates, we will help find the right tooth replacement solution for your case.
False teeth have been in use for centuries. The good news, advances in dental technology, materials, and manufacturing have made dentures more comfortable. In addition, they are more natural-looking than ever before. Your dentist takes all of the preliminary steps including x-rays, impressions, and mouth measurements, to ensure that the denture he designs looks and feels like your natural teeth.
If you have not experienced complete tooth loss, a partial denture may be the right option to restore your smile. Both fixed and removable partials are available at Tamarack Dental Associates. Also known as a dental bridge, a fixed partial consists of tooth crowns that are placed over natural teeth and support the prosthetic that fills in the missing gap. A removable partial involves replacement teeth that are mounted to a metal frame that attaches to adjacent natural teeth.
Patients missing an entire mouthful of teeth will need complete or full dentures. This dental appliance is custom made to fit the top or bottom arch without irritation. It involves an acrylic gum-colored base and a row of prosthetic teeth. Your dentist will make sure your new teeth fit securely and comfortably.
