Pasadena, Texas Dentures
Old fashioned dentures are difficult for patients. Nothing has changed with the concept of old fashioned dentures for thousands of years. Dentures are made to resemble teeth and then jammed into someone’s mouth. Dentures only look like teeth. They in no way function like teeth. Dentures are big bulky plastic prosthesis that merely sit/float on the gum tissue. You are lucky if they stay put and good luck trying to eat anything other than soft foods.
Problems with Old Fashioned Dentures:
- Poor chewing ability
- Do not stay in place
- Rub sore spots on the gum tissue
- Fall out causing social embarrassment
- Need messy denture adhesives for stability
- INCREASE bone and gum tissue deterioration
- Alter the taste of food
- Difficulty speaking
What are Dentures?
Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that are custom-made by your dentists to fit your mouth and replace missing or extracted natural teeth. Dentures can be either complete or partial, meaning they can replace all missing teeth on the upper or lower gingival line, or just a few. Whatever type of dentures you require, they will be custom-made to suit your mouth and visually matched to your natural teeth.
Old fashioned dentures will increase your dental disability by accelerating bone and gum tissue loss.
Patients who have worn dentures for long periods of time will need new dentures made because the bone and gum tissue has continued to disappear. This creates unstable dentures. The new dentures are not going to fit as well as previous dentures because there is less bone to support the dentures.
Patients are usually unhappy with their new old fashioned dentures because they do not fit as well as previous dentures. This is due to the fact that there is less bone and tissue to support the denture and not a reflection of the treating dentist.
Doctor Nugent highly recommends Dental Implant Dentures or Fixed Hybrid Dentures. These dentures utilize dental implants to keep the denture secure. Furthermore, the dental implants stimulate and preserve bone.
Patients electing to get old fashioned dentures are almost always unhappy with the results.
