Having gaps in your smile from missing teeth can alter your speech, reduce your enjoyment during meals, and cause you to feel self-conscious about your appearance. Fortunately, Southwest Smiles offers several treatments that can restore your ability to speak, eat, and smile.
In this blog post, we highlight how dentures can help you regain confidence in your smile and improve your overall health.
Do I Need Dentures?
Dentures are a versatile, budget-friendly restorative treatment that have improved the quality of life for many of our patients. Partial dentures are great for patients who have a few missing teeth, while full dentures can replace an entire upper or lower arch.
Are Dentures Comfortable?
Modern dentures are more comfortable and durable than ever before. They are custom-crafted from impressions we take of your gums and remaining teeth. Once your dentures are complete, we’ll make sure they fit snugly against your gums. It may take a few days to fully get used to having them in your mouth, but they shouldn’t feel awkward or ill-fitting. If they do, we’ll bring you back in for an adjustment. We want you looking and feeling your best!
Can Dentures Improve My Health?
Without any intervention, gaps in your smile can trap food, thus increasing your risk of decay, bad breath, gum disease, and additional tooth loss. Missing teeth also allow neighboring teeth to shift and can result in changes to your facial structure. Investing in a tooth replacement sooner rather than later can help prevent malnutrition, anxiety, and depression.
Are Dentures Expensive?
The cost of your dentures will depend on how many teeth you are missing, your oral health history, and other factors. Before we proceed with any treatment plan, we will provide you with a cost estimate and discuss the right payment option for your needs. We accept cash, major debit and credit cards, many dental insurance plans, and flexible third-party financing through CareCredit®.
