Once the preferred way to replace missing teeth, dentures remain a viable option for many people in the Lawton, Oklahoma area. At Premier Dental Arts, Dr. Brett R. Warn offers numerous denture solutions to address anything from several missing teeth to a complete set of full dentures. Missing teeth can make it hard for you to chew and speak properly, and might also cause you to feel self-conscious in social settings. Dentures offer a cost-effective solution, and a chance for you to feel great about your smile.
Today’s technology makes it possible to create custom fit dentures that are nearly indistinguishable from natural teeth. Plus, dentures offer a fast and affordable way to restore your smile. With proper care, they can last for many years.
Partial dentures can be anchored to adjacent teeth, and can be crafted to match the color and shape of your natural teeth. If you take care to rinse and brush them regularly, and avoid biting down on hard food or using your dentures to pry open bottles or other objects, you can expect years of use out of your initial investment.
While dental implants are permanent, they can be costly. You may want to consider choosing dentures as a short-term solution while you save up for dental implants.
Even though today’s dentures are light years beyond those that our grandparents had access to, they still have some limitations.
Dentures can slip and shift out of position, requiring the use of special adhesives. Some people have trouble finding the right fit, encounter difficulty eating or speaking as a result, and they also have to replace their dentures from time to time.
Implant retained dentures offer a stable anchor for artificial teeth on both your upper and lower gumline.
The process involves the surgical placement of multiple implants into the bone of your jaw. These implants then act as anchors which allow the specially constructed dentures to snap onto the implants.
If you are missing multiple teeth, implant retained dentures might be a good option for restoring your smile. Online scheduling makes it easy to select an appointment time, and Dr. Warn can work with you to determine the best approach to suit your needs and budget, guiding you through the process from beginning to end.
Overdentures are the actual dentures (false teeth) that secure into the implants through retentive attachments. Overdentures are removable and can be made for the top and bottom teeth. For more information about implant retained dentures, call Dr. Warn at Premier Dental Arts.
