Dentist in Houston explains the benefits of tooth replacement treatments

When patients are missing teeth, it is difficult for them to speak and chew properly. Tooth loss can also affect their confidence and potentially cause them embarrassment. At Vivid Dental in Houston, we provide tooth replacement options that can boost self-esteem and add beautiful enhancement to their smiles. We provide dental bridges and dentures to restore missing teeth. Patients often ask, “What are the benefits of tooth replacement treatments?” We are happy to explain them.

Understanding dental bridges and their benefits

We recommend dental bridges when patients are missing one, or a few teeth. These prosthetics contain artificial teeth and dental crowns. We place the dental crowns on the teeth on each side of the gap to ensure stability of the prosthetic. The artificial teeth and dental crowns blend nicely with the smile. Patients can enjoy many benefits from dental bridges. Dental bridges can restore their ability to chew and speak properly, distribute the forces of their bite properly, and prevent remaining teeth from drifting. The prosthetics also help maintain the shape of their faces. With proper care, dental bridges can last more than a decade.

Understanding dentures and their benefits

Dentures can be the right solution for partial to complete tooth loss. We provide partial and full dentures, to meet the various needs of our patients. We can customize these prosthetics for precise fit and ideal appearance. Like dental bridges, dentures can restore the ability to speak and chew properly. Chewing thoroughly can improve digestion. Patients enjoy the natural look dentures provide. They often feel better about themselves and more confident in social settings. With good dental care, dentures can last more than a decade.

Exploring treatment

Both dental bridges and dentures can restore health and beauty to the smile. We recommend scheduling a consultation to determine which solution may be best for you. During your appointment, our dentist will examine your mouth, teeth, and gums. He may take x-rays and impressions of your mouth. We send the molds to a dental laboratory for fabrication of the dental bridge or dentures.
Are you looking for a solution for tooth loss? We may have the right one for you. Schedule a consultation appointment with our dentist by calling our team at (281) 809 4902.
