Dental Dentures

When a person has lost a significant number of teeth, or even an entire arch of teeth, dentures are the most practical tooth loss solution. Dentures can replace a large set or a complete arch of teeth to restore oral function and improve the appearance of the smile.

Whether a patient needs partial or complete dentures will depend on how many teeth are missing. Beyond that, there are some options for patients to consider. Many of our Missouri City, TX, patients at Fort Bend Dental are interested in learning more about affordable dentures. Our dental team is happy to go over the denture solutions that may be right for each of our patients.

Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are removable restorations that sit over the patient’s gum line. If the patient needs a partial denture, the prosthetic can be held in place with small metal wires that hook around adjacent teeth. Traditional dentures tend to have a bad reputation for slipping out of place and causing gum irritation, but today’s dentures are much more comfortable and secure than those in the past.

Dentures are made to fit the specific measurements of each patient’s mouth. Our dentists use advanced CT scan technology to get the most precise images of the dental arch.

The custom measurements, personalized fabrication process, and high quality products provide our Missouri City patients with a tooth loss solution that is strong, durable, and attractive. Because the use of traditional dentures should not require any additional dental work, they are also the most affordable dentures for our patients to consider.

Implant-supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are held in place by a series of surgically implanted titanium posts. Dental implants fuse with the patient’s jawbone to provide a level of stability and comfort that surpasses that of even the most advanced traditional dentures.

Because implant-supported dentures require a lengthier and more complex treatment process that involves oral surgery, many patients assume this treatment option is out of their budget.

Implant-supported dentures can actually be an affordable tooth loss solution, especially if patients consider their long-term benefits. With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime.

While dental implants do cost more upfront than traditional dentures, patients should also keep in mind that there are several payment options that can make dental implant treatment more budget-friendly. Our Missouri City patients can consider payment plans or dental credit plans that allow them to spread out the cost of dental implant treatment so that it is more affordable.
