Dentures in Frisco, TX
What should you consider when it comes to dentures?
How are you going to feel when all of your teeth are gone and you need to wear two dental pieces instead? Do you want to consider trying to keep all of the original teeth that you can? Many people go into getting these dental pieces thinking it’s better to remove all their teeth, even when there are plenty of healthy teeth left. Why is this important? Because when your teeth are all gone, you cannot put them back. It is crucial that you fully understand what you are getting yourself into before taking the plunge. People don’t often think of it, but they can be very bothered by feeling things in their mouths that don’t belong there. How do you feel when you have obstructions in your mouth that you are unable to remove for some time?
To get an understanding of this, you could try doing something simple like sleeping with a nightguard to gauge how having a full set of false teeth will make you feel. Another thing to take into consideration is that no matter what type of denture you get, you will likely have to overcome some speech issues.
Other points about dentures to include:
- How do I handle things being in my mouth?
- Do I grind or clench my teeth?
- Is relearning to say some sounds going to be a problem?
- Do I have teeth that I can salvage?
Types of Prosthetic Teeth
As mentioned above, there are many types of fake teeth that you can have put in place. Here is a list:
- Partial removable
- Implanted partial
- Implanted full
- Removable full
When you are thinking about these dental care items, it is easy to say, “Just get rid of them all and give me the least expensive option.” Again, consider how much mileage you get out of your mouth. You eat multiple times a day, and you constantly talk and breathe. Your mouth is an essential part of your body.
That said, your best bet is to go to your dentist and have them explain all of the options to you. If your teeth are beyond saving, then, by all means, have them removed and get some false teeth that you will be comfortable wearing.
If you can save some teeth, consider partial dentures. They will be less expensive, and you will have more of your original teeth. The advantage of having false teeth implanted is that you will not lose bone structure in your face around your mouth. Implants will stimulate bone growth, and you will not have that sunken-in look. Another advantage is that you will be able to eat a wider variety of foods with the implant.

Best dental team in Texas!!! I have been to them now for 2 dental emergencies and in both cases they have been phenomenal. on my last visit, I needed 2 teeth pulled. after the 1st tooth, my anxiety was getting the best of me (I have very bad dental anxiety) and before I even said anything, Dr. E offered to reschedule my other tooth for another day. not only do they do amazing work, but they actively listen to their patients and work with them. i will recommend them to everyone i know, and I'm certainly not going anywhere else!
