Don't let missing teeth compromise the quality of your life! Modern advancements in dentistry have led to dentures that are more comfortable and natural-looking than ever before. Patients need excellent periodontal care before receiving dentures, and Dr. George Pylant in Bedford provides this specialized care to the greater Mid-Cities, Grapevine, Colleyville, and Southlake areas. You can begin smiling, chewing, and speaking with renewed confidence. Stop waiting and start living comfortably again!

Preparing the Foundation of a Healthy Smile

Every patient is unique - your mouth, your health history and your oral health goals. As a result, we believe that every set of dentures must be custom crafted to match the dimensions your unique smile. Are you missing all of your teeth? Do you have some healthy teeth in place, or just a few teeth that need to be extracted and replaced? Whatever your unique situation,, Dr. Pylant will begin by taking appropriate measures to achieve a healthy foundation before your restorative dentist begins preparing your dentures. This may include periodontal treatment, gum grafting, or other treatments.

Once Dr. Pylant has confirmed a healthy-state-of-mouth, your restorative dentist can begin crafting your custom dentures.

Implant-Supported Dentures

While traditional dentures may provide a comfortable fit, they can shift out of place when speaking or eating. Fortunately, implant-supported dentures eliminate this problem by connecting to ultra-durable prosthetic tooth roots. Dr. Pylant can place dental implants to restore full functionality to your smile. Implant-supported dentures attach to three to five dental implants, which are small titanium posts surgically implanted in the jawbone. Implant-supported dentures can be removed for cleaning, but will stay securely in place during daily activities. With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy foods like apples and steaks, and speak with pronounced clarity and confidence. 

Meanwhile, dental implants can actually help you retain bone mass in your jaw. In the absence of tooth roots, the jaw bone will begin to slowly atrophy, or lose bone mass. Dental implants actually halt this process, making them an outstanding investment in the health of your smile.

Benefits of Dentures

Are you considering dentures but unsure about the benefits that may result? Traditional dentures or implant-supported dentures both offer a wide array of benefits. Below are just a few of the benefits you will experience:

  • Restored Confidence: Missing teeth can make you feel self-conscious about smiling. Dentures restore a healthy, natural-looking appearance so you can smile with confidence.

  • Improved Dental Function: Missing teeth make daily activities like eating and speaking difficult. Dentures help to restore your ability to carry out these essential functions.

  • Improved Aesthetics: Modern dental restorations are stronger and more natural-looking than ever before. Once Dr. Pylant has prepared a healthy foundation for your new smile, your restorative dentist can provide you with a custom set of dentures that will stand up to chewing, and look completely natural to everyone around you.

  • Improved Overall Health: The ability to bite and chew is an essential part of consuming a balanced diet.
