Although most patients and virtually all dentists would agree that it’s always better to keep your own natural teeth, sometimes that’s just not possible. If you are missing several teeth, or if you need to have your teeth extracted for whatever reason, dentures can change the quality of your life for the better. Dr. Brawner and his staff provide dentures and denture-related services to patients from throughout the Austin, TX, area.
Why You Should Choose Arbor Oaks Dental for Dentures
Modern-day dentures can be life changing for people with missing teeth, or for people who are living with the pain and discomfort of teeth that need to be removed. Unlike dentures from decades ago, dentures made today benefit from advanced dental technology, which means they generally fit better and last longer than dentures from earlier generations. If you need your teeth extracted, you will also benefit from modern-day technology and the advanced sedation techniques used to make the extractions as pain-free as possible. Dr. Brawner and his staff have the experience necessary to make sure that your dentures fit snugly and comfortably, and that tooth extraction procedures are as quick and painless as possible.
Important Information about Dentures
Generally speaking, dentures come in two varieties: full sets for patients with no teeth or those who need to have all their teeth extracted, and partial sets for people who are missing just a few teeth. There’s no doubt about it – missing teeth can make it hard to enjoy food and can even make it difficult to speak clearly. For those patients, dentures can make all the difference in the world.
The first step involved in getting a new set of dentures is having an impression made of your existing natural teeth. Experienced lab technicians will use this impression to create your custom-made dentures. If extractions are necessary, Dr. Brawner will schedule appointments to have a few extractions done per visit, allowing time for your gums to heal and for you to recover between visits. Once your gums have completely healed, you’ll be fitted with your new set of dentures.
