At The Texas Dental Center, we take pride in crafting comfortable, aesthetic and well-fitting custom dentures for our patients. Dentures typically come in two forms: full and partial dentures. Full dentures are used to replace an entire set or arch of teeth, while partial dentures are used to fill the gaps between just a missing few.
Patients who have lost most or all of their upper or lower teeth will need full dentures, while those who only lost a few teeth can wear a partial denture. In addition, temporary dentures may also be made for patients who are having problems with their current dentures and are in need of an immediate replacement.With full and partial dentures, Dr. Mofid will not only give you back your smile, but he will give you back your dental function, quality of life and confidence as well.
A patient can lose their teeth or require a tooth extraction for many different reasons, including as a result of tooth decay, gum disease or injury. Genetic defects, malnutrition, drug use and trauma may also lead to tooth loss, creating a need for a tooth replacement solution that restores a person’s ability to chew, speak and smile with ease.
When a tooth needs to be extracted, Dr. Mofid ensures his patients are completely comfortable and that the dental experience is a relaxing one. To achieve this, a local anesthetic is used to numb the site, and an additional sedative can also be added for patients who may need it.
A tooth extraction is completed in small sections to minimize bone loss. As pieces are removed, the site is thoroughly cleaned and prepared for your denture placement. After your tooth is extracted, a temporary denture can be used to help prevent any disruption in your daily life.
There are many different options that can be used to replace a missing tooth. If you wear dentures, but want a more permanent solution, The Texas Dental Center also offers dental implants, dental bridges, implant-supported dentures, and other forms of tooth replacement that can help you achieve a beautiful and functional smile.
