You deserve the very best in denture treatment, and the staff at Silver Oaks Dentistry is here to provide you with excellent, affordable treatment. When you visit Silver Oaks, you will find out about the different denture options available, such as:
Conventional dentures- consisting of a complete set of teeth, either lower or upper arches or both arches; these dentures are completed after your teeth have been taken out and your tissue has healed, a process that usually takes 6-8 weeks.
Immediate dentures- which are a complete set of teeth, placed immediately after the teeth are taken out; so you don’t have to be without teeth. As with any surgery, your gum tissue will shrink as it heals, so the immediate denture will need to be adjusted as your healing process goes on. After your tissue is completely healed, a conventional denture will be made for you.
Overdentures- which fit over any tooth roots remaining in your mouth. The remaining roots will serve as support for the denture. Overdentures are great because they preserve the bone in your jaw, maintaining the youthful contours of your face. Overdentures can also be made with implants, instead of teeth, used as support.
Partial dentures- are also an option if you can retain some teeth. These dentures are typically called removable partials and are designed to replace a few teeth, not all teeth in an arch.
If you need a denture but are not sure where to start, you owe it to yourself to start with the very best. Start with the professionals at Silver Oaks Dentistry in San Antonio, Texas. Call for a consultation and get started on your new teeth today!
