Dentures and Partials in Houston, Texas
Dr. Anne Chee offers affordable and comfortable tooth replacement.
For as long as there has been civilization, there have been people trying to find ways to comfortably, functionally, and beautifully replace missing teeth. Missing teeth is a common problem, with over half of Americans over the age of 35 having lost at least one tooth. Ninety percent of the endentulous population (people missing all of their teeth) have been fit for dentures. When all is said and done, missing teeth is a common problem, and dentures are a reliable solution. Anne Chee, DDS in Houston, Texas relies on modern materials and methods to create excellent and affordable dentures and partials to help those in our community who are missing teeth experience freedom and function once again.
Dentures and partial dentures involve acrylic teeth set on a gum-like base. While dentures may be removable, advances have been made to create more reliable and secure dentures. Full dentures are held in place with suction and the help of denture adhesives; partial dentures replace some teeth and are held in place with clips or clasps.
Your denture or partial denture will be completely custom-made to match your smile. It’s important that it fit your gum line exactly so that you can experience excellent comfort and security. As the years go on, you can return to our Houston dental office to have your denture or partial refit as needed; over time, the gum line and jaw bone will change shape, but that doesn’t mean you have to wear an ill-fitting denture!
Whatever you do, make sure you explore your tooth replacement options if you have gaps in your smile. There are several problems associated with missing teeth that can be avoided with timely tooth replacement.
