You don't need to live without teeth. Dentures give you the freedom to eat, speak and smile as you've always done. At Kitt Dental, Parris Kitt, DDS can fit you for a natural-looking, comfortable, and durable set of dentures.
If you're looking for a Flint dentist who can help you create the perfect set of prosthetic teeth, schedule a consultation at 903-561-4477. We offer full, partial, and implant-supported dentures.
Let us design a traditional set of dentures carefully crafted to match your gums, jaws, and natural teeth. Modern dentures use materials that mimic the look and function of natural teeth. They're carefully fitted to your unique mouth, and many people find that adhesives are unnecessary. A well-fitted set of dentures is comfortable, attractive, and easy-to-care for.
Full dentures allow you to eat and speak normally. These skills are especially important for preserving whole-body health. Eating well gives you the nutrition you need to fight off disease and to stay active and alert. Meanwhile, speaking well helps you communicate your concerns and needs while maintaining an active and enjoyable social life.
Remember that dentures still require good oral hygiene. You should brush your gums, tongue, and mouth twice a day to remove bacteria that could damage your soft tissues. Soak your dentures in a cleaner recommended by your dentist. Proper care will ensure that your new dentures last a long time.
If you have a mix of healthy and missing teeth but are not a good candidate for a bridge, partial dentures can restore your ability to chew and speak while allowing you to keep your remaining teeth. Care for partial dentures just as you would full dentures.
Implant supported dentures are secured with titanium screws or dental implants. Since the dentures screw into place, they can be more stable than traditional dentures and provide a more secure fit. The implanted screws are attached to your jaw bones during an in-office surgery. These dentures are only available to patients in good health with the bone mass necessary to support the implants.
