Chronic periodontal disease, long-term problems with tooth decay and other dental health problems can affect the health and integrity of your teeth. If you have compromised teeth or you’ve lost several teeth in your mouth, Dr. Anthony Gonzalez might recommend fitting you for a set of removable dentures.
In some cases, you might only need to have your upper teeth or lower teeth replaced by dentures or you might need to have all your teeth replaced by dentures in a single session.
After the tooth extractions have been completed and your gums have been sutured, your dentist will make an impression of your underlying gum structure. This will be sent to a dental lab to serve as a guide while making your custom dentures.
Your dentures will be custom fit to the unique shape of your mouth. However, many denture wearers like to use denture adhesive for an extra-secure hold. Denture adhesive can also help block out stray food particles from getting between the base of the dentures and your gums.
If you have multiple missing or compromised teeth, you should call 361-387-1507 to have our Anthony Gonzalez, DDS team fit you for a set of dentures in Corpus Christi, Texas.
