When you are missing teeth, it can become a struggle to do everyday activities and often leads to a decline in self-esteem. Dr. LaKendra Sakeena believes in providing patients with natural-looking and effective teeth replacement options. We understand that making the decision to restore your mouth is an important one, which is why we offer our patients both the option of dental implants and dentures. Both dental implants and dentures are teeth replacement options that give you a complete smile that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. We offer restorations for single dental implants, full arch dental implants and dentures.
Replacing missing teeth is important to both your health and self-esteem no matter which teeth replacement option you choose. While dental implants are more long-term and secure, many patients choose to start with dentures for full arch tooth loss. During an in-depth consultation, Dr. Sakeena will examine your mouth and let you know if you qualify for dental implants in Missouri City, TX. We will also discuss your options and answer any questions or concerns you may have before proceeding. Choosing to restore your mouth will offer you life-changing benefits:
Dental implants are considered to be the gold standard of tooth replacement due to their health benefits, security, appearance and function. A biocompatible implant post will be inserted into your jaw which securely holds a natural-looking dental crown or full arch prosthesis. Dental implants are permanent with proper care, allow patients to eat all foods and won’t fall out or slip. Dental implants also stimulate jaw bone growth so there is no deterioration.
Dentures are commonly used as a teeth replacement option for those not yet ready for full arch dental implants. Dentures utilize a removable prosthesis that is worn over the gums to offer a natural appearance and restore biting and chewing function. Unlike dental implants which are permanent, dentures will need to be replaced or adjusted every 10 years or so to account for deteriorating bone and changing facial shape.
