I’m Having a Hard Time Chewing

Eat your favorite foods and enjoy life again with beautiful, permanent teeth from your Plano dentist.

Bad teeth and ill-fitting dentures can make it difficult or impossible to chew. Loose dentures can come off when you’re eating or in the middle of a conversation. Damaged teeth often make it painful to eat. Instead of enjoying meals, you may lose your appetite because your diet is restricted to soft, mushy foods. Over time, poor diet leads to poor nutrition and reduced quality of life.

What’s life if you can’t eat the foods you love? Let your Plano dentist restore your mouth to full health and beauty with solutions like bridges, partial/complete dentures, implant-retained dentures, and dental implants. Dr. Hucklebridge is one of the few dentists in the area offering comprehensive dental services in one location. We perform oral surgery right here in the office, so you don’t have to run around town.

Bridges

A bridge fills the space left by a missing tooth. The device is composed of an artificial tooth and one or more abutment teeth covered with dental crowns. The replacement tooth is made of durable, natural-looking porcelain that blends seamlessly with your remaining teeth.

Partial and Complete Dentures

Partial dentures are used if you have some teeth remaining, while complete dentures are used if all of your teeth are missing. Dentures are affordable and effective. They replace missing teeth, support your facial muscles and restore your ability to chew and speak normally. However, they need to be adjusted and replaced over time.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are small, biocompatible screws that replace your natural tooth roots. Because implants are designed to fuse with your own bone, they are the most secure and long-lasting foundation for permanent crowns or dentures.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Dental implants are excellent anchors for partial and complete dentures. Instead of removable dentures that sit on your gums, implant-retained dentures are fixed and secure. Most dental experts recommend implant-retained dentures over basic dentures for comfort and function.
