What’s your favorite type of Halloween candy? Perhaps you enjoy a Charleston Chew or a bag of Reese’s Pieces? Whatever type of candy you love- one thing is certain: it can be hard to enjoy your candy when you have a hard time chewing it.

If you’re having a hard time chewing, we have solutions for you at the Plano Smile Studio in Plano, TX. We want you to be able to eat your favorite foods again; after all, food is the spice of life. We offer several solutions for replacing missing teeth including bridges, dentures, dental implants, and implant-retained dentures.

When your teeth or damaged or decayed it can become nearly impossible and incredibly painful to chew. When you’re having a hard time chewing, you have to severely restrict your diet to just softer foods. Over time, restricting your diet can leave you in a state of malnutrition.

The same is true if you are stuck wearing a pair of ill-fitting dentures. Can you imagine the embarrassment of your dentures falling out during a meal? Or worse yet, what if your dentures fall out during the course of a normal conversation? You might die from that type of embarrassment.
But that’s where we come in at Plano Smile Studio. In today’s post of our dental health blog, we want to tell you a little bit more about our comprehensive solutions for painful chewing. From bridges to dentures to dental implants, we’ve got you covered in one convenient Plano office.

Dental Bridge

A dental bridge is one of the most common ways to replace a missing tooth. A dental bridge is installed by placing dental crowns on the sides of your tooth. This crowns then support the bridge hardware. A dental bridge holds an artificial tooth in place on your missing tooth. Our artificial teeth are durable and natural-looking. We We work carefully to ensure that your bridge blends in seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.

Partial and Complete Dentures

We offer both partial and complete dentures at our Plano office. Partial dentures are used if you are missing several teeth, but still have some natural teeth remaining. Complete dentures are used if you are missing the entire row of your bottom or top teeth. Dentures are an effective way to replace missing teeth, as well as support your facial muscles. Dentures can restore your ability to chew and speak with ease; however dentures require adjustment and replacement over time.

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an artificial tooth root which we embed into your jawbone. Dental implants consist of a small, biocompatible screw on which we can place a dental crown or denture. Dental implants fuse with your natural bone structure, ensuring they are the most secure and long-lasting of any tooth replacement options. We highly recommend dental implants to all our patients who are missing teeth; with a dental implant you can chew and speak with ease and peace of mind.

Implant-Retained Dentures

We can also use dental implants as an anchor for dentures. Dental implants can be used to secure both partial and complete dentures. Traditional dentures sit on your gums and require adhesive to keep in place. Implant-retained dentures are fixed into place and secure. Implant-retained dentures are more comfortable and functional than traditional dentures. With this option, you never have to worry about your dentures sliding out of place!
