If you have had years of dental problems or are embarrassed by your teeth, our trust-building team at Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry can help you find the restorative dentistry procedure right for you. You could be a candidate for implant supported dentures or dental implants.
A replacement for missing teeth, dentures can be made in advance and positioned as soon as the natural teeth are removed. Our Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry dental lab creates restorations that look just like natural teeth: attractive, healthy teeth.
If you still have some healthy, natural teeth, you can benefit from implant supported dentures without having your healthy teeth extracted.
Partial dentures fill in the gaps, replacing missing teeth to complete a smile. Partial dentures can prevent natural teeth from moving. Many Fort Worth dental practices can complete these procedures in one day.
Another alternative for Fort Worth people with missing teeth is to receive dental implants. A dental implant is a permanent tooth restoration that is anchored into the jawbone, actually replacing both the root and crown of the tooth. Dental implants have many advantages, such as preventing jaw bone recession which can occur when natural teeth are removed. However, not all Fort Worth restorative dentistry patients are good candidates for implants. Call Stephen Ratcliff, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry at 817-274-7875 for a dental implant consultation.
Dental implants can also be used to anchor a removable denture. The denture is ‘snapped on’ or attached to the implants for no-slip confidence.
The combination denture/implant smile restoration solution is being used successfully by many Fort Worth dentists. It is usually more affordable than dental implant replacements for several natural teeth.
Replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health, improving your ability to eat and speak. If you are embarrassed to smile or laugh, it’s time to bring back your beautiful smile!
