When you lose some or all of your teeth, your facial muscles can begin to sag, and make you look older. Dentures can help keep your face looking youthful, restore full tooth functionality, and improve the look of your smile. Our dentures can be custom-made to closely resemble your natural teeth and won’t change your appearance. Dr. William Stewart offers different types of denture to his patients in San Antonio, and can give you the look you desire.
Implant-supported dentures are a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to dental implants. Regular dentures usually rest on the gums and are not supported by implants. An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support dental implants.
An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants. Implant-supported dentures are removable and easy to clean.
All on 4 Dental Implants
All-on-4 uses four titanium dental implants to anchor permanent dentures to the upper and/or lower jaw. This provides a strong foundation for prosthetic teeth, which are added afterwards. It is possible to replace all of your teeth in just one day. No bone graft is usually needed, dental implants can all be replaced on the same day as extractions, and All on 4 is easy to maintain. With All on 4 dentures, patients in San Antonio can enjoy immediate long lasting results.
San Antonio Custom Dentures
With dentures, comfort means customization. The more your dentures are customized to your gums, your mouth, your jaw, and your muscles, the more comfortable they will be. When you come to San Antonio dentist Dr. Stewart, your dentures are customized to fit every aspect of your bite. Before your dentures are crafted, Dr. Stewart will measure your mouth, your jaw, and your jaw muscles. This means your dentures will not only fit your gums and mouth, they will also fit your muscles. You won’t find yourself pulling out your dentures at every opportunity, because our custom dentures are comfortable to wear and comfortable to use.
Partial dentures are designed to correct the gaps in your smile when only some of your teeth are missing. Metal attachments are used to help anchor the dentures to your natural teeth. To help prevent your remaining teeth from shifting, partial dentures are used to maintain tooth alignment.
