Losing your teeth can compromise your health, appearance and overall quality of life; fortunately, at Houston, Vlosich and Short, DDS, our Amarillo dentist can replace missing teeth with customized, natural looking dentures, fixed bridges, and dental implants. We customize every treatment plan to address individual needs and utilize the highest quality materials to fabricate the most lifelike replacement teeth. Our compassionate team of professionals always keeps you informed and at ease, for worry-free care at every visit.
According to the American College of Prosthodontists, 120 million adults in the United States are missing at least one tooth, and 36 million are completely edentulous. 27% of people over the age of 65 do not have any remaining teeth. Losing your teeth can make it difficult to enjoy a varied, nutritious diet, to smile with confidence and to speak with ease. For some patients, dentures offer an effective option in care. A denture is a set of artificial teeth in a supportive, acrylic base, which fits over your gums to reestablish an attractive smile and highly functional occlusion. We can replace just a few missing teeth with a partial denture or a completely edentulous arch with a complete denture. Our Amarillo dentist will design your dentures to fit precisely and deliver the most aesthetically pleasing results. Our team will also help you adjust to wearing your new dentures and guide you on proper denture maintenance. In certain cases, dental implants can be placed to support a customized over denture, offering added stability without the need for denture adhesives.
Whether you’re visiting our Amarillo dentist for your first set of dentures or for ongoing denture care, you can expect personalized attention and gentle, compassionate treatment at every visit. At Houston, Vlosich and Short, DDS, we can improve your health and sense of wellbeing with quality prosthodontic care. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, call today.
