    The Denture Process

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Dentures are a useful dental resolution to your difficulties chewing, biting, or even smiling. Keep reading to find out what to expect from the denture creation process at Webster Dental Care.

    • Reasons for Dentures
      The use of dentures is a popular dental solution for damaged or missing teeth. Dentures allow you to conveniently remove your replacement teeth at your leisure. Dentists have been recommending dentures for decades, but the latest technology allows your dentures to appear like a natural, full mouth restoration.
    • Consultation
      After deciding that dentures are right for you, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Michael White or Dr. David Krobath at Webster Dental Care. During your dental visit, you’ll discuss your oral hygiene habits and other restoration solutions to decide if dentures are right for you. You’ll also determine whether complete or partial dentures are appropriate for your dental health. Complete dentures are used for bare gum lines where all of your teeth have been removed. If you only have a few missing teeth, then partial dentures can fill in the empty spaces. Partial dentures also prevent your healthy teeth from shifting due to your removed teeth. If you have any questions about caring for your dentures, then bring them to your consultation visit.
    • Dental Molds
      The following appointment includes several dental molds of your mouth. The amount of molds and duration of this visit depends on whether you’ve chosen complete or partial dentures. Complete dentures are created after your dentist has removed any remaining teeth from your mouth. Partial dentures are produced before your teeth have been removed so that they’re ready for immediate use. If you’re concerned about time without teeth between your procedure and the receipt of your dentures, then partial dentures minimize your time without teeth.
    • What to Expect
      After your teeth have healed, you can begin wearing your new dentures. Your dentist will likely remind you what to expect with your new dentures and how to care for them during your follow-up appointment.

    What are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

    Last updated 2 years ago

    If you’re searching for the ideal tooth loss solution to restore your confident smile, then consider dental implants! A relaxing dental implant treatment from Webster Dental Care offers you the following immediate and long-term benefits.

    • Protect Healthy Teeth
      Many dental restoration techniques put the surrounding healthy teeth at risk. Dental implants protect your existing teeth from shifting or being affected by your missing tooth while simultaneously filling your oral gap. Dental implants are firmly rooted in your jaw instead of being anchored to surrounding teeth. A dental implant is a long-term oral solution to restore your smile and preserve your healthy teeth.  
    • Provide Dental Support
      If you have other dental work, such as bridges or dentures, then dental implants can improve your treatment results. Dental implants provide a durable, healthy tooth as an anchor for a dental bridge. Complete dentures can also be better supported by dental implants for increased comfort.
    • Customize Your Treatment
      During your dental implant consultation for your oral treatment, your dentist will communicate with you and your periodontist. Based on your dentist visits and oral hygiene habits, your dentist and periodontist will create a unique treatment plan. Whether you need one dental implant or a full mouth restoration, your general dentist at Webster Dental Care will meet your dental health needs with an expert treatment plan.
    • Improve Your Dental Functioning
      By choosing dental implants for your restoration needs, you’ll notice improved oral functioning almost immediately. A dental implant completes your natural smile, allowing you to speak more clearly and confidently. A full, healthy mouth also improves your chewing abilities and overall dental comfort.

    Dental implants offer immense advantages for any patient afflicted with damaged or missing teeth. If you live in the St. Louis area, then schedule your appointment at Webster Dental Care today by calling (314) 266-2249.

    Inlay vs. Onlay Restorations

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Does your smile need a makeover? Before visiting Dr. Michael White at Webster Care Dental for your general dentistry needs, read on to learn how inlay and onlay dental restorations can help.

    Dental Restorations

    Placing fillings over your teeth restores your mouth to its natural, healthy state. Both onlay and inlay dental restorations are used for minor dental traumas and tooth decay damage. Unsightly or broken teeth aren’t the only reasons for a dental restoration procedure. Consult your dentist about enhancing your smile through a cosmetic dental restoration. With proper oral care and regular visits to the dentist, your durable filling will last for years, continuing to improve your smile.

    The Onlay Technique

    Onlay dental restorations consist of a composite filling. Your dentist may use restoration materials that include natural looking porcelain and gold. Onlay restorations are best applied to teeth with defective fillings or that have been damaged by trauma. Instead of choosing a crown, ask your dentist about an onlay restoration that removes less of your natural tooth. When scheduling your restoration procedure, you’ll need to schedule two appointments. At your first visit, your dentist will take comprehensive molds of your teeth to create a unique restoration filling. Your dentist will cement your dental restoration onto your tooth, after ensuring it fits comfortably, during your second appointment.

    The Inlay Method

    The inlay restoration method is very similar to the onlay technique, except it provides less coverage. Onlay dental restorations cover the damaged chewing grooves of your teeth. If your chewing cusps are intact, then choosing a less aggressive inlay dental restoration is your best solution. Just like onlay restorations, your inlay procedure will require two appointments. After fitting your mouth to the gold, composite, or porcelain filling during your first appointment, your dentist will begin preparing your teeth for your second appointment by cleaning away decay, plaque, or remains of your previous filling. Now, your tooth is ready for its restoration treatment.

    If you have more questions about inlay and onlay dental restorations, then call the general dentists at Webster Dental Care. Schedule your full mouth restoration appointment today by calling (314) 266-2249.
