I’m missing teeth. How important is it that I get them replaced?

Missing teeth might seem like a cosmetic issue, and it can actually be pretty easy to put off doing anything about this problem. But even if the look of missing teeth hasn’t motivated you to have them replaced, you should know that tooth loss can make a serious impact on the health of your mouth. When you lose teeth, it causes the structure or your mouth to weaken. Other teeth will begin to move, causing problems with your bite. And missing teeth can cause problems with your jaw health. So what can you do about missing teeth? Family Smiles Dental Group offers crown and bridge, dentures and partials, and dental implants at our Flower Mound dental office.

What is a dental implant and how long do they last?

Dental implants provide you with a good alternative to dentures, partials, and bridges. First, titanium anchors are placed in the jawbone. Then a handcrafted, permanent crown is attached to the anchor. The restorations will match your teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile. How long they last depends on your age, oral health status, and hygiene habits, but with proper care, they can last for years to come. Dr. Nichols can both place the titanium dental implant posts and provide the implant restorations in her Flower Mound dental office. This procedure delivers natural-looking, comfortable, safe, and reliable tooth replacement.

My denture comes loose sometimes, causing discomfort and embarrassment. What can I do?

Schedule a visit with Dr. Jenifer Nichols in her Flower Mound dental office to discuss problems with your denture. Over time, the shape of your mouth changes, causing dentures that previously fit to become loose. We can create a new denture, modify your current denture to better fit your mouth, or even provide you with dental implants that will hold your denture in place.

I suffer with dental damage, but I don’t want to get dental work done that looks unnatural. Can you help?

Dr. Nichols doesn’t believe in rebuilding damaged smiles only to have the dental work be obvious. Everything we do looks natural and provides cosmetic-quality results. Tooth-colored fillings, ceramic dental crowns, and dental implant restorations, and natural-looking fixed dental bridges will leave your smile looking nothing but flawless.

I’m looking for a dental office that will see my entire family. Do you see kids?

Yes! We love to see kids at Family Smiles Dental Group — that’s why we named our practice Family Smiles! We’ll gladly begin seeing your children around the age of 3 for regular dental checkups, earlier if any problems emerge. We can provide dental sealants and fluoride treatments that help your children avoid cavities as they grow.

Do you provide financing options?

We want everyone to have access to the dental care they need. That’s why we accept CareCredit, a third-party financing option that offers no interest and long-term dental financing options for those who qualify. To learn more about CareCredit and apply, visit www.carecredit.com.
