Dentures and Partials: Restore Your Smile with Dr. Loftus in Dallas, TX

Filed under: General Family Dentistry — Joseph Loftus DDS @ 9:00 pm

denturesIf you are missing multiple teeth, you know how it can negatively affect your daily life and interactions with others. You aren’t able to enjoy all of your favorite foods, and smiling in public settings can make you feel embarrassed due to the appearance of your incomplete dentition. At Joseph R. Loftus, DDS in Dallas, TX, Dr. Loftus and his team offer a variety of restorative dentistry solutions to help patients with missing teeth reclaim their healthy, beautiful smiles, including custom dentures and partials.

Smile with Confidence with Dentures and Partials

Partials and full dentures effectively perform the elemental functions you lose when you lose teeth. They allow you to chew food, speak more clearly, and smile with confidence. Because they are customized to fit your unique mouth shape and gums, these carefully crafted restorative prosthetics fit comfortably and look completely natural. A full denture replaces an entire arch of missing teeth while a partial denture acts as a sort of puzzle piece, filling in the gaps in your smile by replacing multiple teeth throughout the arch. Both are removable for easy cleaning and comfort.

For some patients, the option of implant-supported dentures appeals more to their lifestyle and expectations. This type of denture is retained within the mouth by dental implants, biocompatible posts that are surgically placed directly into the bone of the jaw. Dr. Loftus is always happy to discuss our wide variety of tooth replacement options with our patients, allowing them to play a vital role in the decision-making process regarding treatment.

Learn More About Dentures and Partials

Whether you currently wear a dental prosthetic or you are missing teeth and you’d like to learn more about your restorative dentistry options, we are here to help every step of the way. Contact our office in Dallas, TX today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Loftus. We look forward to helping you achieve optimal oral health and an improved quality of life overall. Our family-friendly dental practice happily welcomes patients from throughout Dallas and the Fort Worth area, including Richardson, Cedar Crest, Garland, Frisco, Plano, Addison, Irving, and more.

Filed under: Cosmetic Dentistry — Joseph Loftus DDS @ 8:57 pm

porcelain crownsThe placement of dental crowns is among the most commonly performed restorative procedures in America. Crowns effectively add structural stability and protection to a tooth that has sustained damage due to decay or injury. At Joseph R. Loftus, DDS in Dallas, TX, Dr. Loftus offers a variety of restorative dentistry procedures to help his patients maintain optimal oral health, including all-porcelain crowns for the most natural-looking results possible.

Benefits of All-Porcelain Crowns

Many dental crowns are manufactured using a combination of metal and porcelain, but this combination can often result in an unsightly dark area along the gum line. For the most lifelike results possible, Dr. Loftus offers all-porcelain crowns instead, providing durability and strength while still promoting a beautiful appearance.

When Dr. Loftus places a porcelain crown, he ensures that the size, shape, and color match your other teeth perfectly for a seamless smile that looks completely natural. You’ll leave our office feeling better than ever with a smile you can show off with confidence. Because porcelain crowns are made of such durable material, there is no need to alter your oral hygiene routine in any way; simply brush and floss as you normally would, and visit our office at least twice per year for regular checkups and cleanings.

Bring New Life to Your Smile with Dental Implants in Dallas, TX

Filed under: General Family Dentistry — Joseph Loftus DDS @ 8:54 pm

Dental ImplantsIf you are missing one or more teeth, you are certainly not alone. Tooth loss is more common problem than most Americans know, affecting millions of men and women between the ages of 20 and 64 alone. Fortunately, today’s advanced dental technology makes it possible to restore damaged and incomplete smiles with a restorative procedure that closely mimics natural teeth: dental implants. At the Dallas, TX office of Joseph R. Loftus, DDS, Dr. Loftus and his team offer dental implant restorations that look, feel, and function just like your natural dentition.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Whereas traditional dental prosthetics – including dentures, bridges, and partials – simply replace the part of your tooth that shows above the gum line, dental implants actually serve as replacements for the roots of your teeth. This is particularly important for both stability and the health of your jaw bone. Without a root to stimulate it, the bone tissue of the jaw deteriorates over time; this can lead to a variety of problems, including additional tooth loss.

When a dental implant is placed, the biocompatible titanium post serves as a new root to which a custom-crafted, aesthetically pleasing crown is affixed. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures, eliminating the need for messy adhesives. The end result is a newly revitalized smile and a natural bite, allowing you to eat your favorite foods freely and speak with comfort and confidence.

Schedule Your Consultation Today

Whether you have been missing one or more teeth for quite some time or you have an extraction planned, our team is here to help you with a variety of tooth replacement options, including dental implant restorations. Contact our office in Dallas, TX today to schedule your appointment with Dr. Loftus and our experienced, caring team. Our primary goal is to ensure your lifelong oral health, all while providing you with a gorgeous smile you can be proud of. Our family-friendly office is happy to welcome patients from throughout the DFW area, including Irving, Addison, Frisco, Richardson, Allen, Plano, and beyond.

Tooth-Colored Fillings Let You Smile with Confidence at Joseph R. Loftus, DDS

Filed under: General Family Dentistry — Joseph Loftus DDS @ 8:51 pm

Healthy GumsDental fillings provide invaluable strength and protection for teeth that have succumbed to decay or have been damaged due to injury. For decades, most fillings have been made of a combination of mercury and another metal, usually silver. Today, however, dental technology makes it possible to create strong, aesthetically pleasing fillings made from a tooth-colored composite, and Dr. Joseph R. Loftus offers this preferred method to his patients in Dallas, TX.

The Benefits of Tooth-Colored Fillings

When a filling is placed near the front of the mouth, it can easily be seen when the patient smiles or laughs. Metallic amalgam fillings are dark and unsightly, particularly when they are very large or within the smile zone. In addition, though continuing research still debates the subject, many patients and oral healthcare professionals contend that the mercury found in amalgam fillings may lead to potential health risks.

Fortunately, there is an alternative to silver and mercury fillings that is just as effective. Composite resin fillings are customized to match the color and shade of your natural teeth. The result is a beautiful, seamless smile that’s healthier and stronger than before. Whether you are in need of a new dental filling, or you’d like to have your old, dark metal fillings replaced with attractive, tooth-colored restorations, Dr. Loftus and his team are happy to help!

Enjoy the Best of Both Worlds with Tooth-Colored Fillings

With tooth-colored restorations from Dr. Joseph R. Loftus and his team, you’ll enjoy a beautifully revitalized smile that’s as strong as it is healthy. Contact our office in North Dallas, TX today to find out more about how easy it can be to replace your old, metallic amalgam fillings with cosmetically pleasing restorations today. Our family-friendly practice proudly serves patients from nearby neighborhoods in Plano, Allen, Richardson, Frisco, Addison, Irving, and beyond.
