Today’s dentures use durable, lightweight materials and state-of-the-art design and technology for a fit that’s more comfortable and natural. Patients at Texas Dental in Plano, TX, receive custom-fit dentures for better oral health and greater self-confidence following tooth loss.
A complete denture is used to replace all the natural teeth on the upper or lower arch while a partial denture replaces just a few missing teeth (or even just one). Both complete and partial dentures use very durable, lightweight materials for a comfortable and secure fit.
A temporary denture is a denture that’s made to replace one or more missing teeth while a permanent denture, implant or bridge is being made in the lab. Temporary dentures attach with a wire to keep them secure.
Like their name implies, implant-secured dentures are dentures that attach to a dental implant, a medical-grade metal post that’s implanted into the jaw bone to keep dentures secure and prevent embarrassing slippage and painful sore spots.
Dentures begin with an impression of the patient’s mouth to provide a mold that can be sent to the lab where the partial or complete denture will be made. Several impressions may be made to provide the lab with different views of the mouth so the fitting and creation of the dentures can be optimized. The lab uses state-of-the-art materials and advanced technology to ensure the dentures are comfortable and natural-looking as well as functional. Once the dentures are ready, they will be carefully fitted and adjusted so they rest comfortably and securely on the gums.
Yes. Even if you have no remaining natural teeth, seeing the dentist on a regular basis is important for keeping the gums healthy and for being screened for oral cancer. Routine visits also allow the dentist to adjust your dentures over time so they continue to fit properly, preventing slipping, sore spots and potential infections.
No, they can be cared for with regular brushing using a soft brush. (Don’t forget to brush your tongue and gums as well.) Antiseptic mouthwash can also be used to destroy remaining bacteria. Dentures should be removed each night when sleeping and soaked to prevent them from drying out.
