Dentures In Garland TX

Dentures in Garland TX

Dentures are removable dental appliances that replace missing teeth. They are designed to replace the entire upper or lower set of teeth or just a few missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures available at our dental practice: full and partial dentures.


Full Dentures

Full dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing. They rest on top of the gums, and they are held in place by suction and dental adhesive. Full dentures can be unsecured, or they can be secured using dental implants.


Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when some of the natural teeth remain. They attach to the teeth that are still present and fill in the space left by missing teeth. Partial dentures can be made using metal clasps, or they can attach to dental implants.


What are implant-secured dentures?


Implant-secured dentures are full dentures that are held in place by implant posts. These dentures have special attachments that snap onto the implants, so the dentures won’t slip or slide around while you eat, talk or laugh. Some implant-secured dentures use ball attachments, which consist of a ball inside a socket that snaps onto the implants. Other implant-secured dentures use bars that secure onto implants.


Are dentures a good option for me?


Dentures are a worthy option for patients of all ages. While they are most commonly thought of as a solution for older adults, many young people also lose their teeth or require extractions. If a tooth cannot be saved, a denture offers a replacement that is comfortable and natural-looking. Dentures are also removable, making them easy to brush and floss.


Typically, it takes about 4 to 6 weeks to get dentures. The process requires time for the dentist to take measurements, make a model of your teeth, and perform other procedures. The dentist will also make a series of appointments in order to make sure that your dentures fit properly.


Dentures are designed to fit comfortably and allow you to eat and speak normally. You may feel some soreness at first, but this should go away within a few days. Dentures can also be adjusted as necessary.
