Replacing Missing Teeth With Dentures or Partials
If you have missing teeth, you may want to consider dentures or partials to improve your smile.
Restorative Dentistry to Replace Missing Teeth
We know that not everyone’s smile or mouth is the same. That is why we offer various dental solutions to suit our patient’s needs. We want you and your family to receive the best dental care and treatment from our McKinney Dentist team. To cater to your dental needs, our McKinney dentists offer four types of removable dentures: immediate, partial removable denture, Denture Fountain of Youth® dentures and implant supported lock-in dentures. Our McKinney dentists and team strive to meet you and your family’s needs and desires during your restorative dentistry office visits.
Our Removable Denture Options:
Our immediate dentures are just that—removable dentures that are placed the same day, at the same appointment, that the teeth are removed. Patients appreciate never going a day without teeth! During your first appointment, impressions of your teeth are taken, along with choosing the color and shape of your new removable denture. There will be times when you need adjustments and those are easy appointments. After 3-6 months, we perform a reline to refit your denture to your new gums and jaw contour.
McKinney dentists offer implant supported “lock-in” dentures. This requires a simple procedure that will lock-in your removable denture by using a customized combination of holding caps and snap-on components. Essentially, your removable dentures will be supported using multiple dental implants that pose as the tooth’s root! Thus, implant lock-in dentures eliminate the need for messy, irritating denture adhesive since they are now stable and non-shifting.
These are the highest quality, and the most customized removable dentures. Our patients consistently rave about how comfortable and well-fitting this type of removable denture is and how aesthetically-pleasing they look, too! Since dentures are positioned partially on muscle, our dentists evaluate the best position where your muscles are the most stable and relaxed, and where your bite position produces the best muscle function. All of these elements directly correlate with how well your dentures fit, and how naturally beautiful they look.
Another option is a partial removable denture that replaces one or more teeth, and is created from all-acrylic, or, for increased strength, acrylic with a metal base. As a less expensive alternative to attached bridges, and when there are not enough good teeth for fixed bridges, we recommend partials as the last option for tooth replacement. Patients must wear their partials throughout the day, but should be removed at night. This gives your gum tissue a break, and also helps prevent fungal infections.
Convenient In-House Lab
Rest assured, in case you ever experience problems with your removable dentures in McKinney, TX, we have our own in-house laboratory to assist you! Our McKinney dentists and team strive to meet you and your family’s needs and desires during your office visits. Tony and Jessica, our highly skilled lab technicians, directly communicate with patients to accurately fix any issues.
If you or a family member needs your removable dentures repaired, a reline completed, or any other restorative dentistry concern fixed, we will serve your needs. Our in-house laboratory is advantageous because we do not have to send your removable dentures to another location to get fixed— that means quick and easy service for you! However, if you find yourself frustrated by needing routine denture repair or relines, we offer a functional solution with dental implants! Esteem Dental Implants is a state-of-the-art full arch protocol we use to permanently replace an entire arch of teeth. With Teeth Tomorrow, you can leave your denture worries behind for good!
