When a patient is missing most or all of their permanent teeth, our dentist may suggest dentures in Dallas, Texas. These removable dental restorations can allow you to speak, smile, and eat properly again.
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are restorations that replace all of your missing teeth. A flesh-colored acrylic base sits over the gums. Replacement teeth are attached to this base. With the upper denture, the base also covers the roof of your mouth.
What Are Full Dentures?
Full dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, or after any remaining teeth have been removed. The gums and jaws may need up to several months to heal before dentures can be worn. Conventional dentures will be custom made specifically for your smile. There is another type of full denture called immediate full dentures. These can be worn immediately after any remaining teeth have been removed. However, these dentures must be realigned several months after you receive them. Many people use immediate dentures while waiting for their conventional dentures.
What Are Partial Dentures?
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. These dentures have a metal framework that attaches to your natural teeth.
