Dentures and Partials
There are many reasons why you should replace any missing teeth with some type of dental prosthetic. One reason is that your oral health can be severely damaged by missing teeth. Any remaining teeth can be caused to shift position, causing various associated problems and shifting the overall bite in your mouth. An off-bite can cause chronic headaches, jaw pain, and other symptoms generally associated with TMJ problems. And if you must have all of the teeth along an arch, it’s even more critical that you simply seek out some kind of tooth replacement. Fairview Dental in Allen, Texas is dedicated to offering a complete variety of dental prosthetics, including partials and dentures.
Both partial and complete dentures include a foundation made from plastic and formed to look like soft tissues with acrylic teeth set into the foundation. A partial denture may also contain a framework which helps hold it in place, while a complete denture relies on a mixture of denture adhesive and natural suction to stay put.
The denture procedure is pretty straightforward. We’ll take out any teeth that need extraction. We can provide an immediate denture, so that you have something to wear in the interim, while your permanent denture are being completed. One drawback to immediate dentures is that won’t be fit to your gums that are healed, and your gums may have changed after extraction. This is why we encourage our patients to wear a temporary denture while waiting for the permanent one. Your dentures can be made to a specific color, size, and fit that you want. Our top priority is for you to be comfortable and happy with your new dentures!
Our dentists will help you browse your tooth replacement alternatives with reliable advice. We won’t force you to make any particular selection, we will just guide you with our expertise.
