Individualized dentures are an efficient method for restoring lost teeth. These prosthodontic restorations make it simpler to speak and eat with self-assurance and also even improve the look of your smile after tooth loss. Gabrielle Dizon is experienced with full and partial detachable and implant-held dentures for patients in Dallas, TX. Single-arch dentures take the place of each of the teeth in the top arch, lower arch, or both, whereas partial dentures are utilized when a few of the patient's teeth still remain intact in the jaw. At Preston Hollow Dental Care, we can help you determine whether detachable or implant-held dentures are ideal for your needs and have them custom-crafted for a pleasant appearance and secure fit. Reach out to us for your restoration assessment soon.
Types of Dentures
Adapting to each patient's unique requirements is critical to us. This is why our Dallas, TX team provides several individualized denture styles for tooth replacement:
- Removable partial dentures take the place of empty spaces left by a single or many missing teeth. They are kept in their position by conveniently fastening around close by teeth.
- Detachable single-arch dentures take the place of a whole upper or lower arch and are retained by the contour of the jaw or a denture adhesive.
- Implant-retained dentures fill in for several or a full arch of teeth. These restorations attach to dental posts in the jaw for increased dependability.
- Immediate full dentures are put in right after the existing teeth are removed. The fit of these restorations can be altered as the gums heal.
- Conventional complete dentures are positioned when teeth are already missing and the oral cavity is completely healed.

Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
Great candidates for getting dentures are people who are missing multiple teeth or are going to have teeth taken out. Dentures can enhance your dental capabilities, allow you to consume healthy foods, and help maintain the shape of your face. These restorations work best when the gum tissues are healthy and there is an adequate amount of bone mass for support. During your visit, our staff will examine your mouth and review your possible treatments based on your dental issues, cosmetic preferences, and budget. Using this information, our professionals will be able to help you figure out if dentures are ideal for your dental health and which style may properly suit your unique situation.
What Is the Denture Process?
Our team will start the restoration process by making digital or molded impressions of the upper and bottom arches. These impressions are then relayed to a special dental lab; from there, they will craft your customized dentures. Complete and partial dentures use light resin, which may be supported by a titanium inner structure. Created with high-grade biocompatible materials, dentures are intended to replicate the look of native teeth and gum tissues. Once your appliances are finished and arrive at Preston Hollow Dental Care, we will have you follow up for a fitting consultation. Gabrielle Dizon will alter your appliances so they fit securely or latch them to previously positioned oral posts. A member of our team will also go over the appropriate ways to maintain your personalized dentures.
Caring for Your Tooth Replacement
Carrying out your normal functions, including eating and speaking easily, might require a few weeks; however, they will be easier as you adjust. Whenever your dentures feel like they are shifting around, get in touch with Preston Hollow Dental Care so our team can plan a modification follow-up. You will be shown how to care for your dentures by cleaning them using a soft brush after every meal and soaking them in water at night to prevent them from drying out. We encourage you to come to our office for regular checkups so a member of our team can keep track of the state of your dentures and your general dental health for many years to come.
Are Dentures Covered by Insurance?
Full or partial dentures could be paid for in part under many dental insurance programs. Our team will reach out to your insurance company to assess your fullest coverage; when this happens, we will calculate any extra expenses. At your appointment, we will cater your treatment program so your restorations fit both your requirements and finances. To help make the tooth restoration process affordable, Preston Hollow Dental Care takes multiple kinds of payments, such as medical financing.
FAQ About Dentures
1. What are dentures made of?
Dentures are made of a hard resin, which makes them durable. Dentures are generally more fragile than natural teeth and can chip and crack, which makes it important to care for them properly. The support that holds the teeth in place is also made of a resin material or a flexible polymer material that is custom-made to fit snugly around the natural gum line. A new set of dentures is usually needed about every five years.
2. What are some benefits of wearing dentures?
Dentures can improve the appearance of your smile and help maintain the structure of your mouth. This makes it easier to talk and chew naturally. Dentures are a great solution for patients looking to replace teeth that may be causing oral health issues.
3. How are dentures applied?
First, the patient’s mouth is prepared with a routine cleaning, the filing of natural teeth, or even with tooth extractions. This process will vary from patient to patient. After the mouth is ready, digital x-rays are taken, which are sent to a dental lab to create the custom dentures. Temporary dentures are worn until your permanent restoration is ready. Adjustments are made to create a more comfortable and secure fit.
4. Will I have to change my diet when I have dentures?
Generally, you will be able to eat normally, however, it may take time to get used to eating comfortably with dentures. Denture adhesive can help to stabilize your dentures so they stay in place while you’re going through the adjustment period.
5. How do I clean my dentures?
You should clean your dentures daily much like your natural teeth. This is because bacteria, plaque, and tartar can build on them leading to diminished oral health. To clean them, remove your dentures from your mouth and run clean water over them. This rinses off any leftover food particles. Next, brush them with a denture cleaner or mild soap and a denture brush. Never use regular toothpaste as it is too abrasive, which can lead to needing to replace your dentures sooner than the usual five-year time period. Always rinse them well after cleaning.
