Because each denture is custom-crafted to meet each patient’s unique needs and preferences, most adults who have lost several or all of their teeth are good candidates for dentures. In most cases, the two qualities Dr. Manny looks for are healthy gums and a dedication to practicing good oral hygiene. If you currently have gum disease or decay in your remaining teeth, our team will have to treat those problems before we can move forward with the denture process.
After your dentist in Temple, TX examines your mouth, he will recommend one of the following types of dentures based on his findings:
For patients who are missing multiple teeth throughout the mouth, a partial denture is often the ideal solution. Artificial teeth are attached to a pink base in the exact spots necessary to fill the gaps in your grin. Once the partial is secured behind your remaining teeth with metal clasps, other people shouldn’t even be able to tell that you lost any teeth at all! Plus, your partial is removable for easy cleaning.
If you’ve lost all of your teeth, a full denture can bring all of them back simultaneously. An entire row of prosthetic teeth is attached to a base that sits directly on the gums. Natural suction keeps it in place, but a bit of denture adhesive can make it even more secure. Like partials, full dentures can be taken out for hygiene purposes.
If you’d prefer a denture that stays in your mouth like real teeth, we can discuss implant dentures. A full or partial denture can be anchored onto a small number of dental implant posts that are surgically inserted into your jaw. Compared to the traditional variety, implant dentures restore greater chewing power, feel more natural, and last much longer.
