Having missing teeth can make eating and speaking a difficult task. It can also be very embarrassing and make you look much older than you are. Replacing missing teeth promptly and effectively can help you avoid the onset of additional dental problems, and changes in the fit of your bite. Dentures are a restorative dentistry treatment option for our patients in Plano, Texas.

Full dentures and partials are traditional treatment options that offer patients a long-term solution for their missing teeth. Getting new dentures or partial dentures can restore the function and beauty of your smile, give you the confidence you need, and restore the ability to eat and speak without difficulty.

Today’s cosmetic dentures that we provide at our office are far superior to traditional dentures or false teeth. Our dentist in Plano, TX takes the time to meet with you and perform a comprehensive evaluation. Dr. Grapevine will design your cosmetic dentures to fit comfortably in your mouth, and look and feel like real teeth. Our expert ceramists craft your new full or partial dentures at a modern and trusted dental laboratory.

The Denture Procedure

The denture process will require several visits with us for treatment planning, preparation, and the final placement of your new dental prosthetic. Dr. Grapevine will first take impressions and measurements of your mouth to create your custom dentures in a dental lab. We will make sure that the artificial teeth look as natural as possible. When they are ready, you will return to our Plano, TX dental office to try them on and make sure they fit properly.

At your final appointment, we will make the final adjustments and teach you how to properly care for your new teeth.

If we are placing dental implants to secure your denture, Dr. Grapevine will work with you to schedule the surgical phase of the procedure. You will need three to six months to heal from that surgery where the implants will permanently fuse with your jaw bone. After that, you will return to our Plano, TX dentist office for impressions and measurements to create your new dentures.

Once they are ready, Dr. Grapevine will permanently secure them to your dental implants.

We want your new smile to feel as good as it will look! Dr. Grapevine uses the latest techniques and materials for a custom denture that will not only complement your appearance but stabilize your long term dental health. Replacing lost teeth will give you back your quality of life and help to maintain your natural jaw structure.

Dental Implant-supported Dentures

Dr. Grapevine also offers dental implant-supported dentures, a permanent and effective way to replace all of your teeth. Denture implants offer more comfortable and lasting results when you have lost all of your top or bottom teeth. They are more durable and offer so many more benefits when compared to removable dentures. Many patients struggle with traditional dentures that slip around in their mouth leading to embarrassing situations.

There is no risk of slippage and patients experience better bone retention with the dental implant procedure. They allow patients to enjoy a diet without restriction and can help patients feel more confident in their smile.

Denture implants also eliminate the need for glues, adhesives, soaks, or rinses. Patients who choose dental implant-supported dentures are able to speak comfortably and enjoy the foods that they love without restrictions.

Depending on your specific case, Dr. Grapevine will select porcelain dentures or resin dentures to attach to the dental implants. Though implant-supported dentures may require some special care, it is far less than with traditional removable dentures. Implant-supported dentures use as few as two to four surgically placed dental implants to anchor the denture in place.

Denture FAQs

Does the complete denture procedure hurt?

No. Your dentist will first numb your mouth for your comfort. We will alleviate any pain you might be experiencing before the procedure. We can also offer oral sedation options for your comfort and for those that need dental anxiety relief.

Can dentures cause gum and oral health problems?

Yes. Old dentures that don’t fit like they used to can cause gum irritation, gum disease, premature facial sagging, and more issues. Old dentures can harbor bacteria that are tough to remove. Many patients with old dentures decide to replace them after about 8 years.

Will insurance cover the cost of implant-supported dentures?

Most dental insurance providers do not fully cover implant-related procedures. Some insurance companies believe that these treatments are unnecessary. However, we want everyone to be able to afford high-quality dental care, so we provide dental financing options and affordable dental implant services.
