Dentures & Partials An Overview
Missing teeth can make eating and speaking difficult and embarrassing and can 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 the bite. Dentures and partials are traditional treatment options that offer patients a long term solution for missing teeth. Having dentures or partials can restore the function and beauty of your smile, giving you back the confidence you need and the ability to eat and speak without difficulty.
Today’s cosmetic dentures are far superior to traditional dentures or false teeth. Plano, TX dentist Dr. Jacob Grapevine takes time to meet with you and perform a comprehensive evaluation. Your cosmetic dentures will be designed to fit comfortably and look and feel like natural teeth. Dr. Grapevine will design full or partial dentures to fit your needs and have them crafted by expert ceramists at a trusted dental laboratory.
Dental Implant Supported Dentures
Dr. Grapevine also offers dental implant-supported dentures which is a permanent and effective way to replace all of your teeth. Implant supported dentures are more durable and comfortable than removable dentures. There is no risk of slippage and patients experience better bone retention with the dental implant procedure. Implant supported dentures use as few as two to four dental implants to anchor the denture in place.
Patients who choose dental implant supported dentures are able to enjoy the foods that they love and can speak comfortably. Depending on your specific case, Dr. Grapevine will select porcelain dentures or resin dentures to attach to the dental implants. Though some special care is required for implant supported dentures, it is far less than with traditional removable dentures.
