Are your teeth loose and you want to see your restorative options? If so, dentures may be a good prosthetic solution for you. Our doctors in Sachse, TX, are able to guide you through your options and help you determine if dentures would be a good fit for your lifestyle.
What are dentures?
Dentures are a prosthetic device that is placed on top of your gums. They have teeth and a gum like appearance to mimic what your mouth would look like with teeth. They are not a perfect replacement for your missing teeth but their appearance is beautiful. You may consider getting implants to fully secure your mandibular dentures.
Dentures are more than just a full set. There are multiple types of dentures available to our Thrive Dental patients.
Partial dentures are made for the patients who still have some teeth remaining. The partial denture uses adjacent teeth to secure the prosthesis to your mouth.
When most people think of dentures they think of full full dentures. These are made for patients who have lost all of their teeth and need a full upper or lower set of teeth.
Implant retained dentures
Traditional dentures are good but implant retained dentures are better. The dentist will use implants to retain the dentures in place properly. This will allow the dentures to be more secure in your mouth.
