Cottonwood Dental Professionals In Dentures In Irving, Texas

A denture is a dental appliance that can be removed and is used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are designed to look like your natural teeth and can even enhance your smile.

There are two main types of dentures: partial and complete dentures.

Partial dentures are used to fill in the gaps created by missing teeth and prevent other teeth from shifting. They are often made from acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal. This type of denture is a cost-effective alternative to a fixed bridge.

On the other hand, complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A complete denture can be either “conventional” or “immediate.”

What Is A Procedure For Dentures?

The process of getting dentures involves multiple appointments that can span over several weeks. During these appointments, highly precise impressions and measurements will be taken to create your custom denture. You may need to attend several “try-in” appointments to ensure that the denture’s shape, color, and fit are perfect. At the final appointment, your dentist will adjust and place the completed denture to ensure that it fits naturally and comfortably.

Initially, you may experience increased saliva flow, a little soreness, and difficulty speaking or chewing. However, as your muscles and tissues get accustomed to the new dentures, these issues will subside.

You will receive care instructions for your new dentures, including proper cleaning, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits, which will help extend the life of your new dentures.
