Completing Smiles with Dentures in Plano, TX
Did you know that 50 million Americans have lost all of their teeth? Missing teeth can compromise your wellbeing and negatively affect your self-image. Modern dentures revitalize your smile and give you back your active lifestyle.
Customized to fit your mouth, today's dentures look more natural and feel better than ever. If you have lost all your teeth, we will fit you for a complete set of dentures. For patients with remaining teeth, a partial denture will close the gaps left by one or more missing teeth on either arch.
Are you ready to regain a happy, healthy smile? Our team at Dental Renaissance would love to be your support in this goal. Contact our Plano, TX location today to schedule your first appointment with Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Pollard or Dr. Patel. We also welcome new patients from Richardson, Allen, and all over the DFW area.
Full dentures are designed to replace the entire top or bottom arch of teeth, and they’re able to stay in place within the patient’s mouth with the help of natural suction and/or denture adhesive. They’re removable, which means that patients can store them when sleeping and clean them much more conveniently. Both traditional and implant options are available, depending on the patient’s needs.
Partial dentures (also known as removable bridges) allow our team to replace certain missing teeth along a single arch without patients having to sacrifice healthy ones in the area. They are attached with the help of metal clips or brackets, and like full dentures, they’re removable. This design is a big help in preventing existing teeth from shifting to fill empty spaces over time.
Implant dentistry, the latest scientific method to replace missing teeth, lets us restore your mouth without the use of removable dentures. Instead, we secure implant dentures firmly to the jaw, allowing for improved comfort, chewing, and self-confidence. With implant dentures, you don't have to worry about slippage or messy adhesive creams. Because you need healthy bone tissue to support implant dentures, Dr. Blankenship, Dr. Pollard or Dr. Patel will evaluate your case to make sure you are a good candidate for this replacement option.
Even though they’re not your natural teeth, it’s very important to handle your denture with the utmost care. Brush and floss the prosthetic daily, using denture cleaner or mild dishwashing liquid in place of traditional toothpaste. When you’re not wearing the denture, always place it in a cup of denture soaking solution or room temperature water to keep it moist.
