Who is a Good Candidate for Dentures?

Dentures are an excellent option for people who are missing several, most of, or all of their teeth. No one wants to have to worry about eating, speaking clearly, or feeling too embarrassed to show off their smile due to tooth loss. Depending on the location and number of your missing teeth, we will create a personalized plan to help you achieve a natural-looking smile that is both functional and comfortable. If you have existing dental issues, like tooth decay or periodontal disease, these will need to be treated before you can move ahead in the process of getting dentures. This way, your new smile will be healthy!

Types of Dentures

There are a few different types of dentures available to cater to people’s needs. During your consultation with us, we’ll help you to determine which one is best for you. Here are the different types:

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are designed to help patients who need to replace just a few missing teeth located throughout the mouth. They’re composed of multiple prosthetic teeth positioned along a special gum-colored base that is held in place by clips or brackets that loop around neighboring teeth. Because partials are removable, they can easily be cleaned after meals. They’re able to replace both consecutive and non-consecutive missing teeth at the same time, and they basically fit into the smile like the piece of a jigsaw puzzle.

Full Dentures

A full denture is also removable but is designed to replace an entire row of teeth and is secured by either natural suction, an over-the-counter denture adhesive, or multiple dental implants. They too consist of prosthetic teeth attached along a gum-colored base. To ensure the perfect fit, Dr. Caballeros will have a patient try on multiple mock-up dentures while he is designing their final prosthetic.

Implant Dentures

If you want a stable, longer lasting denture, implant dentures may be the solution. We will first place a series of dental implants throughout the jawbone before attaching the customized restoration. With this type of restoration, you can expect approximately 70% of your natural chewing function to be restored. It’s designed to last for decades with proper maintenance and care, so you do not need to worry about having your denture replaced periodically. To make a good candidate for implant dentures, you need to have a strong jawbone to support them. This will all be discussed during your initial consultation.

Dentures FAQs

Learning all about the different types of dentures in Carrollton is an important first step in determining whether this modern, lifelike tooth-replacement option is right for you. With that being said, it is completely natural to still have some questions on your mind. Since many of our patients prefer to do their research online, we’ve responded to a few of the most frequently asked ones here. Of course, if you would prefer to speak directly with our team, don’t hesitate to request an appointment!

Can I Eat Normally With Dentures?

Since modern dentures are crafted from high-quality, incredibly durable materials, you can eat normally with dentures. However, there typically is a bit of a learning curve, which is why sticking to soft foods, like yogurt and applesauce, is ideal in the beginning. Once you master the movement, you can work your way back to your normal diet. Just be cautious of hard and sticky foods, which have the potential to crack or otherwise damage your prosthetic teeth.

Will My Partial Dentures Match My Remaining Natural Teeth?

The last thing you want is to fill the gaps in your smile with a fake-looking prosthetic that sticks out like a sore thumb. Fortunately, you don’t have to! Since dentures aren’t a one-size-fits-all solution for advanced tooth loss, you can have peace of mind the end result will be seamless. Whether you are missing several teeth or an entire arch, each prosthetic tooth is meticulously crafted to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth. In short, your partial dentures will absolutely match the teeth that are still intact.

What If My Dentures Become Loose?

One drawback of dentures is that they aren’t able to stimulate your jawbone like dental implants. Therefore, as your jawbone begins to deteriorate, your facial structure will change over time, causing your dentures to become loose. That’s why your routine adjustment appointments are so important! These visits allow us to ensure your restoration fits snugly against your gums for a natural-looking smile and strong biteforce.

How Do I Care For My Dentures?

Caring for your dentures properly is an essential component of prolonging their lifespan. To ensure they last 10+ years, make sure to clean them daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture-friendly cleaner. It is also important to soak partial and full dentures nightly in a glass of water, which will preserve their shape as you sleep. Next, always handle your dentures with care anytime they are out of your mouth to prevent them from accidentally falling to the floor or being misplaced altogether. It is also a good idea to avoid poor dental habits, like smoking and chewing on ice. Lastly, visit our team routinely for dental checkups and cleanings.
