Dentures are partial or full sets of artificial teeth that are custom-made for your mouth and gums. They replace lost or removed teeth so that you can regain functionality and confidence. Once teeth are replaced, patients can eat, chew, speak and smile with ease. Depending on your needs, dentures may be the best option to regain your smile and get your oral health back on track.

A partial denture helps restore the form and function of your jaw by replacing one or several missing teeth. This removable, natural looking dental appliance is made from false teeth attached to thermoplastic resin, acrylic or a combination of acrylic and metal framework, which makes it sturdy enough to handle years of chewing and speaking. Keep in mind that our team is always here to assist you in selecting the right partial denture for your unique needs.
Full dentures are a replacement option when one has lost all or most of their natural teeth. These removable dental appliances are made out of acrylic and help restore form and function. Full dentures can help fill out your appearance, leaving you ready to smile with confidence again.
Implant supported dentures are an option for patients looking to replace a full set of teeth. This appliance functions more like natural teeth than conventional dentures and is secured to the jaw with a series of sturdy implants.
About 40 million Americans have lost all their teeth.
If you are interested in dentures as an option to replace your missing teeth, the first step is to get a consultation from your dentist in Allen. They’ll be able to examine your mouth and determine the state of your oral health and determine whether dentures are right for you. They can also help guide you on alternative treatments if there’s a better option available to you.
Your dentist will make an impression of your oral cavity, then send it to a laboratory to construct an acrylic model of your teeth. Once the dentures are made and received, your dentist will place them in your mouth and make adjustments so they fit properly and comfortably.
Not only can dentures restore your smile, they can make your appearance more youthful as well.
