A perfect smile guaranteed
Are you missing your teeth? Dentures are a cost-effective and reliable solution for your problem. DaVinci Dentistry & Implants specializes in custom-fitting dentures that are tailored to your needs.
What are Dentures?
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. To ensure you have various options for your dental needs, we offer partial, complete, temporary dentures and snap-on dentures.
So, which one is right for you?
What Kinds of Dentures are Available at DaVinci Dentistry & Implants?
DaVinci Dentistry & Implants offers different types of dentures: partial, complete, temporary or snap on. Depending on your current condition, our doctors will be able to guide you in choosing the best option for you.
A partial denture can be the best option to replace missing teeth. The wireframe that supports your dentures and keeps them in place is held in place by a plastic base. It can be colored to match your gums.
DaVinci Dentistry & Implants offers consultation and advice on whether a partial or full denture is the right option for you.
A complete denture procedure may be an option for you if you have suffered trauma or have a medical condition. The technology has improved the functionality and fit of dentures over the years. This has made it more efficient and effective.
Modern dentures are comfortable and natural-looking. DaVinci Dentistry & Implants will schedule an appointment to assess your teeth and gums and determine if a full denture is right for you.
Complete dentures are made by a dentist who removes all your teeth and cleans your gums. The patient should allow their gums to heal for 12 weeks before they can receive the fitting of their dentures.
Some patients may require an immediate denture as soon as the surgery is complete. This allows them to skip the 12-week wait period. DaVinci Dentistry & Implants is able to provide a quick solution. However, you will need to have a few follow-ups for adjustments as your gums heal.
We also provide temporary denture solutions for our patients. Temporary dentures offer you a dental solution while you are receiving cosmetic dentistry to replace missing teeth.
With a temporary denture, you receive the benefit of a natural smile while waiting for Da Vinci Dentistry & Implants to complete your dental implants or bridge. Temporary dentures are an excellent solution for patients that lose a tooth playing a contact sport or in an accident that involves trauma to the teeth.
A temporary denture secures in place using a wire that operates similarly to a retainer. You can remove the temporary denture whenever you want. If you need an immediate temporary solution to a missing tooth, call our office today and we will be happy to help!
A complete set of dental implants is the best option for missing teeth. However, it can be difficult for many to afford. A snap-on denture is an acceptable compromise.
With snap-on dentures, two dental implants are placed in jawbones near the front of the mouth. These are then fitted with snap-on attachments for dentures.
The snap-on dentures snap in so they are secure but can be easily removed for cleaning. You won’t lose your normal chewing ability, there will be no worries about loose teeth, and you won’t have the lisp that is associated with loose teeth.
Snap-on dentures are secure and comfortable.
Another benefit is that having implants in the jawbone help preserve bone and prevent facial collapse, which can occur with removable dentures.
Snap-on dentures are very affordable, as it only requires two dental implants to be placed.
What does DaVinci Dentistry & Dental Implants do to your dentures?
Southlake residents should make an appointment at DaVinci Dentistry & Implants to have their gums and teeth evaluated. An experienced dentist will examine your gums and teeth to determine if dentures are a good option for you.
If you are eligible, your dentist might recommend other options for dentures. Your dentist will give you a detailed breakdown of the type and reasons for dentures that you require.
DaVinci Dentistry & Implants will take several impressions of your gums and teeth after the initial consultation. The impressions are sent to the dentistry labs, where engineers use special modeling and production equipment for your new dentures.
What are the advantages of dentures?
Patients who receive dentures from DaVinci Dentistry & Implants often have a life-changing moment when their dentures fit properly and are used for the first time.
Patients who had to stop chewing on one side or the other of their mouths because of a missing or broken tooth now have full access to their mouths for eating.
The non-invasive option of replacing your teeth with dentures is available.
What are the drawbacks to dentures?
Fitting dentures can feel different from your natural teeth. This is the biggest drawback. Although dentures offer great functionality, they are still necessary to be maintained and cared for by you.
Modern production techniques and improved modeling have made dentures more comfortable, but they might still need to be adjusted for a better fit.
Old dentures may become loose while speaking or eating. DaVinci Dentistry & Implants can help you if your dentures are having trouble. Call (817) 251-9333 to schedule a consultation.
What are the best care practices for my new dentures?
Dentures can be difficult to clean. DaVinci Dentistry & Implants recommends that patients thoroughly rinse their dentures with a denture brush. This will clean the denture of food particles and allow it to dry completely.
After cleaning, rinse your denture once more and let them soak in warm water overnight before you attach them to your mouth.
Complete your daily oral hygiene routine by brushing your tongue and gums with a soft toothbrush and toothpaste.
Now that you understand your options when it comes to dentures, don’t hesitate to call our office and schedule an appointment. We will be happy to help!
