Full & Partial Dentures
Do you have missing teeth? This problem is much more common than you might think, and nearly 120 million US adults are missing at least one tooth. That’s not great news either, but you shouldn’t feel like it's just you.
The question is not how you lost teeth but how your Garland Grove dentist can get you back to enjoying life again. Dr. Woo Sung Jung understands the impact that missing teeth have on your appearance, confidence, and quality of life. Our modern, customized full and partial dentures are comfortable to wear and enhance your facial features.
Dentures Customized for Your Smile
If you currently wear older removable dentures, you won’t believe how modern dentures have changed! Customized dentures at Garland Grove Dentistry are lighter, more comfortable, and more realistic looking than anything you've been wearing.
Don’t worry about a one-size-fits-all appearance, either. You and Dr. Jung will work together to customize dentures down to specific details like the location, position, and shade of each artificial tooth in a comfortable acrylic base.
Types of Dentures We Offer
Deciding to replace missing teeth in Garland, TX is a big step, so we want you to have options that fit your needs:
- Full dentures replace all missing teeth in an upper arch, lower arch, or both.
- Partial dentures are designed to fit in and around existing teeth.
- Implant dentures use dental implants to hold your dentures securely in place.
- Snap-on dentures use dental implants but are removable.
All of these have pros and cons, and Dr. Jung will explain them all to you. We’ll take our time with this step because we want you to be comfortable with whatever decision you make.
Snap-On Dentures, Affordable Tooth Replacement
Snap-on dentures are the step between removable dentures and implant dentures and replace all missing in your upper or lower jaw. This type of denture uses dental implants in your jaw to hold it securely in place.
Stability and retention are the biggest problems denture-wearers face. This is especially true with lower dentures that tend to be mobile because they don’t have much support.
Snap-on dentures in Garland, TX require at least two dental implants to hold them in place. Dr. Jung places the implants in your jaw bone and leaves them to heal for several months. Dr. Jung then adds special attachments to the implants that snap onto your customized dentures.
Your dentures are still removable so you can clean them and also clean the area around your implants. Snap-on dentures eliminate the need for messy adhesives that can be expensive and don’t work that well. You can eat, speak, laugh, and smile with confidence without your dentures moving around in your mouth.
Stabilizing Your Upper Denture
Since your upper jaw bone is softer and these dentures are larger, they’ll require four or more dental implants to hold them in place. Upper snap-on dentures offer phenomenal retention, and since there’s no plate covering your palate, speaking is easier, and your ability to taste may even improve.
Over time, the attachments on the implants may start to wear out. This is to be expected, but it’s an easy process to replace them to restore stability to your denture. The dentures themselves will need to be relined or replaced at our Garland, TX dental office every three to five years.
