Dentures are natural-looking replacement teeth that are removable. Dentures replace permanent teeth. There are two main types of traditional dentures: full and partial.

Full dentures are an option for patients when all of their natural teeth have been removed. Conventional full dentures are placed after the gum tissue has healed, which can take several months. Partial dentures are attached to a frame that connects to natural teeth and is used to fill in the space where permanent teeth have been removed or lost.

At first, wearing dentures requires some getting used to in terms of talking and eating, as the dentures settle in the space formerly occupied by the teeth, but over time, the muscles and nerves of the mouth learn to work in new ways, which allows these functions to occur normally. Dentures also help support the jawline, lips and cheeks, which can help create a more youthful appearance.

Fixed dentures are an alternative to traditional dentures. Because they are fixed in place, they cannot be easily dislodged or fall out, they are more stable and do not rub the gum line and cause soreness, and they are the most natural looking and feeling of tooth replacement options.

Most patients prefer fixed dentures over traditional dentures because they:

  • Look, feel and function just like natural teeth
  • Don't slip when you eat or talk
  • Prevent bone loss in the jaw
  • Last a lifetime

Traditional and fixed dentures, just like natural teeth, require maintenance to stay clean and keep bacteria from growing inside of your mouth. That includes making sure your gums are healthy. A regular dental check-up at your local Dental Care of Texas is also important.

What our patients say

I have been going to Dental Care of Texas for a little over a year now, and I love it. They get you back and all fixed up in a jiffy. I am currently in ortho too and they are getting my teeth exactly where I want them to be. The prices are great and the staff are the best. I would and do recommend Dental Care of Texas to everyone I know.

I have nothing but great things to say about Dental Care of Texas. Definitely most affordable around the area, and also have payment plans that help single moms like myself. Staff is always nice and very helpful. I have another kid that's going to need braces soon and I will be returning to Dental Care of Texas, without a doubt.

Been with this dentist office for 18 years! This office has not much of a turnover, and that says a lot; mostly same staff for years. The front office staff has been very helpful and knowledgeable when it comes to scheduling my appointments or working with my insurance, and I know I can trust the care I receive from their hygienists and dentists. All of that is really just a bonus to the awesome convenience of being able to go in on a Saturday!
