Complete Your Smile With Dentures and Partial Dentures

Explore your denture options in Houston at Sinada Dental. A denture is a removable dental appliance and a replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, but it also prevents other teeth from shifting. Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

Conventional vs. Immediate Dentures

A complete denture can be either conventional or immediate. A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed (usually takes 4 to 6 weeks). During this time, the patient will go without teeth. 

Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.

Common Reasons for Dentures

There are several reasons why a patient may need dentures, including the following:

  • Loss of all teeth in an arch (complete denture)
  • Loss of several teeth in an arch (partial denture)
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion

What Does Getting Dentures Involve?

The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over a period of several weeks. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.

After your new dentures have been installed, it is normal to experience increased saliva flow, some soreness, and possible speech and chewing difficulty. However, these symptoms will subside as your muscles and tissues get used to the new dentures. You will be given care instructions for your new dentures. Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.

Dentures and Partial Dentures FAQ

Are dentures permanent?

Can I sleep in my dentures?

Will my dentures affect my ability to eat normally?

Are dentures permanent?

There are two different types of dentures: permanent and removable. Permanent dentures are a type of dental implant that will become a permanent part of your jawbone through a surgical procedure. Removable dentures, which are more common, typically last for around five to 10 years.

Can I sleep in my dentures?

While you can sleep while wearing your removable dentures, we typically recommend that you remove them before bed. This allows your gums and bone to relax for six to eight hours, which can be beneficial to your dental health in the long run.

Will my dentures affect my ability to eat normally?

When you first get your new dentures, you should expect an adjustment period, during which it may be a bit difficult to eat normally. However, you will gradually get used to your dentures, and after a while, you should have no problem eating or chewing. Ideally, you’ll want to refrain from eating hard or sticky foods while you’re still adjusting to your dentures.
