Dentures Procedure at Hebron Smiles in Carrollton, Tx Area
Losing a tooth as a child is adorable. However, when an adult loses a tooth, it is not cute and charming, and the loss of a permanent tooth can lead to more dental health issues. It is important to have the tooth, or teeth, replaced in a manner that provides the patient with the confidence he needs to smile brightly, speak clearly, and eat his favorite foods.

Denture treatment for missing teeth

Dr. Adnan Saleem in Carrollton, TX, helps his patients choose the right tooth replacement option for their budget, timeline, and lifestyle. Dentures are often selected to give patients a confident and happy smile. There are several types of dentures:

  • Partial Dentures: This type of denture is for patients who have only lost one or several teeth, but who have many strong and healthy teeth remaining. The replacement teeth are attached to a metal appliance, which looks a lot like an orthodontic retainer. The partial denture snaps quickly in and out of place and can be removed easily to clean the denture and brush the teeth.
  • Complete Dentures: A complete set of dentures are for patients who have lost their complete set of top or bottom teeth. They are created uniquely for the individual patient to give him or her a smile that is natural and original. Complete dentures can be held in place with dental adhesive or with dental implants. While the adhesive is the less expensive option, implants allow for a more comfortable fit and less worry about the dentures slipping or falling out of place.

After the procedure

The first several weeks after having your dentures placed is a bit of a learning curve. Patients must get used to having the dentures in their mouth and train the muscles in their mouth to work with the appliance. However, after only a few short weeks, the awkward feeling disappears, and patients have a beautiful, happy, and healthy smile.

Dr. Saleem will ensure a comfortable fit and will work with you to establish the proper at-home care for your new dentures. He will teach you how to thoroughly clean the dentures each day, and remind you to remove the dentures while sleeping, keep them in a safe place, and be cautious when handling the appliance.

If you have a missing tooth or if you are facing the extraction of several teeth and need to think about your tooth replacement options, call Dr. Saleem at Hebron Smiles at (972) 388-3320 to schedule a consultation.
