TYPES OF DENTURES
Ft. Worth's Texas Denture Service works hard to find the right solution to your denture needs. Not everybody needs the same type of dentures and we are happy to be able to provide a wide range of dentures. Find out more about Dr. Murphy and his commitment to his patients.
A complete denture is a removable appliance used when you've lost all your teeth and you need them all replaced. Since a complete denture is made when there are no more teeth left in the mouth, your gums must totally support complete dentures. Texas Denture Service makes single dentures for one arch and full-set dentures for both arches.
With the passage of time, a patient's jawbone and soft tissue (gums) will undergo changes. Shrinkage will occur, resulting in the denture becoming looser and ill-fitting. A reline corrects this problem, refitting the denture, or partial denture, resulting in better retention and stability. Relines and simple repairs are provided as a same-day service.
An immediate denture is placed in the mouth immediately following the extraction of natural teeth. The advantage of this process is that it spares the patient the inconvenience and embarrassment of going without teeth while waiting for the mouth to heal before having dentures constructed.
aka "Snap-on" Dentures
An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn't have any teeth left in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap into place, which means your dentures stay in a whole lot better and are much more stable.
For some patients, a flexible partial denture is the best option for meeting their needs. Flexible partials are made of a material that conforms and adapts to the patient's soft tissues (gums). They do not contain any metal like conventional cast-metal partial dentures. This can be a cosmetic advantage when patients are concerned about smiling and displaying metal clasps that attach to the front teeth.
