Dentures & Partial Dentures Dallas
With dentures, you can get back to your confident, normal life even after the loss of your teeth. After tooth loss, the muscles and soft structures of your mouth can deteriorate if you don't replace your teeth with properly-fitted dentures. Offering only the most advanced removable dentures to best fit you, Dr. Hamlett will guide you every step of the way. Our team creates custom dentures made for you and helps you select the shade and shape. You walk away with great fitting dentures that look just like real teeth and which allow you to eat normally and smile confidently.
Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a dental bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The denture is removable and designed to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural looking smile, while still remaining functional. The partial denture is important once the teeth have been removed to preserve the bone and to keep existing teeth from tilting and growing in towards the gaps.
Although dentures and partials are a great way to replace missing teeth and prevent jawbone deterioration there are other options available. Dr. Hamlett is certified to treat tooth loss patients with dental implants and implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and are effective because they form a bond with the jaw. This process, called osseointegration, allows the dental implant to have to most secure and natural fit possible.
Implant-supported dentures are also a good option for patients who want dentures that are held in place by implants. With this procedure only a few implants are implanted in the jawbone and the dentures are secured to the implants. The result is dentures that won’t slip, allow you more flexibility in eating and added prevention in the onset of jawbone deterioration.
