Problems with Dentures & Our Solutions

 
Problem #1

Problem #1

An “aging” face showing lines all around the mouth, exaggerated creases at the corners of the mouth, sagging cheeks and a deep crease between the lower lip and the chin.

Solution: Cosmetic Dentures… How can dentures improve the aging face? They re-establish the cheek and lip support that has been lost. Also, they “open up” the bite, increasing the vertical height lost because of the wearing away of the chewing surfaces on the dentures (the back teeth are flat due to the wear) and the loss of bone density beneath the dentures. Cosmetic Dentures are created first in wax, providing you with an opportunity to try them out. At this “try-in” we can adjust the tooth size, whiteness or tooth position, or even alter the denture to be longer, fuller, wider or smaller, giving you that “special personalized look” and correcting any facial support has been lost over time.

Problem #2

Problem #2

Poor bone support on the ridge underneath your upper or lower denture. Does your denture move about when you talk, eat or laugh? Do you have problems eating the “crunchy” foods that you love?

Solution: Implant Supported Permanent Teeth can be utilized to permanently and strongly secure a denture or partial so that it can’t move or get food under it. They provide you the option of eating anything that you want. Need more information? Click on the “Implant Supported Denture Solutions” button at top of page.

Problem #3

Problem #3

Dentures have been worn for MANY years and much of the bone has worn away. Many patients in this situation insist they can chew better without the lower denture in their mouth than with it. Restricted diet, sore mouth, the list goes on and on… A lot of patients we see have been informed they can’t have traditional implants.

Solution: Mini-Implants. These implants of a smaller dimension can be placed in areas of great bone loss where regular implants can’t. “Mini’s” can be placed in a location with as little as a 3-4 mm width of bone. They also offer a cheaper way to solve your denture problems. We’ve even used mini’s to stabilize a partial denture that simply won’t “Stay Down”. To learn more about mini-implants, click on the button at the top of the page entitled “Mini-Dental Implants”.

Problem #4

Problem #4

Loose or sore teeth past the point of saving.

Solution: Immediate Dentures. Immediate dentures are used for patients whose teeth have become loose or sore and can no longer be saved because of tooth decay or periodontal disease. Removing the teeth and replacing them with a denture could be the best way to prevent infection and to restore health to the mouth. An immediate denture is created in advance and placed within the mouth on the same day as the extractions. Once the mouth has fully healed the immediate denture is realigned and adjusted to fit comfortably within your mouth. An advantage of immediate dentures is that the patient won’t be without teeth throughout the healing period. However, bones and gums can sometimes shrink over time, especially during a period of healing within the initial six months after the removal of teeth. When gums shrink, immediate dentures could require rebasing or realigning to fit correctly. No need to cover up your smile!

 

Do you currently wear dentures? Take a few moments and ask yourself…

  • Have you ever eaten in a restaurant and had a seed get stuck under your denture? Ever wondered how to fix it without anyone noticing?
  • At a restaurant, do you choose the food that you actually want? Or do you choose food that you can eat without anyone noticing your dentures?
  • Would you like to be able to enjoy corn on the cob? A crunchy apple? A juicy steak?
  • Do you feel self-conscious when you chew, talk or drink?
  • When you place your back teeth together, do your muscles or your jaw joint feel painful, tight or cramped?
  • Do you try to keep your front teeth together?
  • Have you developed nervous habits with your lips and cheeks to try to control your dentures or to keep them in place?
  • What would you say if you could eat anything that you wanted and NEVER have to worry again about the food you should order from the menu?
 

Why Choose Dallas Texas Dentures?

Up until around 20 years ago, having dental work completed was a “less than comfortable” experience. Many procedures, such as extracting teeth, relied on brute force as the latest and best technique. Things have changed a lot since then, and new methods remove the manhandling that was once a necessity. Have you heard the expression, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?” It’s shameful, but some dentists are still stuck in their old ways, refusing to accept any change. However, it needn’t be that way. There is now no reason to connect dentistry with pain! We have decades of experience in the field of cosmetic dentistry and are proud to be featured in the following dental publications: Links Health Care, DentalDot and Big Health Directory.

 

Let’s hear words from a few of the patients that we’ve helped

  • SO VERY PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS

     "I want to thank you for making my implant procedure such wonderful experience. I am so very pleased with the results, not only esthetically but mentally as well. In summation, you and your practice exemplify the words PROFESSIONAL and CARING. Anything that was remotely uncomfortable during this process was remedied by your quick witt! Thank you for all that you have done for me, there are no words to tell you how much I appreciate it."

  • MY NEW TEETH

     "I had dentures for 35 years. We went to the state fair this year and I had taffy and a candy apple for the first time! I forget that they're there (my new teeth). I was actually able to bite into an apple. Before having implants, my lowers wouldn't allow biting into an apple. I would have to cut it up into slices, and then chew it up that way."

  • NOW, I CAN HAVE A BITE OF ANYTHING

    "Since getting the implants I've been able to approach food without any caution. To get a Big Mac, you know, with the little sesame seeds. When they would get underneath your teeth you'd find yourself saying "ok, how am I going to gracefully get that seed out of there without anybody knowing what I’m doing". I don’t have to worry about any of that anymore, and I can just freely grab anything I want and have a bite of it."

  • I LOVE MY SMILE

    "I would recommend implants because the security of your denture is no longer a concern to you. It's easier to talk. You don't have to worry about them. If you yawn, for instance, you no longer have to worry about your lower denture popping up on you… And then suddenly covering your mouth with your hand. Well, I can say that since coming to see Dallas Texas Dentures, I love my smile. I love my teeth, and I love the reaction that other people have to me now, that they didn't have before. Having implants is just like having normal teeth. My only regret is not knowing about this sooner!"
