Who Is a Good Candidate for Dentures?
We offer a variety of denture options to meet the needs of our patients. Removable partial dentures may be ideal for those who have experienced some amount of tooth loss but still have natural teeth remaining in the jaw. Full conventional dentures may be suitable when an entire arch of teeth have been lost. When patients need to have all teeth extracted in the top or bottom jaw, a full immediate denture can be worn following tooth removal and adjusted for fit as the gums heal. Implant-supported dentures can offer increased stability for denture appliances by connecting to a series of dental implants surgically positioned within the jaw.
What Is the Process?
At ACE Dental of Harker Heights, we start the denture process by taking 3D digital impressions of your top and bottom arches. Our team will then send these detailed images to a professional dental lab where your tooth replacement appliances will be crafted. Dentures are made from lightweight plastic or from resin supported by a molded metal framework. Special care and skill are taken to create dentures that mimic the color and appearance of your teeth and gums for an attractive, natural-looking result. After your dentures are delivered to our practice, you will return to try them in or have them secured to dental implants.
Caring for Your Tooth Replacements
Full dentures are held in place by the shape of the jaw or with a denture adhesive while partial dentures are retained by plastic or metal pieces that discreetly clasp around natural teeth. Though it may take some time for you to become accustomed to your dentures, they should eventually start to feel like a part of your natural smile. We recommend that you clean your dentures after every meal with a soft brush and soak them in water when you remove them each night. Attending routine visits with our Harker Heights, TX team is also important, even if you wear full dentures, so we can check the condition of your appliances and oral health. Dentures can last for several years when they are cared for properly.
Are Dentures Covered by Insurance?
Some of the treatment costs for dentures may be covered under dental insurance plans. Before getting started, we will review your benefits and let you know what your financial responsibility might be. ACE Dental of Harker Heights works with several dental insurance providers and offers a number of budget-friendly payment solutions. We will be happy to help you explore your options and assist you in applying for special medical financing.
