Partials & Dentures
Partials & Dentures
If you have multiple missing teeth or severely decayed teeth that cannot be saved via methods such as fillings, root canals and bridges, then you may be a good candidate for dentures. Affordable dentures are more common than ever thanks to advances in dental technology, and our dentures in Mission, TX include both full and partial dentures designed to suit your needs.
Do I Need Dentures?
Dentures have been around for centuries in some form or another; dentures in the past could be made from material such as gold, wood or other composite materials.
Today, dentures are more advanced than ever, thanks to advances in innovative dental technology. Dentures are often recommended to people who have many missing teeth or who have advanced tooth decay on multiple teeth in their mouth, which cannot be treated through alternative methods
Dentures are used to restore functionality to someone’s mouth. Functionality can be affected when multiple teeth are missing, which may make it difficult to eat and chew; missing teeth can also impact someone’s ability to talk and pronounce words, which will impact quality of life.
Full or partial dentures are a practical solution to both of these problems.
Full dentures are used to replace all of the teeth in a patient’s mouth. In some cases, the dentist may recommend extracting the remaining teeth in order to make room for dentures. This is typically done in cases where the remaining teeth have tooth decay or there are relatively few remaining teeth left.
Partial dentures are used to replace partial areas of the mouth with missing teeth. Unlike full dentures, partial dentures are used in targeted areas of the mouth where missing teeth are located and are not a complete artificial prosthetic.
In both cases, dentures can be used to restore functionality to your mouth as well as improve your aesthetic appearance and restore your smile.
The total cost for dentures will depend on a variety of factors, including but not limited to: whether or not you have insurance, what insurance you have, why you need dentures as well as how (if at all) you will have them adhered/bonded to your mouth. Some dentures are adhered using temporary adhesive material which needs to be applied and reapplied once or more per day; other dentures can be adhered using more permanent methods, though this will vary depending on the health of your mouth, the type of dentures you are receiving, and the personal recommendations of your dentist.
Some insurance companies may cover dentures while others may only partially cover dentures and denture related procedures.
