Complete Dentures – Partial Dentures

Serving Dallas, Plano TX & Richardson TX

When a patient loses a single tooth, multiple teeth, or the complete dentition, one method of treatment is either a complete denture or a partial denture. No dental implants are placed.

Generally 4-5 appointments are needed to perform this type of treatment.

Complete Dentures

The reason for complete dentures is to restore the teeth, support for the face height, and support for the lips. These dentures can be placed immediately after tooth extraction. These are termed ‘immediate dentures’. These either have to be relined, or remade after the gums have healed to convert these immediate dentures to definitive complete dentures. Generally dentures need to be relined 5 years after construction and remade every 10 years.

The appointments generally follow:

  1. Initial impressions
  2. Final Impressions
  3. Record of patient’s bite and choice of teeth (size, shape, and color)
  4. Fitting of teeth on a wax base to verify records
  5. Delivery of final dentures

There are conventionally 2-3 post delivery appointments for adjustments. We do not charge for adjustments for the first 6 months after delivery of dentures.

Partial Dentures

The reason for partial dentures is to restore any missing teeth, support for the face height, and support for the lips. The assumption with partial dentures is that there are some teeth that are used to help support the prosthesis and the teeth and the gums work together to maximize patient needs. Generally partial dentures need to be relined 5 years after construction and remade every 10 years.

The appointments generally follow:

  1. Final Impressions
  2. Metal Framework fitting
  3. Record of patient’s bite and choice of teeth (size, shape, and color)
  4. Fitting of teeth on a wax base to verify records
  5. Delivery of final dentures

There are conventionally 2-3 post delivery appointments for adjustments. We do not charge for adjustments for the first 6 months after delivery of dentures.
