Dentures & Partials
Tooth loss can be devastating, whether it occurs because of an injury or extensive decay or infection. Dr. Lori Logan wants to help you get your smile back and offers several tooth replacement options for her Cypress patients, including dentures and partials.
Dentures and partials are types of dental prosthetics that mimic the look and feel of real teeth. Dentures involve an entire plate of false teeth, whereas partials only have several teeth attached to the appliance in areas where you are missing dentition.
Our beautiful dentures are custom made for each patient to restore a beautiful, full, and natural-looking smile when many or all teeth are missing. The appliances can last anywhere from five to seven years with proper storage and care.
Full and Partial Dentures in Cypress, TX
You may need dentures or partials if you are missing many or all of your teeth. Some patients may need to have decayed or loose teeth removed prior to being fitted for the appliance.
Partials are designed for people who are missing many of their teeth, but you're looking for a more cost-effective alternative to implants, crowns, and bridgework. Both appliances are created specifically for each individual patient to provide a comfortable and secure fit.
Why We Recommend Dentures
A thorough dental exam and series of x-rays are needed to help determine if dentures or partials are right for you. You may choose this option if you want to avoid more invasive procedures, or if you are interested in replacing your current prosthetic.
Some of the reasons you may want a denture or partial include:
- You are missing many or all of your teeth.
- You want a full smile that looks natural.
- You want an appliance that is durable and long-lasting.
- You want to avoid more invasive procedures like implants and fixed bridges.
- You already wear either of these prosthetics and want to replace your current appliance.
Steps for Getting Dentures & Partials
The first step is to come to our Cypress dental office for an examination and series of x-rays. We will also take tooth impressions that we send to a local dental lab.
The laboratory technicians use these impressions to create dentures or partials that fit your unique mouth shape. You will come back into the office to be fitted for the appliance once it has been created.
Dr. Lori Logan can perform minor corrections in the fit of the appliance to make it more comfortable. You will receive instructions on how to care for your new dentures or partials.
