While the dentures of the past were bulky and obvious, the prosthetics provided by Real Dental are sleek, comfortable, and make it look and feel like a patient never lost their teeth in the first place. When you become our patient, your dentist will walk you through the denture creation process step-by-step to ensure your final result leaves you feeling confident and secure in your smile. We can create dentures and partials in Grand Prairie, TX to replace just a few teeth or even all of them, and you can learn more by contacting us today.
When you hear the word “denture,” you probably picture a full denture in your mind, which is a prosthetic that’s designed to replace an entire row of teeth at the same time. In addition to bringing back the teeth and dramatically improving a patient’s ability to chew, full dentures can also add height to the face to create a healthier, more youthful appearance. And, it can properly align the bite to prevent strain on the jaw joint that can lead to chronic face, head, and neck pain. Typically, this type of denture sits on top of the gums and is held in place using natural suction or a small amount of denture adhesive.
If a patient still has some healthy teeth remaining, we can provide them with a partial denture that fits between them to seamlessly close gaps throughout the mouth. These dentures consist of acrylic teeth attached to a gum-colored base that can be formed into any shape that’s necessary, and they are held in place using small metal clasps that loop around nearby teeth. This type of denture enables our team to preserve the rest of a patient’s teeth and have them work in tandem with a prosthetic to create a smile that is as strong and reliable as possible.
