The Removable Option for Tooth Replacement
Tooth replacement comes in two basic types: removable and fixed. Fixed dental prosthetics include crown and bridge and dental implants. Removable dental prosthetics include full dentures and partial dentures. Dentures and partials have been around for centuries in one form or another – in fact, people used to use animal teeth in the creation of dentures. Today, we have access to a number of materials that give us the ability to create natural-looking and comfortable dentures and partials that greatly improve upon their predecessors.
The main advantage of dentures and partials over other forms of tooth replacement is the cost – they tend to be less expensive than other methods. They are also very easy to clean. You simply remove them to brush them or soak them, which allows you to get every nook and cranny. While dentures can be somewhat prone to slippage, with modern advances in the design and creation of dentures and partials, this is less of a problem than ever before.

Come to Family Smiles for your dentures in Flower Mound, TX. Dentures will help your ability to chew, speak, and feel comfortable with your smile again. Our dentists design a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you.
Our process of creating dentures in Flower Mound is simple and easy for patients. There are different types of materials that can be used, but most often, partial dentures are made from metal, plastic, or polymer.
We will take an impression of your mouth and create a mold of it. A plaster model is poured and the dentist gets a representation of the inside of your mouth. Next, we’ll create the shape of the teeth that will form your dentures. Once complete, the dentist fastens the dentures to look perfectly natural.
Caring for Dentures
Removing your dentures at bedtime gives time for routine cleaning and brushing. Cleaning your dentures as often as your existing teeth helps prevent bacteria and plaque on the partial dentures from affecting your teeth. Bacteria can transfer from your partial denture and cause cavities.
In addition to brushing your dentures at least once a day and soaking them overnight, you need to thoroughly clean your mouth after you use dentures and before you put them back in. This includes your gums, the roof of your mouth, and your tongue as well.
To keep your dentures in good condition, there are certain foods you should avoid, or eat in small quantities such as:
- Hard foods, such as nuts and seeds
- Chewy foods, such as candies and steak
- Staining foods and drinks, such as coffee or tea.
