What’s the difference between removable dentures and implant dentures?
Dentures are an alternative to complete tooth loss or loss of tooth viability. At Grapevine Dental, our Grapevine, TX dentist provides natural looking dentures for patients across this part of Texas. This includes removable dentures and implant supported dentures.
Learn More About Your Replacement Options
If you’re new to dentures, the process begins with extractions and a mold taken of your mouth. Our Grapevine dentist uses this mold to create your denture or dentures.
Some patients opt for removable dentures. This means you can remove your dentures for cleaning or during sleep, for example.
While our dentures look natural, when teeth are removed, bone loss occurs in the jaw. This means your denture may feel loose in the future. You can schedule dental appointments for realignments and use store-bought adhesives to make your denture feel snug again.
The alternative to removable dentures is affixed dentures. Affixed or implant dentures rely on a few implant posts to permanently attach the denture to your jaw. These implant posts are small but strong!
With affixed dentures, you don’t have to worry about bone loss or adhesives. This is a permanent solution.
At Grapevine Dental, we make sure you’re relaxed and numb throughout the extraction and implant process.
