Dentures are a wonderful option if you want to replace several lost teeth. Removable dentures can renew your smile and make it easier to speak and eat confidently. MINT dentistry’s team of dental professionals offers either full or partial traditional removable dentures for patients in Lake Worth, TX to help them get a natural-looking smile. Full dentures can replace all the teeth in both your upper and lower arches or in just one. Partial dentures leave some of your natural teeth to hold the restoration in place. At MINT dentistry, we will help you decide whether full or partial dentures suit your needs, then have your dentures custom made so they look and feel natural. Contact us to schedule an initial consultation with a member of our skilled team at our state-of-the-art practice to learn more about removable dentures and how MINT dentistry in Lake Worth, TX can restore your confidence.
Traditional dentures may be an option if you are missing many teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still strong and healthy. If you still have some of your natural teeth, they can be used to support a partial denture or extracted for a full denture. During your initial consultation, a member of the MINT dentistry team will examine your mouth and teeth, then talk about your choices to fit your needs and budget. If you are missing some or all of your teeth and are ready to transform your smile with dentures, schedule a consultation.
What to Expect
To begin your appointment, your MINT dentistry team will help you settle comfortably into a comfortable treatment chair in a well-equipped treatment room. We'll offer you a choice between listening to music on a pair of Beats headphones or watching a show on a flat-screen. Once you've put on a pair of our stylish MINT sunglasses, the process will begin. In some cases, your dentist may perform an extraction before taking impressions that will be used to make your custom dentures. If you are getting partial dentures, they will be shaded to match your natural teeth for an attractive appearance. When your dentures are made, your dentist will adjust the fit so they are comfortable, secure, and look natural in your mouth. Your dentist will also go over how to take care of your dentures, including how to clean and store them.
Give yourself a few days to adjust before your new dentures feel natural, but eventually, it should be easier to eat and speak. If you feel like your dentures are loose, talk with a member of the MINT dentistry team so your dentures can be adjusted for a better fit. At home, you will need to brush your dentures at least twice a day. When you take out your dentures, you should soak them in water so they do not dry out. Continue to schedule regular cleaning appointments and exams at our practice so a member of our team can assess the condition of your dentures, as well as your oral health. Our team will let you know if your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with proper care, your full or partial dentures can last for a long time.
The MINT Commitment
Our team at MINT dentistry is committed to giving a gorgeous smile to each of our valued patients. If you're using dental insurance, some of the cost of your dentures will typically be paid by your benefits. Our office will reach out to your insurance to understand your exact coverage and out-of-pocket expenses. In your consultation with your dentist, a treatment plan will be created to match both your budget and needs. To help make your dentures affordable, for patients both with and without dental insurance, our practice accepts most payment methods and we can help you apply for medical financing.
