What Are Dentures and Partial Dentures?

Dentures allow you to experience a life of confidence once again after substantial tooth loss. We offer full dentures that are used to replace all missing teeth or partial dentures for patients who still have healthy teeth remaining. Our prosthetics are designed to provide premier comfort and aesthetics, and they are truly built to last. In addition to traditional removable dentures, we also offer implant-retained prosthetics, which can give patients the most secure and stable fit available today.

What Are The Benefits Of Dentures And Partial Dentures?

Dentures and partial dentures designed by Dr. Hamelett or Dr. La Mastra don't just give you a beautiful new smile; they also help preserve your dental health and appearance with benefits like:

  • Replacing multiple missing teeth or all teeth
  • Strengthening the bite
  • Improving speech

  • Creating a more youthful appearance
  • Looks natural
  • Easy to care for
  • Boosts confidence

Am I A Candidate For Dentures Or Partial Dentures?

Good candidates for a custom-made set of dentures or partial dentures can be any patients who have lost multiple teeth. Dentures work to enhance your oral function, allow you to eat the food you love, and help maintain your facial volume and structure. These pieces work most effectively when the gum tissues are healthy, and there is a sustainable amount of jawbone for support. During your visit with Dr. La Mastra or Dr. Hamlett, they will evaluate your mouth and review your possible solutions based on your needs, maintenance aims, and budget. After this, our professionals will be able to help you figure out if dentures are right for your oral health and the style that may effectively fit your individual needs and goals.

How Can I Eat, Speak, & Smile with Confidence Again?

With dentures, you can get back to your confident, normal life even after the loss of your teeth. After tooth loss, the muscles and soft structures of your mouth can deteriorate if you don't replace your teeth with properly-fitted dentures. Offering only the most advanced removable dentures to best fit you, Dr. Hamlett and Dr. La Mastra will guide you every step of the way. Our team creates custom dentures made for you and helps you select the shade and shape. You walk away with great fitting dentures that look just like real teeth and which allow you to eat normally and smile confidently.

What Are Partial Dentures?

Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a dental bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The denture is removable and designed to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile, while still remaining functional. The partial denture is important once the teeth have been removed to preserve the bone and to keep existing teeth from tilting and growing in towards the gaps.

Are There Any Denture Alternatives?

Although dentures and partials are a great way to replace missing teeth and prevent jawbone deterioration there are other options available. Dr. Hamlett and Dr. La Mastra are certified to treat tooth loss patients with dental implants and implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and are effective because they form a bond with the jaw. This process, called osseointegration, allows the dental implant to have to most secure and natural fit possible.

Implant-supported dentures are also a good option for patients who want dentures that are held in place by implants. With this procedure, only a few implants are placed in the jawbone and the dentures are secured to the implants. The result is dentures that won’t slip, allow you more flexibility in eating, and added prevention in the onset of jawbone deterioration.

How Do I Care For My Dentures?

Returning to your normal activities, such as chewing and speaking like before, could require some getting used to; this is normal, and they will be easier with time. If your dentures feel like they are too loose, contact our Dallas, TX dental facility so our staff can set up a modification checkup. You will need to care for your dentures by brushing them using a delicate brush following every meal and keeping them in water at night to keep them from becoming too dry. We advise you to stop by our office for regular evaluations so we can check the state of your appliances and your total dental wellness for several years to come.

Dentures and Partial Dentures FAQ

Do dentures look natural?
When you’ve experienced substantial tooth loss, getting a custom-made pair of dentures made is the perfect way to be able to laugh, smile, speak, and eat like you used to. At Hamlett & La Mastra DDS, we can create either full or partial dentures to rebuild your smile. Our team will help you choose a shape and shade for your dentures to ensure they match your smile in a way that looks completely natural.

What is a partial denture?
If you only have several missing teeth that can’t be corrected with a dental bridge, a partial denture can fill the gap. This type of denture is made to match your natural tooth shade and gum color while fitting comfortably in your mouth. While it cosmetically replaces your smile and allows you to eat normally again, a partial denture is also important to preserve the health of your teeth and gums by preserving the bone and preventing your teeth from tilting and growing inward toward the gap.

What are the problems with dentures?
The biggest problem most denture wearers face is having a full denture or partial denture that is ill-fitting. This can cause pain, discomfort, difficulty eating, sliding in the mouth, and even falling out. That’s why Dr. Hamlett, Dr. La Mastra, and their expert team take extra care when crafting your dentures. In addition to ensuring a proper fit, they will create a customized denture that matches your natural tooth and gum color for a natural look.

Are there alternatives to dentures?
In addition to full and partial dentures, at Hamlett & La Mastra DDS, you can be fitted with dental implants and implant-supported dentures. Dental implants use a titanium post implanted into the jaw that fuses to your bone. A single tooth, partial or full denture can then be affixed to these posts to provide a stronger, sturdier base allowing for even more comfort, durability, and reliability in your bite.

What should I avoid with dentures?

While dentures are designed to be durable and withstand normal use, there are certain things you should avoid to prolong their lifespan. These include hard or sticky foods, which can cause damage to the dentures. Do not use your teeth to open packages or bottles, and avoid using toothpicks around your dentures. We can provide more detailed care instructions during your appointments at our office.

When should I contact my dentist?

If you experience any discomfort or pain, contact Dr. Hamlett or Dr. La Mastra right away. Ill-fitting dentures cause irritation and sores in the mouth, which can be uncomfortable and lead to infection if left untreated. Other signs to look out for include difficulty speaking or eating, slipping dentures, and any changes in the shape or fit of your dentures. Our experienced team can adjust or modify the dentures to ensure a comfortable fit.
