In the tapestry of smiles, dentures weave a tale of resilience, embodying the spirit of evolution and adaptation. They are the whispers of a new dawn, a testament that challenges can be met with ingenious solutions, offering comfort and reassurance to those seeking renewal.
Dentures are removable appliances for replacing missing teeth in both the upper and lower jaws. Dentists create these appliances from porcelain, acrylic, and nylon. They consist of a gum base with prosthetic teeth that sit on top. Patients simply insert the dentures in their mouths and use suction and adhesive to cling to the gums.

At Prime Dental we have a wide array of dentures, including complete dentures ideal for patients with missing teeth on both the upper and lower jaw. We use utmost care and diligence to ensure the dentures fit snugly and comfortably in your mouth. The crowns in our dentures are made from high-quality porcelain or ceramic and will last a lifetime with proper care.
Patients with only a few missing teeth in either jaw can opt for our partial dentures. Unlike complete dentures, partial dentures have a bridge of prosthetic teeth attached to a gum base. Once in place, the bridge will replace the missing teeth, giving you a complete smile.

The first step in getting dentures is a consultation session with a dentist near you overseeing your procedure. The consultation typically involves a review of your medical/dental records, examining your gums and teeth, and taking x-rays. This lets them determine whether dentures are the best treatment for your case. If so, they’ll create a treatment plan before moving to the next step.
Preparation is necessary for some patients to achieve the best results. This preparation typically involves dental extractions and gum health improvement for patients with gum disease. After preparation, the dentist will use a digital scanner or dental putty to take impressions of your gums and remaining teeth (if present). The molds are sent to a lab to manufacture your custom dentures.
Once your dentures are ready, the dentist will call you for the initial try-in. They’ll then place the dentures in your mouth and check how they fit. They’ll make any necessary adjustments before scheduling another appointment to fit your dentures.
The dentist will usually give you instructions for caring for your dentures so you can get the most use out of them. These instructions include how to clean your dentures, store them at night, and handle them. Follow-up appointments at our office in Tyler may be necessary if you experience discomfort after fitting your dentures.

It’s not uncommon for people to lisp while wearing dentures. However, with consistent practice, you can sidestep the lisp and speak normally when wearing dentures. In some cases, dentists might adjust your dentures to ensure proper speech.
Dentures restore the missing teeth in your gums to give you a beautiful, complete smile. And since they replace missing teeth, they reverse the sunken appearance your face gets when the jawbone deteriorates from a lack of stimulation by teeth. This results in a more youthful and pleasant appearance.
