Sometimes permanent teeth are missing but there is not an appropriate place to anchor a fixed replacement “bridge”. In such cases, a removable set of teeth can be made to fit the mouth’s natural look and shape. Dentures or partial dentures lend critical support to the cheek and lip muscles and with just a little practice, restore normal chewing and speaking ability. Easily maintained, they facilitate a natural, comfortable smile. In some cases, implants can serve to be excellent anchors for dentures and partial dentures, giving you the ability to eat anything with confidence without the trouble of dental adhesives.

Dr. John M. Hucklebridge is proud to have helped numerous Invisalign, dental crowns and dental implants patients realize their dreams of beautiful smiles. To deliver the best possible smile makeover results, he sometimes recommends that patients undergo combination treatments. For example, he often suggests that porcelain veneers patients also receive teeth whitening in order to achieve even, natural-looking teeth color.
Denture Placement and Repairs
Losing your permanent teeth can have negative effects on your oral and overall health and confidence. It’s a life-changing event. Not only do missing teeth inhibit your ability to chew, but they also create unsightly gaps in your smile.
Our Plano dental office can provide a number of solutions, including beautiful and natural-looking partial and full-arch dentures. To better stabilize or secure oral devices, patients often select our implant-retained dentures.
Dentures give patients an alternative to living with gaps in their smile. Dentures or partial dentures lend critical support to the cheek and lip muscles and with just a little practice, restore normal chewing and speaking ability. Easily maintained, they facilitate a natural, comfortable smile.
Whether you’re living with full arches of dentures or partial dentures, it’s still important to receive regular dental checkups. When you lose your teeth, you’re still susceptible to gum issues. Additionally, those living without their natural teeth or placement teeth are likely to see their jawbones recede over time.
While your body changes when you have lost your teeth, it’s important to know that dentures also sometimes change shape. In fact, no matter how diligent you are about caring for your dentures, it’s possible for the dentures to change shape, warp, or even break.
