Quality Restorations in Coppell, TX
Custom dentures can be a good option if you want to replace several missing teeth. Removable dentures can renew your smile and give you more confidence. Dr. James Peterson can provide either full or partial removable dentures for patients in Coppell, TX. Full dentures can replace your entire upper arch, lower arch, or both, while partial dentures use your remaining teeth as support. At James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we will help you decide whether full or partial dentures fit your needs best, and then have them custom made to look beautiful and feel great.
Best Candidates for Dentures
You may be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you still have some natural teeth, they may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. At your initial consultation with Dr. Peterson, he will examine your teeth and mouth and explain your options based on your budget and needs.
What To Expect
Dr. Peterson will extract any remaining teeth if needed before taking oral impressions, which will be used to customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless finish. Once your dentures are created, Dr. Peterson will fit them so they are secure and comfortable.
Follow-Up & After Care
It may take some time for your new dentures feel natural, but you will eventually get used to eating and speaking with them. If your dentures feel loose, return to James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry to have them refitted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice a day. At night or whenever you remove your dentures, you should soak them to prevent them from drying out. Continue to schedule cleanings and exams at James Peterson Family & Cosmetic Dentistry so Dr. Peterson can monitor the wear and fit of your dentures and the health of your jaw and gums. He will let you know if your dentures need to be repaired or replaced, but with ideal care, your dentures should last for several years.
