If you have tooth loss, you may have considered tooth replacement options to restore your smile, your bite, and your oral health.

At Town East Dental Group, we offer a variety of choices to bring your smile back to life, including dental implants, dental bridges, and modern dentures.

Modern dentures in Mesquite, TX are natural-looking and customized to fit the contours of your gums. Our modern dentures in Mesquite, TX are even designed to complement your face structure.

Modern Dentures for Today’s Patient

Dentures have come a long way in recent years and are heads above the restorative appliances offered during previous decades.

At Town East Dental Group, we craft our dentures after taking a careful impression of your mouth. This means your new smile fits you, and no one else.

Additionally, the restorative teeth on today’s dentures are carefully fabricated to look natural right down to tooth color and shape.

Denture Options

If you have full tooth loss, we recommend complete dentures. If you have sporadic tooth loss but healthy remaining teeth, we may recommend partial dentures.

A full denture is a complete arch of replacement teeth. A partial denture is fitted with sporadic replacement teeth to fill in smile gaps.

Caring for Your Denture

It’s important to visit your dentist regularly for comprehensive exams and teeth cleanings. And you should always wear your denture to your exam so your dentist in Mesquite, TX can check the fit and function.

You should also clean your denture daily in a denture bath. We also recommend using denture paste and denture brush to clean your appliance. Toothpaste may be too abrasive.

Eventually, your jawbone will start to shrink away without the stimulation of tooth roots. This means your denture will loosen over time. It is important to visit your dentist for a reline if you notice slippage or if you’re applying adhesives several times each day.

If you notice cracks in your denture, it’s important to schedule an appointment with your dentist—cracks can lead to breakage.
