Dentures are perhaps one of the most common dental implant services, and for good reason. They have long been used to replace missing teeth, allowing people to confidently live their lives without feeling self conscious about their smile. Dentures are removable appliances that can help restore your smile and replace any number of missing teeth. Whether you have lost your natural teeth to trauma, gum disease, or tooth decay, dentures are a viable option that will benefit your appearance and overall health. Not only do dentures help your outward appearance, but they also make it much easier to eat and speak, both of which we take for granted and are extremely difficult with missing teeth.
Dr. Anup Naik and our entire Las Colinas dental team places a strong emphasis on helping our patients in any way we can, which often means dentures. Our dental professionals are highly-trained with years of experience in using a wide range of dentistry techniques. Dr. Naik has worked hard to ensure our clinic has the latest technology and our technicians are trained on the most current techniques.

Types of Dentures
In order to figure out which is right for you, it is important to have a good understanding of the various types of dentures available today:
- Conventional – Also referred to as full dentures, these removable dentures are placed into the mouth once the remaining teeth have been removed and tissues have healed. In some cases, the healing process may take several months.
- Immediate – Another removable option, immediate dentures are inserted on the same day that your remaining teeth are removed. Prior to the actual procedure, Dr. Naik will take measurements of your mouth and make models of your jaw. One of the benefits of this type of denture is that you will not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, some patients may need to have the dentures relined or remained once the jaw has completely healed.
- Overdenture – In the event some of your teeth can be saved, an overdenture may be the best option for you. Overdentures use your remaining teeth for stability and support. The prosthetic will fit over a small number of remaining teeth once they have been prepared by Dr. Naik.
The type of dentures that are best for your specific case will depend on a host of factors, all of which Dr. Naik and our Las Colinas dental team will go over with you. For many, new dentures feel awkward and are somewhat difficult to become accustomed to. It is important that you keep an open mind and do not get discouraged by the strange new feeling of dentures.
This type of dental implant is designed to restore your smile and self-esteem. While many people associate dentures with the elderly, they are a great option for those with missing teeth due to injury, decay, or disease. Today’s dentures are natural-looking, comfortable, and great for many people. Because Dr. Naik is so committed to using the latest and best technology, you are guaranteed to be fitted with dentures that are specific to your needs, mouth, and jaw.
