If you're looking for a time-tested solution to replace missing teeth, you've come to the right place. Simon Family Dental is pleased to offer complete and partial dentures to get you back in a beautiful, healthy, and functional smile. A visit to our Tyler office will help you determine the tooth restoration solution that's right for you.
Complete Dentures - An Overview
If you're missing an entire arch of teeth, either the top or bottom, our full dentures offer a great option to restore your smile's health, function, and appearance. Our fully customized restorations are made to look just like your natural teeth.
At Simon Family Dental, we offer two types of complete dentures, immediate and conventional.
- Immediate Dentures: We must sometimes remove any remaining teeth before placing dentures. Immediate dentures are created in advance and positioned right after tooth extraction, meaning you won't go without teeth for a single day. However, as the area heals, your bone and gums will change in shape, so your dentures will need many adjustments and relining down the road. Immediate dentures offer a temporary solution until you're ready to receive conventional dentures.
- Conventional Dentures: Conventional dentures are created from impressions of your mouth after any remaining teeth are extracted, and the area heals. They may take longer to fit and produce, but they allow us to work on the subtle details of your mouth, gums, and bite for the best fit, comfort, and function. With proper care, your restorations will continue enhancing your smile for many years to come.
Removable Partial Dentures - An Overview
Partial dentures are removable alternatives to traditional dental bridges, providing an excellent tooth replacement solution for patients missing several teeth. They typically consist of natural-looking prosthetic teeth attached to supporting metal frameworks. Partials connect to neighboring teeth on either side of the gap using metal clasps or precision attachments. At Simon Family Dental, we also offer flex partials, a metal-free option for enhanced aesthetic results.
Implant Dentures - An Overview
Implants are the only tooth replacements that act like natural tooth roots, stimulating the bone in your jaw and preventing bone loss. Implant-supported dentures rely on dental implants for support, providing unmatched comfort, stability, and durability. Your restoration will never shift when you speak or eat and will function like natural, healthy teeth. With proper care, implant dentures can last a lifetime!
At Simon Family Dental, we offer implant overdentures and fixed hybrid dentures.
- Implant Overdentures: Overdentures are removable implant restorations that can replace some or all your missing teeth. They are similar to dentures but snap onto 2-6 dental implants for support. Implant overdentures are incredibly secure and stable, delivering results comparable to having healthy, natural teeth.
- Fixed Hybrid Dentures: Fixed hybrid dentures replace an entire arch of missing teeth. They are secured to implants and are not removable by the patient. Although more costly than overdentures, fixed hybrids are preferred by patients who want tooth replacements that more closely feel like their natural teeth.
