Denture Options in North Houston
When it comes to replacing your missing teeth, dentures are usually the most affordable and efficient solution. At North Houston Dentistry, we offer both full and partial dentures, depending on what your smile needs.
Full Dentures (“Plates”)
Dentures have been around for centuries, but they’ve never been as comfortable or cosmetically pleasing as they are now. Our custom North Houston dentures make it possible to restore your entire smile in just a couple of appointments, thanks to a removable upper or lower appliance.
Full dentures rest directly on top of your gums, creating a suction that helps them stay in place throughout the day. If for any reason your denture starts to rock, feel loose, or you have sores on your gums, it likely needs to be relined or replaced.
A “partial” is a denture that only has some teeth, rather than replaces all of them. This type of appliance makes it possible for us to retain your existing healthy teeth, instead of extracting them. Your partial clasps into place around them, using your remaining teeth as anchors to keep the appliance stable.
Because of the design, partials are smaller than full dentures. As such, they’re usually easier to adjust to.
In some cases, we can even add new teeth to your partial if you lose one or require an extraction.
If you’re hesitant about getting a denture, our North Houston practice also offers implant supported dentures (Snap On Dentures) and bridges. We invite you to talk to Dr. Bastani about which options are best for you, so you can make an educated choice about your smile’s future!
Do I Still Need to See a Dentist?
Even if you wear dentures, you should plan to schedule a checkup at North Houston Dentistry every six months. During your exam we’ll check for bone loss, oral cancer, and clean your denture. Regular visits ensure that your appliance fits correctly and reduces your chances of bone loss (which affects how your denture rests in your mouth.)
Affording Dentures in Houston
Dentures are usually the most affordable treatment when you need to quickly replace missing teeth. Our North Houston dentist accepts all major PPO insurance plans, as well as Medicaid, to keep the cost of your care as low as possible (without compromising the quality of your treatment!)
Bring your insurance card with you to your appointment, so that our treatment coordinator can confirm your benefits and provide you with an estimate on your portion.
If you don’t have coverage, that’s ok too! We offer flexible financing plans that are easy to fit into your budget. Get started on treatment right away without having to break the bank.
Are Dentures Right for You?
Sometimes people come to North Houston Dentistry assuming that the best thing for their smile is to have all of their teeth pulled and a set of dentures made. Usually, that’s not the case. Call Dr. Bastani today to find out if dentures or another reconstructive solution is best for your smile.
