Dentures Overview

Dentures are a great choice if you need a replacement for missing teeth. Dentures can restore the appearance of your smile and make it easier to eat and speak with full confidence. Board-certified dentist Dr. Robert Porter can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Richardson, TX and surrounding areas. Full dentures replace all the teeth in your lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use some of your healthy, natural teeth to act as support. Dr. Porter also gives you the option of traditional removable dentures or implant-supported dentures. At Robert L. Porter Dentistry, we can help you determine whether partial or full as well as fixed or removable dentures are best for your specific needs, and then have your dentures custom made to look natural. Make an appointment with Dr. Porter to get more information about dentures.

Best Candidates for Dentures

You could be an ideal candidate for dentures if you have suffered the loss of many teeth, but still have healthy gums and a strong jawbone. If you have some healthy natural teeth remaining, you may have the option of  keeping them as support for a partial denture. During your consultation with Dr. Porter, he will assess your mouth and discuss your choices to fit your needs and budget. Dr. Porter will also help you decide between removable or implant-supported dentures.

What To Expect from Dentures

Whether you are getting implant dentures or conventional dentures, Dr. Porter will take impressions, which will help make your custom dentures. Partial dentures will be customized to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive appearance. As soon as your dentures are crafted, Dr. Porter will adjust the fit so they are comfortable and secure. He will also go over the best way to clean and care for your new dentures.

Dentures Follow-Up

You will have a follow-up visit with Dr. Porter to address any areas of the denture causing discomfort and recheck the balance of the bite. For removable dentures, you will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush twice a day. When you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked so they don't dry out. Implant dentures should be cleaned just like your natural teeth with brushing and flossing. You should continue to attend exams and cleanings at Robert L. Porter Dentistry, so Dr. Porter can check the fit and wear of your dentures and the overall health of your mouth. He will discuss when you need to have your dentures replaced or repaired; however, with proper maintenance, your custom dentures can last for many years.

Insurance Coverage for Dentures

If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will typically be covered. Our office will work with your insurance company to determine your exact coverage and personal expenses. During your consultation with Dr. Porter, he will customize your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. To help make your denture affordable with or without dental insurance, Robert L. Porter Dentistry takes several payment methods, including low-interest dental financing.
