All about Denture

 



Complete Dentures

Full Dentures are ideal for patients who have extracted all their teeth from the upper and lower arches. These dentures mimic the patient’s natural teeth. Permanent dentures are usually fixed two months after the extraction of all teeth. The gums have the time to heal and shrink during this period. In the meanwhile, the dentist will generally give patients an immediate full denture. Immediate dentures are temporary. They’re inserted soon after extraction because they promote quicker healing of the gums. The Texas City Dental in Texas City is conveniently located near La Marque, Galveston, and the Hitchcock area is conveniently located near the HEB and ROSS market complex.  is the  family clinic dental. 

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for patients who are missing a few teeth. They’re available as either removable partial dentures or fixed partial dentures. Removable partial dentures contain metallic clasps that grip adjacent teeth. These dentures consist of artificial teeth made out of porcelain or glass-filled resins. Replacement teeth are secured to gum-coloured resins so they look natural when worn. Partial dentures vary in design. The design depends on the number of teeth missing and the location of the missing teeth.


The appointment process is definitely different between the two types of dentures. Traditional dentures require multiple appointments for molds, extractions, fittings and adjustments. With digital dentures it takes 2, maybe 3 appointments if there are any adjustments needed. This makes a huge difference to both the patient and the dentist. The dentist is able to have more chair time available for other patients, and the patient doesn’t have to be spending as much time at the dentist. The patient is also able to have less time with either few teeth,

The secret behind Digital Denture is that breakthrough software controls the manufacturing process. The machine makes the dentures out of a pre-shrunk, homogenous puck. So you don’t have any shrinkage of stone models and traditional injection molding. The way your impression comes out of the mouth of the patient will be the way the denture is made. In fact, digital dentures don’t need a post palatal seal to compensate for poor fitting surfaces; it fits right the first time.

In the case of the traditional dentures, if a part of the denture gets broken or heaven forbid gets lost, you will have to repeat the process of impressions to have a new set of dentures made. This is not so for digital. With digital dentures they are able to fabricate new dentures almost immediately because the digital file can’t be accidently broken. It will forever be on file and waiting to be used again if needed.
