Full Dentures and Partial Dentures
If you have missing teeth, partial dentures or full complete dentures can help improve your life in several ways. Replacing missing teeth promotes good general health by improving your ability to properly chew foods. Gennting dentures restores your natural facial appearance by supporting your lips and cheeks thus correcting the collapsed appearance caused by missing teeth. Getting dentures can also improve communication skills by correcting the speech problems that often accompany missing teeth. Perhaps most important of all, getting dentures help improve self-esteem by restoring your smile. To find out more about the health benefits of full complete dentures and partial dentures call 940-565-5049 to make an appointment for a free, no obligation denture consultation.
What are Full Dentures or Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures, or full dentures, replaces all of the teeth on the top of your mouth and/or all of your teeth on the bottom of your mouth.
What is a Removable Partial Denture?
A removable partial denture replaces one or more missing teeth and is held in place by your remaining natural teeth. In this circumstance, a fixed partial (a bridge) is generally preferable but sometimes a bridge is not an option due to lack of required teeth to support a bridge. A removable partial denture is not as stable as a bridge but it is less expensive.
What is a Fixed Partial Denture?
A fixed partial denture, also known as “crown and bridge,” replaces one or more missing teeth and is permanently attached to your remaining natural teeth. Fixed partial dentures (bridges) are more stable than removable partial dentures but they are also more expensive.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Dentures?
Dental insurance usually covers some or all of the cost of getting dentures, complete dentures, removable partial dentures, and fixed partial dentures. As with all dental procedures, dental insurance coverage varies depending on the dental insurance company and your specific plan. If you do not know what your insurance covers, call us at 940-565-5049 and we will find out for you.
How are Dentures Made?
Because there are several steps in the making of custom dentures, it takes several appointments over a period of three to five weeks to complete the process. On the first appointment, we will make a series of measurements and impressions of your mouth. We will then write precise instructions for a dental laboratory technician who will make a model of your custom dentures. You will “try in” this model of your custom dentures several times so that we can make all of the adjustments needed to make your denture fit just right. To find out more about the health benefits of full custom dentures and partial custom dentures call 940-565-5049 to make an appointment for a free, no obligation denture consultation.
Did George Washington Really Wear False Teeth made of Wood?
George Washington wore dentures from about 1764 to his death in 1799. But, contrary to popular lore, his dentures were not made of wood, they were made of ivory. Washington’s complete dentures are on display in the museum at the George Washington residence at Mount Vernon.
