Dentures in Arlington

woman with new denturesWhile it’s always ideal to retain all your teeth, there are times when dentures are needed. They may be the perfect option for you if you have multiple missing teeth and are ready to reclaim your smile. At Arlington Dental, we understand the impact missing teeth can have on your confidence and oral health. That’s why we’re here to help you evaluate the solution that works best for you.


Why Choose Dentures?

Dentures have come a long way in terms of comfort and appearance. Unlike past dentures, today’s dentures are more comfortable and natural-looking. They can replace all of your teeth or just a few, known as partial dentures.

Both types of dentures may require some preparatory steps, such as tooth extractions or minor surgeries, to ensure a perfect fit and feel.

What to Expect

When you choose dentures at Arlington Dental, we start by taking an impression of your teeth. This impression is then used to custom-make your dentures, ensuring a precise fit. If you need full dentures and extractions are necessary, we’ll provide you with a temporary denture to assist with the healing process and to give you “teeth” while your gums heal.

Those opting for partial dentures will be attached to existing teeth using anchors made of plastic or metal.

A final denture is prepared after all healing has taken place, usually within six to twelve months.

Full and partial dentures are designed to be removable, allowing you to take them out at night when you sleep. This allows saliva to wash over your gums, maintaining a healthy mouth naturally.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I take care of my dentures?

It is important to maintain good oral hygiene, even with dentures. Dentures should be cleaned every day with a soft-bristle toothbrush and denture-specific cleaning products. It is also important to soak dentures in water or a cleaning solution to prevent them from drying out and losing their shape.

Will my speech or eating habits change with dentures?

It may take some time for your mouth to adjust to wearing dentures, so speaking and eating may feel different at first. However, with practice, most people are able to speak and eat comfortably with dentures. It is important to start with softer foods and gradually introduce harder or chewier foods back into your diet as you get used to wearing dentures. Additionally, denture adhesive can help improve stability and reduce discomfort while eating.
