You may think you know the answer already, but the dentures of today are not what they used to be. Dr. Kessner, Richardson dentist, utilizes the latest developments in denture materials to create tooth replacements that look and function like natural teeth. Our dentures are built to last and help our patients look and feel great.
The Denture Procedure in Richardson, TX
- You will visit with Dr. Kessner for a consultation to decide if dentures are right for you. Dr. Kessner will listen to you to gain a complete understanding of your specific situation. Once the initial assessment is done, you and Dr. Kessner will determine if dentures are the best route for you to take.
- If any teeth need to be removed in order to accommodate your dentures, you can schedule an appointment to have this done comfortably.
- Dr. Kessner will then prepare you for your dentures by taking precise measurements. Your dentures will be expertly crafted to not only look great but fit your mouth and bite perfectly.
After 3-6 weeks, your new, custom-crafted dentures will be ready, and you can share your beautiful smile for years to come.
Types of Dentures
All On 4 Dental Implants vs. Removable Implant Dentures
If you’re looking for an option besides traditional dentures, Dr. Kessner offers denture implants. There are two types Dr. Kessner offers All On 4 dental implants and removable implant-supported dentures.
All On 4 dental implants are permanent dentures placed in your jaw by attaching to four dental implants. Because these dentures are permanently affixed to your jaw, you can eat, speak, and otherwise use your teeth as you normally would. Maintenance of these permanent dentures is the same as any normal teeth, too. Just brush and floss every day!
Removable implant dentures are also available in our office. Rather than permanently fixing your dentures in your jaw, dentures can be fitted to implants and removed just like traditional dentures. With these, you get a tighter, more natural fit to your dentures, and can clean them like traditional dentures.
Benefit of Dentures
Aesthetics | The materials used to create dentures are developed to replicate the color and semi-translucency of natural teeth. Essentially, you can trade in your old teeth for a perfect, ideal smile.
Functionality | Many have concerns about being able to live a normal life wearing dentures. Adhesives and denture materials have made it possible to enjoy almost all activities you would wish to do. Whether it’s eating, laughing, or smiling, our dentures are designed to do what your teeth were made to do.
Durability | In the battle against time and decay our dentures aren’t lightweights. They can handle years of wear and tear and keep going strong. Well made and properly cared-for dentures are made to last a lifetime.
