Different Options to Treat Tooth Loss Custom Dentures Based on Your Needs

There are different kinds of dentures available depending on the extent of your tooth loss.

Full Dentures

A set of full dentures is ideal for people who are missing most or all of their teeth. The appliance remains in place by bracing around the gum and jawbone structure of the dental arch. Denture creams and dental adhesives can improve grip.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are recommended for people who are missing multiple teeth who would not benefit from a dental bridge. The partial appliance braces around the gum and jawbone while also bracketing around any remaining teeth.

What Our Dentures Are Made Of Advanced Materials in Dentistry

No Heavy Metals

When crafting dentures for our patients, our Abilene, TX, dental office prefers to avoid heavy metals. This keeps the appliance lightweight, and it also prevents the appearance of gray, silver, or dark lines when you smile.

Flexible Materials

Whenever possible, Dr. Simpson recommends flexible dentures by Flexite® or Valplast® instead of rigid acrylic appliances. Flexible dentures are made out of thermoplastic nylon, so they are less likely to chip or break than acrylic dentures. In addition, these flexible appliances are more comfortable to wear, placing less pressure on the gums.

Natural Appearance

Custom full and partial dentures made from thermoplastic nylon resin closely resemble natural teeth. Dr. Simpson will take great care to ensure that your denture enhances the aesthetics of your smile in addition to restoring normal dental function.

Are You Missing Teeth? Contact Dr. Simpson for a Consultation

If you are missing several teeth or all of your teeth, it's important to meet with a dentist to learn about your treatment options. Dr. Simpson may recommend a set of dentures. The appliance will fill in tooth gaps so you can bite, chew, speak, and smile as if you had a full set of natural teeth.

Dr. Simpson began practicing as a dentist in 1984. He brings decades of experience to each dental visit, and takes time to listen to you. Good dental care is built on this connection between our dentist and his patients.

I absolutely love the people here! My family and I have been going to Dr. Simpson for over 10 years. They are always willing to work with our crazy schedules and very attentive to our needs. They show genuine concern and take very good care of us. No one particularly enjoys going to the dentist but when they are as kind and friendly as the staff here it makes it better!

I would recommend  Abilene Aesthetic and Cosmetic Dentistry to anyone. As a person who absolutely hates going to the dentist, this place made it much more bearable! Very friendly staff, clean environment and informative dentist. I felt very comfortable and will not mind making my next appointment.

Crafting Custom Dentures What Patients Can Expect

Initial Consultation
 

During your first appointment at our Abilene, TX, practice, we'll assess the extent of your tooth loss and discuss your current concerns and your oral health goals. It's important to speak with a skilled dentist to get answers to any questions you may have and to discuss your potential candidacy for dental implants.

Taking Impressions

Once we've discussed all of your treatment options and you've made an informed decision, we then take impressions of your mouth. This will allow the dental lab to create a comfortable appliance that looks natural when in place.

Crafting the Custom Appliance

We partner with a trusted dental lab based in the USA known for their high-quality craftsmanship. Their technicians will create a custom appliance that is color-matched to complement any remaining teeth or mimic the appearance of natural teeth. While lab time can vary, the finished appliance is typically ready within four weeks.

Checking the Final Fit

Once we receive the completed denture, you'll return to our Abilene, TX, practice so we can check the fit. Dr. Simpson will make adjustments as needed to make sure your new dentures are snug and do not cause any discomfort.

Implant-Supported Dentures

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Implant-supported dentures are dentures that are held in place by dental implants. These implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into the jawbone. Over time, the implants fuse with the bone and become stable enough to support full or partial dentures.

Though dentures supported by implants are more costly, many people find that the benefits of dental implants are worth the added expense.

Candidates for Implant-Supported Dentures

During your visit to our Abilene, TX, practice, we can examine your jawbone and gum tissue to determine if you are a good candidate for implants. We want to ensure there is sufficient bone density along the jaw so the implants will be secure. Oral surgery is necessary to place the implants, so individuals need to be in good enough health for the procedure.

The Difference Implants Can Make A Dental Implant Patient Shares His Story

John's oral health problems affected multiple teeth, making it difficult to bite, chew, and simply enjoy meals. Thanks to Dr. Simpson in Abilene, TX, John received a custom restoration supported by dental implants. The implants provided excellent stability. John's smile looks great, and the treatment has improved the way he feels as well.
