Your Experts for Denture Treatment
Full & Partial Dentures in Hewitt, TX
Dentures are an affordable, natural-looking solution for missing teeth. The treatment process is also minimally invasive and can be completed faster than most tooth replacement options.
We feature full and partial dentures at our practice for your convenience. Whether you’re missing a few teeth or a full arch, one of our dentists can restore your smile with customized dentures.
Full vs. Partial Dentures
Partial dentures are a great option if you still have some of your natural teeth remaining. They’re customized to match the appearance of your surrounding teeth and fill any gaps in your smile. For patients only missing a few teeth, partial dentures offer a faster and more cost-effective solution than replacing each tooth individually.
If you’re missing a whole arch of teeth, full dentures will restore the appearance and function of your smile. In addition to looking natural and fitting comfortably, full dentures will allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence once again.
Both full and partial dentures can be secured with dental implants for patients who want a more stable restoration. Since they’re anchored to your jaw, implant-supported dentures won’t ever slide out of place or fall out of your mouth.
Another advantage of implant-supported dentures is that they stimulate healthy jawbone growth. This is thanks to the process of your implant fusing with your jaw to replace the natural tooth root, in a process known as osseointegration.
If you want maximum convenience and security, implant-supported dentures may be the best choice for you.
Any patient who wants an attractive, affordable, and minimally invasive tooth replacement may be a candidate for dentures. Unlike dental implants, dentures don’t require a strong jawbone for support, allowing far more patients to qualify without the need for any supplemental procedures.
If you’ve lived with missing teeth for a long time, dentures are likely the most convenient treatment for you.
Maintaining and Repairing Dentures
If you want your dentures to last, make sure that you handle them gently and keep them moist when you’re not wearing them. You can do this by storing them in cold water or an ADA-approved soaking solution. Don’t use hot water or your dentures might warp.
Keep your dentures clean with daily brushing to remove food crumbs and plaque. Brushing your gums and tongue before applying your dentures also helps to prevent stains.
If you damage your dentures, don’t attempt to fix them yourself. Contact our office right away and one of our dentists will deal with the issue.

My dentures broke, how do I fix them?
If you break or damage your dentures, don’t attempt to fix them yourself. Try to store them in a safe place and come in for an appointment as soon as you can.
Does dental insurance cover dentures?
Most dental insurance plans will cover a portion of your treatment, typically up to 50% of the total cost.
What are dentures made of?
Dentures are prosthetic teeth made from porcelain or acrylic resin. They’re set in a gum-colored base that can be made from acrylic resin or chrome cobalt metal.
How do I clean my dentures? How do I remove stains?
You can keep your dentures clean by soaking them overnight, in addition to scrubbing them with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive cleaner every day. If your dentures get stained, don’t use bleach or whitening products, as these often lead to damage. Instead, ask your dentist about a professional polishing.
How can dental implants improve my experience with dentures?
Implant-supported dentures are secured to your jaw for a natural-looking, stable restoration. They’re easy to clean and highly durable, plus they won’t ever slide out of place. Best of all, implant-supported dentures stimulate healthy jawbone growth.
