IMPLANT AND TRADITIONAL DENTURES IN GRAPEVINE TEXAS
Have you ever thought “It would just be so much easier to just yank out all my teeth than fix them?” Now, in most circumstances, almost every dentist would argue against you to keep your natural teeth at all costs.
But in other cases, Yes! You need dentures!
Want to know your options? There are now available three great solutions to fit each patient’s lifestyle, budget, and age. Traditional Dentures, Snap-on Dentures, Implant-Supported Dentures!
They are just like they sound, your Grandma’s dentures. This type of denture is the most cost-effective way to replace all your missing teeth. There are some pros and cons that should be considered before making a decision on this type of denture. Anytime a patient is looking into a prosthesis of any kind, there will be huge lifestyle adjustments. Traditional Dentures take about four to six months’ worth of chair-side adjustments with the dentist while your gums continue to heal and shrink. Most patients are comfortable with the fit for their upper denture, while some do continue to have gagging and suction issues, making sticky adhesives a must. A lot of patients, after their six months’ worth of adjustments still find discomfort in the lower denture, mostly due to the tongue, making the denture easy to dislodge.
Implant-Supported Dentures, also referred to at times as just over-dentures are a good compromise for patients that need to lose all their teeth but have a bad gag reflex or just want added security that their denture will not slip or dislodge during a meal or company meeting.
Although the four to six months of necessary healing remain the same, the end results are dentures that snap in-to and out of place. Adding two, four, or up to six implants at the time of the extractions allows the implants to integrate into your bone making a concrete structure during the healing process to help support dentures. By adding these implants, your denture can fit smaller, eliminating the gag reflex. The implant and denture will snap into place so it will not move while you are eating or giving a presentation-eliminating the chance of those embarrassing moments.
Tired of dealing with the daily burden of your current dentures? Tired of altering your eating habits and experiencing occasional discomfort? The Grapevine Dentist offers the All-On-4 or Implant-supported dentures a solution toward permanent dentures that look and feel real with added comfort and effectiveness. Better known as (Teeth In One Day), All-On-4 gives the patients who have periodontal disease and extensive decay an outlet to new teeth in just one day! These Supported Dentures are a fixed prosthesis supported by four (4) implants. In some instances, six (6) implants may be necessary. The illustration below offers a quick glimpse into the procedure implementation.
Emerging dental technology avoids the need for sinus lifting, bone augmentation, and even bone grafting in order to carry certain procedures. This is because the back implants are designed to be longer and angled in order to avoid the sinus cavity located on the upper jaw.

“I can’t recommend them enough! I have lots of dental problems, so I’ve been to all kinds of dentists for a long, long time — this office isn’t just the best dental office I’ve ever been to, it’s the best overall medical clinic of any kind. I explained on my first visit that my wisdom teeth were very painful and I had a lot of anxiety about getting them removed, and they really listened — they agreed without arguing that I would be more comfortable with total anesthesia. They were on hand during my entire recovery, worked me in when I became concerned later and were incredibly gracious the whole time. Never once did I feel like the staff didn’t want to listen to me, or were annoyed when I had questions….
There’s nothing worse than having a healthcare provider that you feel you can’t trust. That will NEVER happen here; if you’re scared of the dentist’s office like I am, look no further. They will listen, they will care, and they won’t let you down.
Thank you, everyone, at The Grapevine Dentist.”
“The entire staff is completely awesome. I got my first tooth removed today and i was super nervous, but everyone made me feel very relaxed and even helded my hand. I cant thank everyone enough..”
