About Removable Dentures
Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Experienced and skilled dentist Dr. Karuna Peravali can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in McKinney, TX and the surrounding area. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At White Lotus Dental, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Make an appointment with Dr. Peravali to obtain more information about removable dentures. With several options, Dr. Peravali can create a customized treatment plan based on your unique needs and smile goals.
You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy and in good condition. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture, or you can keep them as support for a partial denture. At your initial consultation with Dr. Peravali, she will assess your oral health and explain your choices to fit your budget and needs.
What to Expect
In some cases, Dr. Peravali will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken if you are receiving a full denture, which will help customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are created specifically for your smile, Dr. Peravali will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. She will talk about how to clean and care for your dentures. If you have any concerns about the fit of your dentures, be sure to contact our facility so that Dr. Peravali can make any needed adjustments for a fully functional smile.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to White Lotus Dental to get your dentures refitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. At night or whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend cleanings and exams at our McKinney, TX facility so Dr. Peravali can examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. She will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for several years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. During your initial consultation with Dr. Peravali, she will develop your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures as affordable as possible with or without dental insurance, White Lotus Dental takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
