Every tooth is invaluable to your quality of life and your oral health. Losing several teeth can have devastating consequences. Now, you not only feel insecure, but you also miss eating your favorite foods and your oral health is suffering. Dr. Thomas J. Novak can rebuild your smile with partials. Although they have a bad reputation for looking fake, dentures in Weatherford now look more realistic than ever. You can invest in your self-esteem with a custom-fit prosthetic.
Removable dentures are often the ideal option for those who need a convenient treatment or are in the process of replacing their missing teeth with a more permanent solution, like dental implants. Partials are used for those who have lost several teeth but still have a few natural ones remaining. Custom-made prosthetic teeth are attached to a gum-colored base, which connects to a metal framework. This allows it to clip or clasp onto your remaining teeth to hold it in place, so you can enjoy:
To start your journey to a complete smile, you need a consultation with your dentist in Weatherford, Dr. Novak. He creates a customized treatment plan after a visual examination and taking diagnostic images.
He takes an impression of your jaw to get the measurements necessary to create a model you can try on. This helps to determine the ideal shape, fit, and color. The specifics for your partial are sent to a dental lab, where they create it with precision. After it is sent back to our office, you come in to try it on. You may need minor adjustments to ensure it is comfortable while meeting your exact needs.
It may take you a couple of weeks to get used to your new smile. Any discomfort you experience should subside within a few days. It is best to start with softer foods that are cut in small pieces until you adjust.
There is no specific cost for partials because the amount is based on several factors, such as the number of teeth you are replacing, and the materials used. Many dental insurances cover a portion of their cost. Our office helps you maximize the value of your benefits to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. We accept a variety of payment options, including third-party financing with CareCredit, to keep your new smile affordable.
Your new smile can last for several years with the right care, such as:
