Do you have broken, missing, or loose teeth? Do you have “hopeless” teeth? We understand how important it is to have a healthy and confident smile. That’s why we offer a full range of dentures, including partial and complete dentures. Dentures are a great option for patients who have lost one or more teeth. We can provide a full set of dentures, partial dentures, or even implant-retained dentures.
You shouldn’t have to go through life without a full set of functional and comfortable teeth. When you have missing or damaged teeth, you are more at risk for gum disease and facial sagging, among other issues. Dr. Glen Wainwright provides custom-made dentures and partials to help our patients with missing teeth. We also provide full smile restorations.
Dentures in Cedar Park, TX
Dentures, or false teeth, are a complete set of artificial teeth that your dentist can use to replace missing teeth. Our dentist provides partial dentures when there is one or more gaps in the mouth. Complete or implant-supported dentures will replace a full row of missing teeth. Traditional dentures are a removable replacement, and are either full or partial. They can consist of acrylic, metal, or plastic.
We can divide partial dentures further into three categories: full coverage, proximal coverage and distal coverage. Full coverage is a type of partial denture which covers all the gums in the mouth and replaces all of the missing teeth except for some molars on either side. Proximal coverage is a type of partial denture which covers all the gums in the mouth, excluding the molars on either side. Distal coverage is a type of partial denture which covers only the front surface of teeth, and only partially replaces the missing teeth.
In recent years, there has been an increased interest in implant-supported dentures due to their long-lasting nature and better health benefits. The below are some common questions regarding our custom-made dentures and partials.

My dentures slip around in my mouth. What can I do about this?
In addition to traditional dentures and partials, Austin Dental Care provides implant-secured dentures and all-on-four dentures. These options require a minor surgical procedure to place dental implants beneath your soft tissues. For all-on-four dentures, you will need four dental implants on the top and bottom of your gums. These implants attach to a firm denture that remains in your mouth and provides long-lasting stability. Implant-secured dentures work similarly except that the dental implants help anchor removable dentures while in use.
How do I know what denture is right for me?
Traditional dentures, all-on-four dentures, and implant-secured dentures all provide patients with a wide variety of options for tooth replacement. Dr. Wainwright can help you navigate these options and determine which is best for your lifestyle and budgetary goals. You can rest assured that you will leave your denture consultation fully informed on your treatment options.
