What is the Texas Denture Center?
The Texas Denture Center is part of Advanced Dentistry of Spring and
provides full service to denture patients. We not only treatment plan
full dentures and implants, but believe in saving any and all teeth when
possible. If this treatment option is available we can perform that here
as well. Through a new FDA-approved procedure using a laser for gum
disease, many times teeth can be saved. Sometimes a combination of
dentures on one arch and saving teeth on another is a great option for
What makes Texas Denture Center different
from other offices that provide similar services?
you often hear about provide some great services. However, they are
limited in the services they can provide in one location. One may
provide great implant teeth replacement but doesn't provide the option
to save any teeth in their office. Others may provide only certain types
of smaller-diameter implants to hold dentures without all of the other
available options. We have set up a system in our office to be able to
provide many options for dentures and even save teeth when possible.
How can you provide all these services in one
By creating a team in one location with a
board-certified oral surgeon, an experienced general dentist,
experienced hygienists, and experienced dental assistants, we can
provide a full spectrum of services for denture patients or patients
considering their custom new denture options.
can you save teeth that would otherwise be extracted?
utilizing a procedure called LANAP, which is an FDA-approved procedure
for treating gum disease, we can save many teeth that might otherwise be
extracted. When at all possible, saving natural teeth is the best
option. When you come in for a consultation we are focused on your
options. By having all the treatment options available in one location,
we can not only recommend the treatment, we can also provide it in the
same office. We also have a full-service hygiene program that focuses on
maintaining patients' remaining teeth and their new implants. Many times
a patient may have an upper denture but had remaining lower teeth. We
want to help you maintain and keep those lower teeth if at all possible.
What options are available for patients
should they require teeth extraction?
We offer a full spectrum
of treatment options, from mini implants to traditional implants. These
options include implant-retained dentures and can even include a
fixed-denture prosthesis like you often hear about. What we have found
is that many patients have limited resources for treatment. While an
upper and lower fixed prosthesis can be a good option for some patients,
they don't necessarily have the budget to afford the procedure. There
are many other great options that can be customized to the patient's
needs at a reasonable cost. A complete set of dentures with two lower
implants can be a great option, while a palateless upper implant denture
and lower implant-retained denture may be a better option for other
patients. We try to show you your options based on your individual case.
We show you examples, models, and computer animations so you can have a
good idea of your options and make an educated decision on what best
Do you provide the "teeth in one day"
There are places that do this type of treatment, but
the treatment is not in one day. It involves various appointments and
you must be a good candidate for this to work well. Also, as mentioned
above, not everyone can necessarily afford the money for this type of
treatment. We can provide a very similar service should this be
something a patient is interested in. Also, many times denture services
in general do provide teeth replacement in one procedure. Patients
having teeth removed will always be given a replacement option the same
day, and one that is affordable to their needs.
What if I already have dentures?
can make custom new dentures. We can make new partial dentures. We can
also use your existing dentures if they are in good condition to attach
to implants to better support them. There are many options for existing
denture patients. What's most important is that you are regularly seeing
a dentist to have your dentures checked and your oral tissues examined
on a regular basis!
What types of implants and materials do you
We only use the best implants available. Many times these
are implants by Nobel Biocare, which is one of the most respected
implant companies in the world. If we are using mini implants, these are
implants offered by 3M. We use the Locator attachment system for
dentures, which is the premier way to attach dentures to implants. There
are also many ways to fabricate dentures. We use only the best denture
teeth available and the best heat-pressure-injected system to process
the dentures. By combining top-quality materials and experienced
clinicians, we can provide a long-term dependable solution for every
Do you accept patient referrals from other
We do accept referrals from other dental offices.
Many dental offices prefer not to provide denture services. Also, many
times in complex cases it's difficult to provide the services for a
patient who might have to go to multiple specialty offices for
treatment. If you have a patient who is difficult to treat, needs
dentures, or needs a combination of laser gum therapy (LANAP) and
denture, we would gladly see your patient for a consultation.
