About Removable Dentures
Losing teeth can happen at any age and commonly occurs because of accidents, trauma, tooth decay, and a variety of oral diseases. Whether a patient loses some or all of his or her teeth, removable dentures can be a fantastic option to restore form and function. Bedford, TX cosmetic dentist, Dr. Scott Staffel, can have full or partial dentures custom-made to fit securely, comfortably, and naturally in a patient’s mouth. Dentures are convenient since they can be easily removed whenever needed. While in the mouth, the dentures can help the patient retain the shape of the mouth, and can also help a patient to eat and speak properly. Dentures are held securely in place with adhesive on the upper and/or lower arches of the mouth.

"I have been going to Dr Staffel for a little over a year and am very pleased with all aspects of the experience. He and his staff are very proficient and friendly.

I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of dental work."- B.D. / Google / Aug 14, 2017

What to Expect
Before dentures can be created and placed, the dentist must prepare the patient's mouth, which may include extractions, cleanings, or filing down the natural teeth. After the mouth is properly prepared, digital X-rays and impressions will be taken of the teeth and sent to a dental laboratory where the custom dentures will be created. While the permanent dentures are being created, the dentist will give the patient temporary dentures to wear. When the custom dentures are completed, the dentist will place the dentures and adjust as needed to give the patient the most comfortable and secure fit possible.
If needed, a patient may schedule a follow-up appointment after the dentures are first fitted so the dentist can check and adjust the fit if dentures are uncomfortable or ill-fitting. Care instructions for dentures will be provided by the dentist to help the patient keep the dentures clean and in good condition for as long as possible. Removable dentures can last anywhere from 2 – 10 years with proper care, including regular dental exams as recommended by the dentist. During these exams, the dentist will check the wear of the dentures and the health of the gums, teeth, and overall mouth. The dentist can also recommend products to use, such as special toothpastes, to keep the dentures in optimal shape.

If you have insurance, our office will contact your carrier to determine what, if any, your insurance will pay, and your personal cost.
