Smile and Chew Again

If you feel self-conscious about your smile because of your missing teeth, chewing problems, and difficulty in speech, then removable dentures are a good option for you to get back your smile and dental function. At Longview Dental Family and Emergency Dental, we recommend removable dentures as a reliable, cost-effective, and natural-looking replacement option for one or more missing teeth. According to the American College of Prosthodontics, about 90% of Americans who have lost all teeth use dentures for tooth replacement.

    5 star review  I cant say enough about how great Dr. Adam and his staff/clinic are. Angels among us for sure!! I broke a tooth while eating breakfast this past Sunday. I knew ER wasnt going to be able to help me due to the injury being dental, so I looked and found Dr. Adam. I called and was scheduled for a same day appointment within an hour of me calling. From the moment I walked in, I was treated like family. Dr. Adam was awesome at explaining my case and making sure I understood what needed to be done. The staff do a great job of making sure you understand your cost before starting what you need. Dr. Adam went above and beyond to help me with EVERYTHING I needed, got my issue fixed and had me on my way in no time. He truly cares about his community and giving back in the best way he knows how. I told him I thought he was an angel for being there to help me on a Sunday. I got my emergency handled and found a new dentist all in the same visit. I'm beyond thankful for what he did for me and HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his clinic to anyone needing a fantastic, caring, get-it-done when you need it, dentist. You wont be disappointed!! Thanks again Dr. Adam! see you again soon!

    5 star review  Quick, painless and very friendly dentist and staff! I usually get nervous when I go to the dentist but they made my whole experience calming. Definitely will be going to them from now on and the fact that they are open late and on weekends is a major plus!

  • 5 star review  I normally do not post reviews but Longview Family and Emergency Dental care deserves recognition for honesty and integrity. I went there for a 2nd opinion and ended up paying much- much less. I was misdiagnosed at the previous dentist. This is really one of the best dental experience I have ever had. Everyone was so nice, the place is very clean and I was very comfortable in a dentist office for the first time in a long time. Highly recommend!!

    5 star review  Thank you all for the warm, friendly, and welcoming atmosphere during my visit. I broke a molar, and the office was able to squeeze me in. Dr. Zaher is an amazing dentist, extremely patient, easy to talk to, takes the time to know his patients. He is passionate about his job, takes his time to explain things to you thoroughly in a way that you understand, readily and happily answers all questions, and is just so knowledgeable about his profession and it shows in his work. I couldn't be more pleased with my experience — very friendly staff. Thanks to the whole staff at Long View Family and Emergency Dental care from a grateful new patient.

    4 star review  Solid 3.5 -1.The doc was very busy and I felt like he was rushing when speaking with me. After the examination (solid $50 spent, no question here), he briefed me on his findings and essentially told me to decide what to do. I clarified some questions with one of his assistants - didn't sound professional, however, I got all of the questions answered. The visit was indeed efficient, but I would rather have a slow and methodical one-on-one process, without the doctor and assistants(I got to meet 4 different ladies haha) constantly dropping in and out of the room to see other patients. +1.Tooth extraction was seamless and painless. Took about 10 min. -1.Setting up a payment plan was also quite easy. However, I'm still baffled that it cost 670 dollars for 1 wisdom tooth extraction (local anesthesia shot), 2 fillings, and cleaning - and that is with my insurance plan! +0.5 They gave me a prescription discount card, so I spent $24 instead of another $50 at the pharmacy. -1. When I think about a dentist's office, I think of a very clean, tidy, pleasant space. This place wasn't in the cleanest or tidiest condition. I wonder if it is because this team works so much that they just don't have time for that. To summarize, I came seeking help with a bad toothache, and left feeling no teeth at all hahaha (anesthesia took 3 hours to wear off which was much faster than I thought it would be) On a serious note, it was a very punctual and efficient visit, but I feel like some of the professional aspect of dentistry was sacrificed for that efficiency.

    5 star review  I found myself visiting family, far from home, and in terrible pain from a stubborn toothache. I was able to be seen on a Saturday late afternoon and had a wonderful experience... even with needing a root canal and a crown. Dr was extremely helpful, gentle, and ensured a pain free service. I’m grateful for the speedy relief and excellent customer service. Highly recommend.

  • 5 star review  I had a toothache in a tooth that was part of a bridge. As the day went on Saturday the pain got worse. I called the emergency office and spoke to Anna. She said come right in. After X-ray , Dr Adam showed me the infection and the root canal that was not good. He discussed everything he was going to do. He knew I was stressed so he gave me several breaks to get myself a rest. It was a removal that was ,to me, a little tricky. Dr Adam did a great job. I will go back again to implants. I have confidence that all will go fine. The experience was a good one. Anna caked to check on me today. That shows that they care about their patients. Thank you both for making me feel at ease!!!

    5 star review  Just had a wisdom tooth removed and they were so great!!! I felt no pain at all and the best part was that I didn’t have to wait longer than 5 minutes in the waiting room which was just long enough to fill out one piece of paper. I will be coming back here for sure for all my dental needs! Super friendly staff as well. Thank you!! -Lauren R.

  • 5 star review  Longview family and emergency dental care, thank you all so much!! 🥰 🙏 First of all very friendly staff, they were able to book me an appointment and have me seen the same day I called! I called late afternoon and they still booked an appointment for the same afternoon no issues! When I got there they were very polite and answered all of my questions as well as helped me get approved for financial assistance, all while attending to several other patients. The dentist is very fast and very efficient I must say! I called with a minor tooth chip knowing I needed a filling and they took care of it no problem! They take the x-rays as necessary, and we're able to address two other broken teeth that I have left unattended for quite sometime. I was surprised at how easy and painless the two additional extractions were! They treated me very well and I am very pleased to have found this dentist. I will return for future bridge work and any other problems that may occur in the future. Thank you Dr. Adam., and your staff!!

  • 5 star review  I love this Dentist Office from the time I walked in to the time I left I felt comfortable and at ease. I needed some teeth pulled they both were giving me pain. Dr Adam Zaher was very friendly he walked me through the steps and made me feel very comfortable about getting my teeth pulled I was so nervous but he encouraged and let me know I was gonna do just fine and I was especially relaxed when he turned the music on. He is a great dentist and is really down to earth. Andrea she is really really sweet. We had a great conversation and she explained to me the steps on how to take care of my mouth after the extraction. I literally called her everyday after I left to ask questions again to make sure I was doing everything right and she had so much patience with me even after waking her up out her sleep at home she was there to answer me. To the new girl sorry I don't remember your name but she was so sweet to. I know you were nervous but you did great just stay encouraged everything will get better for you. I highly recommend this Dentist office the staff are just like family when you have questions or just need them to take a look or something needs to be pulled they will do it. This is a very professional and clean place to go and you will love the staff. You all know I will be back of course. My Dentist Family 5 stars isn't enough I give you all a 10 Thanks again.

What are Dentures?

Dentures are removable appliances that are used for replacing missing natural teeth. They rest on the oral soft tissues and jaw bone and gain their support from the healthy natural teeth or implants on either side of the gap.

 What are Different Types of Dentures?

Depending on the number of teeth they replace, dentures are of two main types; partial and complete. Partial dentures are appliances that are used for replacing one or more missing teeth in a jaw. They possess metallic extensions, known as the clasps, that encircle the tooth crown and provide retention and support to the dentures.

Complete dentures are used when there is no natural tooth remaining inside the jaw. These dentures rely on the underlying soft tissues and the contour of the jaw bone for their retention. The base of full dentures, which rests on the oral soft tissues is made of pink-colored acrylic resin, to match the color of the gums, while the artificial teeth are made from white acrylic resin.

Based on the method of preparation, there are three main types of dentures:

  • Conventional – this is the complete denture that is made after all existing teeth have been removed, and the soft tissues have healed completely. The process for
  • Immediate – for patients who cannot afford to wait while the healing of the tooth extraction site takes place, Dr. Adam may recommend immediate dentures that are inserted the same day when the remaining teeth are removed. We will take measurements and make impressions during your first visit. We will remove the teeth from the models that have to be extracted, and then prepare the dentures. As soon as the teeth are removed, we will insert the immediate dentures. Although you won’t have to live without your teeth during the healing phase, you may need to get your dentures relined replaced once complete healing has taken place.
  • Overdenture – if you have healthy remaining teeth, we can utilize them to provide better support for the dentures and to preserve the underlying bone. Such a prosthesis is known as an overdenture that rests over prepared teeth. Dental implants can also be used for supporting an overdenture.

How are Dentures Prepared?

Conventional dentures are normally prepared in multiple steps.

  • Consultation – first, we will perform a detailed examination of your oral cavity and look at the x-ray images and study models of your teeth. Our dentists will then prepare a customized treatment plan for you and suggest various options for replacing your missing teeth. At this stage, we will also answer your queries and guide you to choose the option which best suits your oral health needs, aesthetic requirements, and budget
  • Impression Making – during the next appointment, we will make impressions of your teeth and send them to the laboratory to prepare customized impression trays for the upper and lower jaws.
  • Bite Recording – during the next appointment, we will record your bite by using wax wafers. The bite is recorded to ensure that your artificial teeth are placed precisely at the same positions as your natural teeth.
  • Tooth Setup – after the bite has been recorded, we will then send it to the laboratory, where it will be placed on an articulator, a special device that mimics the upper and lower jaws. A dental technician will then attach the artificial teeth and carve a wax pattern of the dentures.
  • Trail-in – in the next appointment, we will ask you to wear the wax pattern to ensure that it has an optimal fit and esthetics. Once you and our dentists are satisfied, we will send it to the laboratory for the final processing and fabrication of the dentures.

During the final appointment, we will insert the dentures. Congratulations on getting your new set of teeth!

Looking After Your Dentures

You may feel slight discomfort during the initial few days, which should go away in a few weeks when the muscles of your mouth and the tongue become used to the new addition in the oral cavity. The American Dental Association recommends the following things to take care of your removable dentures:

  • Brushing and Cleaning – make sure you brush your dentures each day. There is no need to apply toothpaste; simply use a brush to remove the food particles. Brushing will also prevent artificial teeth from getting stained. Before you brush your dentures, rinse them in lukewarm water. Never use hot water as it can de-shape the dentures.
  • Avoid Hard and Sticky Foods – while wearing dentures, we do not recommend you eat sticky or hard foods. This is because hard foods may cause your dentures to break, while the sticky foods like raisins, caramel, and candies may dislodge the dentures.
  • Putting your Dentures in Water – when you are not wearing your dentures, you must keep them in water, or any denture cleaning solution. This will prevent their warpage.

 

Removable dentures restore not only your smile but also your self-confidence and ability to speak and eat without difficulty. But what if you accidentally drop and break your dentures? What if you have a broken clasp? Don’t worry, no matter what type of denture emergency you have, whether it’s the day, night, or even a weekend, the dental team at Longview Family and Emergency Dental is there to take care of all your general and emergency dental needs.
