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.

    The best dentist office I’ve gone to! I had a tooth emergency on a Sunday and they were able to get me in same day and right away! Their hours are awesome and truly cater to patients with their late hours and being open on weekends. Dr. Adam Zaher and his assistant were all around exceptional; very informative on care, pricing, and answering any questions I had. It was very reassuring to see how caring everyone is! His assistant even asked if I wanted a beverage, which I did. Lol. She was very professional, friendly, and easy to talk to. I've never felt more comfortable in a dentist offices atmosphere than this place! I recommend this place so much, my whole family has even made appointments!

    I had a sever toothache on a Saturday I called and they saw me at 8:45 pm. Really great guy. He was able to pull my tooth and get me out of pain. I have already recommended him to people I know. Thanks so much for taking good care of me.

  • My daughter was beside herself at having her wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Adam Zaher and his assistant Alma did a wonderful job. And very fast with the removal. This was not our first visit and will not be our last. They worked well with our insurance. The whole office is friendly and open and clean. The real plus is it's open on weekends. Thank you for doing a great job! See you in 6 months.

    Absolutely love this dentist! I took my boyfriend in for tooth pain and Dr Adam was amazing talking him through his tooth extraction making him laugh and did it quickly because he knew he was scared! He was so nice we didn’t have insurance and he gave us a discount on the procedure and the medicine! Definitely recommend him and his crew!

    Finally got around to giving this review I promised. I've had more bad experiences with dentists in the past that left my with a sour taste in my mouth.. pun intended. But Dr. Adam and his amazing staff have given me the opportunity to go without the accompanying dread. Pleasant atmosphere, prompt service, personable people, and services explained in details not numbers and $$$. Thanks!!!! Told y'all I would give a good review!!! 😋

    My decision last summer, July, 2021 to call Longview Dental and Emergency Clinic was based on an emergency the day before leaving on an extended vacation. I was overwhelmed at Dr. Adam Zaher’s willingness to work me in immediately and stay into the night to ensure that my teeth were fixed. I found his office staff to be extremely kind, concerned and caring. I appreciate Dr. Adam’s honest assessments and the detailed way he provides options. He spends time to answer any and all questions and concerns. He is such a good dentist and so flexible in his office hours. He proved his willingness again this week - Feb, 2022 when I needed to see a dentist. So glad to have someone as compassionate as Dr. Adam and his wonderful staff. Katina Green

  • 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. 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!

    I’ve had plenty of teeth pulled but Dr. Zaher made it painless and quick. I didn’t even feel the pressure that you normally feel and didn’t even know he had the tooth out. I highly recommend him. Will be going to him here on out. Definitely 5 stars!

    I was looking for a dentist for a second opinion on a some dental issue I was having. I called Longview Family and Emergency Dental Care. Andrea was so empathetic and she told me that they believed in treating their patients like family. She set up an appointment for me right away. Dr. Adam tried to make me feel at home from the start. I didn't want to have a panoramic done because my insurance was not going to pay for that. He told me not to worry he wouldn't charge me but he needed it for his evaluation. He also took pictures of my teeth and took a lot of time explaining medically what the issues were. He was always kind and patient. I really appreciated that he regarded me as a collaborator in my dental care. He did some excellent work on my teeth that day. I would whole heartily recommend this practice to my friends and family with no hesitation.

  • Hands down best dental care I have ever experienced! I was terrified to have 3 of my wisdom teeth removed, but Dr. Zaher and his staff at Longview family and emergency dental made the process so comfortable and without any pain! I was told about all my options and had all my questions answered clearly. I happened to go back again for a filling and once again great care and service! I am so thankful I found this dental clinic, honest and great care! Thank you !!

    Usually, I’m quite anxious and stressed about even calling the dentist, but this place is amazing! I felt absolutely no pain and the procedures that I had were extremely quick. They explain everything in detail about your personalized dental plan and costs. The staff is personable and friendly and the Dr. puts your care and comfort first, plus he has a cool sense of humor. I am happy that I was referred to Longview Family and Emergency Dental!

Also love that they are open late and on weekends, that way I don't have to miss work when me or my family has an appointment. Very highly recommend!!! If I can work up the courage to get the other wisdom teeth removed, he will definitely be the one to do it!! 😄

    I had a dental emergency on a Friday and found Longview Family & Emergency Dental, and I'm so glad I did!! Dr. Adam and his team are amazing! If you have any anxiety, they are very reassuring, understanding and the little bit of anxiety I had immediately went away upon meeting them. Also, you know how there are people that are good at things and you think "WOW, that's talent"? Dr. Adam has such incredible skill and talent!! I had a root canal, temp & permanent crown procedure. From the 1st appointment for the root canal and temp, through the last for the crown he was so thorough and wanted it to be perfect. The atmosphere is professional but also fun which I loved. The music was great too lol! 😄 They make such a great team!! I give them 10 stars! 🤗

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.
