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.

 

  • review rating 5  I am terrified every time I step foot in a dentist office. I have gone to the same dentist for years. I had an emergency and needed to be seen. I called this office and they had me scheduled for the SAME day. I told Andrea how nervous I was and she calmed me over the phone. When I arrived I almost immediately went into the patient room. I told Dr. Zaher how my regular dentist does things and told him how scared I was to try someone new. He assured me I was in good hands. I trusted him. He did exactly how my normal dentist did and went above and beyond with my treatment and care! He made me feel as comfortable as possible and I felt no pain! His staff was friendly and checked on me regularly. I would highly recommend this facility! They made me feel like welcomed and comfortable with their exceptional hospitality!

    review rating 5  This was the most amazing place and people!! My husband was in extreme pain from a wisdom tooth. They got us in on a Saturday at 7:00 pm and took great care of everything. Plus they x-rayed my son, cleaned his teeth, filled multiple teeth, added sealants to a few. All for a great price. We will be back in 2 weeks for more work. The dentist, assistant and office staff are all amazing! We found our dental home!

    review rating 5  I woke up Sunday with extreme pain from my wisdom teeth and my gums! I was going to wait till Monday to go to a dentist because I was sure every dentist was going to be closed, but I was wrong. I was so happy when I saw that this office was open! I called to make an appointment and right away they got me in. Kierra the front desk receptionist was so sweet and helped me with all my questions, she was super friendly and outgoing! Overall, the whole staff made me feel welcome! One of the best dentist offices I’ve gone to! He took out my wisdom teeth, fillings, and did a cleaning all super quick and no pain whatsoever! Thank you for making me feel welcome!

    review rating 5  I was extremely nervous about having one of my wisdom teeth removed, but he made me laugh and got my mind off of it. Super friendly staff!! 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!! 😄

  • review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  I came in on a Saturday in a ridiculous amount of pain after searching far and wide for an open dentist office. The receptionist/assistant was an extremely kind, funny, sweet girl who instantly made me feel at ease. She’s prompt, knowledgeable, and super easy to talk to! The dentist was just as wonderful! He understood that I was a little nervous and did his absolute best (and succeeded) to talk me through everything. He answered all of my dumb questions very attentively and with a smile. I’ve finally found a dentist that I actually like! The office is an hour drive away from where I live, but the quality care and kindness more than makes up for the long drive! Thank you so much, Dr. Adam! I’m forever grateful to you for being open on a Saturday!

  • review rating 5  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.

    review rating 5  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.

  • review rating 5  Extremely friendly and understanding. I was in an unbearable amount of pain and they were very accepting to helping me in my time of need! I’m not in the best financial situation as well, and they made sure I got the work done I absolutely needed and were willing to work with me! I had no problem with scheduling my appointment that day with hardly any notice, finding the office (with hardly any wait once I got there,) them listening and examining to pin point the problem, getting the right pain meds, or getting back in touch after my visit. By far one of the best places to go to. The dental assistant needs a raise! She held my hand when I was in pain and talked me through everything as well as the Doctor himself. I got two molars and one wisdom out at the same time & my healing process has been one of the best by far for any dental work I’ve gotten done. Definitely recommend!!!

    review rating 5  Great experience with Dr. Zaher and Andrea! My father had to have all of his remaining teeth extracted in preparation for a complete set of dentures, and Dr. Zaher was efficient and pain-free—even with a whole mouth of teeth to extract. Both he and Andrea make their patients feel comfortable and welcome during stressful procedures and are more than willing to answer any questions concerning your care. If you need a dentist in Longview, don’t hesitate to make an appointment with Dr. Zaher.

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.
