Dentist 101 of Houston announced that it is accepting new patients for denture consultations, fittings, and check-ups. At appointments, its prosthodontists will evaluate the patient’s teeth, conduct x-rays, and assess health history to determine the best course of treatment, which may include dentures.

Full, partial, or implant-supported dentures may be recommended for those suffering from severe tooth loss and periodontal diseases. Dentist 101 can also help patients who already wear dentures, but whose oral appliances have started to feel loose, cause pain, are damaged, or are more than 10 years old.

Full dentures comprised of acrylic, resin, nylon, or porcelain can replace an entire row of missing teeth on the top or bottom jaw, restoring the smile and supporting proper function. They can make it easier for patients to chew and speak. To begin the process, the clinic’s practitioners will take an impression of the teeth, jaws, and gums in order to produce a dental model to send to its lab technicians.

From this model, the technicians will craft custom dentures designed to replicate patients’ natural smiles with a lifelike finish. Finally, the dentists will check the dentures to ensure they fit and function correctly. The Dentist 101 team will also recommend denture care, such as daily cleaning and soaking, as well as annual relining to maintain comfortability. With proper maintenance, dentures can last up to a decade without needing to be replaced. Learn more at

“Our team will make sure to provide patients with pleasant and comfortable appointments. We will find out exactly what your oral healthcare needs and only move forward with what you are most comfortable with”, a spokesperson for the practice said.
