Important Information about DenturesGenerally speaking, there are two types of dentures available: complete sets and partials. Partials are designed for people who are missing just a few teeth. These durable appliances are made of one or more artificial teeth set in a metal frame that fits snugly over adjoining existing teeth. Typically, partial dentures can be removed by the patient for cleaning purposes.
What You Need to Know about DenturesComplete sets of dentures are designed for people who are missing all of their teeth, or for those that need to have their teeth removed for some reason. If you need to have your teeth extracted, there are two types of dentures available to you after the extraction procedure:
- CÐ¾nvÐµntÑ–Ð¾nÐ°l full dÐµnturÐµs: The patient is fitted with conventional dentures after all teeth are removed and the gum tissue has completely healed.
- Immediate full dentures: The patient is fitted with this type of denture immediately after his or her teeth are extracted. The advantage with an immediate full denture is that the patient doesnâ€™t have to live without teeth while the gum tissue heals. The disadvantage is that these dentures will require relining at some point as the gum and bone tissue changes shape to a certain degree during the healing process.
The Durability of DenturesBoth full and partial dentures are intended to last for many years. However, they do require adjusting from time to time. Dr. Argandona recommends that patients with dentures visit her office once a year to ensure that the appliances are fitting properly.

Great experience at Live Oak in Leander! Friendly staff, the Dental Hygienist Janine was great and very sweet. The dentist Priscila Donangelo was amazing – very knowledgeable, attentive, explained me everything that was going on and need to be done.
Dr. Argandoña and Dr. Donangelo are both great dentists and are also very caring. They are thorough but not pushy and they try to explain everything very well. I have also found both of them to be gentle, warm and compassionate, as well as accessible when I need them!
