About Removable Dentures
Adults may loose teeth due to oral disease, but customized dentures can restore the smile to a normal appearance. False teeth by way of dentures can be customized for the full mouth, or just some of the mouth, referred to as partial dentures. This dental restoration treatment, regardless if the dentures are partial or full allow individuals to regain a normal look and function of the teeth. Removable dentures allow patients to use their teeth and mouths with full function, including eating, drinking, and speaking. Unlike permanent dentures that are anchored into the jawbone, these dentures can be fitted for the the lower or the upper, or both, and can be taken out when needed. Our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX use high quality dental laboratories to produce all of our tailored dentures, using the best materials so they appear natural.

"I was terrified of dentists until I became a patient of Dr Devlin. I "was" instilled with a fear of dentists since childhood in Australia (snakes, spiders and dentists are MEAN over there), maturing to adulthood I figured that ignorance was bliss and that if no teeth were black and/or falling out then I didn't need to see a dentist. Now, in my 30's, my wisdom teeth erupted and I was having issues so HAD to see a dentist, I eventually conceded that it was time to face my fear so I went to see the lucky Dr Devlin. (Who my husband had already been seeing) I brought my husband in room for moral support, Dr Devlin and his tech thought that was amusing, my husband was embarrassed but I was "happy wife". I needed my wisdom teeth removed and had more than a dozen cavities. (Oops!) For those if you afraid of needles, I've never felt a single needle stick for local anaesthetics administered by Dr Devlin. He is understanding of my irrational fear and of my medical issues and I always leave with a smile. Dr Devlin and his team are fantastic, they're flexible, cheerful, and I love their customer service. I have always been greeted by my first name as when I walk in the door, Dr Devlin asks about hubby and my fur babies at every visit (I've now had a visit or two, ya know, teeth with more holes than Swiss cheese) My irrational fear gives me some insane facial expressions and poorly timed nervous talking sessions during dental work which is less than ideal but have caused moments of uncontrollable laughter for everyone else in the room. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would."- L.S. / Yelp / Sep 28, 2018
"NEW UPDATE!!9/26/18I had my teeth cleaned by the most knowledgeable dental hygienist ever. She was able to answer my questions while performing the most thorough cleaning possible. If you have not tried this dental office, and are looking for a great place to call your dental home, it will be impossible to find better. 9/11/17Today was my second visit to Highland, and again the experience was absolutely perfect. In fact, soboerfect, that I am going back tomorrow to get some fillings repaired and replaced. If you are looking for a new dentist, I have no problem at all recommending Highland. ORIGINAL POSTAfter spending over 20 years with an amazing dentist here in Pearland, my insurance forced me to look for a new dental home. Honestly, I was more than nervous, I was worried and extremely hesitant to make an appointment with my selected new dentist. Finally, I made an appointment and forced myself to go. When I arrived, I almost rescheduled and left for the day. I stayed, and I could not be happier. First, the young lady at the front desk went out of her way to help get my insurance information set up, and just shoot the breeze to help me relax. After no wait at all, I was welcomed by the young lady who was ready to do exrays and clean my teeth. She could not have been any kinder, or more thorough, throughout my entire exam. She actually did techniques I have never had done in 20 years, including photographing each tooth. Once the Dr came in, he was as personable as any Dr I have ever been around. He also was extremely thorough, and explained everything he was seeing, in great detail. In closing, I can only say, my day at Highland Dental could not have gone any better."- J.H. / Google / Sep 27, 2018
"We've been going to Highland Dental for about 10 years now. We can't say enough about how fantastic they've been to us. Dr. Devlin and crew are truly amazing."- J.F. / Google / Sep 22, 2018
What to Expect
Denture treatment begins with our dental practitioner at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics prepping the patient's teeth to be ready, which possibly could include a full exam and cleaning, as well as extractions or fillings. After the mouth is prepped, imaging X-rays and molded impressions will be created and sent to our laboratory so that the customized dentures can be created. While the permanent dentures are being created, our dentists will provide the patient temporary dentures to wear. When the new dentures are ready our dentists will fit and adjust them as needed for a long lasting fit.
Removal dentures require at-home care instructions so they remain in proper condition. Our dentists at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will give these instructions when the patient receives their dentures. If kept, removable dentures can hold up for 10 years or longer. Our dentists recommend that patients get annual check-ups to verify that the fit of the dentures are acceptable.
Generally, dental insurance covers some of the cost for dentures. The total fee covered depends on the patient's dental policy, but our accounting department at Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics will contact the patient's provider to understand their costs. We invite patients to contact Highland Dental Care and Orthodontics in Pearland, TX to ask about our payment options in case insurance is not accepted.
