A trusted doctor may recommend people to get dental implants when they have one or more missing or damaged teeth. There are various types of dental implant options that can be used to replace missing teeth. These dental implant options are single dental implants, multiple dental implants, implant supported dentures, and full mouth dental implants.
After one of these dental implant options are surgically placed in a patient’s mouth, a doctor can give patients a temporary dental prosthetic in Corpus Christi, TX until the patient is ready to get the final prosthetic. Temporary dental prosthetics are typically made from the material acrylic (pmma). There are many reasons why patients should get a temporary dental prosthetic.
A temporary dental prosthetic is a type of dental restoration designed to replace a patient’s missing teeth after their dental implant surgery. A temporary dental prosthetic can give patients a more aesthetically pleasing and functional smile after their dental implant surgery. A temporary dental prosthetic is commonly used as a short-term solution while a permanent prosthetic is being planned or fabricated.
Temporary dental prosthetics are usually made from polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) which is a strong, durable plastic material that can be molded and shaped to mimic the form of natural teeth. The prosthesis is made from a mold of the patient’s teeth, which is created in a dental lab to fit every patient’s unique smile.
The temporary prosthetic is then cut, shaped, and polished before it is placed in the patients mouth. A temporary dental prosthetic does not typically require any cementing or bonding and can be easily removed for cleaning. It is an excellent option for those who need a temporary solution.
A dental implant is composed of a dental implant post, usually made from the material titanium, that is placed into the patient’s jawbone. The temporary prosthetic can then be placed on top of the dental implant until the patient is ready for their permanent prosthetic. Once the temporary dental prosthetic is placed, patients can eat, speak, and smile normally.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
