If you are missing teeth, dentures can provide a positive solution to improving your oral health. We are proud to provide dentures that are designed to fit your mouth for proper function and unique comfort.
Following your appointment, we will provide you with information on at-home care for your dentures. We strongly recommend scheduling follow up appointments for periodic denture cleanings.
While many people think dentures greatly limit what they can eat and drink, this solution significantly broadens your options compared to having missing teeth. Dentures improve oral health as there are now new teeth in place to protect the gums from food particles that can turn into tooth decay and gum disease. Dentures provide protection while giving you a brand new smile you can be proud of.
Will I need full or partial dentures?
If you are looking for a full bottom or top replacement solution for missing teeth, then a full-set of dentures may be an excellent option for you. A removable partial denture is an optimal solution for patients who may be missing one or more teeth in a particular area of the mouth.
What are some pros and cons of dentures vs. implants?
Dentures are attached to a gum-colored base, held in place with either suction or an adhesive, and can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. While full dentures are more cost-effective and less invasive than dental implants, full dentures require more upkeep and maintenance. It is important to clean your dentures regularly so that your gums remain healthy and your dentures continue to look good as new. Factors such as your current oral health, location of missing arches or teeth, bone strength, and the long-term viability for dentures will determine whether or not dentures are the best treatment option for you.
How will my dentures be created?
After determining that dentures are the right option for you, our team will take several sets of dental impressions to serve as the mold for your dentures. The size and shape of the teeth for your denture will be custom-made in our own in-house lab so that the final product provides you with a perfect fit and bite. Our job is to ensure that the look, feel, and functionality of your new dentures are as natural as possible and that you receive your dentures in a timely manner.
