Dentures are a removable device used to address missing teeth. They are painless, flexible and a less-expensive alternative to surgery.
Dentures have come a long way in the last half-century. Gone are the clunky dentures that constantly fell out, fit poorly, and caused slurred speech.
Come in today for a consultation to see how dentures can make you feel both better about yourself as well as improve your overall health.
What are the different types of dentures?
During your consultation, we’ll devise a treatment plan that fits your exact needs, recommending whether full or partial dentures are the best solution for you.
There are several types of dentures. Most commonly found are complete dentures that are a total replacement for teeth. Another option includes implant-supported dentures that work very well for patients that need extra support. Finally, the last option would be partial dentures, which incorporate your natural, healthy teeth into a system that is strong and healthy.
How are full dentures made?
Full dentures are made out of a plastic mold and are designed to perfectly mimic your gums and teeth.
One of the challenges of full dentures is their tendency to move or slip around the mouth. If you don’t have strong teeth available to anchor the dentures, a possible solution is to perform implant surgery before fitting you with dentures.
Should I consider implants?
Implants are small screws that are affixed to the jawbone, providing a strong, comfortable, and permanent anchor for your dentures. Our skilled surgeons know exactly how to place implants, guaranteeing minimal downtime and a short recovery period.
What if I only want partial dentures?
If you only need partial dentures, implant surgery is not likely required. We can create a metal framework around your existing teeth to firmly hold your dentures in place.
While plastic is available for use in temporary partial dentures in case of emergency or during your recovery from implants, metal is considered the most durable solution. It’s strength and endurance ensure that your dentures will stay in place for the long haul!
How does the process work?
We capture the details of your mouth using impressions before constructing your custom dentures. After creating a perfect image of your mouth, our team goes to work, making sure that your dentures will have a perfect fit. We’ll make adjustments over several appointments, making sure each time that your dentures settle into place perfectly and have the most effective and optimal fit.
From start to finish, the entire process usually lasts around four or five weeks. We provide temporary dentures to hold you over until your permanent dentures are ready to go.
Dentures are an affordable and easy fix as people age.
