Our experienced dentists may recommend dentures if you have lost multiple teeth. Dentures are a custom-made, removable oral appliance consisting of prosthetic teeth set into a plastic base. They are designed to fit comfortably in your mouth and restore your appearance as well as your ability to smile, speak and eat normally and confidently.
There are two main types of dentures available, and our dentists will work with you to determine which type of denture is best for you.
- Complete Dentures — Complete dentures replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch. You may receive a complete denture for one or both dental arches.
- Partial Dentures — Partial dentures are recommended when you still have healthy teeth remaining. They include clasps or a framework to attach to your natural teeth and provide you with a secure and stable fit for your dentures.
When you receive dentures, plan on several appointments with our dentists. The process of creating dentures may require several different fittings as we need to ensure that your denture fits and functions properly. Our team will also provide you with instructions on cleaning and caring for your dentures so that they stay in good condition.
Your dentures will also require maintenance or repairs periodically to ensure they remain in working condition. Our dentists will check your dentures at each of your regular appointments to make sure they are still comfortable and working properly for you.
