Family Dental Care

You can enjoy corn on the cob or eating an apple again with high quality dentures. When you visit our office, you can discuss your options with your dentist to determine what your best alternative is.

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

Two types of dentures – complete and partial
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

Conventional or Immediate dentures
A complete may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” A conventional type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 6 to 12 weeks. During this time the patient will go without teeth. Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, comfort adjustment usually will be required.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years when they are taken care of properly, however may have to be readjusted, repaired, relined or replaced due to normal wear and tissue shrinkage.

Reasons you may need dentures

  • Complete denture – loss of all teeth in an arch
  • Partial denture – loss of several teeth in an arch
  • Enhancing smile and facial tissues
  • Improving chewing, speech, and digestion
