If you’ve never had a set of dentures before, you might not know what to expect when it comes to your first set. If you're looking for a new set of dentures from a dentist you trust, we're here for you! No matter where you are on the journey, we want to be there with you every step of the way.
Dentures are used to replace all or part of the natural teeth in your mouth. There are two types of dentures: complete and partial. Complete dentures completely replace all of the teeth in your mouth, while partial dentures only fill in gaps caused by missing teeth. Partial dentures can also help prevent other teeth from shifting.
No matter what kind of dentures end up being the best fit for you, our removable dental appliances will closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
Dentures can be either “conventional” or “immediate.” We will work with you to decide which one is best for you.
Conventional dentures are made after your teeth have been removed and your gum tissue has healed (this usually takes 4-6 weeks). During this time, you will go without teeth.
Immediate dentures are made before your teeth are removed and placed immediately thereafter, thus preventing you from having to be without teeth while you heal. After your dental tissues shrink and finish the healing process, adjustments may be necessary.
Your dentures should last many years but may need to be repaired, remade, or readjusted due to normal use and wear.
