Get a Full Smile With Natural-Looking Dentures

There’s no reason to feel embarrassed about having missing teeth. You certainly aren’t alone, because about 36 million Americans are missing all of their teeth. Depending on your needs, wants, and oral condition, we may recommend one of the following dentures options:

  • Full Dentures – Conventional full dentures replace all of your teeth. They can be easily removed to clean throughout the day. They’ll be customized to fit snugly and comfortably in your smile.
  • Partial Dentures – If you’re missing only a few teeth or need to have a few removed, partial dentures will fill in the space in your smile. They attach to your natural teeth so they remain in place.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – Your replacement teeth can also be attached to dental implants, which are replacement tooth roots that bond to your jawbone. Implant-supported dentures are fastened to a bar on your implants, giving you a strong bite and beautiful smile.
  • Implant-Retained Dentures – These dentures are locked onto balls positioned on top of your implants.

After you’ve decided on the dentures you want, here is how your procedure will work:

  • We will examine your mouth using digital X-rays. They provide an excellent look at your smile and reduce your risk of radiation exposure up to 90 percent.
  • We use an intraoral camera to gain a close-up look at the interior of your smile. You can even see for yourself on monitors in our care rooms.
  • Your dentist will take an impression of your teeth and other measurements. The information is sent to an outside lab where your dentures are fabricated.
  • When they arrive, you’ll return to our office so we can make sure they are a perfect fit. We’ll adjust the fit if necessary.
  • At any point if you are uncomfortable, we can offer two sedation options to help you remain totally relaxed.

Common Questions About Dentures

Who should get dentures?

People who are missing several teeth or a complete arch of teeth can benefit from getting partial or full dentures. Today’s dentures are designed to look natural and fit comfortably. Dentures can help you feel like yourself again by restoring your smile. We offer a variety of dentures. Our doctors will be happy to help answer your questions so you can find the right option for you.

What can I eat with dentures?

With advances in dental technology, you can eat almost anything you want. You may need to change how you eat certain foods if you have conventional dentures, however. An adhesive helps to keep conventional dentures in place. You also can get implant-supported dentures, which allow you to eat anything you would like. With implants, you can bite and chew practically as well as someone with a full set of teeth.

Will dentures change the shape of my face?

With traditional dentures, you can experience bone loss, which is typical when you are missing teeth. That bone loss can alter the shape of your face over time. You can help prevent this bone loss by getting dental implants to support your dentures. Implants act as artificial tooth roots. As such, they stimulate your jawbone to keep it healthy and strong.
