If you have lost many or all your teeth, our dentist may recommend a denture to replace them and restore your smile. We offer both complete and partial dentures to meet your needs and help you regain your smile as well as your ability to chew and speak normally.
Dentures are a type of custom-made oral appliance. They are designed to replace your teeth and give you back a confident and natural smile. There are two main types of dentures:
- Complete dentures – complete dentures replace all the teeth in your upper or lower dental arch.
- Partial dentures – partials are recommended when you have some healthy teeth remaining. This type of denture includes clasps or a thin framework which attaches to your remaining natural teeth to give you a more secure and stable appliance.
When you receive dentures, plan on having several appointments with our dentist. We want to ensure that your dentures fit and function properly and it may take a few appointments to complete your dentures. Please be aware that your dentures will require regular maintenance to stay in good condition. Our dentist will examine your dentures at each of your regular appointments to determine when maintenance is needed. We will also provide you with instructions on how to care for your dentures and keep them in the best possible condition.
