v-smile3Periodontal disease, injury and tooth decay can all cause a loss of your natural teeth. However, we can bring back the smile on your face with dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, dentists can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable for the patient.

Types of Dentures

There are two types of dentures: complete and partial.

  • Complete full dentures cover the patient’s entire jaw, replacing all of the patient’s natural teeth. Full dentures can also be held with the security of implants.

  • Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth by attaching via a metal framework to your natural teeth. Partials are for patients needing to replace a few missing teeth. These dentures can be used either on the upper or lower arch. Partials should be handled with care, and should be cleaned each day to remove food particles and plaque.

To know which type is best for you, be sure to ask your doctor.

It may take some time to adjust to your dentures. Speaking and eating may feel different at first, but these regular activities will resume normally once you are accustomed to your dentures.

Denture Repairs

Types of repairs include:

  • Replacing broken or missing teeth
  • Adding teeth to partials after natural teeth are extracted
  • Fixing dentures that are fractured or broken
  • Fixing metal clasps

Repair prices can vary.

Denture Relines

Dentures are custom made for each patient to ensure proper fit. Natural changes in the mouth over time, such as bone and tissue shrinkage can make dentures feel loose and unstable. Dentures are also subject to wear and tear over time. We can reline your dentures to correct your fit.
