We make dentures as a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. We fabricate them to closely resemble your natural teeth and enhance your smile.
A complete denture may be either “conventional” or “immediate.” We make the conventional type after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has fully healed. In order to avoid time without teeth during the healing process, we also make immediate dentures, which are created in advance and placed when the teeth are removed. Once the tissues shrink and heal, we will make adjustments and, oftentimes, replacements to ensure the best fit.
Regardless, they are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear and tear.
Reasons for dentures:
- Complete – Patients who have no teeth in an arch. Complete dentures are typically more comfortable on the upper jaw than on the lower.
- Partial – Patients who have lost several teeth in an arch. Partials also prevent other teeth from shifting.
- Enhancing smile and facial tissues.
- Improving chewing, speech, and digestion.
