We are in-network with all PPOs and also offer flexible financing options.
Dentures are removable prosthetics that our team recommends to replace missing teeth. We make our dentures from high-quality acrylic bases and natural-looking artificial teeth. The bases blend in with your gums and hold your artificial teeth in place, restoring the look and function of your missing teeth. Because dentures are removable, you can take them out for easy daily cleaning and care.
Our team will design your denture from a series of impressions of your mouth. We use these highly detailed impressions to create a model. You will try on the model several times to determine the proper shape, fit, and color before your final denture is created. Once you receive your completed dentures, you will be able to speak, eat, and smile with confidence again.
With proper at-home care, your dentures will keep you smiling for many years to come. Take your dentures out at night and brush them daily with a denture brush to prevent plaque buildup. Be sure to keep your dentures in a glass of cool water or a denture cleaning solution. This will help your dentures retain their shape and remain in good condition. For a more secure and comfortable fit while eating, you may use adhesive denture pastes.
There are two kinds of dentures available to patients, depending on the extent of your tooth loss: partial dentures or full dentures. Full dentures replace teeth in cases of edentulism, or complete tooth loss. If you still have most of your natural teeth, we may recommend a partial denture. Sometimes called a removable bridge, a partial denture consists of artificial teeth on a lightweight metal framework. The framework fits over your gums and surrounding teeth to fill the gap left behind by tooth loss.
If you’re looking for a stable and permanent tooth loss solution, our team recommends implant-supported dentures. Also called fixed dentures, implant-supported dentures use a series of dental implants to anchor your denture to your jawbone. This requires a minor surgical procedure to place the implants into your jaw.
Unlike removable dentures, implant-supported dentures are the only type of denture that helps restore the bone tissue lost once teeth have been extracted or lost. Implants are made from biocompatible titanium and fuse to your natural jawbone, stimulating tissue growth and preserving the shape and health of your jaw.
Once your denture has been anchored to the implants, you can care for it just like natural teeth. Be sure to brush twice daily to keep your denture clean, mouth healthy, and breath fresh.
