Dentures are custom-made oral appliances that work to replace missing teeth. There are two main types of dentures: complete dentures and partial dentures.
Complete dentures are recommended when you need to replace a full dental arch. They may be used to replace one dental arch or both the upper and lower arches, depending on your individual needs.
Partial dentures are recommended when you are missing multiple teeth but still have some healthy teeth remaining. Partials use a thin framework or clasps to attach to the natural teeth and ensure a secure fit for the denture.
When you receive a denture it will take several appointments to complete the process of creating and fitting your dentures. While this lengthy treatment time may feel like a downside, our dentists want to ensure that your denture fits properly and functions correctly once placed in your mouth. After completing your dentures, we will also provide you with instructions on how to properly care for your dentures so that you can keep them in good condition. Each time you return to our office for your regular dental checkups our dentists will also examine your dentures to ensure that they are in good condition and determine if any repairs or maintenance are necessary.
