Both a denture and partial will help to transform your entire smile. If you’re missing your natural teeth, there is no reason for you to feel ashamed or embarrassed. Instead, we can make a personalized and customized denture to fit your needs. The denture is meant to last for many years and provide you with a natural-looking, durable smile.

The reason someone would need a denture is because they’re missing either all or most of their own teeth. You might have issues chewing, eating or talking because of the teeth you’re missing. In order to improve your smile and how it functions, we’ll recommend having a denture made. The denture is removable and should be cleaned nightly before replacing it in the morning.
Both a denture and partial are ideal for individuals who are missing teeth. They are beneficial for those who cannot have implants placed or who do not want to have a bridge made. We will examine your teeth to determine if and when a denture may be needed. We will recommend the appliance based on our own findings and the health of your current teeth.
We start the denture process by taking impressions of both your gums and teeth. We then send these impressions to a local lab where your new appliance is created for you. You will come back in after roughly two weeks so that the denture can be placed. You will need to remove the denture nightly to keep it looking its best and to clean it properly. Most dentures are able to last for about seven years or longer depending on how well they are cared for during that time and how rough you are when wearing the prosthetic.
If you think you might benefit from a denture or partial, call us today and we can get you in for a convenient consultation.
