For adults who have lost all of the natural teeth or for those who are likely to experience complete tooth loss in the near future, we offer a variety of custom denture services. A custom-made denture can serve you well for many years, and the addition of even a few dental implants can extend the life of your denture even further. If complete tooth loss has negatively impacted your life, you can trust our team to provide you with a new smile and a brand new outlook!
Conventional Full Dentures
A conventional denture is a common choice for patients who desire complete tooth replacement. It’s a removable appliance that will enable you to speak and eat effectively, and it features a full row of attractive artificial teeth. If you have worn the same set of dentures for years, we can design a new set to provide you with an updated appearance and an improved fit.
For first-time denture wearers, our experienced team can coordinate the removal of the remaining teeth and the development of the new denture to eliminate or reduce the amount of time that you’ll be without teeth.
We know that the jawbone can be expected to shrink considerably when all of the teeth are missing. This loss of volume can contribute to an unstable denture. To address this common concern, we may suggest an implant-supported denture as an alternative to the conventional denture.
An implant-supported denture looks just like a conventional denture, but is held in place by dental implants. The implants may snap together with the underside of the denture directly, or they may be used to anchor a thin metal bar upon which the denture can be seated and removed. This design allows for a denture experience that feels more natural and secure than the conventional denture. And, because of the underlying dental implants, the loss of bone volume in the jaw is significantly reduced.
Your dentures may occasionally require some professional maintenance, and we are prepared to assist you when necessary. Broken denture teeth, broken acrylic, denture relines, and denture adjustments can be performed in our office and we’ll work to ensure that your teeth fit and feel comfortable as quickly as possible.
