Dentures

Teeth can be lost to gum disease, decay or injury. Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and benefit your appearance and your health. They can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even help fill out the appearance of your face and profile. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile.

Traditional Dentures
Traditional dentures are an economical way to replace missing teeth. They are made of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (roof of your mouth), and the lower denture is horseshoe shaped to accommodate the tongue. Traditional dentures generally require several appointments for molds, extractions, fittings, and adjustments but cost less than premium dentures.

Premium Dentures
Premium dentures are made from high-quality materials that fit well to the shape and size of the wearer’s mouth and can also be adjusted to reflect the natural color of the oral cavity. They are customized according to both the mouth and other defining elements of the face--cheekbones, jawline, etc.  Premium dentures are impact-resistant and stain-resistant. The material they're made from is strong and designed to mimic the gradual wear of natural tooth enamel, for less wear and longer tooth life.

Implant Retained Dentures

When you have lost your natural teeth, a variety of complications can arise that impact your physical and emotional health. You may find it difficult to speak clearly or chew your favorite foods. You may be embarrassed and try to hide your smile from others. You may also experience shifting among your remaining teeth, causing additional discomfort in your mouth and jaw. 

Implant retained dentures offer a solution that provides comfort and relief. They can replace both upper and lower teeth, giving you a secure, natural-looking option that is not only more comfortable but also more convenient than traditional dentures.

Partial Dentures

A partial denture is a removable, yet natural-looking dental appliance that helps restore the form and function of your jaw by replacing one or more missing teeth. When you are missing one or more teeth, the bite pressures shift in your mouth. Other teeth may begin to move to compensate for the “gap” in your bite, and you may experience shrinking of both the soft tissues and the supporting bone near your missing teeth. This can alter your physical appearance and lead to subsequent problems with your other teeth. A partial denture keeps the underlying structures of your mouth – your gums, jawbone, facial muscles, etc. – active and engaged. It helps prevent further shifting of the other teeth in your mouth while giving you the confidence of having a beautiful, complete smile.
