Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are a common solution for replacing entire sets of teeth on either or both the upper and lower jaws. They are fitted with artificial gums and teeth, offering an effective way to renew your smile after tooth loss. Our office offers two types of full dentures: traditional and implant-supported.
Designed for patients who are missing some but not all their teeth, partial dentures are a versatile solution that securely and aesthetically fills gaps in your smile. They consist of replacement teeth secured to a gum-colored base, connected by a metal framework.
Just like full dentures, they can be either traditional or implant-supported. Traditional partial dentures are removable and clasp onto the remaining teeth for support, plus they are typically a more affordable option. Implant-supported partial dentures offer remarkable stability by being anchored to dental implants.
It's essential to note that each patient's circumstances and needs differ, and what works best for one person may not work well for another. We promise to work closely with you, discussing all options to help determine the best possible denture solution for your unique situation.

No, dentures are not the only option for replacing missing teeth. Other options include dental implants, dental bridges, and partial dentures. The best option for each person depends on their specific oral health needs and preferences.
Proper care and maintenance of dentures are crucial to ensure their longevity and oral health. Dentures should be cleaned daily with a denture brush and mild denture cleaner. They should be removed before sleeping and stored in a denture-soaking solution or water.
It is generally recommended to remove your dentures while sleeping to allow your gums and oral tissues to rest. This also prevents the risk of accidentally damaging or misplacing your dentures during sleep.
It typically takes about 30 days to get used to wearing dentures. It could be shorter or longer depending on the individual. During this time, you might experience some discomfort, increased saliva flow, or difficulty with speech and eating, but these issues should diminish as you get more accustomed to the dentures.
