Your ability to eat, speak, and smile can be severely diminished when you are challenged by missing teeth. Whether you are missing a few teeth or all of your natural teeth, our team of experienced dental professionals can offer a variety of denture options to provide you with full functionality once again. Generally speaking, a denture is a removable prosthetic appliance that is used to replace your natural teeth while providing support for your cheeks and lips. There are two basic styles of dentures: full and partial.
Dentures are made from of an acrylic base that is fitted with artificial teeth. The shade of the base can be customized to match the color of your natural gum tissue, while the teeth are made from porcelain or durable plastic. Full dentures are used to replace all of the natural teeth in the upper jaw and/or lower jaw. They provide a complete chewing surface and help to maintain the appearance and structural integrity of your face.
A partial denture is a removable prosthetic that is made from the same materials as a full denture, but is designed to replace some of the missing teeth rather than all of them. It is secured with clasps that anchor onto the adjacent natural teeth. A partial denture is an effective solution for adults who have lost some, but not all of their natural teeth. The presence of the natural teeth helps to stabilize the partial denture while ale preserving the integrity of the jawbone.
DENTURE AND PARTIAL VARIATIONS
We have the ability to customize your dentures and partials in the way that best meets your individual needs. There is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to your oral health. There are a variety of options for your replacement teeth:
- Immediate Denture – A denture that is made in advance and placed into the mouth immediately after one or more natural teeth are extracted. This is also known as a healing denture.
- Partial Denture – A removable appliance used to replace multiple missing teeth.
- Implant Supported Denture – A denture that relies on one or more dental implants for stability.
- All-On-4® – A permanently affixed dental bridge that is supported by a system of dental implants.

How much do dentures cost?
The price of dentures can vary based on a person’s unique situation and needs. For instance, some people may require preliminary treatments before receiving dentures such as tooth extractions. Dentures themselves fluctuate in price depending on the type required. When it comes to determining the costs associated with treatment, we recommend speaking with our financial coordinator after your consultation. Our team will help you file your insurance claims, if you have dental insurance, as well as give you estimates regarding your specific treatment plan.
What are the different types of dentures?
There are two types of dentures. The first type, full dentures, is used to replace all the teeth in either the upper or the lower jaw. Two full dentures can be used to address total tooth loss in the oral cavity. The other type, partial dentures, is designed to replace only the teeth that are missing without modifying or removing healthy biological teeth. Partial dentures allow a patient to retain healthy natural teeth and fill in the gaps of their smile with a prosthetic. Full dentures rest on top of the gums while partials are attached to a metal band that features clasps that attach to the backs of teeth.
How often should dentures be replaced?
Dentures will need to be repaired or replaced from time to time. The frequency one might require repairs or replacement depends on a few different factors. When teeth are missing, the bone is left unstimulated by their roots thus leading to bone deterioration. As the jawbone atrophies, dentures will not fit as well as they used to. Once bone begins to atrophy, it will only worsen with time, thus making dentures more and more likely to fit uncomfortably. Wear and tear on dentures, over time, may also require repairs. If a denture requires repairs, it is normally because of unique or unpredictable circumstances.
What are implant supported dentures?
Implant supported dentures are an innovative method for increasing the durability and functionality of prosthetic teeth. Dental implants have been used to replace single missing teeth for quite some time. Now, however, a patient can have a series of smaller dental implants strategically embedded throughout their jawbone that will be used to support a full denture. Implant supported dentures are ideal for preventing bone deterioration as well as increasing oral function when compared to conventional dentures.
