Dentures & Partial Dentures

A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue.  They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.

There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures.  Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.  A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.

A Complete denture may be either “final” or “immediate.”  A final type is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 12 to 16 weeks.  Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process.  Once the tissues shrink and heal, when complete denture will have to be made.

Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear.

What does getting dentures involve?

The process of getting dentures requires a few appointments, usually over few weeks.  Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture.  One “try-in” appointment will be required to ensure proper shape, color, and fit.  At the final appointment, your dentist will precisely adjust and place the final denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.

You will be given care instructions for your new dentures.  Proper cleaning of your new dental appliance, good oral hygiene, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new dentures.
