To many dental patients, dentures seem like a cut-and-dry procedure. However, we offer a wide range of options to ensure that your missing teeth are replaced in a manner that is the best fit for you. From the latest over denture technology to conventional dentures and even partial dentures, we have the one that will fit your mouth perfectly.
If your teeth have to be removed due to decay or gum disease, the gums will need time to heal before you can be fitted for dentures. Conventional dentures are made after the extraction of your teeth. Typically these can be fitted eight to 12 weeks after tooth removal.
Many patients do not relish the idea of waiting weeks for their dentures after their teeth are removed. Immediate dentures are fitted before extraction, so they can be placed the same day as the removal. Because the gums do not have a chance to heal, these dentures may require some additional adjustments and fittings. This can add to the cost of dentures, but eliminates the frustration that comes with weeks of missing teeth.
If you have some healthy teeth that do not need to be removed, you can retain those, and we will fit your dentures around them.
Over dentures are an implant-based denture that offers more stability and eliminates the need for denture adhesives. These dentures attach to the mouth via titanium dental implants that are integrated directly into the jaw bone.
