About Traditional Dentures
You may be a good candidate for traditional dentures if you need to have damaged or weak teeth removed, or if you have several missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. We create custom dental appliances for our denture patients to ensure an optimal fit. These dentures can be removed for cleaning and will need to be sanitized at night. Traditional dentures are relatively easy to take care of and are designed to last for several years.
Full and Complete Dentures
Some patients need to see us for both tooth extractions and dentures to replace those teeth fairly quickly. Others may be choosing dentures over dental implants or exploring the idea of getting permanent dentures. In most cases, we will need the bone and gums to heal for about 12 weeks after extractions before we can place a set of conventional dentures. For patients that do want to go without teeth during the healing period, immediate dentures are an option designed for immediate placement after teeth have been removed.
When a patient still has one or more natural teeth in the upper or lower jaw, partial dentures may be the most attractive option for replacing missing teeth. These can be removable or fixed, depending on the needs of the patient. The denture is built around existing teeth to create the most natural-looking result and improve the functioning of the bite.
