The best way to make the healthiest transition from natural teeth to dentures is to take good care of your mouth throughout your lifetime and see a dentist regularly.

We will be sensitive to your individual situation, without judgement, and help you navigate all your options.
Dentures are not what they used to be thirty or more years ago, things have changed quite a bit and dentures today are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth if fitted properly and worn correctly.
A lot of this is due to the evolution of dentistry and dental treatments, and the quality of modern dentures is improving all the time. There are many different reasons why a person might need replacement teeth. If a person takes exceptionally good care of their teeth, careful brushing and flossing, eating a healthy diet, and attending regular dental check-ups and appointments, there is every chance that their natural teeth will last them all their life. However, many do end up needing dentures. If you’re not sure whether you might be a good candidate for dentures, or partial dentures, come see us. We can help!
For example, you may only require a partial denture, which is made to replace multiple missing teeth surrounded by healthy natural teeth. Partial Dentures are attached to your natural teeth with custom clasps, making them more natural looking.
Immediate Dentures means you will never be “toothless,” we take impressions of your existing teeth before your extraction, and a removable custom denture is created so you have teeth immediately.
Overdentures go over natural teeth to help support the bone and Dental Implants are screwed into your jawbone at the places where your teeth are missing or have been extracted, providing better stabilization and making them more convenient.
Getting dentures can have multiple benefits besides replacing missing or decaying teeth, they can also prevent any remaining teeth from shifting in your mouth which could be causing you pain. Years of wear and tear may have caused your natural teeth to deteriorate. Replacing them with dentures can be a way to alleviate pain, eradicate persistent root infections, and help you to live an easier life as far as dental health goes. In addition to improving your oral health, you will also benefit from clearer speech, restored facial appearance, and a brighter smile!
If you or a loved one feel you might be a good candidate for any type of denture, come see us at one of our convenient locations and let us help you determine the best type of denture for your situation and budget. First time consultations are always free and will provide you with the information you’ll need to make this important next step in your dental health.
