Dentures are removable replacement teeth that can give you a whole smile! Complete dentures replace all teeth on either the upper or lower jaw, or both. They can either be immediate dentures or conventional dentures. Immediate dentures allow the patient to have their new smile placed immediately after any remaining teeth are pulled. This process eliminates any time without teeth, but also may require more follow-up appointments for adjustments. Conventional dentures allow time for the gums and mouth to heal after pulling any remaining teeth. This allows for a better immediate fit for your final restoration, and we will equip you with a temporary denture while you wait.
Partial dentures are removable replacement teeth similar to dental bridges, and replace only one or a few missing teeth. Unlike a fixed dental bridge, you will be able to take your restoration out for cleaning and eating. We will create your new replacement teeth uniquely for you so they blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth.
