Full Dentures

Full dentures are ideal for patients who have had their natural teeth removed. When patients have to remove all of their teeth, immediate dentures are placed so no one ever has to walk around without teeth. These are adjusted sometimes as your tissue and bone is healing and changing. Upon healing, the detures are realigned to get a more ideal fit.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are ideal for patients who have large gaps created by several missing teeth. They are similar to bridges, however, they are removable. There are both metal framework or nonmetal options for choose from.

Implant Options

Dentures are not anchored to your jaws and become loose over time. Implants help to maintain the jaw bone and increase the function of your dentures by securing them to the bone.

Caring For Dentures

Daily maintenance is required in order to prevent the growth of bacteria and avoid permanent staining. It is important to treat your dentures as though they are real teeth to keep them bright and free of plaque. If your dentures break or crack, schedule an appointment right away. Ill-fitting dentures can irritate the gums and other areas of the mouth, leading to infection.

Watch Home Maintenance for Dentures

  • Softly brush your dentures daily to prevent the growth of bacteria. A soft-bristled brush will prevent scratching the surface of the dentures.
  • Rinse your dentures after every meal to dislodge any food particles.
  • A cleanser is recommended to clean and disinfect your dentures on a daily basis. Many kinds of toothpaste and mouthwash can be too abrasive for dentures.
  • Keep your dentures in a dental solution when they are not in use. Dentures that dry out can crack and break more easily than dentures that are kept moist.
  • Thoroughly clean your gums and tongue daily.
