A denture is a removal appliance used to replace missing teeth and gum tissue. Dentures can replace all or several teeth and improve mouth function, speech and even digestion. Whether you need complete or partial denture implants we’ll work with you to closely resemble your natural smile and protect your oral health. Let’s discuss whether complete or partial dentures are a good fit for you.

Partial dentures may be an option when some healthy teeth remain. False teeth can be attached to a plastic base and metal framework which hold the partial denture in place. A full denture may be your best option when there are no or few health teeth remaining.
Good denture care can extend the life of your dentures and maintain your overall oral health. Make sure to remove and rinse dentures after eating and brush your dentures at least once per day. Make sure to soak your dentures overnight in a denture-soaking solution. Allowing your dentures to dry out could cause them to warp or crack. After removing your dentures, clean your mouth out and be sure to rinse your dentures before putting them back in your mouth. If you’re in need of denture repair, contact your dentist and we will often be able to make repairs the same day.
In addition to using a denture-soaking solution and regular brushing, there are several ways to remove stains at home. White vinegar is an all-natural disinfectant that can help clean stains and inhibit the growth of fungus.
Dental implants are a good option when you only require one or two false teeth. Implants generally involve drilling support into the jaw which will support your false teeth. On the other hand, partial dentures are the best option when the gums or jaw are not healthy enough to support a dental implant and full dentures may be required if most or all teeth are missing. The decision will affect what your smile looks like before and after and what the overall cost is.
Dentures are used for the complete replacement of missing teeth. Dental veneers are more appropriate for less dramatic cosmetic dentistry needs where a thin layer of ceramic or resin is placed over an existing, healthy tooth to improve the shape, size or color. The decision will affect what your smile looks like before and after and what the overall cost is.
For the most part, your dental crown can be cared for in the same way you care for your other teeth. Regular brushing and teeth cleaning will help keep your crown clean. You will also need to keep an eye on any signs of degradation, which will happen eventually over time.
