Removable Full and Partial Dentures
Removable full and partial dentures replace a single missing tooth or a full arch of missing teeth. We create natural-looking replacement teeth that complement everything about your smile and facial appearance.
The skill and expertise of a well-respected custom dental lab that uses the highest quality materials ensures that your dentures will look great and provide many years of comfortable wear.
Fixed Implant Dentures
Fixed dentures consist of a bridge supported by mini dental implants and provide a stable tooth replacement that fits comfortably and feels more like natural teeth. Implant dentures also offer benefits that support your long-term oral health. For example, fixed dentures prevent jawbone deterioration and fill out facial features to avoid an aged or sunken appearance.
Caring for Your New Dentures
Don’t clean your dentures with the toothpaste you use for your natural teeth. Instead, use a soft soft-bristle toothbrush and non-abrasive denture cleaner to keep them fresh and in good condition.
To kill bacteria and keep your dentures from drying out, soak them in the cleaning solution overnight. Brush your gums twice daily, and rinse dentures with cold or warm (not hot) water in the morning before putting them in your mouth.
Tips for Eating with New Dentures
Once your dentures are in place, getting used to eating with them requires time and patience with yourself. Your gums may feel sore during this adjustment period, so we recommend initially eating soft foods that don’t require a lot of chewing.
You may also find it beneficial to cut food up and only use your back teeth to chew until you have adjusted to wearing your new dentures. Once you do, there are very few limitations on the foods you can eat, and chewing with a full set of durable, functional teeth should make eating much easier.
Remove Dentures Before Sleeping
Don't make a habit of sleeping with your dentures in, but it can be done if necessary. In these cases, remove and clean dentures before putting them in for the night to ensure they are bacteria-free.
Remember that dentures must remain moist to maintain their precise shape. Because your mouth tends to dry out during long periods of sleep, it is not the ideal environment for dentures. Most patients find it more comfortable to remove them and let their gums rest during the night.
