Natural-Looking, Long-Lasting Dentures

Today’s dentures are more comfortable and durable than ever before. Whether you need a full set of dentures or a partial denture, our team has the experience necessary to make sure your dentures fit comfortably and securely for many years to come.

Dentures are prosthetic teeth and gums that replace your missing teeth. Typically made of acrylic, porcelain, or metal, dentures can be removable or fixed and are custom-designed to fit your mouth.

Made to resemble natural teeth, dentures can help improve your ability to speak, eat, and smile and restore your overall quality of life.

Categories of Dentures

You’ve most likely heard of full dentures and partial dentures. A full denture is one that completely replaces all of the patient’s teeth. And, just as the name implies, a partial denture replaces just a few missing teeth and is joined to adjacent teeth.

But you may not know that there are two other categories of dentures:

  • Conventional
  • Immediate

Whether you require conventional or immediate dentures will depend on your needs and goals. Let’s take a closer look at these two categories of dentures.

Conventional Dentures

If you’ve already lost your teeth, our team will fit you with a conventional set of dentures. These dentures adhere to your fully healed gum tissue.

Immediate Dentures

If you require an extraction, you have the option of immediate dentures. our team will fit these dentures on your gums immediately after she’s extracted your teeth but before your gums have a chance to heal.

While this style of denture means that you don’t have to live without teeth after your extraction procedure, our dentists will need to adjust and reline your immediate dentures since the shape of your gum tissue will change as it heals.

Advantages of Dentures

Confident Appearance

Dentures can improve your appearance by replacing missing teeth and restoring your smile so you never have to feel self-conscious about flashing a grin or laughing out loud.

Improved Speech

Dentures can aid in improving the clarity of your speech, giving you more confidence whether you’re delivering a speech or presentation or just talking with your friends.

Restored Comfort

Our team can make your dentures to fit your mouth perfectly, providing better comfort than other replacement options.

Unrestricted Diet

With dentures, you can chew and eat with improved efficiency so you can indulge your favorite foods without discomfort or worry.

Increased Self-Esteem

Missing teeth can sink your self-esteem, but dentures can help restore shape and confidence to your face and improve your overall outlook.

More Cost-Effective Treatment

Dentures are typically less expensive than other replacement options — such as implants or bridges.

Dentures Vs.
Dental Implants

If you’re comparing the benefits of dentures and dental implants, we can help. Dentures and dental implants are both prosthetic appliances used to replace missing teeth, but they differ in several key ways.


Dentures are removable and are typically made of acrylic, resin, porcelain, metal, or a combination of those. Our dentists can design your dentures to replace either some or all of your teeth.

Dental implants, on the other hand, are permanent fixtures that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They consist of a titanium post that’s covered with a prosthetic tooth, which looks and functions like a natural tooth.


Removable dentures are typically the cheaper option, and they’re usually easier to get and replace than dental implant dentures.

Durability & Maintenance

Removable dentures are not as secure or durable as dental implants, and they may require more maintenance over time. In addition, because they’re removable, dentures can move around and cause irritation or sores in your gums.

Dental implant-supported dentures, on the other hand, are more of an investment, but they’re more secure and durable than traditional dentures. They can last for many years with proper care, and they typically only require the same maintenance as natural teeth.

Caring for Your Dentures

Here are some tips to help you get the most out of your dentures:

  • Brush your dentures every day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a denture-specific cleanser.
  • Remove and rinse your dentures after each meal.
  • Soak your dentures overnight in a solution recommended by your dentist.
  • Avoid using abrasive cleansers — such as those used to clean dishes — as they can damage the dentures.
  • Avoid using hot water, as it can warp dentures.
  • See your dentist regularly for check-ups and adjustments.
  • Handle your dentures carefully, as they can break if dropped.
  • Store your dentures in a secure container or place them in a glass of water when not in use.
  • Avoid sleeping with your dentures in.
  • Keep your dentures away from pets and children.
