Dentures Can Help!

A denture is a prosthetic dental appliance used to replace missing teeth and surrounding tissue. This appliance is supported by the nearby soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity. For people wearing dentures, it is engineered to look like your original teeth and gums, boosting your looks and helping you chew and speak normally once again.

Eat The Foods You Love

With our doctors overseeing the process, you will find that dentures are a great restorative dentistry solution when it comes to helping you chew all the harder to consume fiber-rich foods.

This will positively impact your general wellness, overall appearance, and self-confidence too!

Full Dentures

This is a full set of replacement teeth connected to a thin plastic base colored to look like your natural gums. This base is custom-fitted to grip snugly and sit comfortably over your gums, allowing you to converse, dine, and laugh normally again.

Partial Dentures

When you are fortunate enough to not be missing an entire arch of teeth, a partial denture designed by our team could be enough. These work the same way as full dentures and they too are artificial teeth set in a natural-looking base that fits over your gums. To allow for additional strength, they use clasps to hold onto the teeth near the gap.

Implant-Retained Dentures

Implant-retained dentures work similarly to traditional dentures, except that they are anchored to the jawbone by dental implants and secured to the implants using ball attachments. The dental implants actually fuse to the bone and become a permanent part of your mouth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures work like implant-retained dentures, except that they are anchored to the implants using a bar attachment instead of balls. Like an implant-retained denture, they preserve the jawbone by fusing to it and discouraging deterioration.
