Dentures

Dentures are used to restore your smile and mouth function when teeth have been lost.  There are two types of dentures available:

  • Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. They usually consist of replacement teeth attached go a gum-colored plastic base which is held in place in the mouth.


  • Complete dentures are used to completely replace all teeth

New dentures may feel awkward or loose for the first few weeks until the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place and you are comfortable eating and speaking.


Never hesitate to call if your dentures become uncomfortable or no longer fit! There is natural bone loss after teeth are missing which requires adjustments to your denture in order to keep a proper fit
