Dentures & Partial Dentures
A denture is a removable appliance to replace missing teeth. Dentures are made to resemble natural teeth and may improve a smile.
There are two types of dentures – complete and partial. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. In addition, partial dentures prevent other teeth from shifting.
Reasons for dentures:
- Complete Denture – Loss of all teeth
- Partial Denture – Loss of several teeth
- Enhancing smile and facial tissues
- Improving chewing, speech, and digestion
What is the process in receiving dentures?
The process of receiving dentures will require several appointments over a 2-week period. Impressions and measurements are taken and used to create a custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, we will adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
Once facial muscles and gum tissue adjusts to the dental appliance, all chewing, speech and saliva flow will return to normal. Care instructions will be provided for your new dentures.
There’s not one bad thing to say about Dr. Robbins or his staff. They are simply amazing, comforting, and professional! I’ve never had a better experience with a dentist!
Just like his father in law before him (Mike McBride), Jeremy is the only one I trust my (and my kids’) smile with. Great hygienist staff as well. Could not be more happy with this office!!!
