Dentures are one of the options available for those patients who have lost their natural teeth. Our goal is to provide dentures that replicate the lost teeth as closely as possible, both in functionality and appearance. To achieve this requires us to get exact measurements by taking molds of the gums and surrounding supportive tissue. This will prevent slippage by ensuring as tight a fit as possible and will help create an aesthetic appearance by determining the best position in the mouth. Remember that as a person ages, their gum and mouth tissues can distort, altering the effectiveness of the current dentures. If you have not been measured for dentures recently and this is what you are experiencing, it may be necessary to get a re-fitting.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are an excellent option for patients who have lost just a few teeth in one or several areas of the mouth. Working much like a conventional orthodontic retainer, these dentures use a plastic mouthpiece fitted with wires to hold replacement teeth in the desired position. A properly customized fit is essential to keeping these dentures in place by locking together with your remaining natural teeth, making messy bonding gels unnecessary.
