In some situations where natural teeth are beyond repair, a denture may be necessary. A denture gives you a smile, the ability to chew and supports the cheek and lips. There are two types of dentures, conventional and immediate. Conventional dentures are made when all the teeth have been extracted. This process allows us to make adjustments to the denture prior to its final fitting. Immediate dentures are fabricated prior to the removal of your natural teeth and inserted at the time your teeth are extracted. This allows the patient to maintain their smile during the healing process.
Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. Not only does a partial denture fill in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from changing position. We take great pride in the natural look of the dentures we fabricate for our patients.
