Partial dentures are a great option for patients who want to improve their oral health and their appearance.
- Implant-Supported Dentures: Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who have lost several or all of their teeth. Implant-supported dentures are anchored to dental implants for a secure and stable fit. Our team will guide you every step of the way, from the initial consultation to the implant placement and the final fitting of your dentures. Implant-supported dentures are a great option for patients who want a long-lasting and natural-looking solution.
- Traditional dentures: These are removable prosthetic devices that are designed to replace missing teeth. They are typically made of a combination of acrylic resin and metal and are customized to fit the unique contours of the patient’s mouth.
- Temporary dentures, also known as immediate dentures, are designed to be worn for a short period of time while the patient’s mouth heals after tooth extractions. They are typically made in advance of the extractions so that they can be inserted immediately after the procedure. Temporary dentures are usually made of a soft, pliable material that is easy to adjust as needed. They are not meant to be a long-term solution, but rather a temporary replacement until the patient can receive a permanent denture or other tooth replacement option.
Preparing For A Dentures Appointment
Before your dentures appointment, it is important to communicate with your dentist about any concerns or expectations you may have.
You should also gather any relevant information such as x-rays or dental records.
Your dentist may also request that you have any remaining teeth extracted or undergo any necessary dental treatments prior to getting dentures.
Process of Getting Dentures Explained
The process of getting dentures typically involves several appointments with your dentist.
During the first appointment, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth to create a model of your gums and teeth. This model will be used to create a wax version of your dentures for you to try on.
During subsequent appointments, your dentist will make adjustments to the wax version of your dentures until the fit is comfortable and natural-looking.
Once you and your dentist are satisfied with the fit and appearance, the final denture will be fabricated.
Aftercare of Dentures
After receiving your dentures, it is important to follow proper care instructions to ensure their longevity and optimal performance. Here are some tips for aftercare of dentures:
- Clean your dentures daily with a denture cleaner or mild soap and water.
- Brush your gums, tongue and palate every day with a soft-bristled brush to prevent bacteria buildup.
- Remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to rest and breathe.
- Rinse your dentures after meals to remove any food particles.
- Avoid using abrasive cleaners or toothpaste that can damage your dentures.
- Store your dentures in a clean and dry place when not in use.
Proper denture cleaning is essential to maintain good oral hygiene and to prevent the buildup of plaque, bacteria, and stains on the denture. Here are some tips for cleaning dentures:
- Remove and rinse the dentures: Remove the dentures from the mouth and rinse them under running water to remove any loose debris.
- Use a denture brush and cleaner: Apply a small amount of denture cleaner or mild soap to a denture brush and use it to gently clean all surfaces of the denture, including the teeth and gums. Avoid using regular toothpaste or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the denture.
- Soak the dentures: Soak the dentures in a denture cleaning solution or a mixture of vinegar and water for a few minutes to help remove any stubborn stains or bacteria. Be sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions when using a denture cleaning solution.
- Rinse thoroughly: Rinse the dentures thoroughly under running water to remove any remaining cleaning solution or debris.
- Brush the mouth and gums: Use a soft-bristled toothbrush or a gauze pad to gently brush the mouth and gums to remove any plaque or debris that may have accumulated.
- Store the dentures properly: After cleaning, store the dentures in a clean, dry container or case. Avoid using hot water or leaving the dentures in direct sunlight, as this can cause them to warp or become damaged.
It’s important to clean dentures at least once a day to maintain good oral hygiene and to prevent oral health problems. If you have any questions or concerns about cleaning your dentures, be sure to consult with a dental professional.

Our team will assess the damage to your dentures and provide you with a range of repair options to suit your needs.
There are several alternatives to dentures that can be considered depending on the specific needs of the patient. Here are some common alternatives:
- Dental Implants: Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically implanted into the jawbone. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, or multiple implants can be placed to support a bridge or denture. Dental implants are considered to be the most natural-looking and comfortable option for tooth replacement.
- Bridges: Dental bridges are fixed prosthetic devices that are used to replace one or more missing teeth. They are typically anchored to adjacent teeth using dental crowns or other types of dental hardware.
- Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are similar to full dentures but are designed to replace only a few missing teeth. They are typically made of a combination of acrylic and metal, and are designed to be held in place using clasps that attach to the remaining natural teeth.
- Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are used to repair and restore damaged teeth. They can also be used to replace missing teeth by attaching them to dental implants or other dental hardware.
- Natural Tooth Regeneration: Researchers are currently exploring new techniques for regenerating natural teeth using stem cells and other advanced technologies. While this is still an experimental approach, it may become a viable option for tooth replacement in the future.
It’s important to discuss all of the available options with your dentist to determine the best solution for your specific needs and circumstances.
