Our experienced dentists may recommend dentures if you need to replace many or all of your teeth. Dentures are a custom-made oral appliance, and may be used to replace teeth on both the upper and lower dental arches. There are two main types of dentures: complete and partial.
Complete dentures replace a full dental arch to restore your smile, while partial dentures are recommended when you still have a few natural teeth remaining. Dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth so that they fit securely and restore your ability to speak and eat normally. Partial dentures may also include clasps or a framework to attach to your natural teeth and provide additional stability.
Because your dentures are custom-made, you will need to schedule several appointments at Great White Dental in order to ensure that your appliance fits and functions properly. After your dentures are completed, we will provide you with denture care instructions so that you can keep your appliance in good condition. Our dentists will also examine your denture at each of your regular appointments to ensure that it is in good repair and will continue to function properly for you. Please be aware that maintenance and repairs may occasionally be necessary to keep your dentures in good condition.
