What Is A Denture?
A traditional denture consists of multiple teeth on a metal frame and a gum colored plastic base to replace some or all of the teeth on the upper or lower jaw.
Dentures are normally secured with clips or denture paste and can be removed by the patient.

The Denture Process
Request a FREE Consultation!
Includes FREE Consultation + FREE Dental Exam + FREE 3D Imaging
Start With A Free Consultation
At your consultation, you'll receive free X-rays, a dental exam, and discuss your treatment details with one of our Doctors. We'll then take impressions of both the upper and lower gums.
Take Bite Impressions
The second visit is where you will take bite impressions to decide the length of the new teeth to create a perfect bite.
The third visit allows us to see what the dentures will look like, adjust them for size and get the laboratory to make any final adjustments.
Visit number four ends with you leaving with a completely installed brand new pair of dentures so that you can begin to eat and speak like you used to while improving your appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much do dentures cost?
Complete dentures can cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars. Partial dentures will typically cost less than a complete set. Price will vary based on the types of materials chosen and the complications of the case. Give us a call or schedule online for a free consultation and price quote.
Can I eat normally with dentures?
Most patients will need to learn how to use dentures properly, and as a result, it will take a little time to get used to them. After a while, you should be able to eat fairly normally but it may take more time to get comfortable eating hard or sticky foods. Using a small amount of denture adhesive may help stabilize the denture and keep them in place. For patients looking for a permanent solution to stabilizing their dentures, we recommend implant supported dentures. Schedule a free consultation to see if you may be a candidate.
Is it possible to get dentures after not having teeth for a long time?
It's hard to predict how much of the upper or lower jaw will remain if you've gone without teeth for a number of years. The best way to find out is to schedule a free consultation that includes a free CT scan of your upper and lower jaw. The CT scan produces a 3D image of your jaw that will tell us which treatments you would be a good candidate.
Can I sleep in my dentures?
Yes, you can wear your dentures at night but it is preferred that they be removed. You should remove your dentrues at night as this will give your gums and bone a chance to relax from the pressure of the denture during the day. If you need to wear your dentures for social reasons or to prevent your jaws from over closing, you should find time during the day to properly clean your mouth and denture. You should never wear your dentures 24 hours a day without performing proper oral hygiene. Dentures should be cleaned at night and stored in water over night.
How do I care for my dentures?
Brushing: Do not brush your dentures with normal toothpaste. Toothpastes are designed to be used on natural teeth. They often contain ingredients that help whiten and strengthen natural teeth but may harm dentures. You should use a dish washing liquid and a special denture brush to clean your dentures by hand every day. After rinsing, soak your dentures in a water based cleaning solution overnight.
How long is the recovery period?
Recovery time differs for every patient but many patients say they don't experience significant discomfort and don't even need pain medication after the procedure.
What are permanent dentures?
Permanent dentures are retained by screws onto dental implants and cannot be removed by a patient; they can only be removed by your dentist. Permanent dentures can dramatically improve the fit and stability of a denture and greatly improve a patient's biting power. Another benfit of dental implants is their ability to slow or hault the progression of bone loss in the jaw that typically occurs when natural teeth and teeth roots are no longer present.
Do you offer financing?
Yes. We offer many financing options to make quality dental care a reality for hundreds of patients every year.
