Dentures are a prosthetic replacement for missing teeth that are removable. While dentures can take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one's natural teeth, dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. We will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
How do Dentures Work?
With full dentures, a gum tissue colored acrylic base fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of your mouth), while that of the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.
Dentures are custom-made by our local dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth.
