A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. Dentures are made to closely resemble your natural teeth in appearance and function. Complete dentures are used when all teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents the other teeth from shifting.
The process of getting dentures requires several appointments, usually over several weeks. Highly accurate impressions (molds) and measurements are taken and used to create your custom denture. Several “try-in” appointments may be necessary to ensure proper shape, color, and fit. At the final appointment, we will precisely adjust and place the completed denture, ensuring a natural and comfortable fit.
