Tooth loss can leave gaps in your mouth, cause damage to your self-esteem, and make normal things like talking and eating a struggle. A good set of dentures can fix your smile, boost your confidence, and make your daily life a whole lot easier. Over the years, denture technology has advanced to the point of looking entirely natural and remaining stable in your mouth without the need to remove them. They won’t get lost or damaged easily, and they can make a world of a difference for you, your health, and your smile.

Created using an acrylic base attached to artificial teeth and molded to fit the mouth, these dentures are the most inexpensive option while still offering quality results, along with the ability to remove and clean them at will. However, they have the ability to shift in the mouth, due to not being attached securely.
Similar to traditional dentures, these are made on an acrylic base, however they screw into the jaw with titanium bridges rather than floating on the gums. They’re more secure as a result, and act like natural teeth.
Another implant-based option, these clip or screw into the mouth. With five different fits to choose from, these offer good variety while still acting and looking just like natural teeth, offering the ability to eat crunchier and chewier foods than other dentures can.
A: Yes, the implant dentures and overdentures do need mouth surgery to attach to the jaws. However, most mouth surgery will only take about an hour, and won’t require any more work after the implants are added.
A: You care for your dentures the same way you care for natural teeth, as they can suffer from the same problems if not cleaned, including plaque and bacterial infections. Your dentist will inform you if there are any specifics regarding the cleaning process, but brushing and flossing like regular teeth is a good way to keep them healthy.
A: When healthy, a high-quality set of dentures can last for about eight to ten years before needing a replacement. You may need to make appointments in the meantime to keep your dentures in shape, as wear and tear happens naturally and you may need repairs.
