Tooth loss, whether the result of a knockout or gradual bacterial decay, is a serious problem that can leave you feeling self-conscious and unable to perform everyday tasks to the best of your abilities, such as talking or eating. When teeth are missing, to the point where you can’t function the same way anymore, you need to get a set of dentures. High-quality ones are made to look just like natural teeth, and perform like them too, so you don’t need to worry about standing out or suffering from any drastic appearance and ability changes.
Minnesota is a large state, with a lot of cities and towns to cover. No matter where you live, however, you’re never too far from an emergency dentist ready to help you find your new set of dentures. Contact us today at 1-888-351-1473 to schedule an appointment.

Even minor problems are a cause for concern, as they’re often the symptom of a bigger issue. We believe that everyone is entitled to professional and speedy dental services when they need them, which is why we offer our emergency dental services in the state of Minnesota.
There are different kinds of dentures for different kinds of situations and people. Some offer greater stability and strength, but cost more money and require more time and effort to produce. Others are removable, but function less like natural teeth would. Depending on what you’re looking for and require, your dentist will help you find the dentures that fit your needs and smile perfectly.
These dentures “float” along the gums using an adhesive designed to allow you to remove the dentures as necessary. This means they’re not as stable, and can shift in your mouth while eating or speaking. This is the most well-known style of denture, and though not as advanced, they’re still used for a reason - they work, especially if you’re on a budget or don’t prioritize stability.
Attached to the jaw with a metal support beam, these are more stable and more subtle, bringing the appearance of natural teeth despite not being quite as strong or functional. They’re a good option if you want stability but still want to be able to remove them.
Attached directly to titanium implants with screws or clips, overdentures provide the most stability and strength out of the three options. They look like natural teeth, and are strong enough to chew foods you may otherwise struggle with, like chewy meats.
