Should I get immediate dentures?

If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to decay, illness, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. Keep in mind, however, that your mouth will need time to heal from the loss of your natural teeth and the immediate denture inserts. Your dentures will need to be relined to ensure your denture fit stays precise and comfortable.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. The most common type of partials has a cast metal frame. Partials dentures are different than full. Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth while partial dentures only replace your missing teeth. the denturist or dentist measures your jaw and makes models of your mouth. These models allow them to build your dentures. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while the dentist constructs permanent partials or bridges.

What if I need denture repairs?

At Healthy Smiles Dental Care, our licensed denturists can repair custom dentures in a matter of hours, sometimes while you wait, depending on the type of repair needed. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on-site.
