Choosing a tooth replacement option can be stressful, and it’s our job to help guide you to an informed and confident decision. Here is what you need to know about dentures and whether or not this prosthetic dental piece is the best fit for you!
What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a full or partial set of prosthetic teeth that can be placed on the upper and lower jaw. And dentures are removable, so they can beDentures taken in and out for daily maintenance. To get the denture to match the exact mold of your mouth, most dentists use acrylic resin (a plastic-like material).
What Are the Benefits?
·      A partial denture keeps the remaining natural teeth from repositioning in the mouth.
·      Full set of teeth improves your ability to speak, eat and smile.
Are You Missing All of Your Teeth?
In the case of one to a few missing teeth, a bridge or dental implant are great solutions for a tooth replacement. However, there comes a time when you might need more than one tooth replaced—you might need to replace all of them. For that reason, dentures are perfect for your case.

Modern technology and dental materials have improved the look and functionality of dentures. At the first consultation we will discuss your particular needs, such as:
