If you have lost most or all your teeth, dentures can help return your life to normal. They allow you to eat and speak normally again while improving your facial structure. At My Smile Dentistry, Dr. Kelly and the entire team want to see you smile again!
Complete dentures are meant for patients who have lost or extracted all their teeth. They can come in the form of immediate or conventional.
Immediate dentures are created before your final extraction, and we will place them during that same appointment. These are typically meant to be a temporary solution before your gums are healed and ready for conventional dentures.
If you still have some healthy teeth remaining, you can use partial dentures to fill in the gaps. These dentures have a base that blends in with the natural color of your gums, with artificial teeth that match the color of your real ones.
Does the thought of your dentures moving around irritate you? Implant-supported dentures use dental implants to lock the dentures into place, preventing them from moving around throughout your day. There are fixed and removable options available.
Dentures aren’t just for looks. They also help you live a more comfortable day-to-day life. Some of the advantages you’ll notice include:

With advances in dental materials and technology, today’s dentures are more comfortable and realistic-looking than ever before.
Whether you wear partial or complete dentures, it’s essential to see the dentist for routine care. Besides checking the fit and condition of your dentures and making any necessary adjustments, you’ll also receive a comprehensive exam to check on the health of any remaining teeth as well the soft and hard tissues in and around the oral cavity.
A same-day denture offers an accelerated design and fabrication process that allows a patient to go from impression taking to denture insertion in a single day.
For patients who don’t want to wait after having teeth extracted, an immediate denture can be inserted the same day your teeth are removed. Sometime later you may need the denture reline to address any changes in its fit once the extraction sites have completely healed.
While no one wants to drop or break a partial or complete denture, accidents do happen. The good news is that in some cases, your partial or complete denture is reparable. It all depends on the extent of the damage. Don’t hesitate to contact our office if you’ve broken or damaged your denture. We’re happy to help.
The simple act of taking your partial denture in and out can cause certain types of metal clasps to loosen over time. When you come in for your checkup visit or contact our office for an adjustment, we’ll assess the fit of your partial and tighten the clasps for improved stability and comfort.
While rebuilding a complete smile is a worthwhile investment, our office is sensitive to the costs involved in dental care. We customized care and will discuss which treatment options address your needs, lifestyle, and budget. How much a new denture will cost depends on the type of the prosthesis, its design, and the materials used to fabricate the supportive base, teeth, and clasps or precision attachments. Dentures that include the placement of dental implants for added retention and stability typically involve additional costs.
If you have dental insurance, your coverage may include a new or replacement set of dentures. Our staff is happy to review your coverage with you to ensure you are maximizing your insurance benefits while minimizing any out of pocket expenses.
