Custom dentures can help you regain your smile, your ability to eat your favorite foods, and your confidence.
New Confidence With Comfortable, Affordable Custom Denture
When you have missing teeth, your facial appearance can change, your other teeth can shift, your gums can be damaged and you aren’t able to properly chew your food. With new dentures, your smile will be restored, you’ll be able to eat more comfortably, and your appearance will be improved. Dentures also support your lips and cheeks, helping you speak more clearly.
Removable full dentures are used to replace all or most of your teeth, while partial dentures are used to replace one or more teeth. Dental implants can also be used to secure dentures for improved functionality.
Thanks to advances in materials and technology, today’s dentures are far more comfortable and durable than dentures made in years past. Before you get dentures, your dentist will give you a thorough initial exam and provide you with all the information you need. They will go over the best treatment options, explain to you about different denture types, and answer your questions.
Talented experts will custom make your dentures based on impressions and models we take of your mouth. Your dentist will pay close attention to all the details of your smile, matching your natural teeth, and making sure your smile looks natural and that your bite is exactly right. Your new dentures will look and feel great and fit precisely. Made of highly durable material, your dentures will last for years to come. For more information about dentures, click here.
Dentures are not your only option for replacing missing teeth. You may find that dental implants, a partial denture, or a dental bridge is a better choice for you.
So that it’s easy to afford your new dentures, we offer a number of payment options. We also work with nearly all dental insurance plans and offer a dental discount program for patients without insurance.
Dental Emergencies FAQ
How to improve your oral health
Many people ring in a new year by making health-related resolutions to improve their lives, but how many of those lifestyle changes are kept past January? The Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), a professional association of more than 35,000 general dentists dedicated to staying up to date in the profession through continuing education, has compiled some easy-to-keep oral health tips that consumers can work into their everyday routines and continue to perform throughout the year.
“Oral health means more than just an attractive smile,” says AGD spokesperson Raymond Martin, DDS, MAGD. “Poor oral health and untreated oral diseases and conditions can have a significant impact on quality of life. And, in many cases, the condition of the mouth mirrors the condition of the body as a whole.”
- Floss every day. It’s the single most important factor in preventing gum disease, which affects more than 50 percent of adults. Spend two to three minutes flossing at least once a day. Not flossing because it irritates your gums? The more often you floss, the tougher your gums will become.
- Brush your teeth for at least two to three minutes twice daily. If you’re not sure whether you’re brushing long enough, simply brush for the length of an entire song on the radio.
- Change your toothbrush or toothbrush head (if you’re using an electric toothbrush) before the bristles become splayed and frayed, or every three to four months. Not only are old toothbrushes ineffective, they may harbor harmful bacteria that can cause infections, such as gingivitis and gum disease.
- Drink sugary beverages through a straw. This will minimize the amount of time that the sugars are in contact with your teeth, which can minimize the risk of developing cavities.
- Replace carbonated beverages, which cause enamel erosion and cavities, with water, milk, tea, or coffee.
- Chew sugarless gum that contains xylitol after meals and snacks. This will help cleanse your mouth and prevent the bacteria associated with cavities from attaching to your teeth. Even better, gum will increase your saliva production and reduce bad breath!
- Wait one hour to brush your teeth after consuming highly acidic food or drinks, like wine, coffee, citrus fruits, and soft drinks. Otherwise, you run the risk of wearing away the enamel on your teeth.
“One last reminder to patients is that they should make an appointment to see their general dentist every six months,” adds Dr. Martin. “More than 90 percent of all systemic diseases have oral manifestations, meaning that your dentist could be the first health care provider to diagnose a health problem.”
What to do when a tooth gets knocked out
If your tooth is knocked out, immediately call a dentist for an emergency appointment. It is important to see your dentist within an hour of when your tooth is knocked out for the best chance of the tooth surviving the trauma. Handle the tooth by the crown (the top), not by the root (the pointed part on the bottom).
Touching the root of the tooth can damage cells that are necessary to reattach the tooth to the bone. Gently rinse the tooth in water to remove dirt. Do not scrub the tooth! Place the clean tooth in your mouth between the cheek and gum to keep it moist. It is important not to let the tooth dry out. If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth, wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse it in milk or saline solution (the solution used for contacts). If a baby tooth is knocked out, the tooth should not be replanted. The patient should be seen as soon as possible to make sure there are no remaining pieces of the tooth.
Are there any alternatives to dentures?
Dental implants are a possible alternative to dentures. Implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Implants and bridges may resemble the “feel” of real teeth, but they may be more expensive than dentures. Not all patients are good candidates for implants, so be sure to talk to your dentist about which treatment option is best for you.
