Restore Your Smile & Confidence

Dentures are dental prosthetic devices that are commonly referred to as 'false teeth'. They are used to replace missing teeth and have become an essential part of modern dentistry, playing an important role in improving the quality of life for countless individuals. 

If an accident, gum disease, or aging has left you with only a few healthy teeth, or no healthy teeth at all, your dentist will likely recommend dentures as a treatment option. Dentures can restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. 

With proper care, dentures can last for many years and restore your smile and your confidence.  

Types of Dentures

Whether you need dentures to replace one missing tooth, a row of teeth, a whole jaw, or to help with facial muscles that sag, your dentist can help you decide on the right option for you.

  • Full Dentures

    Also called complete dentures, full dentures are used for people with no (or very few) remaining natural teeth. There are two types of full dentures that can be recommended: conventional and immediate.

  • Implant-Supported Dentures

    Unlike other types of dentures, implant-supported dentures (also called permanent dentures or hybrid dentures) are not removable. These dentures are anchored to dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone.

    They offer great stability, making them a popular choice for those who want a natural feel.

  • Partial Dentures

    If you're missing many, but not all, of your teeth, you might consider partial dentures. They are like full dentures, but they come with extra clasps that attach to the remaining natural teeth for added support.


Benefits of Dentures

Replacing missing teeth is essential to your oral health. If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures can be an affordable option to help restore your smile.

  • Restore Functionality

    If you are missing all or some of your natural teeth, dentures can help you chew food properly and speak clearly, improving your overall quality of life.

  • Aesthetic Enhancement

    Dentures are designed to replicate the appearance of natural teeth and gums, enhancing your facial structure and smile.

  • Prevention of Oral Health Issues

    Missing teeth can lead to various oral health problems, such as shifting of remaining teeth, gum disease, and bone loss. Dentures help prevent these issues by maintaining the structure and alignment of the mouth. 

Maintenance & Care 

Care is essential to ensure the longevity and effectiveness of dentures. With proper care and maintenance, dentures can last for many years before needing to be replaced.

  • Regular Cleaning & Proper Storage

    Your dentures should be cleaned daily to remove food particles and prevent plaque buildup. Use a soft-bristle brush and mild denture cleaner to clean your dentures. Dentures are delicate and can break easily. Handle them over a soft surface or water-filled sink to avoid damage in case they slip from your hands. 

    Also, when not in use, store your dentures in a denture-soaking solution that will prevent them from drying out and warping. 

  • Regular Check-ups

    Visit your dentist regularly for check-ups and adjustments to ensure that your dentures fit well and remain in good condition.

  • Avoid Sticky or Hard Foods

    Be cautious when eating, as it can damage your dentures. Cut food into smaller, manageable pieces to reduce strain on the dentures.
