Dentures/Partials

DenturesA denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available - complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.

Most dental insurance provider cover some or all of the cost of dentures.

Dentures and partials can take several appointments to complete.  The general steps are:
  • Take a series of impressions of your jaw.
  • Create models in the exact shape and position of the denture to be made. You will "try in" this model several times.  The dentist will assess the models for color, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast.
  • The dentist will make adjustments as necessary. This can take several appointments as sore spots can develop of time.
