Dentures are removable restorative dental appliances for replacing missing teeth on the jaws. They consist of a denture base made of acrylic resin and prosthetic teeth that sit on top of this acrylic base. Dentures are ideal for anyone who has lost any or all of their teeth. They restore not only your smile but also the functionality of your teeth.

Dentures can improve speech and pronunciation?
The dentist will first examine your teeth, take X-rays, and conduct a series of tests to determine your candidacy for dentures. They will also discuss your cosmetic goals and what to expect with these appliances.
The second step involves taking impressions of your oral cavity to fabricate your dentures. Dentists may either use a putty-like material to create a mold of your oral cavity or a digital scanner to create 3D renders of the same. The models or renders are sent to a lab to manufacture your dentures. In the meantime, the dentist might give your temporary dentures to wear.
After six weeks to three months, the dentist will schedule an appointment for you to try on your dentures. They will carefully insert the dentures in your mouth and check their fit and comfort. They’ll also make any necessary adjustments if needed.
The dentist will finally place the adjusted dentures in your mouth and check how they fit. If they’re a perfect fit, they will give you instructions on how to care for your new appliances, including how to clean and when to wear them. They might also schedule follow-up appointments to check how you’re faring with your new dentures.
Partial dentures are dentures for people with one or a few missing teeth on either jaw. These dentures consist of one or a set of false teeth attached to a metal or plastic base. These dentures are removable and very easy to maintain.
We also offer complete dentures for replacing an entire set of missing teeth on either jaw or both of them. They also consist of a base with prosthetic teeth attached to them. The dentures sit on top of the gum line, and patients can remove them at their convenience to clean them or while sleeping at night.
Dentures, as we know them today, have a fascinating history that dates back centuries?
Patients can get dentures with absolutely no teeth on either jaw. Moreover, patients with one, two, or several teeth can also get dentures to replace all their missing teeth.
Dentures can be supported by dental implants for enhanced stability?
