We offer both partial and full denture options.
Dentures today aren’t the same as your grandparent’s dentures.
Dentures are an affordable and removable way to replace any number of missing teeth in your mouth. They have a long history of success and continue to earn a place in the list of options for rebuilding your smile.
Full dentures are used when a person is missing all their natural teeth, while partial dentures replace only a few missing teeth here or there to eliminate gaps and improve chewing.
Denture treatment is customized specifically to each patient, and Dr. Caldwell can help you decide which option works best for you.
Conventional or implant-supported.
Full dentures are an economical and efficient way to restore your function and smile.
A complete denture consists of a thin gum-colored acrylic base that rests on your gum tissue. Porcelain or acrylic replacement teeth built into the base give the appearance of natural teeth.
Dr. Caldwell has the experience to help you select the teeth that will look the most natural—giving you the chance to customize a “new” smile or recreate the one you had.
In many cases, dentures can be secured more firmly to your jaw using dental implants. In addition to having greater retention and a more natural look, implant-supported dentures tend to last longer.
Dr. Caldwell can discuss these options and help you understand how they can improve your experience with dentures.
An economical solution to replace missing teeth.
Partial dentures are an economical solution to replace missing teeth, fill in the spaces, improve chewing ability, and restore your confidence to smile.
These appliances will also help keep your natural teeth from shifting, lowering the risk of losing those teeth in the future.
Most partial dentures contain a thin metal framework designed with small metal clasps that wrap around your existing teeth’ gum line—allowing for a smooth, non-bulky feel.
Your natural teeth support the framework to provide a reliable, secure appliance that is easy to use and remove. Where teeth are missing, natural-looking replacement teeth are attached, and gum-colored acrylic is used to cover the metal framework.
Implants can also be used to support removable partial dentures.
We look forward to discussing your options to make your mouth full again and to give you back a confident, glowing smile!
