Your Denturist is qualified to provide you with the oral examination and private consultation you need to enable you to choose the dentures that best suit your specific needs. There are many types of dentures to choose from. Two of the most common choices are Standard (Full Dentures) and Complex Dentures. Standard Dentures are designed to fit comfortably and function well. Complex Dentures are made to fit you more precisely and require extensive high precision measurements of your TMJ (temporal mandibular joint – jaw joint) and of your oral cavity. These measurements are then transferred to an articulator that duplicates the natural movements of your jaw. The added measurements and the use of an articulator enable the Denturist to fabricate a more precisely fitting denture. Complex Dentures provide a closer fit enhancing your ability to eat, speak and laugh naturally.
Your Denturist will consult with you about the best options available for achieving maximum function, comfort and natural esthetics with your new Dentures. Denturists also fabricate and repair your dentures in their own onsite labs, making them the best choice of Dental Health Care Professional to help you with all of your denture needs.

The cost of dentures will vary depending on your specific needs.

What are Partial Dentures?
A partial denture is a dental appliance typically made of a combination of acrylic and metal, or strictly made from acrylic. This combination of materials offers a more durable option when it comes to chewing. Both options attach to your natural teeth with wire clasps or precision attachments.
When are Partial Dentures Recommended?
If you have lost a tooth due to breakage or decay, a partial denture might be recommended. If you lose an adult tooth, you can shift your other teeth to try to compensate for the void produced by your missing tooth. This shift will affect your bite and your ability to chew. You may also experience soft tissue shrinkage and bone support loss. This can affect your facial appearance. Partial dentures fill the void between your missing tooth or teeth and help to preserve the natural structure of your gums, jawbone, and facial muscles, as well as reduce the risk of your teeth moving. If your missing tooth is located in the front of your mouth, a partial denture will help restore your natural smile and improve your confidence.
Other great benefits to having a partial denture:
- Incredible boost to your self-confidence
- Better support for your lips and cheeks
- Partial dentures can prevent unwanted changes to the bite
- Pressure on your other natural teeth is reduced
What are Complete Dentures?
Complete dentures, also known as full dentures, are removable appliances that fit into your mouth and along your gum to replace all the missing teeth. They are formed to fit your mouth naturally and are fitted with artificial teeth to best represent your natural teeth and smile. The teeth in the dentures are made of various materials such as hard resin, composite, and porcelain. The supporting parts are made of acrylic or flexible polymer material. Dentures are kept in place by natural suction or by an oral adhesive.
What is a Denture Reline?
A reline should be done on all full dentures on average every two years. We will remove some of the pink acrylic from the tissue side of the denture. The denture is then filled with an impression material, which conforms to the new contours of the tissues and sets a rubbery consistency. The denture will then have an accurate impression of the shape of the gums. It will then be taken to the lab, and the impression material is replaced with pink hard acrylic, in exactly the same shape as the new impression. When returned, the denture now conforms to the contours of your mouth and should make maximum contact with the tissues producing maximum suction.
What is a Denture Rebase?
Rebasing a denture is similar to a reline except the denture comes back not only relined but with ALL the pink acrylic above replaced. The only parts of the old denture that remain after a rebase are the teeth.
A rebase is often done when the denture is labeled as unhygienic due to staining or multiple cracks and repairs. These can cause the denture not to fit well. However, the teeth themselves are still in good condition and fit correctly with the teeth in the opposite arch. You will end up with a revitalized old denture.
Do you offer Emergency Repairs?
A cracked, chipped, or broken denture can be very uncomfortable. It can affect your ability to drink, speak, eat, or even smile. For this reason, we offers same-day emergency repairs and adjustments.
If your denture requires a repair, it may be because of underlying problems, including the age of the denture, worn teeth, poor fit, or poor bite. Our in-house dental laboratory and experienced dental technicians will assist you with denture repairs or relines. We’ll work hard to get your denture feeling comfortable again.
