Gone are the days when you can spot a denture from a mile away. Dr. Spencer takes pride in creating beautiful, natural fitting, and natural-looking dentures. He accomplishes this by building his dentures one step at a time. Many patients are surprised to learn that it will take several appointments to make a denture, but Dr. Spencer does this to ensure that his patients are satisfied with the final results.
If you are missing all of your teeth on either your top or bottom arch, full dentures are a great way to replace all those missing teeth at once.
Implant-Supported Full Dentures
Full dentures have been revolutionized by the introduction of dental implants. Dental implants are small titanium posts that we can place in the jaw bone, which can then support a full denture! Perhaps you are nervous about transitioning to a full denture, or maybe you have existing dentures that do not stay in place. Implants may be the best solution for you to give your dentures extra support and keep them from sliding around in your mouth.
Partial dentures are great for patients who wish to replace several missing teeth in different parts of the mouth with one prosthesis. Several healthy, natural teeth remain, and rather than remove those in preparation for a full denture, you can use those teeth to support a partial denture. Replacing several missing teeth with dental implants and dental bridges can be costly. A partial denture is an excellent, economical alternative for replacing missing teeth while still maintaining the natural parts of your smile.
If you currently have dentures, you may have noticed that your denture does not fit as well as it did several years ago. This happens because, over time, the shape of our bone and our gums slowly changes. If you are still satisfied with the appearance of your denture, Dr. Spencer may be able to perform a reline procedure. This is a quick, economical way of getting your denture to fit better than ever.
