Traditional dentures are designed to fit snugly on the gumline with some help from dental adhesives.

They’re also a cost-effective way to replace multiple teeth and be able to still enjoy the benefits of a beautiful restoration that looks natural!
For those struggling with uncomfortable, ill-fitting dentures, we offer complete implant services in-house. Dental implants are small posts that go directly into the jawbone where the missing tooth’s root once was. Implants act as replacement tooth roots and provide stable foundations for restorations, such as dentures, to snap onto. Dentures usually need four to eight implants to hold them in place. One of the many benefits of implants is that they keep your denture from slipping and sliding throughout the day. All you have to do is snap them into place and you don’t have to think about them for the rest of the day!

What are dentures made out of?
Dentures can be made out of several materials, such as porcelain, acrylic, composite resin, or metal. Traditional dentures are typically made out of composite resin, making them strong yet comfortable and lightweight. This material allows the dentures to stay firmly with adhesives like denture pastes or powders. Implant-supported dentures attach to titanium posts located on the gumline, which helps them feel very sturdy and natural. Thanks to our advanced dental technology, our dentures are natural-looking and custom-designed to fit comfortably and effortlessly for each patient.
Do dentures need to be replaced?
Unfortunately, while the materials dentures are made out of is durable, there comes a time when dentures need to be replaced. According to the American Dental Association, dentures tend to have a lifespan of five to ten years. This lifespan will vary depending on the patient, the materials used, and how well a patient cares for their dentures. More often than not, the artificial teeth from the old dentures can be used on a new base, as the old base may need to be relined, rebased, or replaced as the mouth changes naturally with age. It’s critical to replace ill-fitting dentures to maintain good oral health and hygiene before they cause issues to your gums or existing teeth. If you’re uncertain if your dentures need to be replaced, our team is happy to take a look!
How much do dentures cost?
A complete set of dentures can cost anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to a thousand, whereas a partial set can cost less. However, if you have dental insurance, a portion of your dentures cost will likely be less. Dentures are a great investment for those who want a durable and natural-looking way to restore their smile and facial structure.
