Dentures Q & A

Are there different types of dentures?

Gentle Dental Associates' cosmetic dentists offer a range of complete treatment options for women and men of all ages. From the first consultation to finished dentures, or denture adjustments and denture relining, this skilled team utilizes the highest quality materials to deliver the best overall experience. Denture options include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures (Hybrid Dentures)

Gentle Dental Associates offer biomechanically stable TeethXpress® dentures by BioHorizons®. They customize each denture using their preferred labs and years of experience. This is a great advantage, as you can see your dentures throughout the process and have input with any changes you may desire so that the doctor can make adjustments along the way to ensure the ideal fit and most aesthetically pleasing finished product.

What are immediate dentures?

If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period. Keep in mind, however, that your mouth will need time to heal from the loss of your natural teeth and the immediate denture placement. Your dentures will need to be relined to ensure your denture fit stays precise and comfortable.

TeethXpress immediate dentures are uniquely designed for restorative flexibility, comfort, and ease of use.

Should I get partial dentures?

The most common type of partial dentures has a metal framework. If you are a good candidate, the rigid metal frame provides sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you're missing molars. No dental adhesives are usually required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Partial dentures can be a very cost effective way to replace numerous teeth. They tend to be less expensive than multiple implants or bridges, but they also need to be replaced more often. They are often used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or an implant restoration.

Gentle Dental Associates also offers the option of a flexible denture, which is a more esthetic option since it has tooth colored clasps, instead of metal, and is more comfortable.

What if I need denture repairs?

Gentle Dental Associates offer many types of denture repairs that can often be completed in the same day. Denture repairs are completed by their local lab.
