Full & Partial Dentures

There are many ways to lose teeth such as decay, injury, or gum disease, and dentures are the most basic and helpful solution for replacing a tooth or many teeth.

Reasons for Dentures

There are many reasons to get dentures. While many people think of the more cosmetic reason of having a complete smile, there are other reasons for getting dentures that are necessary and helpful:

  • Less expensive than dental implants
  • Improved speech when compared to not wearing dentures
  • Wearer can eat normally
  • Fills out the face to prevent facial sagging which can give an aged appearance

Dentures are also used for many who are planning to get dental implants in the future.

Candidates for Dental Implants & Dentures

Certain patients are not able to get dental implants due to health issues like diabetes and gum disease. Dentures are a perfect alternative and can work in similar ways to implants by not allowing the surrounding teeth to start spreading.

What we are doing to keep you and your family safe when you come to our office

We hope you and your family are in good health. Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While may things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it is both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We follow the activities of these agencies so that we are up to date on any new rulings or guidance that may be issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to each agencies’ recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff.

For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You will be asked those same questions again when you are in the office.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you are offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at one at a time.

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice.

Thank you for being our patient. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming back our patients, neighbors, and friends.
