Partial dentures are a great solution for patients who aren’t missing a full arch of teeth. The partial dentures are made to fill in the gaps left behind with gum-colored bases that mimic natural gums and realistic-looking replacement teeth attached to them. Partial dentures have metal clasps that attach to existing teeth in order to keep them in place.
For patients missing a full arch of teeth, we offer full dentures to replace all of their teeth using a single apparatus. Like partial dentures, full dentures also have an acrylic base that mimics the appearance of real gums. The gums have false (but natural-looking) replacement teeth attached. Our traditional full dentures fit snugly on the gumline with the help of extra-strength denture adhesives.
For a more secure fit, we can use implants to lock your denture in place. Whether you’re getting your first denture or struggling with an existing piece that slips and slides, we can help! Not only can we model your denture to snap onto dental implants, but we can also place the implants and complete the entire implant process in-house so that you don’t have to go to multiple dentists. With implant-supported dentures, all you have to do is simply snap your denture onto your implants and go about your day. They won’t move around or budge while you’re out doing the things you love.Learn More About Implants SCHEDULE YOUR CONSULTATION
How do you take care of dentures?
Dentures must be removed and brushed at least once a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and denture cleaner, as regular toothpaste and toothbrushes tend to be too abrasive. After you remove them at night, they should be soaked in a denture solution that will keep them moist and kill bacteria. It’s not recommended for patients to sleep with their dentures in, but it can be done on occasion after they’ve been brushed or soaked in solution and rinsed with water. Keeping your dentures nice and clean will help them to look great and last as long as possible.
What are the benefits of custom dentures?
Many patients are worried that their dentures will end up looking very noticeable and fake or that they will fit incorrectly and feel very uncomfortable to wear. Custom dentures solve both of these problems, as they are designed to mimic the appearance of real teeth and made to fit securely in the mouth. We always ensure that our dentures never look totally perfect, as that can lead to them appearing artificial. Instead, we give each set of dentures enough personality to look very esthetically-pleasing, but also natural!
Are dentures affordable?
At Corvallis Dental Group, we understand that both expected and unexpected dental expenses can be stressful on patients, which is why we aim to offer a variety of flexible financing options. If you have dental insurance, we recommend checking with your provider to see if they offer any coverage for denture services. We also accept payment plans through CareCredit®, which can divide the upfront cost of dentures into manageable monthly payments.
