At our practice, there are patients that do come in that, for whatever reason, need to completely restore their smile. One of those ways of doing that is to offer a denture, and those can always be a challenging situation for those patients. One way to help try and alleviate that is with dental implants and to try and fixate that into their mouths to where it's a little bit more comfortable and not moving around as much, and that allows the patient to be more comfortable and also more confident with their teeth and their smile.
Sometimes when dealing with denture patients, it can be a highly anxious experience for them. To go from having no smile and very little self-esteem and confidence in being able to smile to the end result when they actually get their final product and they're happy with it, they're comfortable with it, they're able to eat again and speak again confidently. It really ... that's one of the joys of being a dentist, is to see that from the beginning to the end and that emotional impact that it has on the patient.
- Access to foods you’ve been missing
- A younger, happier appearance that looks natural
- Increased self-confidence and self-esteem

I come here because first of all they recognize you when you walk through the door. They know you, they know your background. It's a warm welcoming place. Everybody here from every staff member from the front desk all the way back to the Doctor's office and then when you leave everything is well organized. If they say your appointment is 10:32, it's 10:32 and that's when you get in to see the Doctor. I came to him with dental issues from the past that probably just didn't have the right care and attention to my teeth over years and he's taken the time to explain to me what needs to be done and very carefully he's done that with me and I have a lot of confidence in him as an individual because he talks to me like an individual and like a patient but he makes sure I understand fully what's to be done, how it's to be done, and the timeframe of which it's going to be done.
I have a partial plate on the bottom he's had to rebuild that and then a problem where I had to have a tooth extracted so it was not an anchor tooth there any longer. So rebuilt it, got a new one and it has worked very well ever since. It allows me to chew to grind things, without that I could cut things with my front teeth but I would not be able to grind it so as a result I can grind the food properly. Grind it up before I swallow it. I'm very happy with the results and it fits very well and I don't have a problem with it and when I've had a little adjustment necessary I call in, I come right in and they make the adjustment then it fits properly.
- Full removable dentures are probably what you’re most familiar with. These replacement teeth sit in a gum-colored mold that adheres to your gums. They can be used to replace an entire arch or even an entire mouth of teeth.
- Partial removable dentures replace some of your teeth, but not an entire arch. They are also held in place using clasps that attach to the surrounding natural teeth. We also offer implant-supported bridges, a similar option secured by dental implants.
- Implant-retained dentures are completely secure. They attach your denture to dental implants using ball mechanisms. You will never have to worry about your teeth slipping or moving around unexpectedly.
- Implant-supported dentures work very similarly to implant-retained dentures, except they use a bar attachment and implants to secure the denture into your mouth.
- Temporary dentures are just how they sound – temporary. We create these quickly so that you can have new teeth immediately. You’ll wear these while we create your long-term set.
