Dentures and Partials
Our dental clinic provides modern dentures—heads above the restorative plates offered during past decades. With our technology, you’ll be able to speak clearly and indulge in a more nutritious diet that includes crunchier veggies and healthier snacks.
A full smile that looks natural also boosts your self-confidence, allowing you to smile and laugh with ease.
Dentures and Partials to Fit Your Lifestyle
Dentures are a full set of prosthetic teeth on a gum-colored restoration plate. They are customized to fit your mouth to prevent slippage. Dentures depend on suction and the natural contours of your jaw to remain in place.
Partial dentures stand in for incomplete tooth loss, and the restoring plate only contains the teeth needed to fill in the gaps in your smile. Typically, partial dentures stay in place through suction, the support of healthy adjacent teeth, and clips.
If you’re looking for a more permanent tooth replacement option, we also offer implant-supported dentures—usually, four to six implants can support a single denture arch.
The Denture Process
Dr. Unger examines your teeth and gums to make sure dentures or partials will fit your smile goals and be an effective solution to your tooth loss.
In our dental office, we like to present all the options for restoring your smile and allow you to decide on the choice that best fits your needs, budget, and smile goals. Your dentist will educate you on the available options and always answer all your questions.
At Dr. John V. Unger, DDS, we want to do more than restore your smile. We want you to play a role in the process by making a thoughtful and informed decision about your tooth replacement.
If you and your dentist decide that dentures or partials are the best option, we may have to start with extractions for dentures—especially if any remaining teeth are not healthy enough to support a partial. Then we take impressions of your mouth, and a trusted lab relies on these results to craft your custom prosthetic.
When your new smile is ready, Dr. Unger makes all needed adjustments after you’ve tried on the denture or partial.
Upgrading Your Current Denture or Partial
If you have a denture or partial that slips—jawbone loss is part of tooth loss—or you find yourself applying adhesives throughout the day, it may be time for a new denture.
Additionally, if you’re unhappy with your current denture's appearance and would like a more modern prosthetic, we can help with that as well.
