Restore Beauty and Function to Your Smile
If you want an attractive, affordable replacement for missing teeth, dentures could be the right choice for you. Whether you’re missing a single tooth or a full arch, Dr. Young can customize a full or partial denture to restore your smile.
Full vs. Partial Dentures
If you choose to get removable dentures, we feature two different options for your convenience. No matter how many teeth you’re missing, Dr. Young will ensure your restoration looks natural and fits comfortably.
If you’re only missing one tooth, or a few teeth, we’ll fill the gaps in your smile with a partial denture. Customized to your unique bite, partial dentures offer a fast and minimally invasive solution for missing teeth.
For patients missing a whole arch of teeth, Dr. Young can restore functionality to your smile with a full denture. In addition to improving your smile, a full denture will allow you to eat and speak with confidence once again.
If you want an attractive, affordable, and minimally invasive replacement for missing teeth, then you’re likely a candidate for dentures. Designed to blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth, dentures can help you achieve your dream smile.
Unlike dental implants, dentures don’t require a strong jawbone for support, allowing more patients to immediately qualify. If you’ve lived with missing teeth for a long time and suffered from jawbone deterioration, dentures are likely the most convenient option for you.
Maintaining and Repairing Dentures
It’s crucial that you handle your dentures with caution — they can easily break if you drop them or don’t take good care of them. When you’re not wearing them, keep them moist by storing them in water or an ADA-approved soaking solution. Don’t use hot water, as this will warp your dentures.
Brush your dentures every day to remove food crumbs, plaque, and other debris. Use a soft-bristled brush and mild, colorless soap to avoid damaging your dentures. To prevent stains, it also helps to brush your gums and tongue before applying your dentures.
In the event that you damage your dentures, don’t attempt to fix them yourself. Contact our practice immediately if you experience any issues.
