What are Dentures?

Dentures replace teeth and surrounding tissue. They are custom-fitted and visually matched to existing teeth. Full arch dentures replace all upper or lower teeth, while partial dentures can replace only a few.

Today's dentures are made of hard resin. Though this resin is more durable than materials used in the past, it wears down more quickly than natural teeth, so dentures need periodic replacement.

Types of Dentures Available

Implant Support Denture

Implant Retained Dentures

Using an implant to anchor dentures means they are more stable and secure than traditional dentures. This security also keeps food from becoming trapped under the denture, leading to better oral health

Partial Dentures

A partial denture replaces only a few teeth. In certain cases, it can be an alternative to a bridge or implants. The denture has metal attachments that clasp or snap onto the teeth to provide the denture stability when worn.

Full Mouth Dentures

If most teeth are missing or need an extraction, full-mouth dentures may be your best option.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dentures?

You may be a good candidate for dentures if you have the following:

  • Significant tooth loss
  • Healthy jawbone and gum tissue

Patients whose teeth have been missing for an extended period should consult Dr. Skoulas to determine whether they are good candidates for dentures.

Benefits of Dentures

Restore Chewing Ability

One of the most notable benefits of dentures is that you can chew your food again. Chewing around missing teeth is taxing, and many people have to change their diets to adapt significantly.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are crafted to help patients enjoy day to day activities, even if they’ve lost all of their natural teeth from either decay or accident. Traditional full dentures are easy to wear and have beautiful, individually crafted, natural looking teeth. We make sure our dentures provide our patients with perfect occlusion and a reason to smile again.

Quick and Easy to Clean

Both fixed and removable dentures are easy to clean.

Support Facial Muscles

People missing their teeth have a characteristic "sunken" facial appearance from unsupported cheek muscles. Dentures restore the original contours of the face.

Improve Speech

Clear speech can be challenging when you have missing teeth. Dentures can help you form sounds that are difficult with missing teeth.

Improve Appearance

When you have dentures, you will be able to smile again. You will no longer have to hide your smile behind your hand or avoid smiling in photos.

Increase Self-Esteem

Being self-conscious about your teeth can damage your self-esteem. Knowing your teeth look healthy and attractive will make you feel better about yourself.

Patient Testimonial

I went to see Dr. Skoulas do to a broken bottom denture, which happened 9 days before Thanksgiving. I obviously wanted to be able to eat with my family at our Thanksgiving meal, not to mention, we like to have our teeth in tact. She expedited the process for me and got them done for me on the day before Thanksgiving! And did a beautiful job of it. Thank you Dr. Skoulas!!

Frequently Asked Questions About Dentures

How long each day should I wear my dentures?
Wear them for at least eight hours during the day. This practice will allow your gums and jawbone to become accustomed to the dentures and prevent sore spots from developing.
What should I do if my dentures become loose?
Visit your dentist to have your dentures relined. You will generally need to have them relined every few years. You may have to get new dentures if you gain or lose significant weight.
How long does it take to get dentures?
Getting dentures doesn't happen overnight, but the time spent is an excellent investment in oral health. Typically, it takes a few months to complete the process.
