A denture is a dental appliance that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. Unlike dental bridges, dentures can be removed at any time, allowing for more comfortable oral hygiene. To make dentures, our friendly dentist, Dr. Quillian, will take impressions of your mouth. Next, they will create models that you will be asked to try to ensure that the fit is as comfortable as possible. Based off of this model, our dental team will determine the ideal color, shape, and fit of your denture. Finally, your final denture will be cast and any necessary adjustments will be made. At Culebra North Dental Care, we are pleased to offer both complete and partial dentures.
What are complete dentures?
If you are missing all of your natural teeth in either or both jaws, our team may recommend complete dentures.
What are partial dentures?
Partial dentures are especially useful when a patient still has one or more of their natural teeth remaining.
How can dentures help me?
Aside from filling the gaps in your teeth, dentures can improve your ability to speak and eat properly. They can also prevent your teeth from shifting.
