Are immediate dentures right for me?
If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures offer you the benefit and convenience of never having to be without teeth.
Be aware though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.
Should I get partial dentures?
Partial dentures with a metal framework are the most common type of partials. Unlike full dentures, partials are meant to replace a few missing teeth, not all of your natural teeth. Dr. Creese will measure your mouth and build a model so they can construct your dentures as quickly and as efficiently as possible.
Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.
Acrylic partial dentures are a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while the dentist constructs permanent partials or bridges.
Where do I go for denture repairs?
Richard D. Creese, DDS, offers a wide range of denture repairs in just a couple hours, or even while you wait. Denture repairs take place on-site.
