Dentures and Partial Dentures in Durham, NC

If you are missing a full arch of teeth, this is likely affecting your ability to smile normally as well as eating. drinking, and speaking. These major lifestyle adjustments can be avoided by seeing your dentist for a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan. Our dentures and partial dentures are designed personalized to you and your soft tissues, ensuring a comfortable fit and secure wear.

Dentures are removable prosthetics used to replace a full arch of teeth. However, if you still have a few remaining teeth, partial dentures can be used. Partial dentures rest on surrounding teeth to fill in the gaps left behind from missing teeth. Both dentures and partials are removable by the wearer.

When you wear your dentures or partials, keep in mind that they will require special care. To get the most out of your oral appliance, we recommend the following:

  • Soak them in a denture solution when not in use to keep them moist at all times.
  • Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to gently brush your dentures daily.
  • Avoid exposing your dentures or partials to hot temperatures that could cause warping.
  • Be careful not to drop your dentures or partials, as they may break.

Am I a candidate for dentures?

The best way to find out if you are a candidate for dentures or partials is to schedule a consultation with our team of restorative dentistry professionals. Any underlying dental concerns will need to be addressed before dentures and partials are offered to a patient. If you have any remaining severely decayed or damaged teeth, they will need to be extracted before your dentures are created.
