Dentures Q & A

Are there different types of dentures?

The skilled dentists at First Smile Dental offer a range of complete treatment options for women and men of all ages. From the preliminary consultation to completed dentures, or a later denture relining or repair, you can trust this expert team to deliver nothing but the best. Denture options at First Smile Dental include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

All dentures are constructed at an on-site dental lab at First Smile Dental. This is a great advantage, as you can see your dentures throughout the process. Along the way, you can modify the fit and make changes to ensure your final smile is one you adore.

Should I get immediate dentures?

Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. Immediate dentures offer you the benefit and convenience of never having to be without teeth. One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Should I get partial dentures?

The most common type of partial dentures has a metal framework. They only replace missing teeth, rather than all of your natural teeth, like full dentures. Metal-based dentures are standard, especially for patients missing rear teeth. The sturdy framework makes it possible for you to chew, bite, and eat a variety of foods. 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.

What if I need denture repairs?

The team at First Smile Dental can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. They repair your custom dentures or an existing set of dentures on-site.
