Partial and Complete Dentures
Dentures provide a solution for missing teeth and have been around for centuries. The comfort and appearance of modern dentures have improved considerably over the years and now give patients a reliable and affordable way to replace multiple missing teeth at once without compromising the appearance of their smiles.
Flexible Partial Dentures
When you still have some of your natural teeth remaining, a partial denture completes your smile by filling in the gaps between your teeth. At Gallup Dental Group, we offer flexible partial dentures without unsightly metal clasps that reveal your dentistry. Our patients often tell us how much they appreciate this comfortable and convenient solution.
We will match your denture teeth to your natural teeth, so that your partial complements your smile.
Complete (Full) Dentures
If you are facing complete dental extractions, or you’re missing all of your teeth on your upper or lower arch, a complete denture offers a solution so that you can eat the foods you love and smile confidently again.
Complete dentures consist of a pink resin base and artificial denture teeth. Full dentures rely on suction from your upper palate and your lower bony ridge to stay in place. At Gallup Dental Group, our dentists strive to create dentures that fit well and function properly. They also look great! We choose your denture teeth carefully, so they look like you were born with them.
If you suffer from bone loss, creating dentures that stay put when you chew and laugh can pose a serious challenge. Fortunately, Dr. Rowberry and Dr. Vergien offer a solution.
Implant-retained dentures rely upon 2-6 dental implants that anchor your denture into place. Your dentures will not shift or move until you remove them for cleaning or maintenance. Dental implants also provide the added benefit of retaining natural bone structure.
We work closely with skilled and experienced oral surgeons to place your dental implants precisely, giving you the best results.
Caring for Dentures
Dentures have BPA-free plastic parts that are susceptible to heat and can become warped when left in a hot car or exposed to hot water. Never boil your denture to clean it. Use only lukewarm water and a denture-specific cleanser. Abrasive cleaners can scratch the surface of your denture and collect bacteria. Bacteria can cause an unpleasant odor and result in gum disease.
Bring your denture to your regular dental visits so we can ensure it still fits well and is free from damage.
