Partial Dentures

Replace one or more missing teeth. Partial dentures are held in place by clasps that fit onto nearby healthy teeth. You can take the partial dentures out yourself, for cleaning and at night.

Complete Dentures

If you lose all your natural teeth, removable dentures can restore your natural appearance as well as can improve your ability to chew and speak clearly. Removable dentures often take time to get used to as they may cause soreness. Regular appointments with your denturist to make adjustments to your dentures will help to alleviate pain or discomfort.

Immediate Dentures

Immediate dentures are made before natural teeth are removed and are put in place immediately after natural teeth are extracted.  . Because your mouth needs time to heal, immediate dentures can be more complex and the initial fit and look of the denture can be less precise.  The jawbones will shrink significantly within the first three months of the teeth being extracted and the denture will require a reline once the mouth has completely healed and the bone has stabilized.


If your dentures are loose but there is not too much wear on denture teeth, you may need them relined.  Your denture needs to be regularly adjusted to the changes in your mouth because your gums shrink and change over time.  Your denturist will add new material to the denture so it fits properly again.  To maintain a healthy fit, a denture needs to be relined every two or three years.  

Soft Liners

Even after your denturist carefully fits your dentures, some people may still experience discomfort. Soft liners can be added to new, relined and old dentures to act as a shock absorber when you chew to reduce or eliminate pain. Over time soft liners deteriorate and collect bacteria, so they will need to be adjusted regularly and replaced every 2 – 4 years. Be sure to use an antibacterial denture cleaner with your soft liners.    


Most repairs are due to wear or tear on your denture and may be a symptom of underlying problems.  If you lose a tooth out of your denture or it cracks/breaks, see your denturist immediately for a repair.
