Full & Partial Dentures
When you mention dentures, most people immediately envision rows of artificial teeth that look too perfect to be real. It’s true that, until recently, dentists were limited in their ability to customize dentures because of the materials and techniques of the day.
But you will be relieved to know that the days of fake-looking, ill-fitting dentures are long gone! At Wellington Dental, we use updated materials and technology to create esthetic dentures that look so natural no one will know they aren't your own teeth!
It’s important to replace missing teeth, not just to improve your smile, but also to maintain your overall health and well-being. Our state-of-the-art dentures replace lost teeth so you can eat, chew, and speak comfortably again.
Dr. Maryann Jacko and Dr. Jonathan Siefker have the skill and expertise necessary to offer you traditional dentures as well as the security of implant-supported dentures. These options allow us to customize your dentures to meet your unique needs and desires.
Types of Dentures We Offer
Traditional full or partial dentures are artificial teeth placed in a gum-colored base and worn over the gums to replace lost teeth.
Realistic looking artificial teeth are created by highly skilled technicians using our exact specifications. The base of your denture is designed to conform to the shape of your jaw and form a comfortable seal with your gums. Technicians then place artificial teeth individually in the base to mimic the shape and positioning of natural teeth.
Traditional dentures are removable, but our doctors will work closely with the dental lab to completely customize the fit and minimize the potential for shifting and slipping.
A typical complaint about dentures is their tendency to move out of position, causing embarrassing moments when you’re socializing with friends and family.
However, implant-supported dentures are secured to the mouth using dental implants that are surgically placed in the gum. Implants are placed at certain points along your jaw, and your dentures are designed to line up with the implants and snap into place. Combining dentures with dental implants results in the most comfortable and secure fit possible.
Both traditional and implant-supported dentures are good choices, but it is essential to take good care of your dentures to prolong their life and make sure your gums and remaining natural teeth stay healthy. Clean your removable denture regularly as instructed, and if you have implant-supported dentures, you should brush and floss them to ensure that your gums and remaining teeth stay healthy.
Dentures Customized to Fit Your Smile
You are going to live with your dentures for a long time, so spending time learning about your goals at the beginning of the process will result in an outcome that exceeds your expectations.
Your new dentures must be comfortable to wear, so we customize them to conform closely to the contours of your jaw and gums. The appearance of your dentures is every bit as important as fit, so we invite you to sit back in our massage chair and enjoy our calming amenities while we work together to create dentures that actually look more like natural teeth than you ever thought possible.
