Our denture solutions

Complete Dentures

Complete dentures are used when all natural teeth are missing. These full-arch dentures are custom-crafted to fit comfortably and securely in your mouth. They are available for both the upper and lower jaws, providing comprehensive tooth replacement.

Partial Dentures

If you have some natural teeth remaining, partial dentures are an excellent choice. They fill in the gaps caused by missing teeth, preventing further dental issues and restoring your smile’s aesthetics and function.

Implant-Supported Dentures

For enhanced stability and comfort, consider implant-supported dentures. Dental implants provide a secure foundation for your dentures, ensuring they stay in place and function like natural teeth. This option offers improved chewing efficiency and overall comfort.

Adjusting to your new dentures

Sensitivity to Temperature

Initially, you may notice increased sensitivity to hot and cold foods or drinks. This is a common experience as your mouth adjusts to the dentures. We recommend starting with lukewarm foods and gradually introducing different temperatures as your comfort level increases.

Changes in Eating Habits

Adapting to eating with dentures takes patience and practice. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces and chew slowly using both sides of your mouth. As you become more accustomed to your dentures, you’ll be able to include a wider variety of foods and return to a normal eating routine.

Will my speech be altered?

It’s not uncommon to experience some changes in speech when you first wear dentures. You might notice that certain words are harder to pronounce. However, this is typically temporary.

Speech Improvement Exercises

To help you adjust more quickly, we recommend the following exercises:

  • Reading aloud: Spend some time each day reading out loud to practice forming words and sounds. This can help your tongue and muscles adapt to the dentures.
  • Singing: Singing along to your favorite songs can also be a fun and effective way to improve speech clarity.
  • Repeating challenging words: Practice saying challenging words or phrases multiple times in a row.

Remember, our team is here to support you through this transition. If you have concerns about your speech or any other aspect of adjusting to dentures, don’t hesitate to contact us at (520) 625-0131.

Frequently asked questions about dentures

How long do dentures typically last?

Dentures can last anywhere from 5 to 10 years or more with proper care. Over time, adjustments or replacements may be necessary due to changes in your oral structures.

Will dentures affect my ability to eat and speak?

It may take some time to adjust to dentures, but most patients find that their eating and speaking abilities improve with practice. Our team will guide you during this transition period.

Do dentures feel like real teeth?

Transitioning to dentures can be a significant adjustment, and one of the most common questions we encounter is whether dentures feel like natural teeth. While dentures are designed to mimic the look and function of your natural teeth, it's important to understand that they may feel different at first.

Can I sleep with my dentures in?

While it's generally recommended to remove dentures at night to give your oral tissues a chance to rest, some people may wear them overnight. However, this should be discussed with your dentist.

How do I clean and care for my dentures?

Proper denture care includes daily cleaning, removal at night, and regular check-ups. Our team will provide detailed instructions on maintaining your dentures for longevity.

Can I get dentures if I have gum disease or other dental issues?

In many cases, dentures can be an option for individuals with gum disease or other dental concerns. Our dental professionals will assess your specific situation and recommend the appropriate treatment plan.
