Missing Teeth Replacement
A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated two different ways.
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
- An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh colored, that covers the palate (roof of the mouth).
- A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue.
The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a combination thereof. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.

The overall experience with Dr. Squier, Sarah and the office staff could not have been more pleasant, comfortable and thorough. I have been to many, many dentists and these folks were the very best , addressing my fears, concerns and overall health with great compassion and care. I was grateful to have found them.

Patient Review by Alli V
My initial appointment with Dr. Squier was a consultation to restore my teeth and mouth structure. Her education and academic credentials speak for themselves, however, after meeting her and talking with her, my "gut" told me I can trust her; that she is the one who will help me restore my mouth. I am looking forward to working with her and very much looking forward to being able to smile again, enjoy eating again and being able to talk to people without being self-conscious and embarrassed.

Patient Review by Carol S
From my first visit I was made to feel very comfortable … Shirley has the best "customer service personality" I have ever encountered in a dental office. I was referred by Dr. Strauss after dental implants because he knew my fear of dentists. I can truly say if I had encountered Dr. Squier that fear would have disappeared. Not only was she professional and caring, she is a true perfectionist. Following my implant surgery I saw her on a weekly basis to insure the comfort and fit of my dentures. Amanda and Sarah (dental assistants) were also amazing … nothing seemed to be too much trouble. Dr. Squier made sure I was truly comfortable with my new dentures - as I said she is a true perfectionist. Now, almost 6 months after the initial visit I can truly say I would (and have) recommend Dr, Squier's office to anyone. I cannot thank them enough for their amazing work. The office is truly the best.

I'm a permanetly.disabled frail senoir citizen disabled from an armed robbery. Since 2005. Unfortunately with no dental insurance dental care is not an option for me. I have been on every online site trying to find some type of donated dental devices that would pull seven lower bottom teeth and a full set of dentures.After the death of my son and extreme dental pain my weight has gone from 165 to 93 lbs . I'm hoping and praying that one of your.offices would consider donating care to me or perhaps refer ing me to a place that can. With the disablities my driving is limited to the treasure coast area. My name is Lisa Bergeron with number 772 672 1393. Thank you for your time.
