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.

Patient Review by Cindy A
Dr. Squier is an very experienced prostidontist. She and her staff are very professional, friendly and caring. She was able to come up with a plan for replacing my upper teeth and provide a denture that is comfortable, fits well and looks great. Dr. Squier educates her patients about all options that are available, to come up with a plan that is right for the patient.

Patient Review by Shawn G
I am absolutely amazed at the friendliness of the staff. I was in a time crunch after a traumatic accident that involved a shattered jaw and teeth knocked out. Having been wired shut for 21 weeks, I now have a light at the temporary end of the tunnel to get teeth back in my mouth. I am so grateful for the professionalism of Dr. Squier and staff, they are truly amazing.

Patient Review by Valerie G
Dr. Squire and staff are kind, patient and are very compassionate. The process of having to get a lower denture was dramatic even though I new I had to get a lower denture for years because I have lost so much bone over the years. Dr. Squire was very patient with me and very compationate. The staff were simply amazing. I would highly recommend Treasure Coast Dental. Don't waste your time for searching for a prosthedentist office when you can experience the most professional team on the treasure coast . I love the whole team.

Patient Review by Ed I
I have had serious dental problems for many years. As a result, I have consulted and worked with many highly regarded dentists and prosthodontists. Recently, I completed a major dental restoration with Dr. Squier. This process was conducted in a highly personal and professional manner and the outcome is phenomenal both aesthetically and functionally. I can now eat things I have not been able to eat for years. Dr. Squier's work is outstanding!
