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 Cindi V
Went through two different dentists to have complete upper/lower dentures made. For two years I kept telling dentist(s) that my bite was off and my lower jaw was jutting forward in an unnatural position which was causing jaw fatigue; I was told to wear them/just had to get use to them. The teeth just did not seem to fit in size nor to the shape of my mouth. Paste nor powder adhesive helped. I didn't wear them 90% of the time as they kept my mouth tore all to pieces and it was just easier to go without them unless I was going to town or had company. I knew there had to be a solution so I searched the internet and found Dr. Squire .. oh how I wish I had found her two years ago! She took the time to LISTEN to my concerns and address my problems. The day Dr. Squire brought me my finished dentures I almost cried as they were beautiful! They looked like my real teeth and were proportionately sized to my face. I've been wearing them daily for a little over a month and am SO PLEASED with them. For the first time since having dentures (two years) I am able to eat what I want, wear my dentures all day, no adhesive, and only remove them to sleep. I give Dr. Squire two thumbs up for her attention to detail and work .. she is awesome and has given me back my smile!
