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 Maria M

I needed dentures !!! My first try was a "denture mill"- affordable- cheap thats what I got. After 2 month of "torture" they send me to a oral surgeon Dr. Kaltman who, in return referred me to Dr Squire. WHAT A DIFFERENCE. what really impressed me was no waiting at the time of my appointment.. The staff is absolute delightful, greeting you with a smile. Dr. Squire is terrific and very professional in explaining the possibilities and procedures and excellent in her work. I am extremely pleased with the results and recommend her to everybody.
