Custom Dentures Give You Back a Beautiful Smile & Strong Bite

Dentures have been around in one form or another for many years. Recent advances in materials and manufacturing make them much more comfortable than they used to be, however. Modern dentures fit better, look better, feel more comfortable, and perform better than ever before.

At Smith & Wetterhus Dentistry, we offer our patients several types of dentures. We’ll help you decide which ones are right for your situation. Your options could include:

  • Conventional Full Dentures – These replacement teeth are what most people think of when dentures are mentioned. They will replace a full arch of teeth on your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. They are held in place with suction and denture adhesive and remove easily for daily cleaning.
  • Conventional Partial Dentures – Like full dentures, you can remove these teeth easily for daily care. However, they are used only when you have some healthy teeth remaining. This type of denture clips onto your healthy teeth to stay in place.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures – These custom dentures are a big step above conventional dentures. They will anchor to a sturdy bar that is in turn anchored to dental implants. This setup means that the forces created by biting and chewing are transferred to your jawbone rather than your gums, making them our most comfortable and stable type of denture. In addition, implants will stimulate your jawbone and keep it from deteriorating over time.
