Custom-fit Dental Denture Solutions
When you've lost your natural teeth, dentures give you back the ability to chew, digest and speak more easily. They also support sagging facial muscles and tissue, rejuvenating your whole face as well as your mouth.
Wearing dentures doesn't mean you have to sacrifice a beautiful and natural looking smile.

Types of Dentures
There are two main types of dentures:
How Long Does it Take to Make Dentures?
Conventional dentures are made after all teeth have been extracted and can typically be placed in the mouth 8 to 12 weeks later, after the gums have healed. They require several appointments to design and fit.
Immediate dentures are created before teeth are extracted and can be worn immediately, so you are never without teeth. However, due to gum and bone shrinkage, immediate dentures need more adjustment and possibly replacement, making them a temporary solution for many people.

If you already have conventional, removable dentures and experience difficulty wearing them because of poor stability and decreased chewing function, we may recommend dental implants. If you add just two implants to secure your dentures, studies have shown that you can double your chewing power and reduce your chewing time by half. Using four or more implants we can eliminate the need for dentures altogether.
