When it comes to replacing missing teeth, dentures are a tried-and-true restoration option as old as the 7th century BC. With the latest advances in dental technology and techniques, these removable oral appliances are more effective, comfortable and natural looking than ever before, restoring the beauty, function and health of your smile.

Depending on each patient’s individual needs and whether they are missing only a few or all of their teeth, our dentist may recommend either a complete or partial denture. While a partial denture can be used to replace multiple missing teeth when the patient still has natural teeth remaining, a complete denture is used to replace a full dental arch of missing teeth. A partial denture is held into place using a system of thin clasps attached to natural teeth. A complete denture is typically held into place using a denture adhesive.

The point of your complete or partial dentures is to help improve your ability to eat and speak properly, and to restore your confidence in your smile. A denture will also fill in your natural facial volume, and each denture is custom made to fit your smile comfortably and securely. To learn more about the process of receiving your own dentures, and to talk with our team about whether dentures are the right restorative option for you, call or visit our office and schedule your consultation with our dentist. We look forward to helping you smile!

Q: What are dentures?
A: Dentures are custom-made, removable dental appliances designed to replace missing teeth and restore your smile. They are made from high-quality materials that resemble natural teeth, providing both functional and aesthetic benefits.

Q: What are the benefits of getting dentures?
A: Dentures offer numerous advantages that go beyond just restoring your smile. They improve your ability to speak clearly, chew properly, and eat a more balanced diet. Dentures can also help support facial muscles, preventing the sagging and sunken appearance that often occurs when teeth are missing.

Q: Are dentures uncomfortable to wear?
A: With advancements in dental technology, modern dentures are more comfortable than ever before. Our experienced dentists in Tulsa, OK, take precise measurements and craft dentures that fit securely and comfortably in your mouth. While it may take some time to adjust to wearing dentures initially, most patients find that after a brief adaptation period, the comfort level greatly improves.

Q: How long do dentures last?
A: The lifespan of dentures can vary depending on several factors such as oral hygiene, regular dental check-ups, and proper care. On average, dentures can last for several years. However, your dentist will assess the condition of your dentures during regular dental visits and recommend any necessary adjustments or replacements as needed.

Q: How do I care for my dentures?
A: Proper denture care is essential for maintaining their longevity and ensuring your oral health. Cleaning your dentures regularly with a soft-bristled brush and a gentle denture cleaner is crucial. Additionally, it’s essential to remove your dentures at night to give your gums and jawbone a chance to rest. Regular dental check-ups are also necessary to assess the fit and function of your dentures.

Q: Will dentures affect my ability to eat?
A: Initially, it may take some time to adjust to eating with dentures. However, as you become more accustomed to wearing them, you will regain the ability to eat a wide variety of foods with ease. Our dental team will provide guidance and dietary recommendations to help you adapt to your new dentures and make the most of your dental restoration.
