For those patients who have no option, due to extensive tooth decay or advanced gum disease, we are able to offer dentures and partials. Many of these patients want to have their denture or partial on the same day their teeth are extracted.
We are able to provide this service by taking the impressions of the mouth before the extraction visit. The impressions are then sent to a dental laboratory, and the denture or partial is constructed and ready to be placed on the day of the extractions.
As the healing process occurs, the gums will shrink. As a result, the denture or partial will loosen and need to be refitted at a later date.
As a more stable alternative to partials, we recommend implant dentistry -- a nice option for those patients wishing to get away from having removable teeth.
