About Dentures and Partial Dentures
Dentures allow you to experience a life of confidence once again after substantial tooth loss. We offer full dentures that are used to replace all missing teeth or partial dentures for patients who still have healthy teeth remaining. Our prosthetics are designed to provide premier comfort and aesthetics, and they are truly built to last. In addition to traditional removable dentures, we also offer implant-retained prosthetics, which can give patients the most secure and stable fit available today.

Our team creates custom dentures made for you and helps you select the shade and shape.

Partial dentures are used if you have several teeth missing that cannot be corrected with a dental bridge. A partial denture is created to replace those teeth. The denture is removable and designed to fit comfortably and to blend in with any remaining teeth. This type of denture is made from a synthetic material that is supported with a lightweight metal. It mimics your gum tissue and teeth to create a natural-looking smile, while still remaining functional. The partial denture is important once the teeth have been removed to preserve the bone and to keep existing teeth from tilting and growing in towards the gaps.
Although dentures and partials are a great way to replace missing teeth and prevent jawbone deterioration there are other options available. Dr. Hamlett and Dr. La Mastra are certified to treat tooth loss patients with dental implants and implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and are effective because they form a bond with the jaw. This process, called osseointegration, allows the dental implant to have to most secure and natural fit possible.
Implant-supported dentures are also a good option for patients who want dentures that are held in place by implants. With this procedure, only a few implants are placed in the jawbone and the dentures are secured to the implants. The result is dentures that won’t slip, allow you more flexibility in eating, and added prevention in the onset of jawbone deterioration.
