Your denture options include:

All dentures are constructed by licensed denturists. This can be a great comfort and advantage since you can see your dentures as they're being made. From start to finish, your denturist can monitor and alter the look and feel of your dentures to make sure you end up with a smile you're proud to show off.
What are immediate dentures?
You might be a prime candidate for immediate dentures if you've lost your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, and need full dentures. Immediate dentures are readily available, which means you don't have to suffer the inconvenience of not having teeth. Keep in mind, though, that immediate dentures do not have a "try on" period and can take some time to feel normal. They need to be regularly relined to ensure a continued, comfortable fit.
Should I get partial dentures?
Visit DHS Dental for a free consultation and to see if immediate dentures are the best fit for your dental needs. If you are a good candidate, the dentist or denturist takes measurements of your jaw and makes models of your mouth so they can construct your new dentures in their lab as efficiently as possible. Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.
Acrylic partial dentures are a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while the dentist makes permanent bridges or partials.
What if I need denture repairs?
DHS Dental's licensed denturists can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. They repair your custom dentures or an existing set of dentures on-site.
