Missing Teeth & Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues that allows you to enjoy the smile you are proud to show off. Losing your teeth, whether from tooth decay, injury, gum disease or other oral issue, can be deflating. That’s why dentures are a wonderful alternative.


Types of Dentures

Dentures should not change your appearance much as they are made to closely resemble your natural look. These dentures exist in one of three forms:

  • Conventional Dentures - These dentures are the ones we most often hear about. Users place this fully removable, complete denture in their mouths once all remaining teeth are removed and tissues are healed.
  • Immediate Dentures - These complete dentures are placed in your mouth on the same day your remaining teeth are taken out. Dr. Moore and his team will take measurements of your teeth during an earlier visit so that model replicas of your teeth are ready to be worn during the healing period.
  • Overdentures - These partial dentures are used when some of your original teeth remain in the mouth to provide support and stability. This type of denture also helps preserve the jawbone.
