why choose dentures?
Dentures are a less-invasive option for tooth replacement but still resemble a full, natural set of teeth. Many patients appreciate that they can remove their dentures when necessary. An additional factor in choosing dentures is the cost. In most cases, this treatment is more affordable than implants and other restorative solutions.
Other benefits of dentures include:
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Restore function to your teeth
- Improves speech capabilities
- Allow for easier chewing
- Look similar to natural teeth
- Can last up to 15 years or longer
- Support cheeks and lips to prevent sagging
- Boost confidence

Oftentimes, when people picture dentures, they envision a full set of false teeth attached to pink, gum-colored acrylic bases. However, partial dentures can be created to fill small gaps in your smile. The overall structure of a partial denture is similar to a full denture, but partials often have a clasp or connective piece that attaches to the natural teeth surrounding your gap.
Implant-supported dentures, sometimes referred to as snap-in dentures, are held in place by as little as four dental implants. Dental implant dentures eliminate the need for adhesives and provide a more secure fit. The prosthesis is composed of a gum-like acrylic base with false teeth attached. This treatment works for the upper and lower jawbones but is more commonly seen in the lower.
Can I sleep in my dentures?
While sleeping in your dentures isn’t necessarily harmful, it’s best to take them out at night. Wearing dentures places a great deal of pressure on your gums and jawbone throughout the day and removing your denture allows them to relax.
How do I care for my dentures?
The first step to caring for your dentures is following a rigorous at-home hygiene routine. When removing your dentures, try placing a towel down on the counter to prevent breakage if they’re dropped. It’s also important to have a durable container to place them in when traveling.
What is the average cost of dentures?
The cost of treatment ranges on a case-by-case basis. However, we’re committed to offering affordable dentures to our patients. For our uninsured patients, we offer an in-house membership that specifically offers 15% off of dentures. We also accept third-party financing through CareCredit® for out-of-pocket expenses.
How long will my dentures last?
With proper care, dentures can last up to 10 years or longer. Over time, our mouths change and it’s possible that your denture may need a few adjustments during that time. Ensure you’re bringing your dentures to your biannual cleanings so we can inspect their fit on a regular basis.
How should I clean my dentures?
Never use abrasive toothpaste on your dentures as they can damage the acrylic. You can brush them with antibacterial soap or soak them in a dental-specific cleansing solution. Ensure you’re cleaning your dentures after each meal to rid them of any leftover food particles.
