Dentures & Partials
While we wish no one would ever need dentures, sometimes they are the most reasonable option. In the past wearing dentures was the only form of dentistry available to improve a person's smile. When they are indicated we take the time necessary to create attractive, well fitting dentures. They can't beat a set of your own teeth when they are healthy and straight, but when natural teeth can't be restored dentures look great and chew well.
If a person has lost too much of their jawbone to steady their dentures, implants can be placed. The dentures are attached to the implants to hold them firmly in place. If you have this problem, call us for a consultation appointment. If needed, we will coordinate your care with our area's best specialist, hand-picked by Dr. Allen and Dr. Holm in their 20 plus years of practicing dentistry. (Be wary of general dentists who claim to do everything but merely "dabble" in the area of implants and dentures.) The skills of an implant surgeon, such as a periodontist, or a specialist in advanced restoration, such as prosthodontist, are sometimes needed to ensure that you receive the best of care in this technically advanced, rapidly-changing area of dentistry.
