Are immediate dentures right for me?

Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. Immediate dentures are readily available, which means you don't have to suffer the inconvenience of not having teeth.

One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Partial dentures with a metal framework are the most common type of partials. Unlike full dentures, partials are meant to replace a few missing teeth, not all of your natural teeth. 

The rigid metal frame provides sturdy support for chewing, particularly when you're missing molars. Partial dentures with metal frames securely anchor to your existing teeth and stay in place without the use of dental adhesives.

Acrylic partial dentures are another option. On the one hand, they tend to be cheaper than metal partials, but on the other hand, they don't last as long. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while the dentist makes permanent bridges or partials.

Can my dentures be repaired?

Dr. Throne and the team can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs are completed on-site.
