Periodontal disease, injury and tooth decay can all cause a loss of your natural teeth. However, we can bring back the smile on your face with dentures to restore your missing teeth. With improved technology and updated materials, dentists can now make them appear more natural and more comfortable for the patient.
Same Day Dentures
It can take weeks, maybe even months to create dentures at most dental offices. At Affordable Family Dentistry, we can make your new dentures in one day. Here’s how it works. You’ll arrive early in the day for impressions. Your impressions will be sent to our in-office dental lab where our experienced technicians will fabricate them. You dentures will usually be ready for pick up on the same day.
Partial dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth by attaching via a metal framework or acrylic base to your natural teeth. Partials are for patients needing to replace a few missing teeth. These dentures can be used either on the upper or lower arch. Partials should be handled with care, and should be cleaned each day to remove food particles and plaque.
Our experienced lab technicians can do most denture repairs in just one day. We keep the lab stocked with hundreds of teeth in a variety of shades, shapes and sizes so we can perfectly match your dentures.
Types of repairs include:
- Replacing broken or missing teeth
- Adding teeth to partials after natural teeth are extracted
- Fixing dentures that are fractured or broken in half
- Fixing metal clasps
Repair prices can vary.
Dentures are custom made for each patient to ensure proper fit. Natural changes in the mouth over time, such as bone and tissue shrinkage can make dentures feel loose and less stable. Dentures are also subject to wear and tear over time. We can reline your dentures to correct your fit. At Affordable Family Dentistry, all relines are performed in our in-office lab. Most relines can be processed the same day.
