Dentures Q&A

What are dentures?

Dentures are oral prosthetics that replace missing teeth. They can restore some or all the teeth in your mouth. These custom-made prosthetics allow you to eat, speak, and smile with confidence while preventing your facial tissues from sagging. Most dentures consist of acrylic, metal, and nylon materials that mimic the appearance of your teeth and gums. 

Are there different types of dentures?


Affordable Dental Associates offers multiple types of dentures, such as:



Partial dentures are ideal if you have several missing teeth but still have a fair amount of healthy teeth left. These restorations attach to a metal or ceramic framework to blend in seamlessly with your teeth and gums.



Also called full dentures, these prosthetic teeth completely replace your teeth. After removing all the teeth in your mouth, the team creates custom-made prosthetics to restore your smile and tooth function.



Implant-supported dentures connect to dental implants or replacement tooth roots. The team surgically places implants into your jawbone and attaches them to your dentures for enhanced stability and support.


After a comprehensive dental evaluation, the Affordable Dental Associates team can recommend the right type of dentures for you.

What does getting dentures involve?


Dentures take several visits to create, ensuring the perfect fit. During your first appointment, the team performs a dental exam, removes any unhealthy teeth you have, measures your mouth, and takes digital X-rays. They may also take additional imaging scans, such as cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT), to view your tooth-supporting structures. 


The team sends your scans and impressions to an outside lab, creating your dentures. They create a wax mold for you to try on to ensure your prosthetic teeth feel comfortable and complement your facial features.


When your permanent dentures arrive, the team guides you through the care process and 

what to expect during your first few weeks. Dentures allow you to eat, speak, and smile comfortably. If your dentures loosen or shift over time, the team can make adjustments to ensure a fit that feels natural.
