About Full and Partial Dentures
Dentures may be a good option if you need a convenient replacement solution for several or all of your teeth. Removable dentures can restore your smile and allow you to speak and eat with greater confidence. Our talented dental team is pleased to offer custom full and partial removable dentures to help patients in the Cranston and Warwick, RI area overcome the loss of teeth. Full dentures replace your whole lower arch, upper arch, or both, while partial dentures use your remaining teeth as support. In a number of cases, dental can also be attached to a set of dental implants placed in the jaw for enhanced stability and biting power. At Cranston Dental Group, we can help you determine whether removable or fixed (implant) dentures fit your needs and custom-create your replacement teeth for a beautiful and natural-looking result. We also offer denture repair to address any damage and get you back to enjoying your smile. Schedule your visit with our team today and learn about your tooth replacement options.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dentures?
You could be a good candidate for dentures if you are missing some or all of your teeth in one or both arches. Any remaining natural teeth can be removed for a full denture (if they are unhealthy) or kept in place to support a partial denture. If you have solid and healthy jawbone tissue, you may be a candidate for implant-supported dentures, which are supported in the jaw much like natural tooth roots. Modern dentures are made from a variety of high-quality metal, resin, and lightweight plastic materials and are designed to mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gums. During your treatment consultation, we will assess your oral health and help you select a denture option that fits your budget and tooth replacement needs.
What Is the Denture Process?
To begin the denture process, our team will take an impression of your upper and lower arches for our lab to use when customizing your replacement teeth. Any nonrestorable teeth, or those that cannot be saved, may need to be extracted at this time. Our team will design your false teeth based on the shape of your mouth, facial profile, and cosmetic preferences for your smile. Partial dentures will be constructed to blend evenly with the shade of your natural enamel and will anchor in place to remaining teeth with metal or plastic clasps. Full dentures will cover the entire upper or lower arch and may be held in place with a small bit of adhesive. When your dentures are ready, we will have you return to try them in or attach them to dental implants that were previously placed in the jaw.
Caring for Your Dentures
Once your custom dentures are finished, we will adjust the fit so they feel comfortable and secure and discuss methods to care for your replacement teeth. It may require some time before your new dentures feel comfortable and natural, but it should eventually be easier to speak and eat normally. You can care for your false teeth each day by brushing them after each meal and soaking them at night to keep them from drying out. Whether you wear full or partial dentures, it is still important to keep up with routine dental visits at Cranston Dental Group. Our team will evaluate the health of any remaining teeth, the health of your gums and bone, and the condition of your tooth replacement. Please contact us right away for fast denture repair if your replacement teeth become damaged in any way.
