How Dentures Work
Dentures are custom dental appliances made for people who are missing multiple or all of their teeth. Dentures brace around the jawbone and gum tissue along the dental arch. Denture adhesives and creams can be used to improve the stability of the denture.
With a denture in place, you'll be able to eat solid foods and smile with renewed confidence.

Types of Dentures
Full dentures are recommended when someone is missing most or all of their teeth. A full denture replaces an entire row of teeth along the entire upper or lower dental arch.
Partial dentures are used when someone is missing multiple teeth but is not a good candidate for a dental bridge. The missing teeth do not need to be in a row.
If you have enough healthy jawbone structure, you may be eligible for full or partial dentures supported by dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are surgically anchored into the jawbone. They offer a higher level of stability than denture adhesives. To get implants, you'll need sufficient jawbone structure, healthy gums, and be in good overall health.

"I would recommend Dr. Henderson’s practice to anyone! I have been going here since I was a little girl and now I have all three of my children going. I recently took my two year old for her first dentist appointment and she loved it and can’t wait to go back! The staff here are wonderful, very helpful, and make you feel like family as soon as you walk through the door." Haley Johnson - 5 Star Google Review
The Denture Process What to Expect During Treatment
Denture wearers often experience enhanced dental health, better nutrition, and improved self-esteem.
Implant-Supported Dentures Understanding the Process
Dental implants require oral surgery and a months-long recovery process. During your consultation, we will assess your general health and candidacy for implants. When creating your treatment plan, we will let you know about the cost of your implant-supported dentures and the number of implants needed. Once oral surgery is completed, it will take several months to heal before the final full or partial denture is placed.
