Missing teeth affect your ability to bite and chew and can also leave your facial features looking sunken around the lips and cheeks.

Using custom full and partial dentures, our dentists can restore the appearance and function of your smile.

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.

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Carthage, MS, practice, we'll assess your oral health and discuss your wellness goals. We will tailor the tooth loss treatment to your needs.

Treatment Planning

If full or partial dentures are right for you, we can develop a custom treatment plan. We'll go step-by-step through the process, so you know what's ahead.

Preparatory Procedures

If you have remaining teeth or a few teeth that cannot be saved, we may recommend extraction in order to accommodate a full denture or partial denture. Some patients require other procedures, such as treatment for gum disease. These treatments will ensure a healthy foundation for your denture.

Taking Impressions

We will take impressions of the upper and lower dental arch and any remaining teeth. This will help ensure that the appliance fits snugly and comfortably.

Crafting the Appliance

David C. Henderson, D.M.D. General Dentistry PA partners with a trusted dental lab known for its durable, high-quality work. Using the impressions provided, they will craft an appliance that looks just like natural teeth and that will last for years to come.

Checking the Final Fit

When the completed denture arrives at our practice, we will check on the fit and make any final adjustments, as needed. Once the appliance is comfortable and to your liking, the process is complete. You can smile with confidence and enjoy your favorite foods again.

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 at our Carthage, MS, dental practice.

Denture FAQ


Do dentures hurt?

No, your dentures should not hurt you. If you are in pain or notice your dentures are causing gum irritation, contact our Carthage dentistry practice. Your dentist can make adjustments to ensure your comfort and eliminate potential irritation.


How long will my dentures last?

With proper care and maintenance, your dentures can last up to 15 years. However, it is important to remember that your dentures will wear over time and will eventually need to be replaced.


Does insurance cover dentures?

This depends on your insurance plan and provider. We will check your coverage before treatment begins to determine if your insurance will cover treatment and what out-of-pocket costs you should expect.
