Dentures

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 Carthage 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.

Types of Dentures

Different kinds of dentures are available based on the extent of a patient's tooth loss and their oral health goals. We can discuss the ideal dental procedure for your needs during a consultation.

Full Dentures

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

Partial dentures

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.

Implant-Supported Dentures

/

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

Initial Consultation

During your initial consultation at our Carthage 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 then develop a custom treatment plan. We'll go step-by-step through the process so you know what's ahead.

Tooth Extraction

If you have a remaining tooth or a few teeth that cannot be saved, we may recommend extraction in order to accommodate a full denture or partial 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 their 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 done. 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.
