Your teeth are responsible for several important functions, including chewing, speaking, and maintaining proper jaw structure. They’re also responsible for your dazzling smile, so maintaining a good set of teeth is important.

When properly cared for, dentures can last for decades, so they’re an excellent investment in your long term health.
What Types of Dentures Are Available at Your Practice?
Technological advances in dentistry have dramatically increased the types of dentures available. Your dentist will work with you to obtain the best denture for your lifestyle and preferences.
What Are Full Dentures?
A full denture will replace all your natural teeth in one or both jaws. To obtain a complete denture, your dentist will take measurements and make impressions of your teeth and gums first. Then, he or she will extract any remaining teeth and install implants as necessary. You’ll be given a temporary denture to wear until your gums have healed, and then your permanent denture set will be secured and adjusted. We want to ensure your new dentures are as comfortable as possible and work properly, call our dental office today to schedule your consultation with one of our experience dentists..
Should I Get a Partial?
A partial denture is used when you have most of your teeth and they’re healthy. The partial is affixed to the adjacent teeth with clasps and must be removed and cleaned each night. Partial dentures and bridges are similar, but bridges are permanently anchored whereas a partial is removable.
Is a Flexible Partial Better than a Regular Partial?
Some denture wearers prefer a flexible partial because it moves with their mouth. Both the partial and the clasps are gum colored so they blend in better with your remaining teeth.
Why Is an Implant-Supported Denture a Good Choice?
Rather than rest on the gums like a traditional denture, an implant-supported denture is anchored by implants in the mouth. It’s usually installed on the lower jaw only and must be removed and cleaned daily.
Are All-on-Four Dentures Right for Me?
An All-on-Four is a full denture that closely imitates your real teeth. It’s anchored into your gums by four implants and is usually used in the bottom jaw only. This type of dental appliance is convenient and provides additional biting power.
What’s Involved In Getting Dentures?
Getting new dentures in Connecticut involves several steps, but will vary according to the client. Your dentist will first measure your mouth and take impressions of your teeth and gums which will ensure an accurate and comfortable fit for your new dentures. Teeth will then be extracted and implants installed as necessary and you’ll receive a temporary denture while you wait. When your gums have healed, your permanent denture will be secured and adjusted so that it fits and works well. Call us today to learn more about our affordable quality dentures.
How Much Do Dentures Cost?
The cost of a new denture depends on the type of denture you need, the material needed to make it, and the amount of dental prep work that will need to be done. Call our office today and we can answer your questions about getting new dentures in Connecticut.
Why Get a Soft Denture Reline?
A soft reline involves covering the hard acrylic substance that comprises most dentures with a soft, pliable substance that some wearers find more comfortable.
