Dentures are removable prosthetic devices made of a gum colored acrylic base that supports a set of realistic-looking artificial teeth. Also known as false teeth, dentures are the most common, popular and affordable options for replacing some or all of your teeth.

Western Dental offers three types of dentures (full, partial, and implant).

Full Dentures

Full dentures are complete sets of artificial teeth. They’re fully removable and are primarily held into place by suction.

Partial Dentures

If you have some teeth remaining, partial dentures may be a good option. Although partial dentures are attached to your natural teeth with nylon or metal clasps, they are also fully removable.

Implant Dentures

Also known as overdentures, implant dentures are full dentures that are set into place by dental implants (small screws attached to your jawbone). Implant dentures remain stable in your mouth while also being fully removable.

Denture Care

Whether you have full, partial or implant dentures, all forms must be properly cared for and cleaned. Here are a few tips to keep your dentures looking great:

  • Remove and rinse your dentures after eating
  • Carefully handle your dentures (don’t bend or damage while cleaning)
  • Clean your mouth after denture removal
  • Brush your dentures each day
  • Soak your dentures overnight
  • Rinse your dentures before putting them back into your mouth
  • Schedule regular dental checkups
