Dentures and partials are recommended when you need to replace multiple teeth. Dr. Shaileshkumar Bhatt will examine your entire mouth and discuss your options with you so that you can choose the type of denture that is right for your situation.
Dentures are removable oral appliances and consist of a series of prosthetic teeth anchored in a plastic base. Complete dentures replace an entire dental arch. Partial dentures are used when you have some teeth remaining and are usually stabilized with clasps or a thin framework. When you receive dentures, you will need to plan on having five or six appointments with our dentist. The process of creating dentures is somewhat lengthy, and we take great care to ensure that your dentures fit and function properly before sending them home with you.
When you have completed the denture creation process, we will provide you with instructions on how to clean, care for and maintain your appliance. Dr. Bhatt will also check your dentures at each of your regular dental exams to make sure they are in good condition and do not require any maintenance or repairs.
