Dentures are available for most patients who have lost one or more teeth. This option helps to restore the function and look of your smile.
Many patients may experience tooth loss due to accidents, decay, or any other reason. For these patients, dentures are the first treatment option that often come to mind. However, there are several treatment options available to help patients gain back the confidence they had with their natural teeth!
Dr. Barrett’s advanced training and many years of experience help him to make and fit dentures to your exact specifications. However, we do recommend using dental implants to stabilize your dentures to give them a natural look and feel.
Implant-supported dentures are much more secure than removable dentures. They give the patient the ability to eat just about anything! The more implants the better, as each one creates more stability and gives an overall more stable appearance.
For those who elect to move forward with removable dentures, Dr. Barrett does have the ability to make adjustments to ensure maximum comfort and proper fit. If you feel that your dentures are not fitting properly or causing any issues, we are more than happy to help.
At our office, we can provide you with various denture options depending on your needs.
Traditional partials are held in place by metal clasps that go around existing teeth to secure them in place.
With flexible, no-metal partials (some with a cosmetic clasp), no one will notice you’re wearing a partial denture.
These temporary dentures are placed immediately after any teeth are extracted so you can leave Smiles of West Point with an aesthetically pleasing and more functional smile. This appliance will assist in healing your gums as you wait for your permanent denture to be made.
These dentures can be removed by your dentist for maintenance and cleaning. They are securely attached to mini-implants to provide the patient more stability and comfort.
Our skilled and experienced team can perform denture relines and repairs in many cases, whether we created the denture or not. There are cases where a new appliance may be necessary.
