Our dentist, Dr. Stulic, loves creating and crafting beautiful
functional dentures. He will work with you through a series of
appointments, usually five, to get the best result and encourages input
from your family for feedback. The before picture to the left is a photo
of an actual patient and their poor fitting, unaesthetic, and
non-functional dentures. The after picture is a photo of the same
patient after receiving their new, proper fitting, beautiful dentures,
showing our meticulous dental reconstruction work. You can click on the

have been happier.

patient special to find out how affordable our quality complete dentures
Conventional removable complete dentures are an affordable
alternative to implant supported complete dentures. Removable complete
dentures replace all of the missing teeth in the arch. Complete dentures
are either "conventional" or "immediate." When you have no teeth in
either or both dental arches, then a complete denture is recommended
provided there is enough jawbone left to support the complete denture.
If there is little to no bone support left, then an implant supported
complete denture is better suited to provide anchorage and stabilize the
denture. Immediate dentures are used when a number of teeth need to be
extracted and the dentures are made ahead of time so the patient
"immediately" receives the dentures the day of the extractions.
Immediate dentures usually look great because results are instant, but
usually have to be remade or relined as healing takes place and the
alveolar bone and gum tissue shrinks.
Conventional dentures are made after the teeth have been extracted
and the gum tissue has healed and stabilized, usually after a few months
or so. Immediate dentures are made in advance and can be placed as soon
as the teeth are removed, so you do not have to be without teeth during
the healing period. A disadvantage of immediate dentures is that bones
and gums shrink over time, especially during the healing period
following tooth removal. So immediate dentures require more adjustments
than conventional dentures to fit properly during the healing process
and generally should only be considered a temporary solution until
conventional dentures can be made.
