Do you have missing or broken teeth? Have you been putting off dentures because of the cost, time, and discomfort? It’s time to take back control of your smile!

Get your new dentures today at W Dentistry and start eating the foods you love and enhancing your quality of life. Dentures are an excellent option for patients with missing teeth or dental issues such as advanced tooth decay and gum disease when restoration of natural teeth is no longer possible. They are also beneficial if you have difficulty maintaining your natural teeth due to health reasons or physical limitations. W Dentistry is an affordable denture location that can help you achieve excellent oral health care, leaving you confident to show off your smile and take back your quality of life.

Implant-Supported Dentures

As technology advances, dental implant-supported dentures are the clear and popular choice for more comfortable and more stable dentures. Traditional dentures may shift and move in your mouth while you are wearing them, but implant-supported dentures “snap in” to implant anchors in your jaw, which keeps them steady and sturdy while you wear them. As few as 2-4 dental implants are needed to anchor a denture. These secure and stable denture implants allow patients to have confidence while eating, chewing, and speaking. Implants also help preserve the jaw bone, which maintains support for the denture and also preserves the full appearance of your smile and the lower half of your face. Without teeth or implants, your jaw bone dissolves, leading to a “collapsed” appearance of your mouth and face. Which option is right for you will depend on your health, the type of denture you require, how many teeth are missing, and the condition of your jawbone. We are here to help you make the best decision when it comes to your dentures. Dental implants require some healing time before we attach the denture to them, so keep that in mind if you choose this option!

What You Need to Know About Traditional Dentures

Traditional dentures are available through W Dentistry and are a great option for replacing your missing teeth, but it is essential to know that with the advantages of traditional dentures come some disadvantages. Traditional dentures take a lot of time to adjust to and can be a hassle for some, and many patients do not like to deal with messy adhesives and nightly cleanings. Speaking, chewing, and swallowing will all take some time to master with a new set of dentures because they are much less stable than natural teeth and rely on your mouth muscles and suction or gravity for retention. However, conventional dentures are a great and affordable denture option that allows you to have that perfect smile you’ve wanted after the loss of your natural teeth.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are an excellent option for patients that are missing some teeth but still have some natural teeth remaining. Unlike dental implants or a bridge, a partial denture is removable. It uses metal or flexible rubber-like clasps to grasp onto your natural teeth for stability.

If you choose dentures to replace your missing teeth, W Dentistry will be right by your side through the process, explaining financing options and creating a custom oral health plan for you to take back your smile. It may take some time to get used to wearing your new dentures, but over time they will come to feel natural and allow you to speak and eat more comfortably. Dentures are a great way to restore the quality of life you deserve, so contact us today for more information on our denture options and find which choice might be best for you!

FAQ's About General Dentistry

Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, we would love to hear from you.
Why do regular dental visits matter?
Regular dental visits are important because they can help spot tooth decay or gum disease early on, when treatment is likely to be simpler and more affordable. They also help prevent many problems from developing in the first place. Visiting your dentist regularly is also important because some diseases or medical conditions have symptoms that might appear in the mouth.
What can I expect on my first visit?
During your first dental appointment, we will begin by gathering all of the necessary information to determine your dental health. We'll take X-rays and examine your mouth for any problems that might need treatment. After cleaning you up, it's time to discuss all your dental solution options.
What insurance companies are you contracted with?
Although we do not contract with any insurance providers, we are able to accept most dental insurance on an indemnity basis. We will check with your insurance company to determine your out-of-pocket cost, and then get the claim started for you.

Because we accept dental insurance on an indemnity basis, you will need to pay for your services before we can begin any dental work. We accept cash, credit or one of our convenient financing options. Your insurance company will then reimburse you within a few weeks.
