Dentures in Socorro, NM

Dentures are removable or implant-supported oral appliances that replace missing teeth. They are designed to restore both function and appearance. Dentures are custom-designed to fit tightly and comfortably in your mouth. They can be removed for daily cleaning but should be worn as much as possible. Over time, your jawbone will shrink and change shape, causing your dentures to become loose and potentially uncomfortable. This is normal. Our dentist can refit your dentures by rebasing them or relining them as needed.

How Are Dentures Made?

Dentures are custom-fitted to your mouth. This ensures they fit perfectly and feel comfortable. The dentist takes a mold of your mouth and shares it with a dental laboratory. The sample model will be made in the dental lab and provided to you to be tried and tested for fit and comfort. The model is then checked for adjustments. Once perfected, the dentures are finalized, and the bite is adjusted. The whole process may take between four and eight office visits.

What Are Partial and Full Dentures?

Partial dentures are dental appliances that replace only a few selected missing teeth. They are made of prosthetic teeth held together by a plastic or metal frame. They are removable, but our dentist may also provide you with alternatives, such as implant-supported partials.

Full dentures are dental prosthetics that fit over an entire dental ridge (upper or lower). Unlike partial dentures, full dentures replace all the teeth along a dental ridge. Full dentures are sometimes referred to as complete dentures.

What Are Implant-Supported Dentures?

Dental implants are the most advanced option for tooth replacement. They are surgical-grade titanium posts that are surgically placed within the jawbone. After the implant has healed and fused with the jawbone, it can then be used as an anchor to permanently attach dentures.

What makes implant-supported dentures so great is that they look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. An implant-supported denture is the next best thing to having your own teeth back.

How Long Do Dentures Last?

Dentures can last many years if you take proper care of them. Clean them daily to remove food particles and plaque. Soak them in a denture cleanser solution at night. You may need to get new dentures after a few years if you notice changes in the way they fit or function. In many cases, restoring them through rebasing and relining would suffice.
