Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?

If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to decay, illness, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period. 

Keep in mind, though, that immediate dentures do not have a "try on" period and can take some time to feel normal. They need to be regularly relined to ensure a continued, comfortable fit.

What are partial dentures?

Schedule a consultation at My Tooth Place to find out if immediate dentures are a match for your dental needs. If you are a great candidate, The metal framework provides strong support and helps with chewing when you are missing back teeth. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Acrylic partial dentures are another option. On the one hand, they tend to be cheaper than metal partials, but on the other hand, they don't last as long. They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while the dentist constructs permanent partials or bridges.

Can my dentures be repaired?

The denturists at My Tooth Place licensed can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs are completed on-site.
