Board-certified dentist Dr. Eric Capps and his expert team are dedicated to providing our patients the highest-quality care and finding the right solution to fit your unique oral health needs. Partial or full removable dentures may be a great solution for you if you have lost several teeth or a full arch. With removable dentures, you can regain your confidence and your ability to speak and eat with ease. At Made Ya Smile Rayford, we have been treating patients with natural-looking denture solutions, custom-made for each patient suffering from tooth loss, for over 30 years. Partial dentures fill the gap left by several missing teeth in the jaw and use surrounding teeth to support the appliance. Full dentures replace all teeth in both the upper and lower arches of the mouth. Tooth loss can negatively affect the appearance of your smile and your overall health. We want to help you find a viable solution, so we invite you to call us today to schedule a consultation to find out if dentures are right for you.

Best Candidates for Dentures
As a good option for replacing several missing teeth, dentures can replace a full arch or can be partial, replacing only a few lost teeth. Dr. Capps and our dental team may recommend that healthy teeth remain in place in the case of a partial denture. Prior to suggesting a full denture, we will need to ensure that you have a healthy foundation with optimal gum tissue and adequate jaw contours. For some patients looking for a long-lasting, secure restoration, dentures can be fixed to an implant that is surgically placed into the jaw. During your initial consultation, we will able to better recommend the best type of dentures for your specific concerns and needs.
What To Expect with Dentures
To begin, we take upper and lower impressions of your mouth so we can make your custom dentures. Immediate dentures can sometimes be created for use in the short term prior to any tooth extractions. You can use this short-term solution while your extraction sites and tissues heal and while you wait for your final dentures to be ready. We partner with a high-quality lab to ensure you receive comfortable, natural-looking dentures. They use lightweight materials or metal framework and resin to construct your custom dentures. For partial dentures, your replacement teeth will be customized to match the shade of your other teeth for an aesthetically pleasing blend that looks natural within your smile. We will have you return to try your new dentures on, or have us attach them in place, when they are returned to us. At that time we will ensure they fit well and comfortably in your mouth, and we will give you cleaning, storage, and maintenance instructions.
It may take time for your dentures to feel like a natural part of your smile. As you adjust to the feel of them, you should find it easier to speak and eat normally. It may be necessary to use denture paste or adhesive to keep your full denture in its proper position. Partial dentures do not require adhesive, as they rely on metal or plastic clasps to securely attach to neighboring teeth. We're here to make adjustments to your custom dentures if necessary in order to ensure you have a comfortable fit.
Just as with teeth, it's extremely important to brush your dentures after every meal. You can use a toothbrush and mild toothpaste, or you can use a denture brush. When you remove your dentures to sleep, you should soak them in water to keep them from changing shape or drying out. It is important to maintain your regular bi-annual cleanings and exams even though your dentures replace your natural teeth. During your routine care, we will monitor the health of your gums and jaw, the fit of your dentures, and we are able to remove denture stains with a special solution. It may become necessary to replace or reline your dentures in time, but with proper care, your partial or full denture can serve you for years.
Dentures Insurance Coverage
If you have dental insurance, your plan may provide some coverage for your partial and full dentures.
