Dentures

Dentures are a popular method for replacing lost teeth and can address both minor tooth loss and total tooth loss in a cost-effective manner.

This is especially true among patients who have certain oral conditions and health problems that might not make them a suitable candidate for dental implants. Dental Depot provides custom-made dentures to replace lost teeth and complete the appearance of smiles in a professional and compassionate environment.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used to replace only a few missing teeth. These prosthetics will be connected to banding that is concealed by the prosthetic teeth, themselves, as well as the patient’s natural teeth. The prosthetic teeth attached to a partial will fit next to or between existing healthy teeth.  A partial is supported by clasps that attach to biological teeth, and just like full dentures, partials are removed at night for cleaning and soaking.

Full Dentures

A full denture is used to replace an entire arch of teeth that are missing in the upper or in the lower jaw. For completely edentulous patients, two sets of full dentures are required to give the appearance and function of a complete smile. Full dentures rest directly on top of the gums where they are supported by the arched shape of the jawbone. Full dentures are removed for overnight cleaning and soaking.

Custom Made for Comfort and Quality

When a patient decides to receive dentures as their teeth replacement option, the process to fabricate them is very detailed and intricate so that his or her new teeth are customized to look and feel natural. Since everyone’s oral anatomy is unique, customization of prosthetic teeth is essential for increasing oral function and restoring smiles. From the size of one’s mouth to the shape and thickness of their jaws, dentures must be tailor made.

The process for creating dentures begins with taking pictures, X-rays and impressions (molds) of jaws and any existing teeth. Once this is complete, our dentists will determine the unique measurements of the denture(s). These specifications will then be sent to a dental laboratory where the full or partial denture will be created by skilled technicians.

In the interim, while patients are waiting for their new teeth, they may be given temporary prosthetics to wear. Once the dentures are ready, they will be sent to our office and patients will return for a final fitting, and if there are any issues with the way dentures fit, adjustments will be made.

In addition to being custom made, dentures are crafted from very high quality materials to help lend a natural appearance and improvement to one’s smile. Porcelain is used to mimic lost tooth structure while pink-colored acrylic is used to resemble gum tissue. The pink colored portion of dentures is important for creating a seamless transition from natural gum structure to prosthetics.

Customers Say

A big thank you to Dr Bohle and staff. I had concerns about my dentures. They handled my problem quickly and expertly and now I'm one happy person. I would highly recommend them to friends and family and I have.

There are certain things in life that you don't like, but you have to do it anyway. Like eat liver when your mom serves it, like go to work every morning, and go to the dentist twice a year for a checkup. If you do, your teeth will last you a lifetime. But if you don't, you'll end up with Dentures or implants. Natural teeth are a lot cheaper. Give this place a chance I think you'll be happy with results.

My husband had a tooth extraction done by Dr.Keaster. He was very gentle and got the tooth out without any problems. Destinie, Dr. Keaster's Assistant, did a wonderful job helping the patient and was very kind and excellent at her job. Even though she is our granddaughter, I am telling exactly how she was and I know that treats all of Dr. Keaster's patients the same joyful way. While there Destinie told Dr. Keaster about my teeth problems. He told her to do ex-rays and he would review them, which he did. A decision was made that I needed dentures. Those will be taken care of in October. Saw me and I didn't even have an appt. Great dentist, assistant, and the entire staff were all very helpful and professional and friendly. We have found our Dentist at Dental Depot!!
