Am I a good candidate for immediate dentures?

If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period of time. One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Should I get partial dentures?

Kenneth Gonzales, DDS, offers free consultations to determine if immediate dentures are right for your dental needs. They only replace missing teeth, rather than all of your natural teeth, like full dentures. The dentist or denturist will measure your jaw and build models of your mouth so he or she can construct your new set of dentures in the lab accurately and efficiently. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure ― all without dental adhesives.

A more cost-effective alternative is acrylic partial dentures. They tend to be cheaper than partials with metal frames, but they also need to be replaced more often. Acrylic partials are usually a temporary solution for missing front teeth while the dentist makes permanent partials or bridges.

Can my dentures be repaired?

The licensed denturists at Kenneth Gonzales, DDS, PLLC offer a wide range of denture repairs in just a couple hours, or even while you wait. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on site.
