What are immediate dentures?

Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. 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.

Should I get partial dentures?

Removable partial dentures with a metal frame are the most common type of partial dentures. If you're a suitable candidate, Metal-based dentures are standard, especially for patients missing rear teeth. The sturdy framework makes it possible for you to chew, bite, and eat a variety of foods. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.

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. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while Dr. Bishop makes permanent bridges or partials.

What if I need denture repairs?

Steelecroft Dental offers 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.
