Properly fitted, well-constructed dentures should allow you to eat without a problem and be so comfortable that you forget they are there. We specialize in full and partial dentures that restore full function without discomfort or embarrassment.
This full removable denture is made and placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are extracted and tissues have healed. This process may take several months.
This removable denture is inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. Measurements will be taken, along with models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. You don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture relined or remade after your jaw has healed.
Some of your teeth can sometimes be saved to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An overdenture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after they have been prepared. Implants can serve the same function, too.
New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should go away. Follow-up appointments are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult with us right away.
Good dental hygiene is still best practice even after dentures have been put in. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.

I would highly recommend Dr. Collins and her staff! They are all super friendly and personable! I did Invisalign through them and was always able to get in and out in a timely manner! I’m very pleased with my results!
