Dentures Q & A

What denture options are available?

The team at Alpine Dentistry offers an array of treatment plans for patients of all ages. From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting, or a later denture relining or repair, you can trust this expert team to deliver nothing but the best. Denture options at Alpine Dentistry include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

The licensed denturists make all their dentures in the dental labs at Alpine Dentistry. This is a great advantage, as you can see your dentures throughout the process. Along the way, your denturist can modify the fit and make changes to ensure your final smile is one you adore.

Since your dentures are made in-office, the turnaround time is much faster than it would otherwise be. Some other dental practices send dentures to a lab for fabrication, which can take weeks.

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 mean you never have to be without teeth.

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.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. The most common type of partials has a cast metal frame. If you’re a good candidate, your denturist will measure your jaw and build models of your mouth so they can construct your new set of dentures in the lab accurately and efficiently.

Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.

Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while your dentist makes permanent bridges or partials.

Where do I go for denture repairs?

The licensed denturists at Alpine Dentistry offer many types of denture repairs that can often be completed in a few hours. Denture repairs take place on-site.
