Dentures and Partial Dentures are removable prosthetic devices which are worn to replace missing teeth. Several types of materials can be used to make the Dentures and Partials. For example, there are metal framework removable partial dentures or resin framework removable partial dentures. There are also overdentures which snap in and out of implants. At Thornton Valley Dental, Dr. Cettie will take his time to discuss all treatment options and determine what material/ type of denture is best for you.
What is the process for receiving dentures?
The denture process can take multiple steps and appointments. It consists of custom impressions to ensure a good fit of the denture. Dr. Cettie will then take several measurements to assure the best aesthetics and function of the denture. The denture is then fabricated and finished at a local Colorado Dental Lab. After the dentures are delivered to the patient, it may be necessary to come in a couple more times for follow up adjustments as needed.
