What Are Dentures?
Dentures are a custom way to replace many or all of your teeth. These removable teeth can help you eat, speak, and smile with ease and confidence. At KFA Dental Excellence, one of our highly skilled dentists can help you decide if you need full or partial dental dentures based on your current mouth and what your aesthetic and functional goals are. Full dentures can replace your whole upper arch, lower arch, or both. Partial dentures will use your remaining teeth as support for the dentures. While removable, dentures will be natural and beautiful and help you gain the smile you’ve been wanting.

Can I Get Dentures?
You could be a good candidate for dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth. If you have natural teeth, these can either be removed for a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial denture. We will discuss the benefits of each during your initial consultation. It's important that your gums and jawbone are still healthy as they will play an important role in keeping up your oral health with dentures. At your consultation, we will review your mouth and discuss your denture choices based on your needs and budget. At KFA Dental Excellence, we want to work with you to educate you and make a united decision together.
How Will You Create My Dentures?
Getting full or partial dentures is a great way to create the smile you’ve been wanting. After discussing your goals with one of our dentists, we will create a custom plan for your dentures. We will start by removing any teeth, if necessary, then take impressions. These impressions will help us customize your dentures so they are comfortable and fit properly. If you are getting partial dentures, we will match the natural color of your teeth to ensure your dentures match as seamlessly as possible. From there, we will fit the dentures to make sure they are secure and comfortable. KFA Dental Excellence has many state-of-the-art technologies to help make this process run smoothly, quickly, and efficiently.
What Should I Expect After Getting My Dentures?
While it’s likely you’ll love your smile right away, it can take some time for your new dentures to feel natural and comfortable. Rest assured, however, that it will become easier to eat and speak, and it shouldn’t be long before everything looks, sounds, and feels natural. If your dentures feel loose, let us know and we can have them readjusted for a tighter fit. Cleaning your dentures is similar to that of brushing your teeth; you will want to brush them twice daily, but you’ll also want to add in the step of soaking them when you’re not wearing them. This will ensure they do not dry out. Scheduling regular dental exams and teeth cleanings are important, as we will check your dentures during these times and make any necessary follow-up appointments for adjustments or replacements. However, with proper care, your dentures should last you a long time.
Will my dentures look fake?
No, they won't. At KFA Dental Excellence, we use the latest, cutting-edge materials to make our dentures. These materials can be customized to match the color of your gums and teeth so that they create a natural-looking smile that blends in seamlessly with your natural features.
What is a partial denture?
A partial denture is a smaller denture that may be recommended if you are only missing several teeth that cannot be addressed with a dental bridge. This helps restore your bite and smile and prevent tooth and bone loss while preserving your oral health. A partial denture is made to match the exact shape, size, and color of your natural teeth surrounding it so that it is virtually invisible in your smile.
What is the most common problem with dentures?
A poor fit. The one problem that causes the most issues with dentures is a poor fit. Poor-fitting dentures can slip, move, fall out, cause pain, or even affect the health of your teeth. At KFA Dental Excellence, your dentures will be custom-fitted and adjusted if necessary to ensure that you have a snug, comfortable fit.
Do you offer alternatives to dentures?
Yes, we do. In addition to full and partial dentures, we offer dental implants and implant-supported dentures to restore your smile. During your consultation, we will examine your teeth, listen to your concerns, then work with you to create the perfect treatment plan for your needs.
