Dentures Q & A

What denture options are available?

Lodi Healthy Smiles’ cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists provide a variety of treatment solutions for men and women of all ages. 

From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting, or a later denture relining or repair, you'll enjoy only the highest quality materials and service. Denture options at Lodi Healthy Smiles include:

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

The licensed denturists at Lodi Healthy Smiles construct all of their dentures on location in their dental labs. This is a great benefit since you can see your dentures being made and adjusted throughout the process. 

From start to finish, your denturist can monitor and alter the look and feel of your dentures to make sure you end up with a smile you're proud to show off.

Should I get immediate dentures?

You might be a prime candidate for immediate dentures if you've lost your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, and need full dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. 

One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Visit Lodi Healthy Smiles for a free consultation and to see if immediate dentures are the best fit for your dental needs. If you're a well-suited candidate, the denturist or dentist measures your jaw and makes models of your mouth. 

These models allow them to build your dentures in-office, in their lab quickly and efficiently. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.

Where do I go for denture repairs?

Lodi Healthy Smiles’ licensed denturists can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs are completed on-site.

To help prevent issues with your dentures, especially during physical activities like contact sports, consider wearing a custom-made mouthguard. 

The team at Lodi Healthy Smiles can fit you for a comfortable, highly effective mouth guard to provide excellent protection for your dentures.
