Licensed denturists construct all dentures on site, in the dental labs at Dastrup Dental. You can see your dentures throughout the process, which is a significant advantage. Along the way, your denturist can modify the fit and make changes to ensure your final smile is one you adore.

What are 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 can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period.

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.

Should I get partial dentures?

Partial dentures with a metal framework are the most common type of partials. Partials dentures are different than full. Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth while partial dentures only replace your missing teeth. Metal-based dentures are standard, especially for patients missing rear teeth.

The sturdy framework makes it possible for you to chew, bite, and eat a variety of foods. 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 a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.

Can my dentures be repaired?

Dastrup Dental's licensed denturists can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. They repair your custom dentures or an existing set of dentures on-site.
