"My initial appointment and cleaning went great. The staff , hygienist's, and doctors's were very pleasant and answered all the questions I had. The cleaning was the most in depth cleaning I've ever received , and the doctor took her time to sand down an old filling without any extra charge outside of the cleaning. I was made aware of many "little" things about my teeth and gums that I was not aware of before and there was no push from any staff to get extra work done that wasn't needed. The office , waiting room, and rooms in the back were very well kept and comfortable. Located in a very nice neighborhood. I would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a dentist!"- R.V. / Yelp / Mar 06, 2020

Ideal Candidates for Dentures
Dentures can be used to replace upper and/or lower teeth. You may be a good candidate for custom dentures if you have lost a few or all of your teeth or if you need to have unsalvageable teeth removed and replaced. Healthy natural teeth may be left in place to provide support and anchorage for partial dentures. In some cases, a set of dental implants may be surgically positioned in the jaw to which a fixed implant-supported denture can be attached. When you visit with our team to discuss tooth replacement, we will examine your mouth and jaw and explain your denture options based on your needs and goals.
What Is the Denture Process?
The type of dentures you are receiving will largely determine the treatment process for your tooth replacement:
Full dentures: Full dentures are crafted in a dental lab from impressions taken of your mouth. These removable appliances are made of acrylic, resin, and/or metal framework and fabricated to mimic the appearance of natural teeth and gum tissues. If you have teeth that need to be extracted, we may take impressions of your mouth first and have our lab make an immediate denture to be worn right after your teeth have been removed. Once your mouth has fully healed, about 8 – 12 weeks later, we will take a new impression to make your conventional denture.
Partial dentures: Partial dentures will be customized to blend with your natural teeth for a seamless result. As removable appliances, partial dentures are held in place through metal or plastic clasps that attach to support teeth. Our team will take an impression of your upper and lower arches, which our partner dental lab will use to customize your tooth replacement.
Fixed (implant-retained) dentures: After a series of dental implants are placed in the jaw, our team will take an impression of the mouth from which the lab will use to create a special implant-supported denture or full-arch appliance. Our dentists will then securely attach the appliance to the implants.
Once your new denture is ready, we can adjust the fit as needed to ensure comfort and stability. In some cases, a small amount of denture adhesive may be helpful in keeping your denture in place.
Caring for Your Denture
It may require some time before your new denture feels comfortable and natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your denture ever feels loose, please contact our practice to have it adjusted or possibly relined. At home, you can keep your denture clean by taking it out and brushing it after every meal. When you remove your denture before bedtime each night, it should be soaked to prevent them from drying out. Even if you have full dentures in both arches, we still recommend that you keep routine dental visits at Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics so that we can evaluate the fit of your tooth replacements and health of your underlying gums and bone. We can also use a professional solution to clean your dentures during your appointment. When well-cared for, dentures can last for several years.
Does Insurance Cover Dentures?
If you have insurance, a portion of your custom dentures may be covered under your plan. We will be happy to provide a complimentary benefits analysis to help you maximize your coverage and provide an estimate of any personal costs. To make dentures as affordable as possible, Grove Dental Group and Orthodontics accepts several forms of payment, including special patient financing through Wells Fargo.
