Dentures Q & A

Are there different types of dentures?

The expert cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists at Blakeney Dental provide a variety of treatment solutions for patients of all ages. From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting, or denture relining and repairs, you can trust this expert team to deliver nothing but the best. Your denture options include:

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

The licensed denturists at Blakeney Dental construct all of their dentures on location in their dental labs. You can see your dentures throughout the process, which is a significant advantage. Your denturist can make adjustments and changes along the way to ensure the ideal fit and most aesthetically pleasing finished product.

Should I get immediate dentures?

If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.

Are partial dentures the right choice for me?

Schedule a free consultation at Blakeney Dental to find out if immediate dentures are a match for your dental needs. Unlike full dentures, which replace all of your natural teeth, partial dentures only replace missing teeth. Dr. Ranzinger or a denturist on his team will measure your jaw and build models of your mouth so they can construct your new set of dentures in the lab accurately and efficiently. Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.

A more cost-effective alternative is acrylic partial dentures. They tend to be cheaper than partials with metal frames, but they also need to be replaced more often. Acrylic partials are usually a short-term solution that's worn while Dr. Ranzinger makes permanent bridges or partials.

What if I need denture repairs?

At Blakeney Dental, our licensed denturists can repair custom dentures in a matter of hours, sometimes while you wait, depending on the type of repair needed. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on-site.
