Emergency or Otherwise
Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures and partial dentures are artificial replacements for your natural teeth and gums. In either case, your Able dentist will make a model of your teeth by taking impressions to create custom-made dentures.

Partial dentures may be used when remaining teeth are not strong enough to hold a bridge or in cases where several teeth are missing. Partial dentures are made up of one or more artificial teeth held in place by clasps that fit onto adjacent natural teeth and can be removed for cleaning.

Your Able dentist will make models of your jaws during your first visit to create immediate dentures before extractions are done. Immediate dentures are used during the healing period of up to 6 months. During this time, your bones and gums shrink and your immediate dentures may need to be relined by your dentist for a proper fit. Conventional dentures are used after your teeth have been extracted and the gums and jaw tissues have healed.
