Dentures and Partial Dentures

Dentures and partial dentures are removable dental prosthetic devices used to replace missing teeth and restore oral function, aesthetics, and confidence for individuals who have lost some or all of their natural teeth.

Dentures in Phoenix, AZ 

Dentures, the removable dental appliance that replaces missing teeth, are of two types - full and partial. Full dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when there are still some natural teeth remaining. Dentures are custom-fabricated to fit in your mouth comfortably. The appliance can be held in place by dental implants or adhesives.

A partial denture is a removable dental appliance used to replace missing teeth where there are still a good number of natural teeth remaining. It can consist of one or more dental prosthetic teeth attached to a gum-colored base. It fills the gap in your smile and prevents other teeth from shifting out of place as you chew and speak.


  • Replace missing teeth: Dentures and partial dentures are used to replace missing teeth and restore the ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
  • Improve aesthetics: Dentures and partial dentures enhance the appearance of the smile by filling in gaps left by missing teeth and restoring facial contours.
  • Restore oral function:Dentures and partial dentures restore chewing ability, speech clarity, and facial support, allowing patients to enjoy a better quality of life.
  • Prevent oral health problems: By replacing missing teeth and maintaining proper dental alignment, dentures and partial dentures help prevent oral health issues such as shifting of remaining teeth, bone loss, and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders.

Procedure for Dentures and Partial Dentures in Phoenix, AZ 

Impressions are an important part of fabricating dentures. Impressions are taken of the jaw to determine the shape of your teeth and your bite alignment. The impressions are sent to a lab where your dentures will be fabricated.
At-home impression kits are a good option for patients but often require multiple tries. Our dentists are experts at taking impressions. We can take impressions of your jaw in just a few minutes and with a high level of accuracy.

Once our dentist has taken impressions of your mouth, you will have another appointment to review the results. Your dentist will make adjustments as necessary, and once you are satisfied with the appearance, your dentures will be fabricated by a dental laboratory.  

How to Care for Your Dentures and Partial Dentures in Phoenix, AZ 

When you receive your dentures or partial dentures, they will feel bulky. Over time, they will adjust. After a few weeks, you’ll start to get used to them. But, when you first start wearing dentures, you’ll need to take special care of them.


  • Regular cleaning: Dentures and partial dentures should be cleaned daily using a soft-bristle toothbrush and denture cleaner or mild soap. They should be rinsed thoroughly after meals and before bedtime.
  • Overnight soaking: Dentures should be soaked in a denture-cleaning solution or water overnight to keep them moist and clean while not in use.
  • Denture adhesives:Denture adhesives may be used to enhance the stability and retention of dentures, especially for lower dentures that tend to be less stable.
  • Regular dental visits:Patients with dentures or partial dentures should schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings to monitor oral health, evaluate the fit of the prosthetic appliances, and address any issues or concerns.
