Types of Dentures
Traditional Full Dentures
If you have lost all of your teeth, or require extraction of all remaining teeth, you may be a candidate for complete dentures. These restorations are likely what you picture when you think of dentures. A complete denture can replace the entire upper and lower dental arch. Our partner lab will create your prosthetic with a plastic base that matches the shade of your gums, and the synthetic teeth will have a natural appearance.
Traditional Partial Dentures
A partial will be recommended if you still have some remaining healthy teeth. A traditional partial denture is similar to a traditional full denture. However, it will only replace part of your dental arch and relies on hidden clasps that connect to your remaining healthy teeth.
We recommend implant-supported dentures for the most stable and realistic results possible. Dentures attach to implant posts that are surgically embedded in your jawbone. Dental implants will never allow your denture to slip out of place, and are the only restorative option that can prevent jaw atrophy following tooth loss. They can support full and partial dentures.
Our dentists will evaluate your oral and physical health to determine your candidacy for implant-supported dentures. If your jawbone has started to recede, you may require a bone graft or sinus lift before you can receive implants.
This full-arch restoration is made from state-of-the-art zirconia, which is incredibly durable and will not absorb stains or odors. It will attach to five or six implant posts, and your dentist will usually attach it on the same day as your implant surgery. Immediate dentures allow patients to enjoy the benefits of a complete smile right after dental implant surgery.
The Fountain of Youth Denture
The Fountain of Youth denture is a specially designed prosthetic that will fill in your lips and cheeks, giving you effects similar to a facelift. We can even attach this type of denture to dental implants.

"From beginning to the end of my visits, all levels of the staff are professional and superb. Dr. McIntyre is excellent. He listens to the customer. He picks up on what the customer wants and follows up on it. After my surgery Dr. McIntyre called that evening to check on me, and to answer any further questions. A true caring person and doctor. The best dentistry around. I drove 2 1/2 hours for the best dentist." Eric L.
