A denture is a dental prosthesis that replaces missing teeth. They can replace all the teeth in the arch, or a partial denture can replace some missing teeth. Dentures can be a great option for those whose teeth have broken down due to various causes including periodontal disease.
Dentures can be removable or fixed with implants. Not all dentures are alike. Don’t be fooled by a quick fix when it comes to replacing your teeth. A premium denture requires precision measurements and time to fabricate. Dr. Cotham strives to fabricate a custom denture that is comfortable, functional and fits just right.
Yes, dentures can be made in one visit with low-cost materials. We find that many of our patients are seeking out a replacement set for these hastily made dentures. The savings of a cheap denture are offset when you must have another set made.
We want a to make you a high-quality denture that functions in your mouth and not in a drawer. We also fabricate dentures with a mindset that the patient may choose to support the prosthesis with implant fixation in the future.
Dr. Cotham’s denture fabrication process includes the opportunity to see how it will look in your mouth similar to the Smile Design process. We want to make sure you are extremely happy with your new smile before we deliver the final product: High-quality dentures that look like natural teeth, are comfortable, and that last.
