Dentures

Dentures have become a specialty in the dental field, as fewer and fewer dentists choose to learn and practice the ‘art’ of creating dentures. Dr. Spitz is a specialist in creating dentures, and considers dentures a great way to replace missing teeth. His training and experience allow him to custom-create dentures that fit well and are comfortable for you. These days there are many options available; removable or secure, partial dentures or full-mouth, with implants or without.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I get dentures, will they look fake?
The best dentures are the result of carefully adhering to the proper steps in the denture fabrication process. On your first appointment with Dr. Spitz you will create your personal “before and after” photo so that you and the doctor can see the final look before you begin. During the process, you will frequently “try in” your new teeth so that you can feel and see the shape, bite and final look of your new smile.

Do all dentures become loose-fitting over time?
The bone that supports a denture was initially the primary support for your teeth. As your bone is constantly changing, removable dentures will move over time. The length of time a denture will retain its good fit depends on an individual’s bone structure. The option of dental implants allows the dentures to “lock” into the bone structure. This will significantly lengthen the comfortable fit you would enjoy.
