Dentures will work well for some people. If they're at a point where their teeth are compromised and no longer working well, dentures are a reasonable option. I mean, people have been wearing dentures for years and we're much better at doing them than we ever used to be. We can put dentures in there. You can function with them. Most of the world doesn't know you have a denture. We get you comfortable, they stay in, and they work well for a long period of time.
I've made a lot of dentures in my career. They work well. People like them. If later on, sometimes they will decide to have implants to change them, but dentures are one way of remaking an entire smile. We make the teeth whiter, straighter, if they choose. Sometimes people with dentures want to have, “I've always had this space here. I've always had this tooth overlap.” We can make it look just like your own natural teeth. We don't want people to say, “Oh, you have a nice new denture.” We want them to say, “You have a nice smile.” That's what we want the denture to look natural, and function, and eat, and chew, and smile without thinking about it.

Choose From Several Types Of Custom Dentures
Dentures are replacement teeth. They look like natural teeth and fit right over your gums. Saliva or dental paste, along with a good fit, will hold them in place. Dr. Weddell offers three styles:
- Partial dentures for replacing a series of missing teeth
- Full dentures for replacing a full arch of teeth
- Implant-supported dentures that are held firmly in place by dental implants
Supporting your new dentures with dental implants offers you several unique benefits:
- Dental implants can stop or slow bone loss. Traditional dentures alone cannot.
- Dental implant dentures reduce gagging and friction that can cause gum irritation.
- Dental implants create a more secure hold than saliva or adhesives.
Understand The Process For Getting Your New Smile
You journey for replacement teeth will begin with a consultation with Dr. Weddell. He’ll chat with you about what you’d like to achieve with your replacement teeth. He’ll also explain the different choices to you, which include dental bridges and dental implants.
If new dentures are the best choice for you, you’ll discuss your options and schedule any oral surgery you might need to remove remaining teeth if you plan on getting a set of full dentures. Dr. Weddell may also choose to take impressions and images of your mouth at this time to create a model of your mouth.
Dentures can help you smile confidently, eat comfortably, and enjoy life again. Call 952-679-1365 today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Weddell. He’s a skilled dentist who can help you achieve the results you want.
