Nobody likes dentures, because everyone wants to keep their own teeth and I understand that, but there are times that people's teeth are broken down through decay, genetics, or trauma, where dentures can be a very good solution.
I've made a lot of dentures in my career, so I've got a lot of experience at doing it, and the people that we make dentures for are very appreciative. They're at the point where there aren't any other good options for them, and so therefore we're able to take things and many times, they haven't been able to eat for a number of years comfortably and they've had spontaneous toothaches on a regular basis for a number of years.
And we put the dentures in there, they have function for the first time in a while, and they can smile without embarrassment, where they had not been able to smile fully or talk with a hand in front of their mouth and sometimes we will combine some implants with some dentures.
People say, “Oh my gosh, I feel like I'm in my twenties again. I've got teeth that I can eat things that I haven't been able to eat before.” There are so many things we can do with dentures and gosh, they've been waiting so long to do something, and we've got an answer now for them.
And I hear often what I finished making a denture for someone, “I wish I'd started this earlier. I wish I'd worked up my nerve earlier. This was wonderful. I was thinking it was gonna be so much worse.”

Choose From Several Types of Custom Dentures
Dentures are replacement teeth that look like natural teeth and fit right over your gums. Saliva or dental paste, along with a good fit, will hold them in place. We offer 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.
Enjoy Peace of Mind With Our Professional Care
Your journey for replacement teeth will begin with a consultation with your dentist. 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. We may also choose to take impressions and images of your mouth at this time to create a model of your mouth.
Bloomington dentures can help you smile confidently, eat comfortably, and enjoy life again. Call 952-679-1365 today to schedule your consultation with one of our skilled dentists. We can help you achieve the results you want.
