About Dentures, Overdentures, Partials and Relines:

Dentures and Partials are made of acrylic which wears out over time. Hundreds of thousands of chewing cycles will wear out the biting surfaces of the teeth, and flatten out the back teeth. This in turn may wear out the front teeth and makes them much shorter. Acrylic Reline may be necessary for ill-fitting prosthetics.  Also, acrylic stains and becomes brittle over time.

Dental Implants are a great way to secure Dentures.  The added benefit of Dental Implants is that the supporting jawbone only has minimal changes.  If there are no teeth or implants in your jawbone, it can shrink rapidly.

All Prosthetics eventually need replacing due to poor fit. Poor suction that needs adhesive to secure your prosthetic may be aggravating. A Reline may be necessary over time to make them fit better. Studies have shown that the supporting bony structures do resorb over time causing Dentures and Partials to fit less securely over time. A prosthodontist is an expert in tooth replacement.

We are not satisfied until you are pleased with your final result.
