An annual checkup is important to maintain a healthy smile. Mr. Lima can examine your gums and tissues to provide you suggestions to maintain your oral health and dentures. Your gums and tissues change over time and your denture might become loose or ill fitting. During your checkup, we will clean and polish your denture at no charge, which is essential to your oral health.
Dentures come in many different types, most common dentures are complete and partials. Mr. Lima can recommend a denture type to your specific oral condition and aesthetic requests. Each denture is personalized to the individual needs and as to their specifications.
An implant-supported denture is when the denture is secured by an attachment and implant system. Implant retained dentures are more stable and “real” feeling than most types of dentures. Implants are a proven restoration option with a long, clinical history and an excellent success rate. Implants can help improve speech, comfort, appearance and overall experience with your dentures. Mr. Lima can recommend treatment types when it comes to dental implants.
Over time your gums will change and shrink, relines is when we add a new base material to the tissue side of a denture so it fits properly. Mr. Lima will need to take an impression inside your existing denture and rebuild the inside of the denture which will refit your denture to your gums. Relining a denture can restore your denture to make it feel like a new denture, a reline will only change the fit of your denture and will not change the appearance of it.
If you have a cracked or broken denture we can assess your denture and Mr. Lima can advise you on any necessary treatments required. We offer same-day repair service to broken dentures, or while you wait.
