Properly fitted, well-constructed dentures should allow you to eat without a problem and be so comfortable that you forget they are there. We specialize in full and partial dentures that restore full function without discomfort or embarrassment.
This full removable denture is made and placed in your mouth after the remaining teeth are extracted and tissues have healed. This process may take several months.
This removable denture is inserted on the same day that the remaining teeth are removed. Measurements will be taken, along with models of your jaw during a preliminary visit. You don’t have to be without teeth during the healing period, but may need to have the denture relined or remade after your jaw has healed.
Some of your teeth can sometimes be saved to preserve your jawbone and provide stability and support for the denture. An overdenture fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth after they have been prepared. Implants can serve the same function, too.
New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place. It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should go away. Follow-up appointments are generally needed after a denture is inserted so the fit can be checked and adjusted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult with us right away.
Good dental hygiene is still best practice even after dentures have been put in. Brush your gums, tongue and roof of your mouth every morning with a soft-bristled brush before you insert your dentures to stimulate circulation in your tissues and help remove plaque.
What to expect:
So impressed with my dental work I had to share, I had a few quotes from some other offices on Veneers. I chose this office due to the staff and confidence of the Doctor. As you can imagine getting front teeth worked on can be very scary. I am very very happy with my work and will be a lifetime patient.
We are new in town and saw good reviews for Ridgeway, so we decided to set up appointments. I had a great check up! The office was very clean and nice. The staff were kind, thoughtful, and knowledgeable! I'm actually not nervous to go to the dentist next time since it's at Ridgeway.
A beautiful place and an awesome atmosphere! Sarah, my hygienist is great. She’s super friendly and always does a great job! I know whenever I’m scheduled for any type of appointment that I’m in great hands! Highly recommend them for your dental care.
Just had my teeth cleaned here. Just a regular checkup. Holy wow the building is nice! Very friendly staff that greeted me when I walked in. Waiting room was very nice. Appointment was quick and easy. Highly recommend.
The new office is gorgeous, the technology and equipment is top of the line. My hygienist, Ally, was incredible! So informative and professional, she is great at what she does. I will recommend this office to all of my friends and family.
Great experience all around! Friendly front desk. Staff was all very nice and helped take the pressure out of a stressful situation. The doctor was great! Very personable and helped me understand what needed to be done.
