From the initial consultation to the first denture fitting, or denture relining and repairs, this expert team offers the highest quality materials and overall experience. Your denture options include:

All dentures are constructed by licensed denturists in an on-site dental lab at Dutch Creek Dental. This can be a great comfort and advantage since you can see your dentures as they're being made. From start to finish, your denturist can monitor and alter the look and feel of your dentures to make sure you end up with a smile you're proud to show off.

What are immediate dentures?

If you're in need of full dentures because you've lost your teeth due to decay, illness, or injury, you could be a perfect candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are readily available, which means you don't have to suffer the inconvenience of not having teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.

What are partial dentures?

Visit Dr. Itoafa for a consultation and to see if immediate dentures are the best fit for your dental needs. If you are a good candidate, The metal framework provides strong support and helps with chewing when you are missing back teeth. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Acrylic partial dentures are a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.

Can my dentures be repaired?

Dr. Itoafa offers many types of denture repairs that can often be completed in a few hours and denture repairs take place on-site.
