Dentures Q & A

Are there different types of dentures?

Vanguard and Achury Dental's cosmetic dentists and licensed denturists offer a variety of all-in-one treatment options for women and men of all ages. 

From the preliminary consultation to completed dentures, or a later denture relining or repair, you can trust this expert team to deliver nothing but the best. Your denture options include:

  • Metal framework partial dentures
  • Acrylic partial dentures
  • Dental implants and crowns
  • Denture relines
  • Soft denture liners
  • Implant-supported dentures

The licensed denturists at Vanguard and Achury Dental construct all of their dentures on location in their dental labs. This can be a great comfort and advantage since you can see your dentures as they're being made. 

The Vanguard and Achury Dental team believes the art of making attractive dentures rests in finding the right balance between which natural features to maintain and avoid in the making of your denture.

 During your consultation, the team talks to you about your aesthetic goals to design an custom denture for you. Your denturist can adjust the fit and feel of your dentures along the way to ensure your final smile is one that's both comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.

What are immediate dentures?

Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. 

Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period. 

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.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Book a free consultation at Vanguard and Achury Dental to learn more and determine if immediate dentures are the best solution for you. 

They only replace missing teeth, rather than all of your natural teeth, like full dentures. the denturist or dentist measures your jaw and makes models of your mouth. These models allow them to build your dentures in-office, in their lab quickly and efficiently. 

Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.

A more cost-effective alternative is acrylic partial dentures. They tend to be cheaper than partials with metal frames, but they also need to be replaced more often. 

They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while the dentist constructs permanent partials or bridges.

What if I need denture repairs?

Vanguard and Achury Dental's licensed denturists can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. They can repair your existing or custom set of dentures on-site.
