Acrylic Dentures

The advantage of acrylic dentures is a very natural appearance.

They bond to the denture base so the teeth stay on the denture longer.

A good range of teeth available in difference shapes, sizes, and colors.

Acrylic is great for dentures as it is moldable and will adapt and flex to the changes in your mouth over time.

Dr. Dennis will work with you to preserve your natural teeth if at all possible, rather than extract them, but sometimes permanent dentures are the only way to provide the appearance of teeth and facilitate eating and speaking.  Getting permanent, full dentures takes about one or two days.

The Denture Process Involves Several Appointments and the Following Steps:

  • Impressions: Your dentist takes several impressions of your jaw and measures the space in your mouth.
  • Models: Dr. Dennis has a mold of wax or plastic made in the exact shape of the denture so you can try it and make any adjustments to the color, shape, and fit before the permanent dentures are made.
  • Cast: The final dentures are cast, and then adjusted as necessary.

Once your permanent dentures are in, we recommend that you wear them 24 hours a day, even while sleeping, to determine whether there are any spots that need adjustment. 


It’s important to ensure a good fit right away, because poorly fitting dentures can be irritating to the gums.

Once you have adjusted to the dentures, you can remove them at night to allow normal stimulation of the gum tissues by the tongue and saliva, which helps keep your gum tissue healthy.

What If I Don’t Want Dentures?

Missing teeth tend to make people feel self-conscious about their smile and appearance. If you’re missing most or all of your teeth, the insecurity can become unbearable. 

Dr. Dennis may recommend acrylic dentures for missing or damaged teeth; however, some people feel insecure about wearing dentures, as it makes them uncomfortable to eat and speak.

Are There Alternatives to Dentures?

Dr. Dennis may recommend dental implants, or a dental bridge as denture alternatives. She will go over your tooth replacement options based on your x-rays, your oral health, jawbone density, and then number of missing teeth. She will help you make the best decision for your situation.

Dental Implants

The most common and effective alternative to dentures is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium fixtures that are surgically inserted into your jawbone and act as anchors to hold your replacement teeth. After getting the implants, you’ll have to wait 3-6 months for the implants to bond with your jawbone to ensure the success of your replacement teeth.

Many people go with dental implants because they are a more long-term and durable option and look like your real teeth. Dental implants can last a lifetime if properly taken care of. Unlike dentures, dental implants are not removable, making them very comfortable for everyday activities like eating and speaking. In order to qualify for dental implants, you must have healthy gums and a sufficient amount of supportive jaw bone.

Dental Bridges

If you're only missing one tooth, Dr. Dennis may recommend a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a prosthetic tooth held in place by crowns or dental implants on both sides. The only downside to a dental bridge is that we have to remove healthy tooth structure from adjacent teeth to place the crowns. Otherwise, a dental bridge can be a great alternative to dentures. Unlike dentures, you don’t have to worry about a tooth bridge slipping while you talk, eat, and smile.

Ask Dr. Dennis

If you’re against getting dentures for your missing teeth, there are other ways to get your beautiful smile back. Whether it’s dental implants or a dental bridge, there are alternatives available Dr. Dennis will go over with you to ensure you are comfortable and confident with your new teeth.

Common Questions About Dentures

Will my dentures need adjusting?

Yes, one small adjustment could dramatically increase your comfort in no time.

What are dentures made of?

We use acrylic with porcelain prosthetic teeth, the most natural look of all dentures.

Will my dentures change color?

The porcelain material is a permanent shade we match the color of your natural teeth.

How do I clean my dentures?

You will brush and rinse your dentures daily.  We will provide you with detailed instructions at the time of service.

How often do I clean my dentures?

Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed with soft bristles 2-3 times daily to remove food and plaque. You will soak your dentures in a cleaning solution at night.  Your dentures need to stay moist when not being worn to hold their shape.  

What do you use to clean them?

Yes, you may use dish soap, denture cleaning solution, mouthwash, or cold water to clean your dentures, but never toothpaste as it can be too abrasive for dentures.

How long will my dentures last?

Although it can vary from person to person, your denture should last 5-10 years.  If you have been wearing the same set of dentures beyond ten years, have them assessed by your dentist to make sure they are still functioning properly.

Will I need to dental glue?

You may comfortable wear dentures without adhesive and they will fit and function properly.  However, dental adhesive can improve the retention and stability of your dentures as long as it is used according to instructions.

Will dentures bother me?

Anything new or foreign requires a period of adaptation during which the dentures may seem awkward at first. Your mouth will adapt to the new sensation in no time.

What if I don’t want dentures?

If you don’t want dentures we will check your x-rays and see if you have enough bone to completely envelope a dental implant, if not we can easily do a bone graft to prepare for an implant.

What is a full set of denture?

6 upper and 6 lower prosthetic teeth are considered a full set of dentures.

May I sleep in my dentures?

Yes, you may wear your dentures at night but we highly recommend you remove them each night to give your gums a chance to relax and soak them in a cleanser while you sleep.  This is a good routine for your oral hygiene.

Reneé Ruud

Dr. Dennis is not only a very knowledgeable and skilled dental practitioner, but she's also extremely conscientious. A friend was told by another dental office that all their fillings and caps needed to be replaced. A second opinion with Dr. Dennis was that her fillings and caps were fine, and that a very minimal amount of work was needed. Another story, My Aunt went to a dental office for a denture replacement; seven visits later her dentures still didn't fit, and the office refused a refund.  She went to Dr. Dennis, she  made a new set that fit perfectly, the first visit.  The office staff is extremely friendly and professional, and not only is Dr. Dennis darling, but she's very warm, compassionate and non-judgmental. She is very aware of any apprehension or discomfort, and immediately takes steps to alleviate your fear. Her work is beautiful, and her patients leave feeling as if they have made a new friend.
