One of the oldest and most sought-after tooth replacement options, dentures can be used not only to replace the missing teeth but the surrounding tissues as well. Dentures are a preferable option to solve your concern when you have one or more of your teeth missing because of tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, injury, or any other reason. 


Dentures are prosthetic devices that act as an artificial replacement for missing teeth. They sit on the patient's jawbone and surrounding soft tissues and are supported and retained by the neighboring teeth. Dentures are fabricated from resin and mimic the gums, whereas the false teeth are made of ceramic that matches the natural teeth. 

At Ralston Creek Dental, we offer customized dentures to restore the appearance and functionality of our patient's teeth. 

Types of Dentures

Partial Dentures 

Partial dentures replace one or several missing teeth if the patient has some healthy teeth intact. They are fabricated from acrylic polymers or metal alloys and include metallic extensions that engage around the supporting teeth on both sides. 

Complete Dentures 

When the patient's entire teeth are missing, complete dentures replace them. Since the patient has no natural teeth left, complete dentures rest on the soft tissues and underlying jawbone for support. 


Overdentures are removable prostheses that are supported by your healthy tooth roots or dental implants. When compared to conventional dentures, overdentures offer better retention and stability. 

Implant-Supported Dentures 

Implant-supported dentures are supported by dental implants and can be used both for partial and complete replacement of your missing teeth. 

Immediate Dentures 

Immediate Dentures are prepared before the extraction of the patient's remaining teeth and are inserted immediately after the teeth removal. 

Benefits of Dentures

  • Dentures are an affordable teeth replacement treatment.
  • Dentures closely match the appearance of natural teeth.
  • Dentures improve the patient's bite, oral functionality, aesthetics, and facial contour.
  • Since dentures are customized as per the patient's oral contour, it offers a comfortable fit. 
  • With dentures, maintenance of oral hygiene is easy as the wearer can remove them as and when needed. 
  • Dentures are durable.
  • The procedure of securing dentures into the patient's mouth is non-invasive.


  • Take extra care while handling dentures as they may break if dropped.
  • When not in use, place the dentures in plain water or a denture cleanser soaking solution to prevent them from drying out. 
  • Brush your dentures daily to eliminate food and plaque, and prevent staining. 
  • Before inserting dentures, brush your gums, tongue, and palate well to remove plaque and stimulate circulation. 
  • If your dentures break, chip, or become loose, visit your dentist immediately.
