Though dentures of the past have a bad reputation, advancements in techniques and materials make dentures of today a customizable, comfortable, and attractive solution for missing teeth.

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are custom-fitted removable appliances designed to fully or partially replace missing teeth and gums. They consist of a durable base shaped like gums to fit securely inside your mouth. Artificial teeth are mounted to the base with varying levels of customization possible for a natural look and fit for each patient.

There are two main types of dentures:

traditional dentures

As the name suggests, they replace an entire arch of missing teeth and gums, whether in the upper or lower jaw. Full dentures are held in place by resting on the gums and palate. They’re a good option when all or most teeth are missing or need to be extracted.

partial dentures

 These replace sections of missing teeth and gum tissue while some natural teeth remain on or around the arch. Metal clasps fit around the remaining teeth to hold the partial securely in place. These are ideal when only a few teeth need removal rather than extraction of all of them.

The Benefits of Dentures

Modern dentures have come a long way in both fit and comfort from the bulky awkward options of the past. Today’s dentures offer significant benefits for individuals missing some or all of their natural teeth:

The Denture Fitting Process at Dentistry by Design

Crafting comfortable, great-looking dentures is both an art and a science. At Dentistry by Design, our team devotes meticulous care and precision to the entire denture creation process:

Initial Consultation

We take impressions of your mouth and the necessary measurements to craft a custom model matching your oral anatomy.

Try-in Appointments

You’ll try in your new dentures at multiple stages of the process to ensure proper color, shape, bite alignment, and comfort.  We make any necessary adjustments during these appointments before finalizing the dentures.


At delivery, we provide home-care instructions so you can adapt quickly to your new dentures. Follow-up appointments then allow for tracking your adjustment and addressing any minor fit or discomfort issues.

Routine Denture Care

Just like natural teeth, dentures require regular professional cleaning and maintenance for optimal performance. Patients of Dentistry by Design gain access to these services, plus relines, repairs, rebases, and replacements whenever needed for lifelong denture care.

Caring for Your Dentures

To keep your dentures functioning like natural teeth, be sure to incorporate these simple care guidelines provided by Dr. Robinette:

Frequently Asked Questions

Will getting dentures be painful?

Having any remaining unhealthy teeth gently extracted causes only minor temporary discomfort, easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Custom-crafting the dentures is painless since your dentist will take all necessary measurements and impressions without disturbing sensitive gum tissue.

How long does it take to get used to dentures?

Most patients require a brief adjustment period of several weeks to months to adapt to speaking clearly and chewing comfortably with their new custom denture set. We find taking things slowly, starting soft foods, and practicing talking helps speed total adjustment time.

Do dentures allow normal eating?

With full and partial dentures precisely fitted by an experienced dentist, patients can regain much of their original chewing capacity. While individual experiences vary, most patients report impressive improvement in enjoyable eating with their custom dentures.

What’s the average cost for dentures?

Both full and partial denture costs can range widely — anywhere from $300 to $2500 per plate in the US — depending on the materials chosen and the customization required.
