Dentures in Grand Rapids
Having missing teeth can cause a decline in your smile’s aesthetic, oral health, and supporting bone structures. At Smiles by Design, LLC, we provide dentures to restore a patient’s ability to perform everyday activities such as eating and speaking. Dr. David A. Boone formulizes treatment plans based on an individual’s dental needs, whether they require partial or full arch dentures.
Full Arch Dentures by Dr. Boone
Our Grand Rapids dental office offers removable dentures that appear natural within patients’ smile. We tailor our care based on patients’ dental goals.
If a patient requires extraction and immediate dentures, we acquire impressions of their dental structures. Once the denture is provided, the patient must wear their appliance 24 hours a day for up to four months or until soft tissue has healed. You are then scheduled for a follow-up visit to re-line your current dentures, as there may be some changes to hard and soft tissues after extraction. Our dental lab provides same-day service for immediate denture patients.
During traditional denture processes, teeth are extracted, and gum tissues are given a chance to heal before your denture is placed. To ensure a proper fitting prosthetic, Dr. Boone takes impressions of your dental structures so new dentures may be fabricated. Routine examinations are provided to make sure your appliance fits comfortably.
Patients missing one or more teeth utilize partials to complete their smiles. Metal clasps are attached to surrounding teeth to ensure the prosthetic is secured. Partials are made from durable and sturdy material to restore your aesthetic and provide you with an improved bite.
Dental implants provide a stable foundation for dentures. Appliances retained by implants maintain jawbone density and are less likely to need adjustments over time. To be a viable candidate you must have sufficient supporting bone structure. If you meet the necessary requirements, your options are between an affixed or removable denture.
