Dentures in Colorado Springs, CO

What Are Dentures?

Dentures are a set of removable artificial teeth and gums used to replace missing teeth, restore their function, fill in gaps in the mouth, and restore support to the face. We offer both partial and full dentures to fit every patient’s needs in Colorado Springs. 

Partial dentures are used to replace one or a few missing teeth, and clip onto metal clasps that are placed in the abutment teeth. Full dentures replace an entire arch or both arches of teeth and necessitate the extraction of a person’s remaining natural teeth. 
Dentures are fabricated using impressions of your mouth so they conform to your gums and jaw comfortably. Over time, your facial structure may change due to bone loss and you will need to have your dentures replaced, relined, or rebased.

The Denture Placement Process

Consultation & Impressions

The process begins with a consultation with one of our Colorado Springs dentists. After performing an oral exam and taking x-rays, we can tell you if you’re a suitable candidate for dentures. Patients receiving full dentures will need to have their teeth extracted first. We'll then take impressions of your mouth and measurements of how your upper and lower jaw fit together. This info is sent to the dental lab that will fabricate your dentures. A temporary immediate denture will be placed to replace the missing teeth until the gums have fully healed in 8-12 weeks.

Trial Denture Fitting

Once we have the first set of dentures available, you will return to our Colorado Springs dental practice for a trial fitting. At this appointment, you will take note of how the dentures look and feel. We can make adjustments if they are not quite right yet. Once the fit has been perfected, we will have one final fitting and you will go home with your permanent dentures.
