DENTURES & PARTIAL DENTURES
Dentures are removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to closely resemble your natural teeth and may even enhance your smile.
At Horizon Dental Care we specialize in creating custom, comfortable and handcrafted dentures in our professional, in-house Denture Laboratory. Our Hawley Office specializes in providing One-Day Dentures. Patients that need a new set or replacement set of dentures can schedule an appointment in our Hawley Office in the morning and by dinner time they can have a brand-new smile.
There are two types of dentures - complete and partial dentures.
- Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing.
- Partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain. A Partial denture not only fills in the spaces created by missing teeth, it prevents other teeth from shifting.
A Complete denture may be either "conventional" or "immediate."
- Conventional type denture is made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue has healed, usually taking 4 to 6 weeks. During this time the patient will go without teeth.
- Immediate dentures are made in advance and immediately placed after the teeth are removed, thus preventing the patient from having to be without teeth during the healing process. Once the tissues shrink and heal, adjustments will have to be made.
“One Day Dentures” are now available at our Hawley Office. Need a new set or replacement set of dentures right away? Horizon Dental Care won’t make you wait. Our full service, in-house denture lab can craft your dentures in less than 1 day. Schedule your visit before 11 AM and you can enjoy your new custom fit dentures by 6PM that day. (Some exceptions apply.) Contact our Hawley office for more information.
Dentures are very durable appliances and will last many years, but may have to be remade, repaired, or readjusted due to normal wear. At Horizon Dental Care we offer same day repairs (in most cases), partials with no clasps or with tooth colored clasps, and personalized, worry-free, comfortable dentistry.
