Dentures, also known as false teeth, are prosthetic teeth worn by those who have lost their natural teeth through injury or illness. There are many different types of dentures designed to address a variety of dental situations. Dentures may be removable, or dental implant-supported, full or partial, and they may replace teeth on the lower mandibular arch or the upper maxillary arch.

What Are Dentures?
Those who have lost their teeth find both functional and aesthetic benefits from dentures. Well-made dentures allow the wearer to enjoy all kinds of food, whereas missing teeth or poor dentures significantly restrict chewing ability and, therefore, food options. Dentures also support the lips and cheeks, improving the appearance of a patient who has lost his or her own natural teeth. Furthermore, well made and well-fitting dentures help strengthen muscles controlling your expressions that require the support of your teeth, rid you of pronunciation problems caused by missing teeth and aid with chewing.
Dentures are custom-designed to fit each patient’s mouth, and skill and patience are required to create an effective set. Poorly made dentures can cause significant discomfort and erode the gums and bones of the jaw, leading to greater oral problems. A combination of implants and removable pieces are often the best option.
Who is a candidate for Full Dentures?
If you’ve lost, or are losing, all of your teeth, a complete denture is something to discuss with your Main Street Dental dentist. If some of your teeth remain and are healthy, a partial denture may be your solution to a great smile.
The possibility of denture treatment should be thoroughly discussed with your dentist, as there are several personal and medical factors to take into consideration. You may instead be a candidate for dental bridges and dental implants as optional procedures.
We absolutely love this office. I have extremely high anxiety and they are so patient with me. My 4 year old asked if we can go back next week as she had a wonderful time at her cleaning. Great experiences every time and billing is very reasonable.
From the minute you walk in, everyone is kind and professional. The hygienists and dentists provide clear instructions and the front desk always has the paperwork taken care of right away. Just a great group of people!
Amazing office, I have been going here for 25 years since I was a kid. I broke my tooth playing hockey, they got me in the very next morning, referred me to a specialist for more detailed gum work (who I seen the next day) and temporarily fixed my tooth all in the same week. Great office and everyone seems to have a sense of humor!
I have been going to Main Steer Dental for over 5 years and I can say that I am very satisfied with quality of care I have received. Punctual, clean, friendly. The stuff is professional and competent. I definitely recommend this office for all your dental needs.
