Achieving suction on a lower denture is often very difficult, making a conventional lower denture problematic for many patients. This led Cole to complete training in Tokyo with Dr. Abe – the creator of the revolutionary Japanese Lower Suction Denture - in 2017. The technique utilizes new methods in impression-taking, bite registration and denture fabrication, and is successful for the majority of patients who are candidates for a lower denture. Learn More
If you are missing one or more teeth, partial dentures could be the solution. Removable partial dentures will create balance in your mouth and help you achieve a healthy bite. A partial denture may also help to prevent bone loss and any shifting of your natural teeth.
Immediate Dentures are an interim appliance to provide you with teeth during the healing of your mouth after extractions. An impression is taken of your mouth before the teeth are extracted and then the dentures are placed immediately on the gums following the extraction. Consult our experts to find out if Immediate Dentures are the right choice for you.
A dental implant provides a stable foundation to retain or support a denture. Think of dental implants as a titanium version of your tooth roots. Overdentures use the implants to provide retention and stability of the denture.
We offer same-day service for most denture repairs. In most cases, we can restore a broken or cracked denture. Repairs may be required when breakage or chipping occurs, or when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture due to tooth loss or extraction. Ongoing denture care, including relining and rebasing, is required when there is a change in the tissue due to bone resorption or shrinkage. Rebases are typically required every 2-3 years and can extend the life of your denture.
