A traditional denture appliance includes a flesh-colored acrylic base, which fits over your gums, and artificial teeth. Using the latest digital technologies, Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey create durable, custom dentures to precisely fit the contours of your mouth. When their design is complete, the computerized blueprint is delivered to our partner lab for fabrication, and your new dentures are ready in five to seven days.
Dr. Parr and Dr. Frey can perform any needed extractions, providing relaxation techniques and anesthetic options to keep you comfortable for the procedure. Depending on the individual case, you may receive an immediate full denture placement at that point, or may return for fitting after your gums are healed. If your teeth are placed immediately, you will return for a fit adjustment in a few months. Because the gums naturally change shape over time, periodic adjustments to these dentures are necessary.
Implant dentures are an ideal teeth replacement method for many patients, providing optimal strength and stability. These dentures attach to titanium implants placed in the jaw bone, which act as artificial roots for your new teeth. Halting the jaw bone loss that occurs with tooth loss, implant dentures are a permanent solution, eliminating the necessity of ongoing fit adjustments.
Dr. Parr places and restores dental implants in coordination with Dr. Frey at The Smile Center. In addition, they offer the cost-effective option of converting your traditional dentures into an implant-supported appliance.
