Dentures in Las Vegas

Dentures & Partial Dentures in Las Vegas

If you have lost all or some of your teeth, our expert dentists can fit you with comfortable dentures or partial dentures. Dentures and partial dentures are removable devices that look, feel, and function similarly to the real teeth that you’ve become used to.

When teeth start falling out, bone loss begins in the jaw. This is due to the lack of consistent pressure created through normal chewing. Facial muscles can start to sag and the jawline weakens, which can affect your appearance. With full dentures or partial dentures, you can have a new smile at an affordable price. Dentures will slow bone loss in the jaw, and allow you to eat and speak again with much less difficulty.

Your dentist can help you select the right fit based on measurements and models.

Our Denture and Partial Denture Options Include:

  • Conventional dentures: If some teeth are remaining, they will be removed and once the tissue heals, conventional dentures will be custom-fitted based on the model of the patient’s mouth.
  • Immediate dentures: After remaining teeth are removed, immediate dentures are placed right away, so you don’t have to be without teeth during healing. Immediate dentures may need to be refitted after healing.
  • Overdenture: With overdentures, the remaining teeth do not have to be removed. The dentures are modeled based on the patient’s mouth and they are supported by the existing teeth.
  • Partial dentures: If you have most of your teeth but you are missing a small section, partial dentures can replace these teeth with a removable device.

Caring for Your Dentures

Your dentist will give you detailed care instructions when you get your dentures or partial dentures. This will include guidelines for how long to wear them. At first, you will probably be advised to wear them even when you sleep, but this will change as your mouth adjusts. After the adjustment period, it is good practice to take the dentures out while you sleep.

Make sure to handle your dentures or partial dentures with care and clean them properly. The following are good practices to keep your mouth healthy and your dentures looking their best:

  • Brush dentures daily with a soft bristled brush
  • Clean your gums and palate with gauze or soft bristled brush
  • Never use bleach, hot water or abrasive cleaners on your dentures
  • Don’t allow your dentures to dry out
  • Use ADA-approved denture cleansers
  • Cushion hard surfaces with a towel to prevent damage from dropping your dentures
  • Remove dentures at night or as instructed by your dentist
  • If dentures are slipping or uncomfortable, have them adjusted

Denture and Partial Denture Repairs and Adjustments

If your dentures or partial dentures dry out, a tooth is loose, or you notice other damages, do not try to fix them yourself. Cracks, chips and other issues can be fixed by your dentist, typically in one day. However, attempting to fix them without the right expertise can cause serious problems.

Dentures take on a big job, and they do eventually wear down. Over time, dentures will need to be relined, rebased, or remade due to normal wear. To reline or rebase a denture, the dentist refits the existing denture base, or make a new one, and reattaches the existing (undamaged) teeth. Dentures will also need to be refitted over time as the shape of your jaw and gums change. Ill-fitting dentures can cause irritation, sores, and infection, so it’s best to refit your dentures whenever you notice a problem. With affordable denture care, you can make sure that your dentures always fit comfortably.

Complete dentures are called “conventional” or “immediate” according to when they are made and when they are inserted into the mouth. Immediate dentures are inserted immediately after the removal of the remaining teeth. To make this possible, the dentist takes measurements and makes the models of the patient’s jaws during a preliminary visit.

An advantage of immediate dentures is that the wearer does not have to be without teeth during the healing period. However, bones and gums can shrink over time, especially during the period of healing in the first six months after the removal of teeth. When gums shrink, immediate dentures may require rebasing or relining to fit properly. A conventional denture can then be made once the tissues have healed. Healing may take at least six to eight weeks.

An overdenture is a removable denture that fits over a small number of remaining natural teeth or implants. The natural teeth must be prepared to provide stability and support for the denture. Your dentist can determine if an overdenture would be suitable for you.

New dentures may feel awkward for a few weeks until you become accustomed to them. The dentures may feel loose while the muscles of your cheek and tongue learn to keep them in place.

It is not unusual to experience minor irritation or soreness. You may find that saliva flow temporarily increases. As your mouth becomes accustomed to the dentures, these problems should diminish. One or more follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your Las Vegas cosmetic dentist immediately.

Dentures can be made to closely resemble your natural teeth so that little change in appearance will be noticeable. Dentures may even improve the look of your smile and help fill out the appearance of your face and profile.

Eating will take a little practice. Start with soft foods cut into small pieces. Chew slowly using both sides of your mouth at the same time to prevent the dentures from tipping. As you become accustomed to chewing, add other foods until you return to your normal diet. Continue to chew food using both sides of the mouth at the same time. Be cautious with hot or hard foods and sharp-edged bones or shells.

Pronouncing certain words may require practice. Reading out loud and repeating troublesome words will help. If your dentures “click” while you’re talking, speak more slowly. You may find that your dentures occasionally slip when you laugh, cough or smile. Reposition the dentures by gently biting down and swallowing. If a speaking problem persists, consult your dentist.

Your dentist will provide instructions about how long dentures should be kept in place. During the first few days, you may be advised to wear them most of the time, including while you sleep. After the initial adjustment period, you may be instructed to remove the dentures before going to bed. This allows gum tissues to rest and promotes oral health. Generally, it is not desirable to wear dentures continuously.

Denture adhesive can provide additional retention for well-fitting dentures. Denture adhesives are not the solution for old, ill-fitting dentures. A poorly fitting denture, which causes constant irritation over a long period, may contribute to the development of sores. These dentures may need a reline or need to be replaced. If your dentures begin to feel loose or cause pronounced discomfort, consult with your dentist immediately.

Dentures are very delicate and may break if dropped even a few inches. Stand over a folded towel or a basin of water when handling dentures. When you are not wearing them, store your dentures away from children and pets.

Like natural teeth, dentures must be brushed daily to remove food deposits and plaque. Brushing helps to prevent dentures from becoming permanently stained and helps your mouth stay healthy. It’s best to use a brush designed for cleaning dentures. A toothbrush with soft bristles can also be used. Avoid using hard-bristled brushes that can damage dentures.

Some denture wearers use hand soap or mild dishwashing liquid, which are both acceptable for cleaning dentures. Avoid using other powdered household cleansers, which may be too abrasive. Also, avoid using bleach, as this may whiten the pink portion of the denture.

Your dentist can recommend a denture cleanser. Look for denture cleansers with the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Products with the ADA Seal have been evaluated for safety and effectiveness.

The first step in cleaning dentures is to rinse away loose food particles thoroughly. Moisten the brush and apply denture cleanser. Brush every surface, scrubbing gently to avoid damage.

Dentures may lose their shape if they are allowed to dry out. When they are not being worn, dentures should be placed in a denture cleanser soaking solution or in water. Your dentist can recommend the best method. Never place dentures in hot water, which could cause them to warp.

Ultrasonic cleaners are also used to care for dentures. However, using an ultrasonic cleaner does not replace a thorough daily brushing.

You can seriously damage your dentures and harm your health by trying to adjust or repair your dentures. A denture that is not made to fit properly can cause irritation and sores. See your dentist if your dentures break, crack, chip, or if one of the teeth becomes loose. A dentist can often make the necessary adjustments or repairs on the same day. A person who lacks the proper training will not be able to reconstruct the denture. This can cause greater damage to the denture and may cause problems in your mouth. Glue sold over the counter often contains harmful chemicals and should not be used on dentures.

Over time, dentures will need to be relined, rebased, or remade due to normal wear. To reline or rebase a denture, the dentist uses the existing denture teeth and refits the denture base or makes a new denture base. Dentures may need to be replaced if they become loose and the teeth show signs of significant wear. Dentures become loose because a mouth naturally changes with age. Bone and gum ridges can recede or shrink, causing jaws to align differently. Shrinking ridges can cause dentures to fit less securely. Loose dentures can cause health problems, including sores and infections. A loose denture also makes chewing more difficult and may change your facial features. It’s important to replace worn or poorly fitting dentures before they cause problems.

She helped me understand what my insurance paid. She was very caring and helpful. Dr. Justice was very patient, and explained every he was doing for my procedure.

First time here and I had a great experience! I was brought back almost immediately, where Carlos, the dental assistant, did the flossing and polishing. Vicki, the dental hygienist, did my cleaning and gave me an informative lesson on why I should be flossing. I told her ahead of time that I had sensitive teeth on the bottom and she was very gentle in that area, unlike some other cleanings that I’ve had. Overall, I was out in about 45 min. Super quick and efficient!

I'm a new patient and have had a very positive first impression. Latisha is a wonderful receptionist who helped with pre-paperwork. Thelma is great with billing, and took the time to do steps of approval for CareCredit, a great plan that allows monthly payments for extensive dental work. Vicki is a stellar hygienist with just the right touch. Carlos and Cashmere were great, and the good Dr. Justice was caring and professional. Thanks to all of you!

This place is absolutely fantastic, fun, & clean! I've always wanted to get braces put on but never could because almost every dentist in vegas requires care credit and have money upfront. This place was the only place I could find that allows me to do payment plan out of pocket!!! My monthly visits has been quick. My very first visit here for consultation I had my two young toddlers( 2 & 4) with me and I decided to go ahead and get braces put on. the staff asked if they could take my children and play with them while I was getting braces put in. Right thn and there I immediately knew this was the best place to be! Truly caring and wonderful staff. I will never go anywhere else!!

The staff is so nice and helpful here! I got my rubberbands changed to white by choice and upon seeing myself in the mirror I realized this was not a good choice. I walked back into the office and they took care of me immediately and helped change my rubberbands back to clear within minutes. Amazing work! Would recommend to everyone!

INCREDIBLE DENTIST & STAFF! I called around endlessly asking if any dentist was able to take a walk in and in net work with my insurance last minute! Hallelujah Boston Dental was able to squeeze me in! I had severe pain for two days prior. I was greeted by the front desk ladies who were all smiles, and then Mr. Potter took me in the back to begin examination. He was so fantastic! Dr. Justice came in after to look everything over, he was incredibly patient with me and broke everything down so it was easy to understand and super in depth. They were not forceful in me making decisions, which I’ve had in the past. They both had GREAT senses of humor, which is always a plus! I had to remove my two bottom wisdom teeth, and it was already at the end of their day but they stayed late to get the job done! I have struggled to find a dentist, but I THANKFULLY stumbled upon this office in an emergency and I think it’s safe to say they are my full time dentist!

I have been going to Boston Dental for over 7 years now -- and will never go anywhere else!!! The front desk staff always extends a warm welcome, whether on the phone, to remind you of your upcoming appointment or in person when you arrive. I would most especially like to recognize Leticia and Elsie as primary examples of this type of service and greeting.Stephanie is fantastic in her role as well, and always does a fabulous job in polishing, flossing and preparing my teeth for a good cleaning 🙂 Thank you Stephanie!!!Vicki is the ultimate reason why I am so committed and loyal to this establishment. She is by far --- the best Dental Hygienist I have ever had work on my teeth!!!!!7I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!! Vicki is so detail-oriented, personable, professional and honest. I dont know whether she keeps great notes about your last visit and conversations --- or if she is just blessed with an impeccable memory!!! Either way, whenever I visit (which is approximately every 6 months), she refers to our last conversation like it was just yesterday!!!!! I am amazed by this during every visit and can't stop raving about this Dentist office!!!I give this establishment 10 STARS and highly recommend that if you are not this happy about the dentist office that you currently attend, you must give Boston Dental a try!!!Vicki thank you for being so fabulous and giving me a smile I can be proud of!!!!

Growing up in Washington State, I was never afraid of the dentist. I moved to Las Vegas over 10 years ago and visited a few dentists. I felt they were wreckless and didn't care. I became afraid and so did my husband and kids. We finally went to Boston Dental, where we are getting the best treatment. By far Boston Dental makes my family comfortable. The staff is amazing and it doesn't matter what we go in for we know we will be well treated and cared for. Getting my teeth deep cleaned feels like I am at a spa. My husband who has always been afraid of the dentist was able to go in and get his root canal without having to be put out. My son has gotten his braces and my daughter has no cavities! Just simply the best and right across the street from me. I recommend Boston Dental to all my family and friends!

What To Expect From Dentures or Partial Dentures

We can provide you with affordable dentures and partial dentures, and help you to get adjusted. While dentures are fitted using a model of your mouth, they may still take some time to get used to. You may feel minor soreness as the surrounding muscles get adjusted. One or more follow-up appointments with the dentist are generally needed after a denture is inserted. If any problem persists, particularly irritation or soreness, be sure to consult your dentist immediately.

Dentures are a big change, whether you have a full set or partial dentures. While you adjust, start with soft foods and take small bites. Dentures may initially affect speech, but this is easily overcome with practice. Reading out loud is a common practice to help the process.

Schedule an Appointment

Sign up as a new patient, schedule a regular cleaning, or inquire about our other dental services. We will contact you as soon as possible to confirm your appointment time.
