What Are Dentures?

Denver Dentures and Implants | Dentures

For those who are seeking the most affordable smile replacement option or who are not candidates for dental implants, conventional dentures can provide a better quality of life.

With our in-house lab, we can offer our patients the lowest prices and, in some cases, same day denture services.

How can we make our dentures so affordable?

At Denver Dentures and Implants, we have a denture lab on-site! This allows us to eliminate the need to use an outside denture lab and their higher prices. Many competing dental offices often charge 2-4 times as much as our office. Not to mention they often take weeks or even months to get the dentures when we can do it all in just one day. We also have more experience than other practices because we limit our services to dentures and implants.

Our dentures begin as low as $1,549. Schedule a free consult today to get started on your new smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are immediate dentures?

As the name implies, immediate dentures are dentures which are placed immediately after the natural teeth are taken out. They help control swelling and bleeding; they act like bandages over your extraction sites.

What process should I expect when getting immediate dentures?

The complete process usually takes 6 months, but may take longer for some patients.

  • Impressions are taken prior to the procedure with your natural teeth still present. From these impressions, the dentures are made.
  • Procedure – your teeth are extracted and the new teeth are placed.
  • Series of soft liners (soft re-fittings) over 6 month healing period.
  • Final re-fit (processed hard reline) at end of 6 month healing period.

What is it like to get used to the new dentures?

This experience will be different for each patient, but it does require patience and practice. Your mouth will be going through significant changes over the 6 month healing period. Remember, it does get easier over time and we are here for you throughout the process.

Some dentures look very fake. Will mine look like that?

Absolutely not. One of the common fears patients have is that the dentures will not look natural and people will immediately know they're dentures. Our highly skilled lab team will make sure you don't end up with "horse teeth" or "chiclets," just beautiful, natural-looking teeth. No one will know.

How do dentures fit?

The fit of dentures mostly depends on the anatomy of the person wearing them. Full upper dentures usually fit rather well, acting like a suction cup against the roof of the mouth. Full bottom dentures tend to feel loose and have an inclination to "float" in your mouth since your tongue and cheeks are constantly working to dislodge them. It is for this reason that we highly recommend dental implants with bottom dentures.

How will I chew with the new dentures?

Cut your food up into small pieces, chew small bites, and chew with food on both sides of your mouth to even out your bite.

I can’t taste as much with these dentures. Is this common?

Yes, the palate of the full top denture covers the taste buds on the roof of the mouth reducing the taste sensitivity.

My lower denture is difficult to function with. Is this normal?

Yes, lower dentures are more difficult to function with than top dentures. The tongue and cheeks moving push and pull on the lower denture and dislodge it. Talk with your doctor to see if you’re a candidate for lower implants. These help tremendously with lower denture fit and function.

My dentures feel like they’re becoming loose?

This is common with immediate dentures. Your jaws and gums will shrink down after extractions. This leaves space between your dentures and gums. We place soft liners in your dentures to fill in this extra space. This should help them fit and feel better as you heal.

What are denture adjustments and how often are they needed?

New dentures can have certain spots that rub slightly and can cause sore spots. During the denture adjustment, we will pinpoint the spot(s) on your denture that are irritating you, decrease the amount of pressure they put on the gums, and smooth them thoroughly. This is completely normal with all new dentures and one or more adjustments should be expected.

Will I be charged for denture adjustments?

We provide denture adjustments at no charge for the first 6 months after receiving your final teeth or permanent hard reline. After this time, there is a small fee to adjust your dentures.

How do I care for my dentures?

  • Clean your dentures daily with antibacterial hand soap and either a denture brush or a very soft bristled tooth brush
  • Store them in water when not wearing them

What should I use to clean the dentures?

  • Either antibacterial hand soap or denture cleaner and either a denture brush or a very soft bristled tooth brush. Scrub them at least once a day
  • Soak them in a denture cleanser (optional)
  • Ultrasonic cleaner

Should I take my dentures out before bed?

Yes, we do recommend taking your dentures out when you sleep and also whenever you can throughout the day. This gives your gums time to "relax" and get natural, cleansing saliva flow to them. Also, if you're a teeth grinder, taking your dentures out will help you increase their usable life significantly.

Can I boil my dentures to clean them?

No! Do not boil the dentures to clean them. The heat can warp them. If this happens, you will have to replace them.

Can the dentures get damaged?

Yes, your dentures are made from an acrylic base and acrylic teeth. Although these materials are very strong, they can be damaged. Be careful to not drop your dentures, especially onto hard surfaces like porcelain sinks, tile floors, etc.

One of the most common ways dentures can be damaged beyond repair is when a dog (or sometimes cat) gets ahold of them. Animals and pets love to chew on dentures and can often damage them irreparably quite fast. Be extra careful to put your dentures up where your pet can’t get to them.

If the dentures get damaged, can they be repaired?

Yes, in many cases they can. One of the great features of acrylic dentures is the ease and affordability of repair compared to other materials. And in most cases, repairs are be completed the same day.

Can I expect pain after this procedure?

Though experiences will vary some, you should expect mild discomfort and some swelling afterwards. Many patients return the next day for their follow-up appointment reporting very little discomfort. You will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort.

Why am I salivating (drooling) so much?

Excess saliva is perfectly normal when you first have a prosthesis placed in your mouth. Your mouth senses it as foreign material and is trying to “flush” it out. The increased salivation should decrease within 2-3 days.

Can I be put to sleep for my procedure?

We do not currently put patients to sleep, we do, however, offer both oral & IV conscious sedatives. To learn more about these options click here. The medication will help relax you and often makes it so you don’t even remember the procedure. For this, we write you a prescription, and you can fill it at your local pharmacy. NOTE: You MUST have a driver to and from for your procedure, because of the sedation medication. You MUST NOT operate a motor vehicle or any machinery after taking your medication.

What are full dentures?

Full dentures are dentures that replace all of your natural teeth in either the upper arch, lower arch, or both.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are dentures that replace some of your missing teeth in an arch. They typically attach to the surrounding, natural teeth for stability and support.

What advantages can I expect from dentures?

  • Improved confidence | Great looks with your new smile.
  • Looks | Dentures provide great looks and are easily customized for each individual.
  • Facial support | Dentures help to fill back out areas of the face that have sunken in following tooth loss.
  • Improved nutrition | Better chewing leads to better digestion and improved nutrition.
  • Affordability | Dentures are the most cost-effective way to replace a full arch (upper or lower) or an entire mouth of teeth.
  • Improved quality of life

What are the differences in your denture levels?

Our dentures offer improved wear resistance, better stain resistance, and longer warranties as you go up in levels.

Will I know how to eat with my dentures right away?

Just like you would need practice in order to become used to functioning with a prosthetic leg, it will require some patience and practice to get used to the new teeth. Patience and practice are the keys to improving with your new dentures as quickly as possible.

Will I automatically know how to talk with my prosthetic teeth right away?

Again, this will take a little time, but with some practice and patience, your mouth and tongue will quickly adjust. "S’s" will be the trickiest to pronounce. Practicing saying words like "sarcastic" and "stupendous" can help you get accustomed to your new teeth. In some cases, patients may have a small lisp long-term with dentures.

Can food get beneath my dentures(s)?

Yes, any prosthetic in your mouth will get some amount of food under it. The convenient thing about dentures is how easy it is to clean them. Just remove them; clean the denture(s) and your gums; and put them back in.

How much time should I take off work to recover after my extractions?

Generally 4-7 days is enough time for recovery. With that said, as there is always the chance of bruising and swelling, and you will need to get used to eating and speaking with your dentures, the more time you can take off, the better.

What is a soft liner?

A soft liner is a cushion that is placed in your denture through your healing process. It fills in the spaces that are created as you heal helping your dentures to fit and feel better.

Am I too young for dentures?

No, this is not just a procedure for seniors. It’s actually very common for people in their 40s, 30s, even 20s to need their teeth replaced. Replacing bad teeth can be very beneficial to your long-term physical health, and being able to speak, smile, and laugh confidently with teeth you can be of can benefit your psychological health.

What items should I have ready for after my procedure?

  • ice packs
  • wash cloths you don’t mind throwing away
  • comfortable clothes you don’t mind throwing away
  • soft foods such as:
  • soups
  • yogurt
  • cottage cheese
  • smoothies
  • protein shakes
  • eggs
  • mashed potatoes (gravy optional)

Can I have the palate (middle part that covers roof of your mouth) removed from my denture?

The majority of the palate of the denture needs to stay. Removing this also removes a lot of stability and almost all of your natural suction. A portion of the palate can sometimes be removed for patients who have denture implants.

What are tori? Do they need to be removed?

Tori are bony knots that develop in the mouth of many patients. They are not harmful, however, they can prevent your denture(s) from fitting comfortably, so your doctor will often recommend having them removed.

How long can I expect to bleed after surgery?

Significant bleeding will stop before you leave the clinic, however, expect to have some bleeding (oozing) for a few days after the procedure. In addition, you will most likely have increased salivation when we first put your temporary teeth in. When this extra saliva mixes with a small amount of blood, it can look like more blood than it is. If heavy bleeding continues, please call our office.

A home remedy which still works really well to help clotting and reduce bleeding is to use tea bags. Just get a standard tea bag, get it damp, squeeze out the extra water, place it on the extraction site (or sites), and the tea will help you clot. Multiple tea bags can be used if needed. Replace the tea bags if they become saturated with blood. The process can be repeated as many times as needed.

My dentures are making my gums sore, what can I do for this?

There are several reasons that can lead to sore gums: higher pressure spots, movement of your denture(s), and just plain old wearing of the dentures.

  • High pressure spots | these are common with new dentures and typically only require small adjustments
  • Movement of the denture(s) | this can rub sores on your gums gradually. Securing the dentures with implants can greatly reduce this issue.
  • Wearing dentures | dentures are foreign to your body. They can be a fantastic substitution for missing teeth, but they can still irritate the body after a long day. Consider scheduling time to remove your dentures and give your gum tissue a chance to "rest."

Will my dentures rock?

Yes, it is possible. Dental implants can provide the stability needed with dentures alone. Click here for more info.

Denture adhesive may also be beneficial for some patients.

I don't like having something covering the roof of my mouth. What are my options?

Dental implants often provide the stability you want. Click here for more info.

Can I remove immediate dentures?

Yes, they can be removed. They come in and out of the mouth and are kept secure either through natural suction for the upper or denture adhesive. Not everyone will have natural suction with their upper denture for a number of reasons (palatal torus, flat palate, bone loss, etc.)
