Should I get immediate dentures?

If you’ve lost your teeth as a result of illness, decay, or injury, and need full dentures, you may be a good candidate for immediate dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. Keep in mind, though, that immediate dentures do not have a "try on" period and can take some time to feel normal. They need to be regularly relined to ensure a continued, comfortable fit.

Are partial dentures the right choice for me?

Schedule a free consultation at Robert A Kravecs Jr, DMD, LLC to find out if immediate dentures are a match for your dental needs. Unlike full dentures, partials are meant to replace a few missing teeth, not all of your natural teeth. The metal framework provides strong support and helps with chewing when you are missing back teeth. Partial dentures with metal frames securely anchor to your existing teeth and stay in place without the use of dental adhesives.

Acrylic partial dentures are a less expensive option for tooth replacement; however, they're also less durable than metal ones. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.

What if I need denture repairs?

At Robert A. Kravecs Jr, DMD, LLC, Dr. Kravecs can repair custom dentures in a matter of hours, sometimes while you wait, depending on the type of repair needed. Denture repairs take place on-site.
