A fit that keeps you smiling.
Complete dentures are an affordable solution for people who have no remaining natural teeth. Complete upper dentures use suction to stay in place, by creating a seal with the tissue. When the underlying bone and tissue changes, this seal may be affected and will cause your upper denture to become loose. Complete lower dentures may create a seal with the tissue, but because of the shape of the lower jaw they usually rely on stability and training of the muscles of the face to stay in place. Because of this, it can take time to adjust to a new complete lower denture. After being fit for a new complete denture, it is common to develop denture "sore spots." These sore spots can easily be adjusted by your denturist to alleviate the pressure put on the tissue by your new denture.

With specific variations in shape and countours fuller lip support will make your teeth look and feel natural. There are over forty considerations in making a precision denture that is right for you.
