Removable dentures can renew your smile and help you speak and eat with more confidence on a daily basis.

You may be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, these may either be extracted for a full denture or kept with a partial denture. At your initial consultation with Dr. Clement, he will examine your oral health and explain your options based on your budget and needs.
What To Expect
If needed, Dr. Clement will extract any remaining teeth before taking oral impressions, which will be used to customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to match your natural teeth for a seamless finish. Once your custom dentures are made, Dr. Clement will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. He will also talk to you about how to care for your new dentures.
It may require some time before your new dentures feel natural, but it should eventually be easier to eat and speak normally. If your dentures feel loose, return to Great Lakes Bay Dental to have your dentures refitted. At home, you will need to keep your dentures clean by brushing them twice daily. At night or whenever you remove your dentures, they should be soaked to prevent from drying out. Continue to schedule cleanings and exams at so Dr. Clement can examine the wear and fit of your restoration and monitor the health of your jaw and gums. He will let you know if your dentures need to be repaired or replaced. However, with ideal care, your dentures should last for several years.
If you have dental insurance, part of the cost of your dentures will usually be covered. We will contact your dental insurance to understand your benefits and out-of-pocket costs.
