Dentures – Las Vegas NV
A denture or a complete denture as it is often called, is an appliance that is inserted in the mouth, replaces natural teeth and provides support for the cheeks and lips.
Most dentures are made of acrylic and can be fabricated two different ways.
- A conventional denture is made after all teeth have been extracted and the tissues (gums) have healed.
- An immediate denture is fabricated and inserted immediately after the teeth are extracted and the tissues are allowed to heal under the denture.
- An upper denture has acrylic, usually flesh colored, that covers the palate (roof of the mouth).
- A lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to leave room for the tongue.
The teeth are made of plastic, porcelain or a combination thereof. Dentures can be fabricated to fit over endodontically treated teeth and a complete denture can be attached to dental implants to allow for a more secure fit of the appliance.
Dentures over a normal course of time will wear and need to be replaced or relined in order to keep the jaw alignment normal. The alignment will slowly change as the bone and gum ridges recede or shrink due to the extraction of the teeth. Regular dental examinations are still important for the denture wearer so that the oral tissues can be checked for disease or change.

My boyfriend is currently going through the same thing I am. We both are getting full extractions of all our teeth and immediate dentures. He went to another dentist 3 weeks before I went to Tender dental. Not only have I completed the extraction I will have seen the doctor twice for post surgery follow up before he has gotten his dentures. The whole process for me has taken 7 weeks. I was involved step by step in the process of the building of the dentures, he has not even seen his yet. I made the right decision hands down going to Tender Dental. I have not one regret making the choice to go there except they do not take my children's insurance, that truly is the only thing I am mad at. I really want to thank everyone there. I will recommend you to anyone and everyone who asks.
