Our Dentures Services

Delivering excellence in denture care means offering services that cater to every need, ensuring we have the perfect solution for everyone who walks through our doors.

Full Dentures

Full Dentures are worn by patients who are missing all teeth in either the maxillary or mandibular arch. The complete dentures cover the entire upper or lower jaw. Full dentures are made of a gum-colored base and attached false teeth. There are several types of full dentures available for you:

  1. Conventional Dentures – Conventional dentures are recommended for patients with completely healed gums. They can be put in place eight weeks after the last tooth extraction. A patient’s gum healing time can vary, and the exact time needed for the denture installation will be determined by your dentist. During this healing time, it is important to maintain proper dental hygiene and an appropriate diet to facilitate healing.
  2. Immediate Dentures – To prevent the discomfort of living without teeth, immediate dentures are an ideal option. Immediate dentures can be worn immediately after the last tooth is removed, however, the jaw modifies continuously during the healing process, so periodic adjustments will need to be made. Immediate dentures are recommended as a temporary treatment until conventional dentures can be worn.
  3. Overdentures – Dr. Forrest will try to save whatever possible from your natural teeth. Natural teeth help maintain the jawbone in good condition and provide good support for the dentures. The overdenture is designed to accommodate existing teeth. Dental implants can also be used for support.

Partial Dentures

Our partial dentures are an ideal solution for those missing one or a few teeth, acting as a bridge to restore your smile’s integrity. Unlike traditional bridges, our partial dentures are crafted with a focus on preserving your existing teeth and gum health. We offer a range of materials, including lightweight, flexible options that provide a comfortable, secure fit without compromising the health of adjacent teeth.

Denture Care and Maintenance

The care and maintenance of your dentures depend on the type of denture being used. Dr. Forrest will detail the do’s and don’ts when wearing dentures, but there are a few general rules which need to be followed by each patient:

  • Dentures need to be worn continuously in the first few weeks until the patient gets used to them. Afterward, the denture can be removed during the night for additional comfort.
  • When not in use, the dentures must be placed in a special container and fully covered with water to preserve flexibility.
  • Dentures need to be cleaned every day with a non-abrasive cleanser and a toothbrush with soft bristles.
  • Visit the dentist regularly for adjustments and routine checks on gums and remaining teeth.

Dentures can change your appearance, boost self-esteem and improve your eating experience. If you are missing teeth, visit Stephen Forrest, DDS to see if dentures in Des Moines are right for you!
