Missing Teeth Replacement

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.

Patient Review By Diane C

There are dentists, and then, there are dentists! DiNinno Family Dentists offers a well-run, professional business setting with highly skilled dental care, customized to the patient with exceptional expertise, and coupled with thoughtful compassion and consideration. In seeking dental care for my 87 year old father who had suffered a stroke, the choice of dentist had to be a careful one. This father/son team was the perfect choice in all respects. Dental surgery followed by the creation of a customized set of dentures took place in a modern facility, implementing current techniques, technologies and definite artistry. We highly recommend their services to anyone needing dental care, the best!

The dinino family practice was recommender to me as a second oppinion I’m so glad I took that advise. Dr. Nichols Dinino gave me both a smile and a confidence that I never had before not even before I started loosing my own teeth to health reasons. He fixed poor work done before and and gave me a natural looking smile! Thank you again Dinino family dental

Patient Review By Paula N

I had a bad experience with my first dentures and wish I had known about this family business then. My experience was nothing less than amazing! There were many challenges because of all the problems with the first from another practice. After 5 years I was still struggling because they were such a mess. The bottom over denture was the worst and I’m sure, a real challenge but it was handled with such care! My new dentures even look good in and out! If you have had bad dentures in the past, look no more, you will not be disappointed! I’m pretty amazed, really, and grateful for the whole experience. Thank you so very much!

Patient Review By Kerry C

I went to visit DiNinno Family Dental in January of this yearl I was very nervous and self-conscious of my teeth. All the staff were extremely friendly and professional and I felt immediately at ease when I arrived. Dr. DiNinno took the time at my consultation to make sure he understood all my concerns and assured me he would come up with a plan for me. His dad even came in to welcome me to the practice and I left there that day feeling that I finally found a dentist I was comfortable with and could trust. I ended up getting upper and lower partials and now I couldn't be happier with my new smile. 🙂 You have my sincere recommendation to visit DiNinno Family Dental for all your dental needs.

Not sure who to thank first, this office or the oral surgeon that recommended Dr. DiNinno . MANY bad experiences left me dreading trying another new dentist. I asked my oral surgeon and both he all of his staff recommended Dr. DiNinno. They were right. Dr. DiNinno seems to "get" why so many dentists have a bad rap and has taken strides to change that. Well done Dr. DiNinno. Great work on my tricky mouth too !! Thanks.
