Should I get immediate dentures?

You might be a prime candidate for immediate dentures if you've lost your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, and need full dentures.

Immediate dentures offer you the benefit and convenience of never having to be without teeth. One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined.

Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Are partial dentures the right choice for me?

Visit Hyun S. Bang, DDS, for a free consultation and to see if immediate dentures are the best fit for your dental needs. Partials dentures are different than full.

Full dentures replace all of your natural teeth while partial dentures only replace your missing teeth. The strong metal framework offers support so that you can bite and eat like normal, even if you're missing molars.

Partial dentures with metal frames do not need dental adhesives to stay in place. They have clasps that securely anchor to existing teeth.

A more cost-effective alternative is acrylic partial dentures. They tend to be cheaper than partials with metal frames, but they also need to be replaced more often.

They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while the dentist constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.

What if I need denture repairs?

The licensed denturists at Hyun S. Bang, DDS, can repair full or partial custom dentures while you wait or in a few hours, depending on the repairs needed. Denture repairs are completed on-site.
