Today’s dentures are carefully designed to fit your natural existing bite.

We want you to look the same, be able to chew, talk and live your life as you did before you lost your teeth.
A complete denture is a custom made to appear like your natural teeth, designed to fit in the mouth and replace the original teeth that are lost. They are completely removable and will sometimes require you to use a dental adhesive to help hold them in place and may require adjustments from time to time to allow for a continued natural fit.
A removable partial is used when a few teeth still exist in the mouth either in the upper or lower jaw. The partial is made of a high-quality plastic or resin with false teeth attached to a gum-colored base. Its held in the mouth by clasps that attach to the surrounding or existing teeth for support, the partial close gaps and prevents shifting of the remaining teeth in the jaw. Providing you support and restoring proper function of the bite.
Implant Supported Overdenture:
An overdenture is a type of denture designed to go over the teeth or dental implants. It is attached to specialized dental attachments that are secured in the roots or implants. The attachments allow the denture to fit securely or snug in the mouth and mimic the way natural teeth are held in place. These types of dentures are best tolerated by patients because it provides stability and no need for adhesives.
Routine dental care is still essential while having a denture or partial and our team will still require you to see Dr. Mostafa Aboulkhair twice per year for your oral cleanings and cancer screening examinations to ensure your gums are in good health, remaining teeth are maintained and well taken care of and also evaluate your denture or partial to ensure that they are in good working condition.
