Dentures are a common solution for tooth loss. With recent technology, many people are considering dental implants rather than dentures. Dentures can last years, but you should visit your dentist regularly to make sure they fit properly. With time, your gums can change in shape and size, which can affect the fit and feel of your dentures.
The use of denture “glue” can help keep your dentures secure; however, overuse of denture cream or glue can be harmful to your health.
Removable partial dentures are a solution for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch. A fixed partial denture, also known as "crown and bridge," are made from crowns that are fitted on the remaining teeth to act as abutments or anchor teeth made from materials to resemble the missing teeth.

Dentca Dentures are a new and better way to make a denture. Faster, stronger, more comfortable and incredibly good looking. All of the measurements are done at the first appointment. No more coming back for multiple appointments to make sure this or that fits and the wax rims are perfectly aligned.
In as little as three appointments a well fitting denture can be made Why? Because these are the first computer designed dentures to fit only you. No more guessing about the fit. The impressions are scanned by a computer and the thousands and thousands of measurements taken on previous denture patients are all compiled into a nice computer algorithm so that when the dentures are designed the teeth are in the right position, right shape and size for you, and you alone. It is as good of as custom fit as can be. It is you.
Many times people want to have dentures with implants to support them and once they have the implants placed, not only do they have to wait months to begin the process of having the dentures made for the implants, but they also have to wait months for the dentures to be delivered. I can count 9 different appointments before the permanent dentures are delivered. With the Dentca system that number is cut in half.
Once the implants are uncovered another impression is taken and then another xray to determine, with your teeth in, the position of the implants. The next appointment the attachments to the implants are tried in and the new denture tried in as well. One more impression, and if corrections are requested by the patient, they are done at this time. The next appointment the dentures are delivered and they are attached to the implants.
A secure, immovable, lower denture, and an upper denture without the bothersome roof of the mouth. Food now tastes great again, and you are able to eat those things that you had to give up when you had your first set of dentures. The best is saved for last. If you should ever break or lose a Dentca Denture, within 48 hours another one, EXACTLY like the broken or lost denture, can be yours. No need to go through long complex appointments any more. This is truly a tremendous advancement in comfort and precision for those patients who wear dentures.
