Types of Dentures
Our practice offers a range of denture options to suit your unique needs:
Complete dentures. This solution is ideal if you've lost all your natural teeth. Complete dentures are custom-made to fit your mouth comfortably, providing a natural appearance and restoring your ability to speak and eat confidently.
Partial dentures. When you're missing some of your natural teeth, partial dentures can bridge the gap beautifully. These removable appliances blend seamlessly with your remaining teeth, improving both function and esthetics.
Implant-supported dentures. For added stability and comfort, we offer implant-supported dentures. Dental implants are anchors to secure your dentures, eliminating slipping and enhancing chewing efficiency.
Because no two mouths are the same, we can make custom dentures to meet your individual needs.
Removable Vs. Fixed Dentures
The choice between removable and fixed dentures depends on your preferences and oral health. Removable dentures are easy to clean and maintain, whereas fixed dentures offer a more permanent solution with added stability.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions about dentures.
Q. Do dentures hurt?
A. No, dentures shouldn’t cause pain. Although you may have some initial discomfort or soreness as you get used to them, it should subside over time. Regular check-ups with our team can help ensure a comfortable fit.
Q. Can you sleep with dentures in?
A. It's generally recommended to remove your dentures at night to allow your gums to rest and to clean the dentures properly. Sleeping with dentures in can increase the risk of gum irritation and infection.
Q. How long do dentures last?
A. The lifespan of dentures can vary, but with proper care and maintenance, they typically last five-seven years or longer. Over time, the fit may change, requiring adjustments or replacement.

A beautiful smile
Kathleen’s story is rather unique. She suffered a stroke in February 2011 and had to concentrate on pressing health concerns, which limited her ability to look after her oral health. When she first came to us, her fears of having all of her teeth pulled were quickly put to rest: we set up a plan that focused on properly caring for and supporting her existing teeth. She made her teeth a priority, and it payed off in the shape of a beautiful smile. All it took was the courage to make her first appointment, which she did on her own.
“I came to Dr. Crapo to see if I could save my teeth, and get my smile back basically. My job requires me to be in front of people, and speaking. So obviously… I was worried about my presentation… [The team has been] very helpful. They take care of you, right from the hygienists to the billing service: dealing with your benefits carrier. I wanted to get my smile back… I think I got my smile back!”
