Dentures | Groves Dental Care

A denture is a prosthesis that stands in for tooth loss or following full mouth extractions. In our Loxahatchee, FL dental office, we make sure your prosthesis or denture looks natural and fits your mouth appropriately.

If you’re considering dentures, we use nothing but the best materials at Groves Dental Care, and we keep you relaxed and comfortable throughout the denture process.

Yes, we understand that getting dentures can be scary, but once you know the facts and dismiss the myths, you discover that dentures are an excellent choice when it comes to tooth loss.

Let’s clear up the myths or rumors surrounding dentures that simply aren’t true.

Myth #1 Your Dentures Will Not Look Natural

The myth is that everyone will know you’re wearing a denture. This is simply not true. The reality is that you have probably spoken to several people in the last month that wore dentures and you did not even know it!

Myth #2 Your Denture Will Not Fit Comfortably

At Groves Dental Care, your denture is designed to fit your mouth. If you experience denture slippage in the future, this is due to jaw shrinkage. You may be due for a realignment of your denture, or it may be time for a new denture.

Myth #3 You Will Have to Go Without Teeth

In our Loxahatchee, FL dental office, you can be fitted with a temporary and natural-looking denture while we create your custom denture. This temporary or immediate denture can be placed following extractions, acting as a kind of bandage.

Myth #4 Your Denture Will Not Be Stable

Yes, a few strategically placed dental implant posts make your denture a more permanent part of your mouth, eliminating slippage.
