If a patient is missing most or all of their teeth, Dr. McKinley and Dr. Holloway may recommend dentures in Shelby Township, Michigan. Dentures are removable appliances that replace missing teeth and restore the beauty and functionality of your smile. Our office offers both complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the permanent teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some of the teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw.
The denture making process takes several weeks and a few appointments. After our dentists determine which type of dentures are right for you, they will make impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to each other. Using the impressions and measurements, our dentists will create models in the exact shape as your future dentures. Our dentists will have you try on these models to check the color, shape, and fit before the final denture is made. Once the models are satisfactory, the final denture is constructed and any final adjustments will be made as necessary.
