Full & Partial Dentures
No matter what the circumstances, losing a tooth can be devastating. Suddenly you feel self-conscious and embarrassed, and all you want is your whole and healthy smile back.
If you're missing teeth, we create natural-looking dentures that are designed to restore your beautiful smile, allow you to chew your favorite foods easily, and maintain the best possible oral health. It’s no secret that dentures have a reputation for looking fake and obvious, but Dr. Darryl Hatchett will work with you to create fully customized dentures that are designed to fit your individual needs.
We offer two types of dentures:
Full Dentures – Also referred to as complete dentures, this type of denture is appropriate when all teeth in an upper or lower arch are missing.
Partial Dentures – If you’re only missing a few teeth, a removable partial denture is one option that can be used for the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Partial dentures are similar to other dentures but are designed to fit around the remaining natural teeth and then secured in place with clasps.
One of the most common problems associated with dentures is slipping and shifting. At Darryl Hatchett, DDS, Family Dentistry, we fashion customized dentures made to perfectly conform to the shape of your mouth, but you may be looking for an even more secure solution.
Dental implants hold a denture securely in place, and eliminate movement that causes irritation. Tiny posts are placed at strategic points along your jaw and, after the healing process is complete, the denture is attached securely to the posts. Implant-retained dentures are removable and can be taken out at night for cleaning.
No two smiles are exactly alike, and your dentures should be uniquely designed to complement your appearance. Dr. Hatchett and our dental team work with highly trained technicians to design dentures that are aesthetically and functionally customized for each patient. Throughout the process we constantly check and refine a wax model of your dentures for a secure, comfortable fit.
When you're happy with the results, we'll move on to the next stage where artificial teeth are set in the wax model, then checked again for position and color. You are part of the process every step of the way, ensuring that the final results are exactly what you expected, maybe even better! You may be surprised to discover just how comfortable and easy dentures are to wear are when they're crafted to your exact specifications!
