WHY DO I NEED DENTURES?
Full dentures may be prescribed by your dentist if you have lost, or are about to lose, all of your teeth as a result of disease, decay, injury, or surgery.

Dentures are custom made in a dental laboratory from impressions taken of your mouth. With proper care and good oral hygiene, full dentures can last 5-10 years. Over a period of time your mouth naturally changes shape, dentures need to be relined, remade or rebased, which means that a new base is created utilizing the teeth on your current denture.
