Quality Dentures in Portland
You Don’t Have to Live with Missing Teeth
If you have missing teeth or dentures that move when you eat and speak, contact Roots Dental for an evaluation so we can help you have a comfortable and reliable smile.
We create custom dentures that fit well, function reliably, and feel comfortable, allowing our patients to enjoy a wider variety of foods and increased confidence.
Complete Removable Dentures
If you are facing full mouth extractions or already have complete dentures but want something more esthetic or comfortable, we can help. We meticulously design dentures to improve our patients’ quality of life and nutritional options.
Dentures that move, fit loosely, or cause denture sores can make day-to-day life a challenge. Our dentists, Dr. Jacque Gambee or Dr. Leif Gambee, will perform a comprehensive exam to determine if traditional dentures will be a good fit for you.
Because complete dentures replace all your teeth on the upper or lower arch, we can design an esthetic smile that looks natural but also beautiful. We can help you choose a color and smile shape that complements your appearance.
Partial Dentures to Complete Your Smile
If you have retained some of your natural teeth, partial dentures can complete your smile. Partial dentures clip onto your remaining teeth with wire clasps that hold them in place.
We can design a partial denture with a metal or lightweight acrylic base, depending on what will work best for you and your lifestyle. We will match your new partial denture to your existing teeth, giving your smile a natural appearance that looks consistent all the way across.
Implant-Retained Dentures for Greater Security
For patients who have bone loss or a small palate, which can make it difficult for dentures to stay put, we offer implant-retained dentures.
We will place 4 to 6 dental implants in your upper arch, lower arch, or both in order to create a system that allows your denture to lock in place until you release it for cleaning.
Implant-retained dentures offer added confidence for many of our patients, not to mention the added comfort they provide. You can eat more foods without concern about your dentures falling, shifting, or making it difficult to chew.
Opting for implant-retained dentures often gives patients a new lease on life by allowing for an active social life and dinners with friends without the worries of a removable denture.
Caring for Your Dentures
Dentures are sturdy, but they can become damaged if you drop them. They can also become distorted if left in a hot car. You should never boil your denture. Use only a denture cleanser to clean your denture and a soft brush designed to protect the acrylic and artificial teeth from scratches.
We will thoroughly examine your denture and check the fit at each dental appointment. Since your bone structure changes with time, you may need to periodically update or reline your dentures. Weight loss or gain, tooth loss, and bone loss can all affect the fit of your denture.
