Modern Dentures Provide a Comfortable Fit and Natural Look
Advancements in restorative dentistry have made it possible to create natural, lifelike dentures to replace missing teeth. Dr. Craig Hine encourages patients with several missing teeth to consider dentures. He can help design a treatment plan at his Bixby, OK, office, incorporating custom-made prosthetics to restore form and function to your smile. There are several different denture options available, and Dr. Hine will work closely with you to choose the option that best meets your needs.

Creating Personalized Prosthetics
Dentures can help prevent the appearance of sunken cheeks due to tooth loss. You can chew, speak, and smile with comfort and confidence.
If you are receiving a denture for your top dental arch, you may have the option to choose between a hard palate or an open palate. A hard palate uses natural suction to keep it in place, eliminating the need for a denture adhesive. This type of denture, however, will cover the entire roof of your mouth and can affect your ability to taste certain foods. An open palate uses denture adhesive to remain in place. After you and Dr. Hine have decided on these various elements of your dentures, he will send the design to a dental lab for creation. Once your dentures are ready, you will return to our office so that Dr. Hine can ensure they fit properly, feel comfortable, and look natural.
Benefits of Dentures
It typically takes two weeks to fabricate your permanent restoration. When your permanent crown is ready, you will return to our office, and Dr. Hine will cement the crown in place. Dr. Hine will ensure that it feels comfortable and that it does not interfere with your bite alignment. In some cases, Hine Dental can design, create, and place same-day crowns.
