Renew Your Smile with Traditional or Implant-supported Dentures
If you are missing multiple teeth, Dr. Frank Avason III can provide attractively-crafted dentures at his Denver, NC, practice. When designing your restoration, he will consider all of your facial features to ensure that your denture resembles your natural smile. Our lab will use advanced materials for a natural color and sheen. At Avason Family Dentistry, we proudly offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures. Both types of restorations can dramatically improve your oral function and appearance. Implant-supported dentures also offer important health benefits. Dr. Avason will explain all of your options during a comprehensive consultation, and help you select the right type of dentures for your health needs, budget, and aesthetic goals.
Types of Dentures
Our full range of dentures are suitable for various restorative needs. These include:
- Traditional full dentures: A traditional full denture will replace your entire arch of teeth. Dentures can also replace both upper and lower teeth at the same time. This prosthetic will consist of a plastic base that will fit around your gums. Since it is removable, you will use denture adhesive for security.
- Teeth Tomorrow™: This option can provide a fixed restoration in just 24 hours. Dr. Avason will perform implant surgery and attach a temporary implant-supported denture the next day. Once your gums have healed, he will secure your permanent restoration, made from state-of-the-art Prettau® Zirconia.
- Traditional partial dentures: A partial is similar to a traditional full denture since it is removable and has a plastic base. However, it will replace several adjacent teeth, and small metal clips with connect it to your remaining teeth.
- Implant-supported dentures: Implant-supported dentures are a revolution in restorative dentistry. Available as both full and partial dentures, they will connect to dental implants. Dr. Avason will surgically set these posts in your jawbone, so they will remain firmly anchored. Thus, implant-supported dentures will never shift or move in the mouth.

The Benefits of Dentures
Dentures can improve virtually every aspect of your life. With your new prosthetic, it will be easier to eat, and you can once again enjoy a broad range of foods. Your speech may also be clearer. Your denture will enhance your appearance, replacing your teeth and filling in your lips and cheeks. In turn, you may feel much more confident, and your new sense of self-assurance could boost your social and professional life.
Our advanced implant-supported dentures offer further advantages. First, since they will not slip out of place, you will not usually have limits to your diet or any speech difficulties. Second, they will be remarkably natural. Similar to your original teeth, they will sit right along your gums without metal clips or a plastic base. Finally, the implant posts themselves will stimulate the growth of new bone tissue. Therefore, they can prevent jawbone degeneration, preserving the natural proportions of your face.
