Are You a Candidate for Dentures?
For numerous years, dentures were the only restorative option to replace missing teeth. With advances in dental technology, dentures are more comfortable and natural looking than ever before.
There are three types of dentures:
Our trained and experienced restorative Prescott dentists, Dr. Paul Wulff and Dr. Aaron Wulff, can discuss the options for replacing your missing or decayed teeth with a full or partial denture prosthetic. Restoring your missing teeth will restore not only your oral health but help you regain the confidence to smile and laugh again!
Why Choose Implant-Supported Dentures?
Enjoy the taste and feel of food without having your palate covered with an upper denture.
A fixed, full arch of new teeth restores your biting strength and chewing forces, so no foods are off limits.
No practice required to adjust to wearing a denture and no movement of your lower denture!
No discomfort or sores from movement because your new denture is supported by dental implants, not your gums.
Dental implants reduce the gradual bone loss of the supporting jaw structure, so your dentures will fit securely longer.
Tooth loss naturally causes the jaw bone to shrink, contributing to an aged, sunken-in look as lips and cheeks lose support.

Questions About Dentures Answered
- How do I care for my dentures?
Your removable prosthetic can be cleaned with a denture cleaner or with a regular toothbrush and toothpaste. Make sure to handle your dentures carefully and don’t expose them to hot water. Be sure to brush your gums and tongue daily.
An implant-retained denture can be brushed and flossed like your natural teeth.
You should see Dr. Wulff for regular maintenance and readjustment every six months.
- What should I do if my removable denture breaks?
You should bring your broken denture to Distinctive Dental Care as soon as possible for repair before wearing it. We can expedite the restoration of your denture at our lab, so you won’t have to go long without it.
- If I have false teeth, does that mean I don't need to see the dentist anymore?
No, you should still see your dentist regularly. A removable denture will need to be realigned or adjusted by your dentist as your jaw bone changes over time.
- How many dental implants will I need for an implant-supported denture?
Your Prescott dentist will consider your individual needs carefully when recommending any restorative treatment. You may only need two dental implants to secure a lower denture and at least four for an upper denture.
- How are false teeth made?
After all the procedures are completed to prepare your mouth for dentures, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth. A dental laboratory will use the impressions to create a custom-made set of upper and lower arches. Your dentist will make sure the fit and bite are correct, which may take multiple visits as each change needs to be processed by the lab.
