Dentures: Complete & Partial | Dentures in Lewiston, ME | Restorative Dentist Near Me

The technology behind dentures has greatly accelerated, adding more comfort and making them more effective in recent years. 

When it comes down to what to do about missing teeth, dentures are very positive in that they can be removed, whether a complete or partial set. Partial dentures can replace multiple missing teeth while leaving healthy natural teeth. A complete set of dentures fills in your complete smile, and is an excellent option when called for.

Is Getting Dentures A Long Process?

A conventional set of complete dentures are created and installed once teeth are removed and the gums have begun to heal. These can be placed in the mouth as early as 2-3 months after the natural teeth are removed.

Partial dentures can be removed, and you might hear them referred to as a dental bridge. Usually, partial dentures involve the replacement of some, not all. Attached to a gum-like base and connected by a custom-made metal framework, well-constructed dentures hold their position in the mouth. Partial dentures can also take much less time to install than complete dentures. 

Dentures: Helpful Denture Decision-Making Facts:

  • Dental implants and bridges may be used instead of dentures.
  • Dental implants and bridges may be used to support partial dentures.
  • Many dental insurance companies cover dentures. We can work with you to find out about your specific situation.
  • New dentures will take a few weeks to be completely comfortable and fitted in your mouth.
  • The goal is for your dentures to look the same as your natural teeth, often even better.
  • Eating with new dentures can be a learning experience, but you and your mouth will adjust to your new dentures quickly.
    Dentures may affect speech and pronunciation, but with time this will fade.
  • Most dentures are worn nearly all the time at first, then less over time as your mouth and gums adjust.
  • The creation and installation of highly personalized dentures usually necessitates multiple appointments over time to complete this tooth restoration process.

5/5
I had an unfortunate event (broken tooth) and a co-worker recommended Aspire. I couldn't be happier with the experience I have had - from the wonderful receptionist, amazing hygienist and ultimately Dr. Lee's mannerisms!! Everyone was so helpful, pleasant and understanding. They were able to get me right in and fix my tooth the same day!! Would recommend to anyone looking for a comforting staff that makes you feel safe in these crazy times!

"I was seen promptly and quickly put at ease with the Dr's kind gentle manner. Let's face it.....no one likes having to go to the dentist right? It was a great experience, no pressure and I was given "options" which really made me feel in control......I really appreciated that. With state of the art equipment, a clean professional office and excellent staff (thanks Linda!") I would HIGHLY recommend this office."

I always have the best experience at Aspire Family Dentistry, they all truly care for their patients at the highest level. All of the hygienists are super friendly, and very good at what they do. Dr. Lee always lightens the mood with chit chat and jokes - not to mention he is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of being a customer of. Also, I think the addition of the Television and the screen that shows the x-rays of your teeth is awesome! 10/10. Would recommend to everyone!
