If you are missing teeth, dentures can provide you with a positive solution to improving your oral health. We are proud to provide custom-made dentures designed to fit specifically in your mouth for proper function, support, and comfort.
Following your appointment, we will provide you with information concerning the at-home care needed for your dentures. We strongly recommend that patients schedule follow-up appointments for periodic professional dental cleanings.
For more information about dentures or to schedule an appointment, please contact our office today at (503) 640-2312.
If you are looking for a full bottom or top replacement solution for missing teeth, then a full set of dentures may be an excellent option for you. Dentures are attached to a gum-colored base, held in place with either suction or an adhesive, and can replace a whole arch of missing natural teeth.
While they are more cost-effective and less invasive than dental implants, full dentures require frequent, lifetime upkeep and maintenance. Because these dentures are completely removable and rest on your gums, they need to be frequently cleaned, just like your natural teeth. By cleaning your dentures regularly, you keep your gums healthy and your dentures looking as good as new.
Once these specifics are determined, the molds are sent to a dental lab which creates a mock-up pair of dentures for you. During a fitting appointment with our team, we will have you test out the mock-up to check how it fits, looks, and feels in your mouth. This is the time you and our team will make adjustments to the fit of the denture or color of the teeth before sending the mock-ups back to the lab for final production. It’s important to note that your absolute honesty is needed as your feedback shapes the final dentures you will receive.
After the final changes are made to the mock-up, the lab will custom build your dentures. After we receive the final design, your last fitting session will be to make small adjustments for comfort, bite, or fit which are all made in-house by our team.
At Cain Denture Centers, we are dedicated to providing best-in-class dental services such as dentures to ensure your oral hygiene and smile are the best they can be.
A partial denture is an optimal solution for patients who may be missing one or more teeth in a particular area of their mouth. Removable partial dentures are attached to a gum-colored base which may have a metal framework that helps to hold it in place against the surrounding teeth. These dentures serve to replace missing teeth, restore functionality, and generally improve oral health. When a tooth is lost, and the gap isn’t immediately filled, it can lead to the neighboring teeth to shift; this can create a significant change in your bite and can even cause long-term damage to your gums and jaw bone.
Removable partial dentures are a less invasive method to replace and restore missing teeth than alternative solutions. While they are more cost-effective and less invasive than implants, removable partial dentures require frequent, lifetime upkeep and maintenance. Because these partial dentures are removable and essentially rest on your gums, they need to be frequently cleaned, just like your natural teeth. By cleaning your dentures regularly, you keep your gums healthy and your dentures looking as good as new.
To begin treatment, we will determine if removable partial dentures are the best option for you. Factors such as oral hygiene, the location of the missing tooth gap(s), bone strength, and long-term viability for dentures all determine your treatment plan. Our team will start by taking dental impressions of your teeth which will serve as the mold used to create your dentures. Next, we will review the size, shape, and coloring of each replacement tooth to recreate your natural smile. Once these are determined, we send the molds to a dental lab which creates a mock-up partial denture for you.
During a fitting appointment with our team, we will have you test out the mock-ups to check how they fit, look, and feel in your mouth. This is the time you and our team will make adjustments to the fit or color of the teeth before sending the mock-ups back to the lab for alterations. Remember, your absolute honesty is needed as your feedback shapes the final removable partial denture you will be receiving. Once the final changes have been made to the mock-up, the lab will custom build your dentures. After we receive the final design, your last fitting session will be to make small adjustments for comfort, bite, or fit which can all be made in-house by our team.

Here at Cain Denture Centers, we are proud to offer denture relines for our patients. Denture relines are done to ensure your dentures continue to fit properly.
Over time your mouth changes. The bone and tissue change shape, especially when you lose teeth. This means your dentures will not always fit comfortably. They may pinch and cause sores. Dentures that don’t fit can also wear down the bones and soft tissue in your mouth. They can cause more damage if you don’t have them regularly examined and adjusted (if needed). You may get infections and periodontal disease more easily with ill-fitting dentures.
When we do denture relines, we resurface the side of your dentures that comes in contact with your gums. This is done so you don’t get any sores in your mouth, which can be painful and are definitely unnecessary. We want you to be proud of your smile while still being quite comfortable!
Here at Cain Denture Centers, we are proud to offer denture repairs to our patients. Dentures can be expensive, and they are made to last. However, accidents happen, and your dentures may get broken. This can be devastating!
For this reason, we are excited to be able to repair dentures. We have the ability to repair both partial and full dentures. Partial dentures can often be reinforced with metal or fiber mesh to give them the support they need to stay together.
Sometimes a denture repair is not so simple. We will do everything we can do to repair your dentures so you don’t have to buy new ones. Even if your dentures break in half (or more pieces), we are dedicated to repairing your dentures.
We also offer both conventional and immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are made prior to removing your teeth while conventional dentures are made afterward. Then it takes eight to twelve weeks to get them.
It is our goal to make the process go as smoothly as possible. We will discuss your options, and together we can decide the best way to proceed.
If you have any questions about dentures or would like to schedule an examination to see if you could benefit from them, feel free to contact us today at (503) 640-2312.
