Complete Dentures

Prosthodontics is the dental specialty that involves the replacement and reconstruction of teeth.  In addition to implants and cosmetic dentistry, this includes high quality Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures, including "precision attachment partials", where the clasps (clips) are totally hidden.

Complete Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.  Complete dentures or full dentures are worn by patients who are missing all of the teeth in a single arch (i.e. the maxillary (upper) or mandibular (lower) arch). Conventional denture is removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.  At Blossoming Smiles, our Complete Dentures, (both upper and lower), are custom made by our own Dental Design Studio. To insure proper fit, bite and looks, it is often necessary to try in mockups before proceeding with the final denture. Customizing and attention to detail is much more easily controlled in this way. Also, turnaround time can be in a

We provide our patients with dentures that are made utilizing the new, European injection molded technique called "Ivocap". The advantages of this technique are:

  • Far less distortion occurs when the denture is processed from wax to acrylic.
  • There is never any left-over chemical residue with the process, as can happen in conventional dentures. These residues can cause chronic tissue irritation.
  • Higher strength.

Partial Dentures

Removable partial dentures are for patients who are missing some of their teeth on a particular arch.  We offer both: Conventional Partial Dentures as well as "Hidden Clasp" or “Claspless” Partials:

  • For the pink acrylic portions of your partial, we use the Ivocap process, mentioned above.
  • We are highly experienced at creating "hidden clasp", or precision, partials. “They are really cool, because when you look in the mirror, you often cannot see where your real teeth end and where the partial denture begins!”
  • If you choose to have regular clasps, we usually use Softer, Yellow Gold Clasps or Conventional Chromium-Cobalt clasps which are gentler on your teeth, and are more adjustable without risk of breakage. The following are two examples of the Conventional Clasp vs. the “Hidden Clasp” Partial Dentures:
