When tooth loss occurs, it can affect the ability to chew, speak, and can alter the appearance of the face. Partial and complete dentures are the perfect solution.

At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, our goal is to help you maintain your oral health with high quality dental care and guidance. Below are our answers to common questions asked by those who are interested in dentures or artificial teeth.

What are the different types of dentures?

Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental can custom-make full and partial dentures. Full or complete dentures replace all natural teeth, while partial dentures only replace some of your teeth. Dentures can be made of plastic composite.

Are your dentures comfortable?

At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, we custom create and fit your dentures so they continue to be comfortable. Our process takes into account more than your mouth – we assess the shape and position of your jaw so your dentures fit comfortably, correctly, and do not slip.

Why don’t my dentures fit anymore?

Teeth are hard because of the minerals they receive from the jaw bone. When tooth loss occurs, the jaw bone directs bone growth elsewhere, causing the shape of your jaw to change. This means that you may have to visit our Albuquerque dentists from time to time to readjust your partial or complete dentures.

How often should I clean my dentures?

Dentures should be cleaned twice every day to remove food particles. First brush, then soak in a denture cleaner, then brush again.

Will anyone be able to tell that I’m wearing dentures?

At Davis Gribble Hollowwa Dental, we design your dentures to look as natural as possible. Using imprints of your natural teeth, we custom-make and fit your dentures so your smile is restored, not altered.

How do dentures affect my gums?

Gums are a sensitive tissue and can be irritated by denture use. It is important to let your gums rest and stimulate circulation. You can do this by taking your dentures out at night and gently brushing your gums.
