Partial and Full-Arch Denture Solutions
Living with missing teeth doesn’t just interfere with eating and speaking — it can also leave you feeling less confident and hesitant to pursue social and professional goals.

Dentures are a reliable tooth replacement option for those who need some or all of their teeth restored. We can create both partial and full dentures, ensuring that anyone suffering from tooth loss can find an appropriate solution for their needs. Discover how customized dentures could have you sharing your smile and finding more enjoyment in life.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Khan will discuss different tooth replacement options with you. We always want you to feel confident that the treatment you select will fulfill your expectations and provide optimal results. We’ll take things step by step so you know exactly how your treatment will proceed from the beginning.
When deciding whether dentures are the right choice for you, we’ll look at different factors to assess your candidacy. These factors might include:
- You have sufficient healthy gum and jawbone tissue to support dentures
- You’ll be assisted in eating and speaking by a denture restoration
- You’re seeking an affordable treatment that lasts for years
- You want a comfortable, easy-to-maintain tooth replacement solution
Types of Dentures
Different types of dentures are available to meet the unique needs of our patients. In general, these are divided into complete and partial dentures.
A complete or full-arch denture replaces an upper or lower arch of teeth. They’re generally recommended for patients missing most or all of the teeth on the upper or lower arch. If you have a small amount of remaining natural teeth, it may be in your best interest to have them painlessly extracted so that you can be fit for a reliable set of prosthetic dentures. Complete dentures help preserve the shape of your face and return the function of a full set of teeth, allowing you to enjoy more types of food and speak more clearly.
A partial denture is used to replace individual teeth or a section of teeth in an otherwise healthy upper or lower arch. Partial dentures are customized to fit comfortably with your other teeth, providing the essential structural support to preserve your alignment. Partial dentures can be helpful to restore the function and appearance of your smile, often making it more comfortable to eat and speak along with bolstering your confidence.
Taking Care of Your Prosthetics
Once you’ve received your dentures, you’ll need to take steps to preserve them and ensure they last for years. Dr. Khan will provide you with tips on how to maintain your denture prosthesis. Some general recommendations for healthy, sanitary dentures are as follows:
- Remove your dentures every night and brush them with a non-abrasive denture toothpaste.
- Use a soft-bristled toothbrush to clean all surfaces of your mouth and dentures to avoid damaging the plastic.
- Store your dentures each night in water or a mild denture solution.
- Rinse them again before placing your dentures back in your mouth.
- Rinse your dentures after eating to remove food particles.
- Avoid using regular toothpaste, hot water, or bleach-based products on dentures, as this can alter their appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dentures might feel a bit different when you first begin wearing them, but they’ll fit comfortably and precisely over your gums. With continued wear, you’ll adjust to the feeling of wearing your dentures.

As long as your dentures are securely fitted and are cared for properly, then they shouldn’t cause dry mouth. If you suffer from dry mouth already, adjusting to dentures may be difficult as they require saliva to adhere to your gums.
If this is the case for you, Dr. Khan might recommend another tooth replacement solution. This can be further discussed during your initial consultation.
