Are immediate dentures right for me?

Have you lost your teeth as a result of an illness, injury, or prolonged decay? Do you need full dentures? If so, immediate dentures might be the right choice for you. Immediate dentures can be placed quickly, meaning you don't have to live without teeth for any period. One thing to consider, however, is that immediate dentures need to be regularly relined. Relining helps ensure a comfortable, precise fit as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and the transition to dentures.

Are partial dentures a better choice for me?

Schedule a free consultation at Key City Dental Studio to find out if partial dentures are a match for your dental needs. Unlike full dentures, which replace all of your natural teeth, partial dentures only replace missing teeth.

Dr. Key measures your jaw and makes models of your mouth. Dr. Key sends these models to a dental lab so that they can construct your dentures. No dental adhesives are required. The metal frame anchors to existing natural teeth to keep the dentures in place.

Acrylic partial dentures are another option. On the one hand, they tend to be cheaper than metal partials, but on the other hand, they don't last as long. They're often used as transitional dentures, a short-term solution for replacing front teeth while Dr. Key constructs permanent bridges or partial dentures.
