Dentures to Improve Your Smile from Trinity Dental
At Trinity Dental Centers, we ensure your dentures will be natural looking, comfortable, and will help improve your appearance and smile.
Dentures are removable devices for missing teeth and surrounding tissues that can be taken out and put back in your mouth. While there is an adjustment period where you get used to them, Trinity Dental Centers provides natural-looking, comfortable options to help support and improve your smile.
Depending on whether you need some or all of your teeth replaced, your Trinity Dental dentist will help you decide the best option regarding full or partial dentures.
Made after the teeth have been removed and the gum tissue begins healing, a full denture is ready for installation in the mouth around two to three months after the teeth have been removed. A partial denture is usually made of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which is attached to a metal structure that holds the device in place in the mouth. They are typically used when one or more natural teeth exist in the upper or lower jaw area.
How long will it take to adjust?
Any prosthetic device can feel uncomfortable during the first few weeks or months. Eating certain foods and speaking may take a bit of practice. You may also experience increased saliva production or mouth sores. Our Trinity Dental team is with you every step of the way to ensure you are comfortable and adjusting to your new prosthetics. Patience and wearing them regularly will also help the muscles of your cheeks and tongue to hold them in place and allow your mouth to get used to their new helpers.
At Trinity Dental Centers, we are committed to restoring your teeth to a beautiful and functioning state. Our full and partial dentures are both excellent options that can get you to the smile of your dreams!

How do I take care of my dentures?
- When handling your dentures, hold them over a folded towel so they have a soft landing if they fall. They are delicate and can break if they fall on a hard surface.
- Always keep them in water or cleaning solution so that they do not dry out. Never place them in hot water, as this will cause shape change.
- Brush them daily to prevent food buildup, staining, and plaque from occurring.
- Visit your Trinity Dental dentist if they feel loose. Do not attempt to fix or bend your prosthetics as they can chip, crack, or break without professional dental handling.
