Full and Partial Dentures — An Affordable Way to Restore Your Smile

At Eastport Dental, Dr. Huynh and his team offer a range of options to help our Mesa, AZ, patients regain their smiles. Tooth loss affects more than just your appearance. It can impact your ability to eat, speak, and even your self-confidence. Dentures are an affordable solution that can restore both function and the appearance of your smile.

Why Choose Dentures in Mesa, AZ?

Dentures are artificial teeth and gums that replace lost or removed natural teeth. They can be full (replacing all teeth on the top or bottom gum line) or partial (only filling the spaces left by missing teeth). Whether due to age, disease, or injury, dentures can restore your smile and oral function if you’ve lost some or all of your natural teeth.

Benefits of Dentures

One of the reasons dentures are so popular is because of the numerous benefits they offer:

Restored Function: Dentures provide a remarkable solution to restore your ability to chew and speak effectively. Dentures enable you to enjoy your favorite foods and engage in conversations without worry.


Improved Appearance: Dentures fill out your facial structure, and they also have the power to transform your overall appearance and make your smile look great. The result is a natural, healthy look that can boost your self-esteem and leave a lasting impression.

Durability: With proper care and maintenance, dentures are built to last for many years and ensure a long-lasting solution for your tooth replacement needs. This durability gives you peace of mind; you’ll always know that your dentures will serve you well for years to come.

Cost-Effective: Compared to other tooth replacement methods, dentures stand out as an affordable option that doesn’t compromise on quality. Their cost-effectiveness makes dentures accessible to a broader range of patients and makes it easier for patients to regain their oral functionality and confidence without breaking the bank.

Getting Dentures — The Process

The process of getting dentures involves several appointments over a span of a few weeks. Initially, Dr. Huynh will comprehensively examine your oral health and discuss suitable denture options based on your specific needs and preferences.

Next, precise impressions (molds) of your mouth will be taken, and measurements of how your jaws relate to one another and the space between them will be recorded. These will serve as a blueprint for your custom-made dentures.

Then, you’ll try on the basic shape and color dentures to ensure a perfect fit. Adjustments will be made for color, shape, and fit before the final denture is cast and finalized.

Finally, you will receive your completed dentures and instructions on their maintenance. Follow-up appointments will be scheduled, as needed, to adjust the fit and ensure your comfort and satisfaction.

Types of Dentures at Eastport Dental

At Eastport Dental, we offer two main types of dentures: full dentures and partial dentures. Our team will work closely with you to determine which type of denture is best for your unique situation and needs.

Full Dentures

Full dentures are used when all the teeth are missing. They consist of a flesh-colored acrylic base that fits over your gums. The base of the upper denture covers the palate, while the lower denture is shaped like a horseshoe to accommodate your tongue.

Partial Dentures

Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw. They consist of replacement teeth attached to a gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by a metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth.
