Are You Tired Of Eating Only The Foods You Can, Not The Foods You Want?

Too often this question is answered with a resounding “Yes”, both by denture wearers and those with missing natural teeth. In addition, there is frequently a lack of confidence and a great deal of embarrassment due to missing natural
teeth, broken and ill-fitting dentures and the inability to eat certain foods.
The limited food choices available for those unable to chew properly includes overly processed foods with inadequate nutritional value and very few manageable options for fruits, vegetables and proteins like meat or nuts.
A restrictive diet results in poor nutrition which can lead to a multitude of health issues – including heartburn, acid reflux, obesity, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal issues and more – which can significantly affect the quality of your life. The solution to your chewing dilemma is easier to solve than you might think. Our clinic specializes in the design, fabrication, fitting and adjustment of complete and removable partial dentures, as well as overdentures on implants. Referrals are not required, and most of our fees are covered by dental plans.
Because most laboratory work is performed on the premises, the quality of care is customized and personal.
We can improve your oral health, which impacts your overall health, as well as your smile, by providing denture solutions.
