Posted By: Topeka Dentistry

Dentures are a practical and long-standing solution to tooth loss. And we offer various options for dentures in Topeka, including:

  • Full dentures
  • Partial dentures
  • Implant-supported dentures

And we always start you with a consultation to make sure dentures are right for you.

Dentures and Implant Dentures in Topeka, KS

Full dentures stand in for complete tooth loss, while partial dentures complete your smile when tooth loss is more sporadic. Both rely on suction, gravity, and the boney structures of the jaw for stability. However, a partial denture also depends on healthy teeth and special clips for support.

Your dentist also offers implant-retained dentures. This solution means a denture fixed to the jaw with four to six dental implants in Topeka.

This method is the perfect solution for patients who want dental implant technology but don’t want to purchase a single implant for each lost tooth. It is also ideal for denture wearers who want a more secure prosthetic.

Denture Repair

Denture repair can mean many things. In the broadest sense, it can mean anytime you bring your denture into our dental office to enhance the fit, function, or other.

For example, it can mean bringing your denture in for a reline if the prosthetic feels loose. It may mean talking to your dentist about a professional cleaning of the denture.

In other cases, you may have a crack or chip in the denture that requires attention. Repairing cracked dentures is essential because the fault can spread until the prosthetic breaks or can provide a pocket for bacteria to collect.
