dentures1Are you missing most or all of your natural teeth? Do you wish to restore the beauty and functionality of your smile? Ask Dr. Damon T. Armstrong about dentures in Blackfoot, Idaho. A denture is a removable appliance that replaces missing teeth and the surrounding tissues. At Armstrong Dental, we offer complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the natural teeth are missing, and partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the lower or upper jaw.

We also offer implant-retained dentures, which involves anchoring your dentures on a number of dental implants. This provides a more secure restoration to minimize slipping and shifting, and many of our patients report that their implant-retained dentures feel and function more like their natural teeth. Talk to our dentist about which type of denture is right for you.

The denture making process takes several appointments and a few weeks. Once our dentist has determined which type of denture is best for you, he will take impressions of your jaw and take measurements of how your jaws relate to each other. Models in the exact shape of your future denture are made. Our dentist will have you try on these models several times so the color, shape, and fit can be assessed. Once all needed adjustments have been made, the final denture is constructed. Any final adjustments are made as needed.
