Dentures

For the quality of life you deserve

Dr. Smilovits has over two decades of experience placing dentures. If you have lost your teeth or are in danger of losing them, he can help you examine your choices and choose the type of dentures best for your mouth and your lifestyle.

He provides a No-Charge Consultation, which you can read more about below. He can also give you a second opinion if you have been told you need dentures or implants.
 

What makes a quality denture?

Many people who wear dentures or partial dentures have difficulties with slipping, eating or sores that all stem from the apparatus being poorly-made or ill-fitting.

Dr. Smilovits works with a top denture lab to provide high quality full and partial dentures that will fit exactly, will be completely comfortable and without pain and that are stable and will not move around when you eat.

Our full and partial dentures are custom-made using quality materials that look natural and are durable. Dr. Smilovits ensures that they are the right shape, color and size for a natural look and that the bite (the way your teeth come together) is correct so that you can talk and eat properly.

We can also solve problems you may be experiencing with an existing set of dentures, and review the possibility of stabilizing your dentures with dental implants.

There are various types of dentures available, including dentures which are made more stable by the use of implants, and we will recommend the type that will work best for your mouth, your expectations and budget.

No-Charge Consultation with Dr. Smilovits

You can take advantage of our No-Charge Consultation where Dr. Smilovits will evaluate the state of your teeth and gums, take any needed x-rays and recommend the denture solution that will work best for you.

Dr. Smilovits will listen to any concerns you have and you will be able to get any questions answered, including discussing the pros and cons of using dental implants instead of dentures, and whether you are a candidate for dental implants.

Preventing pain, soreness, chewing problems and denture slippage

Inaccurately fitting dentures are the major cause of a lot of the problems with dentures and there is a technology and art to creating a perfect fit. Dr. Smilovits has many years of advanced training and experience denture design and placement, and he ensure that each set of dentures is properly measured and fit to your mouth and jaw shape.

Where appropriate and needed Dr. Smilovits uses dental implants to stabilize your dentures. This has the added benefit of deterring bone loss. Loss of bone in your mouth can cause eventual difficulties with wearing dentures, jaw problems and even change the appearance of your face, giving a sunken look.

Another major cause of denture problems is poor alignment and poor bite (the way your teeth come together and function). Dr. Smilovits ensures your dentures are properly aligned, either with each other or with the remainder of your teeth if you are wearing only upper or lower dentures.

Aligning the dentures correctly will also give you a more attractive look and prevent premature wrinkles around the lips or at the corners of the mouth.

Using dental implants to stabilize your dentures and prevent bone loss

Loss of bone in your mouth can cause eventual difficulties with wearing dentures, jaw problems and even change the appearance of your face, giving a sunken look.

As a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Smilovits is one of only 2% of dentists trained to provide full implant dentistry, including placement of dental implants and fitting dentures or crowns in place. He can help you decide whether dental implants are right for you.

It is important that you make the right decisions and get the right treatment for you. Give us a call to schedule a No-Charge consultation with Dr. Smilovits so that he can help you make these decisions and have teeth that provide you the quality of life you deserve.
