Natural Looking Dentures
When you need dentures, our goal is to make them look as natural as possible, perhaps even better than what Mother Nature gave you. While dentures take some getting used to, today’s dentures are natural-looking and more comfortable than ever. We can give you back your beautiful smile. Dentures, whether partial or complete, are an affordable, esthetic way to regain function, comfort and confidence.
Dr. Wheatley offers the two main types of dentures: full and partial at our Norman dental office. We will help you choose the type of denture that is best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

Full or Complete Dentures
Many patients who are missing all their teeth turn to full dentures as a full arch solution. If complete dentures are necessary, Dr. Wheatley uses extensive techniques to deliver not only the look, but the stability of natural teeth including implant retained dentures. Full dentures are used to replace teeth after they have all been lost or removed. The teeth are usually removed due to gum disease or decay. Dentures are used to replace missing teeth and can be either conventional or immediate. Conventional dentures are usually placed after all of the teeth have been removed and the gums have begun to heal, usually after about 6-12 weeks. Immediate dentures are placed immediately after the teeth have been removed. These appliances allow the patient to replace missing teeth during the healing process but will most likely need to be relined or redesigned after healing is complete, as the gums will shift and change during this time. Complete dentures may also be secured with implants.
Partial dentures are appliances that are used when one or more natural teeth remain healthy in the upper or lower jaw. They may be used to replace one or multiple teeth. Partial dentures are clasped onto existing teeth and offer dependable retention.They are designed to fit around the remaining healthy teeth. Removable partial dentures can be removed from the mouth for cleaning or eating. A fixed partial denture accomplishes the same result as a removable partial denture, except that it is cemented into place using the adjacent teeth or implants for support and is usually called a bridge.
We understand the frustrations when your denture cracks while eating or when dropped. It is tough to live with even for a few days. This is why we offer next-day denture repairs or adjustments for smaller damage and guarantee quick repairs for bigger issues. Just bring your damaged denture in and we will restore it. You will get a sturdy and high-quality restoration.
