Complete and Partial Dentures
Making the decision to get dentures is emotional and very personal. If you are unsure of whether dentures are the right treatment option for you, Dr. David King can meet with you and help you decide.
If you are either missing all of your natural teeth or have many remaining natural teeth that are unhealthy and need to be extracted, you are likely a strong candidate for complete dentures. If you are only missing some of your natural teeth and still have a mouth full of healthy remaining teeth, partial dentures may be a better option for you.
Improved Look and Function
Some of our Huntsville, AL patients have expressed concerns about the way complete or partial dentures may look and feel in their mouths. While there truly is no replacement that will be exactly like your natural teeth, dentures have come a long way since their initial design. The dentures we use at King Dental look more modern and fit much better than their predecessors from years past.

When you get a new set of dentures or even a partial denture, it can feel great because it helps you eat the foods you enjoy. Over time, however, it may seem like your denture feels loose or floppy, and it could even start shifting or falling out at embarrassing times.
Your denture has not stretched out, so what does this mean?
How To Fix Loose Fitting Dentures
Denture fit can change over time with bone or weight loss. This can make them seem loose because the oral structures that hold them in place have changed. Using pastes or gels are really only a short-term solution to the problem and can be a real pain. If you have loose-fitting dentures and need help from a qualified dentist in Huntsville, AL, give us a call for a solution.
Denture adjustment – Partial dentures have wires that hold them in place. After months or years of chewing, those wires can distort and bend. We can adjust them for increased stability and comfort. We can also eliminate tight spots on complete dentures to prevent painful sores.
Denture reline – Your denture fit can be adjusted with a reline. This is sometimes done in our dental office, but occasionally we need to use a dental lab. We offer fast turnaround times to keep you from going without your teeth.
New dentures – Even the best dentures need to be replaced every 5 to 7 years or so. If you have dramatic changes in your health, it may need to happen sooner. Maintaining a healthy diet is essential to good overall health, so don’t put it off!
