Des Moines Iowa's Premier Choice in Dentures
Iowa Dental Group dentures are custom fit for each patient, which provides a natural appearance and, most importantly, a comfortable fit.
Typical denture process takes roughly two weeks. If you need services faster, we can expedite your order. There is typically a total of four fittings to a make sure they both look and perform flawlessly.
A wax try-in is the final step before we process your dentures, which allows you to see how your new dentures will look. The try-in makes sure you that when your custom dentures arrive, you will be both confident and comfortable.
We would love to discuss Dentures and all the other cosmetic dental services Iowa Dental Group provides. Please contact us through the contact form below or call us at (515) 277-6358.
What are Dentures?
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether, from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. That’s because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.
Partial dentures replace some of your upper or lower teeth, unlike full dentures which replace all. Partial dentures are custom designed for a natural appearance and comfortable feel.
Iowa Dental Group makes our dentures from the finest dental materials available, which both wear longer and are less prone to possible breakage.
A partial cosmetic denture can replace up to six teeth while you wait for your custom partial dentures from our dental laboratory.
Dentures are constructed in two weeks and typically take four fittings to make sure they fit correctly. Before we make your metal or flexite partials, we will place a wax try-in. This way you can see how your new teeth will look.
Refitting dentures to compensate for natural changes in a patient’s mouth is known as denture relining. Physical changes may be shrinking of bone and tissue. Patients typically notice a need when their dentures become loose or lose stability. Soreness is another indicator of a need for a patient to have dentures relined.
We only use laboratory relines, which offers maximum comfort and require less final adjustments. Laboratory relines typically take three hours if you call with an appointment first.
If patients have a very flat lower ridge or have chronic soreness, we suggest soft denture relines. We only use the highest quality material to help with both the pain and fit complications that flat lower ridge patients may have. We firmly suggest against the cheaper “chairside” materials other dentists may use as this not only does not fit as well but becomes brittle after only a few months.
Soft denture relines take a little longer (typically 8 hours or laboratory processing), but we offer overnight service if needed.
We have always prided ourselves in offering the highest quality dentistry at a fair and reasonable fee. One that the patient is willing to pay with gratitude and we are willing to accept with gratitude. Our patients are satisfied when treatment is completed or we will continue to strive to meet our own high expectations.
