Denture Options

Dr. Schilt, Dr. Welch, and their team at McKenzie River Dental provide dentures in Springfield which can replace missing teeth and restore a beautiful smile. McKenzie River Dental is a comprehensive dental practice that uses a dental lab right here in Springfield, Oregon.

A removable partial denture attaches to your natural teeth with clasps that keep them in place, completing your smile by filling out the spaces created by missing teeth. Partial dentures are constructed of replacement teeth attached to pink or gum-colored plastic bases connected by a metal framework. Your natural teeth are used as stable supports for removable partial dentures.

A full denture is a removable prosthetic that replaces all of the teeth in an arch. This is an affordable choice for those who are looking for a less expensive option. It can also be used when a patient is transitioning to implants or some other major reconstruction of the mouth.

Giving dentures more stability and better fit, an overdenture is a type of denture that is placed over dental implants, or retained roots, and typically “snaps” into place over the anchors. This is a great option for patients who have a substantial amount of bone loss.
