Dentures and Partials

Tooth loss has numerous detrimental effects on a patient’s health and self-esteem. Fortunately, dentures and partials offer a cost-effective method for replacing those missing teeth and restoring your smile and well-being.

Unfortunately, some patients may have a negative perception of dentures, but these prosthetics have come a long way since your grandparents wore them. As a prosthodontist, Dr. Taskonak has the expertise and experience needed to make your smile whole and beautiful again. He can take advantage of the most advanced, lifelike materials available to design an appliance that will replicate the aesthetics of your biological teeth. We offer denture repair and fabrication at our in-house denture lab.

Furthermore, dentures can be custom-designed to a patient’s specifications for maximum comfort.

The treatment process for dentures involves an initial examination in which Dr. Taskonak will gather information needed to design your appliance. When the appliance is ready, you’ll return to our office to have it fitted. Dr. Taskonak will talk with you about what to expect as you get adjusted to your dentures and what’s normal or problematic.



If you are considering dentures, you may have some of the following questions:

How much do dentures cost?

The cost of dentures will vary from patient to patient and is dependent on a number of factors unique to the patient’s case. The total cost can include components of the treatment planning, such as an examination and imaging or dental impressions. Our practice does accept a number of insurance plans, which may help to cover some of the costs associated with your treatment. For any outstanding costs beyond your insurance coverage, our practice offers a number of financing options, and we accept a variety of payment methods.

What is the cost of dentures without insurance?

Patients who do not have insurance coverage for dentures are responsible for the entire cost of the denture, including any expenses associated with treatment planning, such as examinations and dental impressions. However, our professional staff can work with you on a financing plan that fits within your budget.

What are types of dentures?

There are two types of dentures, full and partial. Full dentures are used for patients who have lost all of their teeth or need to have their remaining natural teeth extracted because they are too severely compromised. Partial dentures are appropriate for patients who need to replace just a few teeth and have a number of healthy teeth that they can keep.

What are immediate dentures?

No one wants to be toothless for a long period of time while awaiting their dentures, so patients may want to consider immediate dentures, which are placed as soon as the biological teeth are extracted. Not only does this option have a dramatic effect on your appearance, but it can also preserve your ability to speak and chew normally. Dr. Taskonak can give you more information about this treatment option and whether it is feasible in your case.

What are permanent dentures?

Dentures that are supported by dental implants typically last much longer than conventional dentures that lack a stabilizing structure under the gumline. After the surrounding bone bonds with dental implants, those implants then function like artificial tooth roots. One of the purposes of the tooth’s root is to stabilize the jaw and prevent it from wearing away. Therefore, with implant-supported dentures, the shape of the jaw is constant, as is the fit of the appliance. Implant-supported dentures are more permanent than conventional dentures.

What are partial dentures?

Partial dentures are designed to replace a small number of missing teeth. They are held in place by being clasped onto the teeth that are adjacent to the gap in the smile. Partial dentures can be designed in a number of different ways, and Dr. Taskonak will help you make the choice that is most appropriate for your case.

How often should dentures be replaced?

The jaw erodes over time after tooth loss, and its shape changes. As this process unfolds, the patient may notice that the denture does not fit as well as it once did. It may be possible to adjust the existing denture to make it fit better, but after some time, it may be necessary to replace the denture. Dr. Taskonak can give you more guidance on this aspect of your treatment.
