Dentures - What are they?
Dentures are removable replacements for missing/removed teeth. They are normally created from an acrylic resin with plastic or porcelain denture teeth. Complete Dentures and Partial Dentures are the two different types of dentures. These dentures are custom designed and crafted to fit your specific needs. Dentures can help strengthen muscles working with your facial expressions that require the support of your teeth, and aid with chewing.
Implants - What Are They
Implants are an artificial tooth root replacement. An implant can be used to hold a crown, partial denture or a full denture. The most common use is to retain the lower denture as they are very hard to keep in place.

Once I had made the decision to have dentures made, I gave
great thought to choosing the right denturist. I decided upon Dave Dahl at
Western Denture Center and I am glad I did. Dave has been practicing his craft
for more than 30 years and uses the latest techniques and technology to ensure
your dentures will fit well, feel comfortable, and look great.|
There are a number of steps involved in the making of dentures. Great care must be exercised during each phase of the process to insure proper fit and alignment. Castings must be made from which the structure of the denture will be created. Jaw movement must be traced and graphed to insure proper function and positioning. Since each individual’s mouth is unique, the denturist must have the knowledge to recognize which technique is recommended to achieve the best result. Dave Dahl has the knowledge of the latest methods and the skill to use them effectively.
Once my dentures were finished, Dave gave me instructions as to how to care for them, and what I should do to become accustomed to them. He contacted me within a few days after I began wearing them to see if I had any problems. I did – the dentures began to wear against a bony prominence of my lower gums. Dave told me this was to be expected and made a minor adjustment to the fitting. They have fit and felt fine ever since.
One concern I had about getting dentures was the cost. Not only was affordability important to me, but I wanted to make certain that the money was well spent. Few things are worse than finding out that saving a few dollars in the short term meant problems in the long term. Getting dentures is a long term investment in one’s self, and few investments have better returns that a nice smile. Not only were my dentures top quality, but their affordability gave me one more thing to smile about. In addition, Dave has a very friendly, gentile manner which underscores his personal commitment to provide the best service possible. Like Dave, his assistant Trish is also friendly and personable. Together, they made the process pleasant and painless.
If you or anyone you know is considering getting dentures, I highly recommend that you contact Western Denture Center today for a free consultation. You have nothing to lose and a healthier mouth and better appearance to gain.
Our denturist is the best person we have ever gotten dentures from. He does such wonderful work that people can't tell we wear dentures. And his office is such a great place to visit. We have recommended him to our friends, and as long as we live here, he's the one we're going to see for our denture needs.
