Replacing Missing Teeth  Can Improve Your Daily Life

Rejuvenate Your Appearance

Tooth loss can cause sunken cheeks and puckered lips, making you look older than you feel. Whether you need a partial or full denture, Drs. Kofford or Lim can customize your restoration to rebuild your smile and take years off your appearance

Restore Your Quality of Life

With a custom set of dentures, you can enjoy a renewed ability to chew properly and speak clearly. A fully functional smile can improve every aspect of your daily life. With our three-visit protocol using our advanced digital dentistry services, we manufacture highly aesthetic dentures on-site with no waiting time.

Benefit from Implants

As a board-certified prosthodontist, Drs. Kofford and Lim can place dental implants to support your full or partial dentures. Placed into your jaw, these titanium posts can keep your dentures securely in place and prevent your jawbone from deteriorating in the wake of tooth loss.

Losing Natural Teeth Is  a Common Issue for Many Adults

The Benefits of Replacing  Damaged Teeth

When decay, trauma, or infection affect a tooth, your dentist will always attempt to save it before recommending an extraction. However, there are cases that become too severe to address without removing the affected teeth. Extracting decayed, infected, or damaged teeth can protect other areas of your smile. For example, if tooth decay has led to periodontal issues, removing the source of infection can allow your gums to heal.

If most or all of your teeth need to be removed, you have several options, including dental implants and conventional dentures. For patients who are facing extractions, our doctors will typically recommend receiving dental implants as soon as possible. Replacement teeth supported by implants offer a wide variety of benefits compared to traditional restorations, including enhanced stability and improved jaw health.

Choosing the Right Type  of Dentures for Your Needs

Conventional dentures are a quick and affordable solution for tooth loss. However, removable dentures are not as stable as restorations supported by dental implants. An implant-supported denture mimics every structure of natural teeth, including the tooth roots, meaning your restoration stays firmly in place.

In addition, dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing recession and maintaining the health of your smile. If you are struggling to decide between removable and implant-supported dentures, Dr. Kofford and Dr. Lim in Cary can discuss your options with you so you can make an informed decision about your oral health.

1st Visit

During this first visit, one of our dentists will use your existing dentures as an impression tray. You will leave our Cary office with realigned dentures, and our prosthodontists will have a much more accurate starting point for your treatment. After digitizing your denture, they will print a prototype. 

2nd Visit

You will return to our Cary office to try on the prototype. This prototype will be used as a final impression tray to process your new denture.

3rd Visit

On your final visit, you will come back to our office for your new denture. Our doctors will test your bite, ensure that your denture fits properly, and make adjustments as necessary.
