Most people who envision the thought of receiving dentures do so much later in their lives because they assume young adults don’t need dentures. However, unfortunate incidents such as disease, poor dental hygiene, an accident, or a medical condition, can rob people of their teeth at a younger age. If you are struggling with major tooth loss as a young adult, we invite you to visit Dr. Kent Stapley & Dr. Nathan Kitchen for dentures.

There is no need to feel embarrassed and self-conscious about your missing teeth when Dr. Kent Stapley and Dr. Nathan Kitchen offer so many options for tooth loss. In cases of significant tooth loss, dentures are typically the ideal treatment because they restore your our ability to speak and eat and your self-confidence.

If your smile still has some teeth, but they are not enough to support a dental appliance, our dentist may perform tooth extractions so that they can place dentures. We offer immediate dentures as an option so that you don’t have to go without teeth for an extended period of time. However, you will need to visit us again in a few months to have your dentures relined because your jaw will change after tooth extraction.

For a more permanent option, you may want to consider implant-supported dentures, which use dental implants to support your jaw. The dentures are then placed on top.

To keep your new dentures and your dental health in good shape, take care of your dentures as you would actual teeth with daily dental care. We can provide you with more in-depth denture care instructions when you receive your dentures. If you have questions now or would like to schedule your visit with our dentist, please call 480-830-8946 today. We look forward to restoring your smile!
