Restore Your Appearance and Dental Function with Dentures
Living with missing teeth can have a negative impact on both your confidence and oral health. Fortunately, Dr. Todd Shainholtz offers traditional dentures and implant-supported restorations customized to meet your unique needs. Both options provide a revitalized appearance and improved functionality, but implant-supported dentures offer superior durability and longevity. Our Eagle, CO, office features technology that allows the doctor to place implants and immediately attach a denture, so you can leave with a fully restored smile in just one visit.
Improved Oral Health and More
Individuals may become partly or fully edentulous for several reasons, including the natural aging process, trauma, and poor oral health. A full, healthy-looking set of teeth can improve your quality of life in several ways, from smiling confidently more to enjoying your favorite foods. During a consultation, Dr. Shainholtz will examine your smile to determine whether traditional or implant-supported dentures are the best restorative procedure to restore your oral health.
Dentures are either partial or full, and both are custom-fitting and designed to look completely natural. Partial removable dentures feature a metal framework that fits comfortably over the gums. This type of restoration is typically secured by metal clasps placed around surrounding teeth.

Patients who are currently missing all their teeth or require extractions are candidates for full dentures. Today's traditional dentures look and feel natural, and can greatly improve patients' ability to enunciate and chew properly. Upper dentures cover the entire roof of the mouth, using a combination of adhesive and suction to remain in place, while lower dentures simply rest on the gums. Partial and full restorations can easily be removed for cleaning and maintenance.
Dental Implant-Supported Restorations
Dental implants are widely recognized as the superior method for tooth replacement and are often incorporated into full mouth reconstruction plans. These small screws are implanted into the jaw to replace missing dental roots. Because the posts integrate with the jawbone during healing, literally becoming part of the body, implants provide unmatched support and stabilization for dentures.
Implant-supported dentures can be either partial or complete, depending on your needs, and are firmly attached to the top of the implant posts. Only Dr. Shainholtz will be able to remove and replace the denture, but you can still clean and maintain it easily on your own. Implant-supported dentures allow you to eat any food you like with ease, and speak with renewed confidence and clarity.
Unparalleled Security and Other Benefits
While traditional dentures offer several restorative benefits, implant-supported restorations offer:
- Permanent solution: Dental implants are permanent, allowing patients to enjoy improved oral health for years to come.
- Improved bone health: These titanium posts fuse with the jaw, which guards against the bone loss that naturally occurs after teeth are lost or extracted.
- Stable fit: Sometimes traditional dental prosthetics may slip or fall out, but implant-supported dentures will remain in firmly place and give you the confidence you deserve.
- Improved nutrition: Consuming certain foods can be difficult with traditional dentures, but implant-supported denture patients can eat an unrestricted diet.
Regardless of the type you choose, all our denture patients can expect to experience a significantly improved quality of life.
