Do You Need Avondale Dentures?
If you have lost some or all of your natural teeth, then dentures may be the solution for you.

Don’t miss out on the many benefits of replacing your missing teeth, which can include:
- Improved dental health
- More attractive smiles
- Less facial sagging
- Stronger self-esteem
- Easier eating and speaking
Consult with the specialists at Southern Dental Care to see if dentures or partials are right for you! If you’re interested in a surgical solution, you can also read more about our dental implants.
Dentures vs. Partials
Although you might not have known it, there are several different kinds of dentures. Most often, our patients receive either complete dentures or partial dentures. To learn about the remaining types of dentures available today, read this information from the American Dental Association.
Complete dentures, also known as conventional dentures, are made ahead of time to be placed in your mouth after all of your teeth have been extracted. They will require some refitting by your dentist, but they are removable. Partial dentures, on the other hand, can be used if any of your natural teeth remain intact. They fill the spaces between missing teeth to keep them from shifting. Partial dentures are kept in place with a metal fastener that attaches the partial dentures to your natural teeth.
Southern Dental Care provides residents of Avondale dentures as well as partials, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you are in need of either!
How to Care for Dentures
Once you have your dentures, it’s important to care for them properly. Be sure to:
- Brush daily to remove food particles and plaque and avoid staining.
- Use a toothbrush with soft bristles and a non-abrasive cleaner when you brush.
Protect your dentures by placing them in water when they’re not in your mouth.
When you receive your dentures from Southern Dental Care, we will make sure to explain everything you need to know about caring for them. You should also always feel free to call us at 504-347-1014 with any questions you have about our Avondale dentures or other services.
