What Are Full Dentures?
Full dentures are a timeless tooth replacement solution. Used for centuries to replace missing teeth, today’s dentures are made of acrylic and porcelain teeth. Customized according to the specified size, shape, and color, your natural suction holds them in place, allowing you to enjoy a more confident and healthier smile.
How Do They Work?
When receiving full dentures, your dentist in Rock Hill will send impressions to a dental lab where technicians will fabricate your prosthetics. Durable and capable of withstanding normal daily wear and tear, an upper denture is designed to cover the full palate of your mouth while a lower denture is made into the shape of a horseshoe, allowing room for your tongue.
Your natural suction helps to hold both dentures in place; however, many patients opt to purchase added dental adhesive for greater security.
Indications You May Need a Full Denture
Knowing if you need a denture is ultimately up to Dr. Coombs or Dr. Ross. During your initial consultation, they will evaluate your smile and determine if full dentures will give you the results you desire. Typically, individuals looking to receive dentures are facing:
- Swollen or red gums
- Loose teeth
- Missing teeth
- Consistent toothaches
Once you are cleared for dentures, our team will capture impressions of your smile as well as measurements before sending them to a lab for creation.

Cost of Full Dentures
