Partial & Full Dentures FAQ's

Partial dentures are removable dental prostheses used to replace one or more missing teeth in a dental arch. They consist of artificial teeth attached to a metal or acrylic framework that clasps onto adjacent natural teeth for support.

Full dentures, also known as complete dentures, are removable dental prostheses used to replace all of the teeth in a dental arch. They consist of artificial teeth set into a flesh-colored acrylic base that rests directly on the gums and underlying bone.

Partial dentures are designed to stay in place through a combination of clasps that grip onto adjacent natural teeth and the underlying soft tissues in the mouth. The clasps provide stability and retention, allowing the partial denture to function properly during chewing and speaking.

Full dentures rely on suction and muscle control to stay in place. The natural contours of the gums and underlying bone, along with the saliva in the mouth, create a suction effect that helps hold the denture in place. Additionally, the muscles of the cheeks and tongue assist in stabilizing the denture during speaking and chewing.

The lifespan of dentures can vary depending on factors such as oral hygiene, diet, and general wear and tear. On average, dentures may need to be replaced every 5 to 10 years to maintain proper fit and function. Over time, changes in the shape of the jawbone and gums may require adjustments or relining of the dentures to ensure a comfortable fit.

Read Our 5-Star Ratings

We are new patients to the practice and have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Joseph Merritt. Dr. Merritt is currently treating my mom who is 90 years old and helping her with some aging gum and teeth issues. The technology that Dr. MERRITT has introduced us to has been absolutely incredible but with technology comes questions. Dr. MERRITT took the time to explain everything to us, step-by-step and answered each and every question. He took his time and made sure Mom understood what he was recommending and why. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and caring approach to each conversation. We just returned from our second visit and again can report another great experience and the communication with the practice has been excellent. Kim coordinated all the transfer of mom’s dental records within an hour, so our visits have been very thorough. Did I mention the amazing technology? It is worth repeating. I am so relieved my mom is in excellent hands and we will be returning to continue the treatments Dr. MERRITT has recommended.
Dr. Vlass is my dentist even though I drive 1.5 hours to his office. I trust his judgment and he does a terrific job with my teeth. As I am advanced in years, and he has had to deal with some sensitive conditions in my mouth with outstanding results. I highly recommend their practice.
Have you ever thought you would take the time to give a dentist a review...let alone 5 stars? Well, me neither, until now. My business is all about relationships, so I pay attention when someone else values and understands that relationships are everything too. Joey Merritt, not only gets it, he embraces it. His actions and professionalism forced me to leave a dental practice that my entire family was immensely happy with when one emergency issue was treated with immediate concern at the expense of his personal time. Prior to Joey meeting me in a bad moment, the only thing we knew about each other was that my wife played tennis with his mom. What I learned after that about him was more than enough to immediately come home and tell my family that we had a new friend and dentist for life. True story.
I LOVE Dr. Merritt! He's so kind and compassionate. He's an incredible dentist! His staff is also on the same level. I've been going there for years. I first saw Dr. Vlass, then Dr. Merritt when he joined the practice. I can't recommend them enough!!
I feel that the staff listens to my concerns when I call and they try to schedule me as soon as possible. When I am seen I am confident of their care of my teeth and dental concerns. The staff is very professional! I have been seen by Dr Vlass and Dr Merritt and both are very caring and exceptional dentists. This is an outstanding dental practice! I love my dentists!!
