Smile! We've Got You Covered
Full or partial tooth loss, if left untreated, doesn't just affect a person's self-image — it can also increase the risk of developing nutritional problems and other systemic health disorders. Fortunately, there's a reliable and time-tested method for treating this condition: full or partial dentures.
Dentures are removable mouth appliances that replace missing teeth and restore form and function to your smile. Replacing missing teeth will improve your overall health and appearance by giving you the ability to chew, digest, and speak more easily. Facial muscles begin to sag and make you look older when teeth are missing. Dentures restore your natural facial volume, helping you look younger and enhance the overall beauty of your smile by filling out the appearance of your face and profile. Whether you have lost your teeth to decay, periodontal disease, or trauma, Dr. Masone can restore your beautiful smile with dentures. Dentures can take some getting used to, but unlike false teeth from the past, today’s dentures are comfortable and natural-looking.
Dentures are just one option for replacing missing teeth; some of the others include fixed bridgework and dental implants. Each method has its particular advantages and drawbacks, which should be carefully considered. There are also several varieties of dentures available to address specific issues, from partial dentures to implant-supported overdentures. During your free consultation, we will explain your available options and help determine which is best for your individual needs and desires.
How Do Removable Dentures Work?
Full or partial dentures consist of a gum-colored base made of plastic resin, which fits over the remaining alveolar (bone) ridge that formerly held the teeth. The prosthetic teeth projecting from the base are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. Dentures are held in place primarily by the suctioning effect of their close fit against the alveolar ridges — that's why it's so important that they are fitted properly. The upper denture also gets extra support from the large surface area of the roof of the mouth (palate), which generally makes it extremely stable.
At first, wearing dentures may require some getting used to in terms of talking and eating, as the dentures become “balanced” in the space formerly occupied by the teeth. But over time, the muscles, nerves and ligaments of the mouth learn to work in new ways, which allows these functions to occur normally. Dentures also help support the facial skeleton and the soft tissues of the lips and cheeks, which can help create a more youthful appearance.

For over two decades, most of the major Northwest Florida hospitals and patient advocates have been sending their patients to Denture & Dental Services. They count on us to replace dentures or fabricate new dentures that have been accidentally thrown away during medical emergencies and inpatient hospital care, as well as to repair dentures that have been broken during hospital stays. They know that through our gentle, dental care and precision work, patients they send will be extremely happy to have their smiles expertly and quickly restored. Additionally, many dentists refer patients to us because of our keen expertise about dentures and implant-supported dentures.
For patients who meet certain criteria, we can provide same-day dentures with our denture lab on-site. Dentures will take other dental offices that use an outside lab three to six weeks. We understand that your smile matters, and so does your time. So, we streamlined the denture process. Our office allows patients to arrive early in the morning to make impressions for their denture, have extractions done during the day, and receive their custom dentures by the end of the day! Our process eliminates the need for additional appointments which allows our already affordable services to fit your schedule and needs.
This new set of teeth, although temporary, locks into place, meaning you can immediately begin the transition to eating the foods you want again. After six months you receive the final denture, which locks into place, making it a long-lasting smile solution that will restore not just your smile, but a higher quality of life. No more worrying about smiling, eating or speaking, meaning you can focus on simply maintaining good oral hygiene to ensure the dentures last for many years to come.
Our practice is .4 miles away from a public beach access with free parking. Here, patients can have their dental appointment and their toes in the sand or the surf within minutes of leaving our office. Please click here to learn about our Destination Dentistry program.
Our Unique Denture Process
Making quality dentures is a blend of science and art. Dr. Masone and his staff combine their years of experience and training to provide you with the highest quality of custom-made dentures that have been shaped to your mouth. First, an accurate impression (mold) is made of the alveolar ridges on the top and bottom of your mouth. The base of the denture is made from this mold in our on-site dental laboratory. Working together, we will help you choose from among many different sizes and shapes of prosthetic teeth to re-create a natural-looking smile. When everyone is satisfied with the result, the temporary dentures are made in permanent form.
To enable normal speech and eating, it's crucial to balance your bite. This means that the upper and lower dentures come together and properly stabilize each other. We carefully check the form and function of the dentures to ensure that they are working and fitting properly.
What To Expect After Getting Dentures
If you've recently lost your teeth and received an immediate denture, it's normal to find some tissue shrinkage and bone loss occurring. Therefore, in several months you may find that your immediate dentures no longer fit well. You will have two choices at this point: You can have your immediate (temporary) dentures re-lined. This means that material is added under the denture's base to better conform to the new contours of your alveolar ridge. A better option is to move to a set of conventional full dentures, which will last longer and fit better. With proper care, dentures offer a functional, aesthetic and economical solution to the problem of tooth loss.
