A Smile That Works for You
Tooth loss is a common occurrence among adults in the United States. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, people between the ages of 20 and 64 have lost an average of three teeth, excluding wisdom teeth. The average number of missing teeth increases significantly in seniors over age 65. By that age, the Centers for Disease Control states that nearly one in four Americans no longer have any natural teeth.
West Dental Implant and Prosthetics in Durango, Colorado offers full, partial, and implant-supported dentures. If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth and want to learn more about dentures in Durango, ask your regular dentist to write you a referral for a consultation to learn more.
During your appointment, our Durango prosthodontist will complete a full exam, including X-rays of your jaws, gums, and remaining teeth, if any. We will also take an impression of any remaining teeth to create a mold. Our dental laboratory receives copies of the images and your impressions to assist the technicians in creating your new dentures Durango.
