Full & Partial Dentures

Exceptional Care For Your Family


What Are Dentures?

Dentures are prosthetic devices constructed to replace missing teeth, and which are supported by surrounding soft and hard tissues of the oral cavity.

Conventional dentures are removable, however there are many different denture designs, some which rely on bonding or clasping onto teeth or dental implants.

Types of Dentures

There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that's best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

How Long Before I Get Used to My Dentures?

New dentures may feel awkward or uncomfortable for the first few weeks or even months. Eating and speaking with dentures might take a little practice.

A bulky or loose feeling is not uncommon, while the muscles of your cheeks and tongue learn to hold your dentures in place. Excessive saliva flow, a feeling that the tongue does not have adequate room, and minor irritation or soreness are also not unusual. If you experience irritation, Dr. Cook immediately.

What People Are Saying

The staff is very nice and very helpful. Amy has done a great job with my fillings (5 of them so far) and is very professional but makes me feel comfortable at the same time.

Joe S. on Google

I have very sensitive gums and Dr. Cook did everything she could to make sure I was comfortable during my whole cleaning. She took the time to see what was bothering me and what was great. I have definitely found my new dentist office.

Michelle C. on Google

I would give everyone that works here a 12 star review. I was given a teeth cleaning by an experienced Dental Hygienist (Elizabeth) that takes her time to do a great job and explained in detail what she is doing and is concerned that you're comfortable. Dr Cook also was very detailed when she examined my teeth and made very good recommendations.

Susan A. on Yelp

Every single person here is genuinely extremely kind and caring. I have been coming here for years and even on my first visit it felt like I was coming to friends and family to hang out.

Matt P. on Yelp

Amy Cook has treated me absolutely competently for many years. I've never had one problem with any dental work or in-office pain management protocol and, as an added bonus, her referrals to colleagues for specialized care have resulted in equally excellent treatment.

JoAnne C. on Yelp

If anyone is looking for a general dentistry office, this is the place to go. All the staff is very friendly and make you feel at home. Dr. Cook and Dr. Smart are perfectionist and their dentistry is nothing but perfection.
