Tooth loss may be unavoidable, but losing your smile doesn’t have to be. Dentures and Partial dentures are a convenient and affordable solution to tooth loss.
Our Las Vegas dentures and partial dentures patients are thrilled by their permanently restored new set of teeth that are easy to maintain, convenient and natural looking. With dentures or partial dentures, you never again have to worry about your smile degrading as you grow older.
Dentures are a great solution for patients with moderate to severe tooth loss who are not a candidate for dental implants. Over time, patients with missing teeth experience sagging of the facial muscles, which accelerates the appearance of aging. Dentures fill out the structure of the face, aid in chewing, and keeps your smile looking full and radiant.

Dentures are removable artificial teeth that are designed to fit your mouth and restore your individual smile. Our high-quality Las Vegas dentures and partial dentures are made from metal and acrylic materials and fit over your gums securely and comfortably.
While dentures are designed to resemble your natural teeth, our high-end materials are so well designed that they can actually improve the appearance of your original smile. Dentures come in two varieties: full or partial. To find out what option is best for you, call your Dentist at Sahara Dental Center to schedule a consultation.
In your first visit, your dentist will take a series of measurements and molds of your mouth to ensure the perfect fit for your new teeth. Using your jaw impressions, your dentist will create working models or wax forms that will be shaped and fine-tuned to perfectly fit your mouth.
You and your dentist will work over the models and make any necessary adjustments to the size and shape of your new teeth before any final product is cast. Once you and your dentist are happy with the look and fit of your new dentures, the final product will be cast using the best quality materials. When your dentures are ready, you will come back to the office to ensure your dentures fit perfectly.
While dentures take some getting used to, over time, dentures will feel more natural as the muscles of the tongue and cheek learn how to adapt to your new dentures and naturally keep it in place. It is not uncommon to experience soreness or unnatural flows of saliva in the beginning. Rest assured — in time, your dentures will feel as natural to you as your real teeth.
For some patients, adhesives may be used to keep dentures in place. There are many types of adhesives and they must be used as directed. Talk with your dentist about whether adhesives may be right for you.
Just like regular teeth, dentures require consistent cleaning and maintenance. Be sure to brush your dentures twice daily and give them a good rinse before and after. For optimum care of your dentures, we recommend using a soft toothbrush and non-abrasive cleaner to prevent scratching. When your dentures are not in your mouth, keep them in a safe place. To avoid warping, do not store your dentures in hot or extremely cold water.
