Dentures Q & A

From start to finish, Dr. Mahajan can monitor and alter the look and feel of your dentures to make sure you end up with a smile you're proud to show off.
Are immediate dentures right for me?
You might be a prime candidate for immediate dentures if you've lost your teeth as a result of illness, injury, or decay, and need full dentures. Immediate dentures mean you never have to be without teeth. Be aware, though, that as your mouth heals from the loss of your natural teeth and immediate denture inserts, your dentures require relining to ensure the most comfortable and accurate fit over time.
Are partial dentures the right choice for me?
Removable partial dentures with a metal frame are the most common type of partial dentures. Unlike full dentures, which replace all of your natural teeth, partial dentures only replace missing teeth.
Dr. Mahajan will measure your mouth and build a model so she can construct your dentures as quickly and as efficiently as possible. Partial dentures with metal frames connect to existing teeth, keeping them in place and you feeling secure—all without dental adhesives.
Acrylic partial dentures are less expensive than metal ones but don’t last as long. They are typically used to replace front teeth as a temporary solution while Dr. Mahajan constructs permanent partials or bridges.
Can my dentures be repaired?
Dr. Mahajan at Progressive Dental Care offers a wide range of denture repairs in just a couple hours, or even while you wait. Denture repairs take place on-site.
