Have missing or damaged teeth robbed you of the simple pleasures in life? Is it time to consider dentures?
The good news is that by using advanced technology, Jensen Elledge Dental in Santa Fe, NM, makes dentures that fit better than ever.
Discover which options best suit your needs. Our dentists offer traditional, implant-supported, and partial dentures.
We Offer a Variety of Denture Styles And Customize Them to Your Needs
While traditional dentures have been around a long time, our modern technology allows us to create dentures that have a more secure fit. If you are looking for a fast, affordable solution, you will want to consider this time-tested style. Our dentists will create artificial teeth from quality materials for a natural look. These dentures are held in place by suction and a dental adhesive. They are removable for cleaning and to allow your gums to rest while you sleep.
Patients looking for a stronger bite and who want to avoid the atrophy of the jawbone that occurs after tooth loss will want to consider implant-supported dentures. These dentures are held in place by dental implants, which are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jaw. Implant-supported dentures are the closest thing to having your natural teeth back. They create a beautiful smile, and since they are attached to the implants, will never embarrass you by shifting in your mouth or falling out.
Patients frustrated by missing teeth in places throughout their mouth can find relief with high-quality partial dentures from Jensen Elledge Dental. Like all our restorations, our partial dentures are created using high-quality dental materials and natural-looking teeth that blend seamlessly with your real teeth. The framework is typically held in place by clips that attach to a nearby tooth. As an alternative, you could use dental implants to support an individual replacement tooth or dental bridge wherever there is a gap.
Unsure Which Denture Is Best for You? Call for a Consultation
With all the options available to restore missing teeth now, it can be confusing trying to decide which one is the right solution. We suggest taking the first step to a new smile by requesting a consultation at Jensen Elledge Dental in Santa Fe, NM. Dr. Jensen or Dr. Elledge can examine your mouth, go over your goals, and discuss which dentures suit your situation.
Our dentists can also explain costs and help you find out how much insurance will cover, so you can weigh your options and make the right choice for you.

Traditional or Implant-Supported Dentures? The Advantages of Implants
The biggest choice you face when selecting which dentures to wear is choosing between traditional and implant-supported dentures. Traditional dentures are faster and, at least initially, more affordable. However, there are important advantages you can experience with dental implants:
Maintain Your Jaw
Dental implants are the only restoration method that can stop the deterioration of the jawbone that occurs when teeth are lost. Implants take the place of missing tooth roots, providing the rejuvenating signals that encourage bone growth. Unfortunately, traditional dentures can't stop bone loss.
The joy of smiling freely and enjoying the foods you love is priceless. With dentures secured by implants, you'll never have to spend another moment on guard against an embarrassing mishap.
Patients love the fact that they care for implant-supported dentures just like natural teeth with simple brushing and flossing. And they never have to worry that they will be caught without their teeth. Traditional dentures must be removed at night for cleaning and to give the gums a rest.
