Custom Dentures Can Restore Your Bite
We offer several types of dentures at our Miles City practice to meet a wide range of needs. During your consultation, we will assess your oral health and explain your options. We offer full, partial, traditional, and dental implant-supported dentures. Your dentures will be custom-made to achieve a comfortable fit, natural-looking aesthetics, and proper functionality.

Types of Dentures
Today’s dental patients have more choices than ever before. If you are considering dentures, your options include:
- Traditional full dentures: This type of denture is designed to replace your entire upper or lower dental arch, or both. Full dentures consist of a gum-colored plastic base and a full set of prosthetic teeth. These dentures sit directly on your gums, held in place with a combination of suction and a mild adhesive.
- Traditional partial dentures: If you are missing one or more adjacent teeth, these dentures may be your best option. Partial dentures have a rigid metal base. Typically, they are held in place by small metal clips, which attach to your adjacent teeth.
- Fixed partial dentures: These restorations are held in place with adjacent dental crowns.
- Implant-supported dentures: Implant-supported dentures are the most stable and durable denture option. Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically implanted in the jaw to replace tooth roots. Dr. Eric Hogan can place your implants, and we can provide dentures that attach directly to the implants. This stability will allow you to speak, smile, and chew all the foods you love without worrying that your dentures will slip out of place.
We take precise measures to ensure that your dentures look natural, fit comfortably, and restore the function of your bite. We will take impressions and photographs that will be sent to an outstanding offsite dental lab, where skilled technicians will craft your dentures using durable, realistic-looking materials. Once you receive your dentures, we can make fine adjustments to ensure your satisfaction and comfort.
Benefits of Dentures
All dentures can restore the appearance of your smile, and the balance and function of your bite.
Implant-supported dentures offer several additional benefits. First, because implants are secured in the jaw bone, your dentures will not slip out of place. You can easily enjoy a crisp apple or a rare steak with implant-supported dentures. Perhaps more importantly, this solution can help you retain valuable jaw bone mass. In the absence of tooth roots, the body will begin to resorb jaw bone cells, causing the jaw to atrophy, or shrink. However, dental implants can halt this process, helping you to retain the strength and integrity of your jaw. During a consultation, Dr. Eric Hogan can determine your candidacy for implant-supported dentures.
