Dentures

Our experienced dentist, Dr. Wayne Suway, has been crafting custom dentures for more than 30 years. Both full and partial dentures are offered at our practice as part of our restorative dentistry treatments to help you meet your individual needs. Our custom-crafted dentures are designed for the most comfortable and natural fit.

When dentures are ill-fitting, they can move and slip along the gums, negatively affecting your speech as well as the way you smile and eat. This is why Dr. Suway takes the time to adjust the shape, color, and style of your dentures for optimal results. Based on the state of your gums and teeth, he may recommend one of three types of dentures: traditional dentures, overdentures, or implant-supported dentures — all of which are available as full or partial dentures. We offer a variety of options that can work to help you replace missing teeth with beautiful, comfortable results.

Benefits of Dentures

Advanced denture options can provide a wealth of benefits for both the look and function of your teeth. While each type has certain distinctions, virtually every type of denture we offer can replace missing teeth with:

  • a natural-looking appearance
  • improved functionality of the teeth
  • a reduced risk of bone loss
  • support for adjacent teeth

During the consultation process, Dr. Wayne Suway will help you understand what each type of denture can offer you based on your unique dental situation.

Types of Dentures

Filling in the gap left by missing teeth is crucial to prevent resulting damage to the rest of your teeth. Since every patient has unique dental needs, Dr. Suway offers various denture types to address every concern. The following dentures are available in both full and partial form:

Traditional Dentures
Our traditional, removable dentures are made of high quality materials for a durable and natural-looking fit. They can be designed to replace all or a few teeth, depending on your oral health and individual needs. They can ultimately help maintain or correct your bite for a more comfortable and functional solution. On average, traditional dentures last about 7 to 15 years.

Overdentures
Overdentures are recommended when your tooth roots are still intact. Your tooth root will act as a support for the denture and can ultimately help to prevent bone loss in your jaw. During the procedure, Dr. Suway will prepare your tooth roots to fit under the overdenture. This part of the procedure may include a root canal to eliminate nerve sensitivity.

Implant-Supported Dentures
For a more long-lasting solution, Dr. Suway may recommend dental implants to support a full or partial denture for patients who are eligible for the procedure. Implant-supported dentures function like normal teeth, as they are not removable and require only the normal degree of maintenance, such as brushing, flossing, and routine cleanings and checkups. The dentures are affixed to titanium posts that have been anchored into the jawbone, creating teeth that typically look and feel natural. On average, implant-supported dentures can last around 25 years.

Why Choose Dr. Suway for Your Dentures?

Our experienced dentist has worked with thousands of patients over his three-decade career. In that time, he has created numerous custom dentures that have brought patients greater comfort, improved functionality, and beautiful aesthetic results. During your initial consultation, Dr. Suway will evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums and will recommend a solution that can provide the best results. He will also address any questions or concerns you may have and talk with you about all of your options so that you’ll have a thorough idea of what to expect.

I have known Dr. Suway for 30 years. My parents found him originally and made me a believer and life long friend and patient. In the years since, I have recommended my husband, son and friends. I would hear that going to the dentist was a fear of many people. I could never understand that because it was always a pleasure to come to Dr. Suway’s office. His staff are so professional, gentle and kind. It’s nice to see the same faces twice a year. You can tell they love working with him. I tell people that Dr. Suway gives the best shots – you can’t even feel a pinch. My son who hates needles, has no problem getting a shot for a filling. I love Dr. Suway’s personality. When you walk in the office you might hear him singing a country western song. I have porcelain veneers on my front teeth and am so thrilled. It’s been 10 years and they are still white and beautiful. He is an artist and perfectionist who loves to make people happy. I recommend Dr. Suway to become your dentist. He is a man of character and professionalism, yet down to earth. If you choose Dr. Suway, you’ll get an excellent dentist, but also a friend for life.

Dennis & Maria Liber

Dr. Suway is very relaxed and as a result we find that we are very relaxed as well. He takes the time to listen when we have concerns and he answers questions fully. We never feel like he is rushing from us to another patient. When we do need fillings, crowns or any other extensive work, he is concerned that we are comfortable and feeling no pain.

Nealean K. Austin

Through the years, we have found Dr. Suway to be a skillful perfectionist in all areas of his profession. He keeps abreast of and utilizes the latest dental techniques to improve and ensure the longevity of his patient’s teeth. He is a caring, personable professional who always greets his patients with a sincere, ready smile. Dr. Suway is also a ‘confidence booster.’ I say this because by the time I was 30 years old I was wearing dentures. He immediately recognized a self-conscious young wife, mother and professional who needed his professional help. His approach to boosting my confidence was through dental implants. At that time dental implants were a relatively new procedure. Dr. Suway carefully explained to me the advantages of dental implants and was proactive in working with my insurance provider to ensure that they understood the correlation between the required dental procedures and health plan benefits. I can smile with confidence forever because of Dr. Suway. Dr. Suway’s staff is a mirror image of his positive professionalism. They are always courteous, knowledgeable, efficient and personable. Appointments are scheduled at your convenience. You know that your time is valued because at the precise time of your appointment you are greeted, then immediately seen by either Dr. Suway or a hygienist. His work is outstanding and he is one of a kind.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Suway since 1988. Dr. Suway and his staff have provided us with state-of-the-art oral health care in a pleasant, friendly and compassionate environment for many years. Dr. Suway has done many procedures for me including root canals, crowns and a bridge. His work is beautiful. He is truly a perfectionist and that is exactly what I want in a dentist. I would never trust my smile to anyone other then Dr. Suway.
