Living without a full set of teeth can present challenges, but at Olive Branch Dental, we’re dedicated to providing assistance. Our team of dentists and committed professionals offers a range of denture solutions aimed at revitalizing your smile and boosting your confidence.


Dentures are removable replacement teeth that closely resemble natural teeth. There are two primary types of dentures: full and partial.
  • Full dentures are provided to patients when all their natural teeth have been extracted. Conventional full dentures are fitted after the gum tissue has healed, a process that may span several months. Immediate full dentures, on the other hand, are placed immediately after tooth extraction and may require frequent adjustments during the initial couple of months of use.
  • Partial dentures are affixed to a metal framework that connects to your existing natural teeth. They serve to fill the spaces left by permanent teeth that have been removed. Partial dentures are a removable alternative to dental bridges.
How can I ascertain if dentures are the suitable choice for my situation?
Dentures may not be suitable for every individual. If you wish to explore denture options and assess their appropriateness for your needs, kindly arrange an appointment with us. Our team is readily available to address any inquiries you may have and to evaluate the most suitable treatment plan for your ongoing dental well-being.
Certainly, there are alternative solutions available besides dentures. Although dentures have traditionally been a common choice for addressing missing teeth, dental implants and bridges represent excellent alternatives that offer a more permanent and natural-feeling solution. During your consultation, your dentist will be pleased to provide detailed information about these alternatives.


Caring for dentures is akin to maintaining natural teeth and requires daily attention to ensure cleanliness and prevent bacterial growth in the oral cavity. Here are essential steps to maintain clean dentures and a healthy smile:
  1. When handling your dentures, do so over a clean, folded towel or a sink filled with water. This precaution minimizes the risk of breakage should you accidentally drop your dentures.
  2. Dentures are susceptible to plaque and tartar buildup, so daily brushing is crucial. Use a soft-bristled brush and gently clean the denture surfaces, taking care not to damage the plastic. After meals, rinse your dentures thoroughly.
  3. Employ a mild cleanser for denture cleaning. Many toothpaste, household cleaners, and mouthwashes can be abrasive, potentially harming your dentures. Opt for a gentle hand or dish soap, ensuring it carries the American Dental Association (ADA) seal of approval, or seek your dentist’s recommendations for suitable products.
  4. When not wearing your dentures, maintain their moisture. Dentures left exposed to air can dry out, lose their shape, or even develop cracks. Different types of dentures may require specific soaking solutions, so consult your dentist for the best option.
  5. Even with full dentures, it’s important to keep your gums and tongue clean. Use a soft-bristled brush to gently clean your gums and tongue daily.
By following these practices, you can ensure the cleanliness and longevity of your dentures while promoting overall oral health.
