Missing teeth can take the joy out of everyday life, from impacting your ability to eat to detracting from the appearance of your smile.
Whether you are missing most or all of your teeth, dentures can restore dental function and make your smile whole and attractive again.
At Michael Bixby Center for Advanced Dentistry in Red Bank, NJ, our dentist offers traditional and implant-retained dentures.

For years patients have relied on dentures as a reliable way to replace an entire arch of teeth. Thanks to modern dentistry, today’s dentures look and feel more natural than ever before. Traditional dentures can restore your upper or lower dental arch or both.
The palette and gum portions of a traditional denture are typically made of pink acrylic, while the prosthetic teeth are fabricated from porcelain. Full dentures are held in place with natural suction and special adhesives so they rest comfortably and securely on the gums. Countless people turn to this tried and true method to replace missing teeth.
Traditional dentures offer several advantages:
- They require no surgery or needles.
- They are a quick and comprehensive method to replace missing teeth.
- They are an effective way to fill out your face, which can appear sunken due to tooth loss.
- They are an easily removable appliance for convenient daily care.
- They are an economical alternative to dental implants.
While traditional dentures remain a trusted way to fill out your smile, more patients are choosing dental implants to support their restoration. These small titanium posts are surgically implanted in the jawbone. Because the implants fuse with your bone, they create an incredibly stable base for your dentures. In fact, with the proper care, most patients can enjoy their implants for a lifetime.
As for the restorations, they look like and can be cared for just like natural teeth once they are in place. Implant-supported dentures can last for decades, making them an outstanding long-term investment in your health.
Some of the other reasons dental implants are gaining in popularity include:
- Dental implants provide a very natural look and feel to your dentures.
- Patients can chew and speak with the confidence that their dentures will never slip out of place.
- By performing the function of a tooth root, dental implants prevent the jawbone atrophy that accompanies long-term tooth loss. This not only maintains a youthful appearance but also preserves the health of your jaw.
How Long Do Dentures Last?
Whether you choose a removable appliance or implant-supported dentures, it is important to understand that all types of tooth restorations eventually require replacement. We use high-quality materials to craft your dentures and replacement teeth. These materials are highly durable and resistant to damage and stains. Unfortunately, they can eventually appear worn. In addition, the fit of your dentures may require improvement. For these reasons, patients typically need new dentures every 10 to 15 years.
Dental implants, on the other hand, can last a lifetime with proper care of your natural teeth, restorations, gums, and other structures of your mouth.
It is common for patients to require denture repair or relining from time to time. These adjustments can improve the fit of traditional dentures in response to the natural changes in the mouth that affect the gums and dental arch as a result of tooth loss.
Our dentist performs basic denture repairs at our Red Bank practice, serving patients in Monmouth County and across New Jersey. A more complicated repair or relining will be sent to our trusted local lab so we can improve the fit of your dentures and the overall comfort and function of your mouth.
