Estero Bay Dental uses the highest quality materials and precision fitting techniques to provide comfortable, natural looking dentures. We also offer implant-supported dentures for patients who prefer a more stable replacement option than traditional dentures provide.
Estero Bay Dental offers the full range of options for patients who are missing multiple teeth. Traditional, removable dentures remain one of the most common and affordable options for patients who have lost all their teeth. We use only the highest quality materials and are meticulous in ensuring a precision fit for optimal comfort and function.
We also offer implant-supported, also called snap-in dentures as another option for replacing all teeth on the upper or lower arch. All-on-X, which is a permanent full arch bridge anchored to implants is another option we offer. Dr. Arellano and the Estero Bay Dental team are here to help you understand your options and select the one that best fits your unique needs.

Dentures can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth or several missing teeth on an arch. Like a bridge, partial dentures rest on surrounding teeth to fill in the gaps where one or more teeth are missing. But unlike a bridge, partial dentures are fully removable by the wearer. Partials are affordable alternatives to other types of dental prosthetics and are custom-made to blend in with each patient’s natural teeth. It takes a little time to adapt to new partials, but many people find that they reclaim much of their original function and aesthetics with partial dentures in place.
Full and partial dentures require gentle care and frequent cleaning. Once you get your new denture, you’ll need to:
You may be a candidate for full dentures if you are missing or need extractions for an entire arch (that is all your upper or lower teeth).
Partial dentures may be for you if you have one or more missing teeth, and the space they once filled is surrounded by other teeth or permanent restorations.
To find out more about which type of denture is right for you, schedule a consultation with us.
If you decide to get a full or partial denture, the first step will be to make an impression of the area your denture will fill. The impression will be sent to a dental lab, where a technician will fabricate a custom denture that includes a gum-colored base that will fit securely over your gums.
In the case of a partial denture, a metal framework will be used to attach your new partial to clasps that will have been added to the surrounding natural teeth to ensure a secure fit.
Yes. Good oral health is still important – even if you have a few missing teeth. In addition to caring for your new dental prosthetic, you’ll also need to brush your gums and tongue twice daily to stimulate circulation and remove bacteria that could cause gum disease. Continue seeing your dentist twice yearly for exams and cleanings, and be sure to bring your partial dentures along to each visit. After a few years, you may find that your partial needs to be rebased to better fit the changes to the bone structure in your mouth.
