Dentures definitely have their place. What you find as you get into your early sixties is that a lot of people have been to other dentists and have lost teeth for an array of reasons, and they show up with what might be termed “a mess“ or “a train wreck of confusion“ and they're trying to figure out how to get back to some sense of themselves—of pretty, of handsome. When we've lost teeth in strategically important places, sometimes we have to move in to dentures in one way or another. The baby boomers, some of the millennials, and the older folks, they're really not interested in grandma's dentures or great-grandma's dentures in the jar.
We can achieve with verywell made dentures beauty and solutions that are akin to crown and bridge. Something that might cost $15,000, $20,000 dollars in implants, we can get that solution in dentures for fractions of that cost. It's a great tool, especially when you've strategically saved some teeth underneath there and we end up talking to people about over dentures. Because dentures settle up and back and you can make a denture on the cheap but if it settles up and back, which is typically the way bone resorbs back, they're going to have to redo that in three to six years, depending on the force. If you can strategically save some teeth or rest them on implants, that denture solution can last 10 years. A little more planning, a little more talking, but it's another part of the art form of taking care of people. It's not a ... in the old days, it used to be,“We got no choices and this is the train wreck end of the road and now you got to use this train wreck solution.“ It doesn't have to be that way anymore.

Receiving Your Modern Dentures
Dentures today are long-lasting, beautiful combinations of technology and art. They are completely different from the dentures you might associate with Grandma or Grandpa. Even if you’re a grandparent yourself, Dr. Farrell’s dentures will provide you with a strong, youthful-looking smile.
Dentures greatly help your oral and overall health by:
- Helping you chew foods that you couldn’t before
- Aiding your digestion since you can properly chew
- Preventing tooth loss, shifting teeth, or other dental issues from damaging your existing teeth due to missing teeth in your smile
Dr. Farrell can even attach your dentures to dental implants for the best security possible. Ask about this option at your next visit.
Providing Comfort During Your Treatment
If you’re seeking dentures to replace existing damaged or decayed teeth, Dr. Farrell will gently remove the failing teeth while ensuring you’re completely comfortable. He offers safe dental sedation so you can remain awake but free of pain or nervousness.
You could be missing all your teeth and simply wish to have a brand-new smile, which Dr. Farrell will quickly provide.
Both processes begin the same way. Dr. Jerry Farrell examines your mouth, takes digital X-rays to get an accurate look at your mouth’s condition, then determines which treatments are right for you. If you’re a good candidate for dentures, he’ll discuss with you how they are made, and the best methods for cleaning them so they remain in great shape.
