"Very nice, friendly folks at Martin Dentistry. Although, going to the dentist isn’t always fun - it’s helpful to go to a place where they are thorough, caring, and friendly.Dr. Lindsey Garrison & her dental hygienists have been so nice and have explained everything to me very thoroughly. I appreciate them and all of their hard work!!"- A.D. / Yelp / Sep 06, 2022

"Such a nice office! I love the new building - everything is clean and beautiful, and it's in a great convenient location. My dental hygienist Becki is AWESOME! She is so sweet and remembers things that we discuss about my family and work, even though she only sees me every 6 months. She has an absolutely wonderful bedside manner, which helps calm me down (I know dentist visits can be stressful for a lot of people!). Also, even though I'm in my 30s, I feel like she is the first person to actually take time to show me HOW to appropriately floss, and my teeth/gums have gotten healthier over the years of seeing her! The doctors explain exactly what they are doing, what they are seeing, and what their recommendations are. I am always seen within just a few minutes of arriving for my appointment. Fantastic dentist office!!"- B.L. / Google / Jan 07, 2023

What to Expect
Removable dentures are usually completed in 2-5 appointments with the dentist. Once the mouth is prepared for the dentures, the dentist will take molds of the patient’s mouth to send to the dental laboratory. While the custom dentures are being made, the patient will be given a set of temporary dentures to wear. Once the dentures are returned to the dentist, the patient will return to have their new dentures fitted and learn about proper denture care. The patient may need to return in 2-4 weeks so the dentist can re-check the fit of the dentures and the patient’s bite.
Removable dentures will need to be cleaned frequently, following the care instructions provided by the dentist. With proper care, removable dentures usually last 2-10 years. Patients should continue to schedule annual dental exams so the dentist can check the gums, any remaining teeth, and the condition of the dentures.
