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
"I’ve been going here for about a year and had multiple cleanings, one crown and one replacement filling done. The staff are great and they offer nitrous gas for procedures at an additional cost which I appreciate. I’m very happy with the work I’ve had done and I did not have discomfort for very long after my procedures."- S.J. / Yelp / May 22, 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.
