Custom dentures can be a great choice if you want to replace several missing teeth. Dentures can restore your smile and help you eat and speak with more confidence. Our team of dentists can create either partial or full removable dentures for residents in Moodus, CT. Full dentures replace your entire lower arch, upper arch, or both compared to partial dentures that use your remaining teeth as support. At East Haddam Dental Associates, we can help you determine whether partial or full dentures fit your goals, and then have your dentures made custom to look beautiful. Make an appointment with one of our talented dentists to get more information about removable dentures.
"I have been a patient of East Haddam Dental for very many years. I have at all times been treated courteously and professionally. Dr. Stofko and now Dr. Goldman have tended to my teeth with a maximum of skill and a minimum of pain. Dr. Pear has also pitched in in their absence when I had an emergency that could not wait. I have never had an issue with the front desk staff. When I have a problem with a tooth they are always sympathetic and do their best to get me an early appointment to get it fixed. As for wait time, my experience is that I'm usually seated within a few minutes of my appointment. On those rare occasions where I did have to wait it was only for 15 minutes or so. I always figured the Doctor was backed up because someone needed extra help and I was just happy not to be that person. Needless to say I am pleased with the quality of care I've received and intend to stay with East Haddam Dental for the foreseeable future."- T.B. / Yelp / Jul 28, 2018

"I love East Haddam Dental Associates so much, I’m not sure where to begin. Let’s start with the office staff; Always welcoming and friendly the staff makes me feel comfortable, just like I am at home. When I have appointments I usually arrive at least 45 minutes early simply because I like how the staff treats me. The lady behind the desk actually talks to me as if she likes me. Because 6 months between cleanings is so long, I try to stop by the office for a casual visit in between appointments, and even though they are surprised to see me they let me sit in the waiting room and just relax for a few minutes. The dentist, Dr. Goldman is always very nice and informative. I’m surprised by how much he knows about teeth and the dangers of tooth decay. I call him Josh because he also made me feel right at home and as if I was a friend. He provided excellent service and I will be coming here for all my future dental needs!"- S. / Google / May 27, 2021

Best Candidates for Dentures
You could be a good candidate for removable dentures if you are missing most or all of your teeth, but your gums and jawbone are still healthy. If you have natural teeth, they can either be removed if you want a full denture or you can keep them as support for a partial. At your initial consultation, we will assess your oral health and explain your choices to fit your budget and needs.
What To Expect
In some cases, we will perform an extraction on any remaining teeth before impressions are taken, which will help customize your dentures. Partial dentures will be colored to blend with your remaining teeth for an attractive finish. As soon as your custom dentures are made, we will fit them so they are secure and comfortable. We will also talk about how to clean and care for your dentures for optimal oral health.
It may require time before your dentures feel natural; however, it should become easier to speak and eat normally. If the dentures feel loose, come back to East Haddam Dental Associates to get your dentures re-fitted. You will need to clean your dentures with a toothbrush two times daily. At night or whenever you take out your dentures, they need to be soaked to prevent them from drying out. You should continue to attend cleanings and exams at East Haddam Dental Associates so we can examine the fit and wear of your restoration and the overall health of your mouth. We will discuss when your dentures need to be replaced or repaired; however, with ideal treatment, your custom dentures can last for several years.
If you are using insurance, some of the expenses of your custom dentures will usually be paid for. We will talk to your dental insurance to understand your benefits and personal costs. At your initial consultation, we will develop your treatment so your dentures match your budget and needs. For help making your dentures affordable with or without dental insurance, East Haddam Dental Associates takes several payment methods, including low-interest medical financing.
