A new set of dentures from Smiles of Tulsa in Tulsa, OK could have you smiling in no time. Losing teeth can be stressful and living without a full set of teeth can cause unnecessary embarrassment. We can create a set of dentures for you and your lifestyle, whether you need a partial denture, a complete denture, or you dream of a more permanent and personalized denture.

Complete Dentures


Whether this is your first set of complete dentures or you’re ready to upgrade to a new pair, we can help. These days, dentures look more natural and are more comfortable to wear than ever before. It’s normal for dentures to feel a bit awkward for the first few weeks, but you’ll soon be eating, speaking, and grinning with more confidence. If you should experience excessive irritation, we’re happy to examine the denture and may suggest a relining, so they fit better.

Partial Dentures


If you’re one of our lucky patients who only need one or a few teeth replaced, we can fit you for a partial denture. Partial dentures are usually made from a combination of metal and acrylic. This way, your partial dentures are strong, thin, and match the color of your surrounding teeth. Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS will decide on the best composition for your partial denture based on your specific needs and anatomy. A partial denture will also help distribute your chewing force more evenly which will help your digestion and nutrition.

Implant Retained Dentures


Implant retained dentures are fixed to strategically placed dental implants, resulting in a denture that is effectively permanent. As little as four implants can support an entire arch of prosthetic teeth, depending on the state of the bony ridge of your jaw. The implants are made of titanium and carefully placed by Corbyn VanBrunt, DDS in a safe and routine surgery. Because the implants are made of titanium, they’ll easily fuse to and even strengthen your jawbone as it heals. The result is a denture that is securely fixed in place, that looks and feels just like your natural teeth.

Patients who opt for implant retained dentures never have to worry about an embarrassing slip while eating, or unclear speech due to ill-fitting dentures. While some patients may not initially have adequate jawbone mass to support the implants, we may be able to use bone grafts to improve the structure.

Dentures to Implant Bridge


The dentures-to-implant bridge is a relatively new dental treatment option that may be suitable for patients with fairly severe dentures and implant-supported crowns. The dentures-to-implant bridge procedure involves removing the original prosthetic devices and placing them on a temporary, removable bridge over the top of all remaining teeth to allow time for bone mineralization and bone grafting procedures.

Cosmetic Dentures


Cosmetic dentures provide an exciting opportunity to craft your dream smile. Whether you want a set of dentures that are perfectly pearly and straight, or you want to retain some of your unique characteristics such as a gap or overlapping teeth, we can fabricate that with cosmetic dentures. Using advanced computer imaging technology, you can effectively shop for the exact smile you want. You’ll have your choice of gum shades, tooth shapes, and alignment. You can even bring in an old photo so we can recreate the smile you’ve always loved.

Frequently Asked Questions


Smiles of Tulsa has years of experience supplying complete and partial dentures. We can help you get the perfect fit, whether you are an existing wearer or if this is your first-time wearing dentures, and answer any questions you may have.

How to clean dentures


Dentures should be cleaned after every meal and put in a container of water or soaked in denture cleaning products at night. It is crucial you don't let your dentures dry out as this can cause them to lose their shape. If your dentures warp, they will not fit properly and can be uncomfortable to wear and cause irritation or pain to your gums and other teeth.

Whenever you are not wearing your dentures, be sure to keep them in a safe place covered in water. You can treat dentures just like your natural teeth, you can care for your dentures by brushing them daily to remove food particles and plaque. When brushing your dentures be sure to also include brushing and cleaning your oral cavity thoroughly including your: gums, cheeks, tongue, and the roof of your mouth.

What celebrities have dentures?


While many celebrities opt for dental veneers - thin plastic shells that are cemented to the front surface of the teeth, to restore their teeth and give them a beautiful and perfect-looking smile, many celebrities also have dentures. A few of the celebrities that have dentures include: Emma Watson, Ben Aflleck, Demi Moore, Nicole Polizzi, and Jon Bon Jovi. In the past dentures were bulky and did not look natural. Today, dentures are made to resemble natural teeth. They look so real, that even the rich and famous are choosing to use them!

What are dentures made of?


Dentures can be made from various materials, depending on the type and design.

Acrylic resin is commonly used for the base of both full and partial dentures. It's lightweight, durable, and can be tinted to match the natural gum color.
Porcelain is often used to create the artificial teeth in dentures due to its durability and natural appearance. It closely resembles natural tooth enamel in texture and color.

In some cases, metal frameworks may be used to provide additional strength and stability, especially for partial dentures. Common metals used include cobalt-chromium and titanium.

Flexible denture materials, such as thermoplastic resins like Valplast, offer increased comfort and a more natural fit by adapting to the contours of the mouth.

The choice of material depends on factors such as durability, aesthetics, comfort, and the patient's specific needs and preferences.

What is the best denture adhesive?


According to University of Michigan trials, Secure® Denture Adhesive achieved an 80% satisfaction rate among users for both upper and lower dentures, with 72% of participants rating it as superior to other brands such as Fixodent, Super Poligrip, Effergrip, Orafix, and Sea-Bond.

Choosing the best denture adhesive depends on individual preferences, as well as specific needs such as comfort, durability, and effectiveness in securing dentures in place. Popular denture adhesive brands offer various formulations such as creams, powders, and strips.

How long do dentures last?


The lifespan of dentures can vary depending on several factors, including the quality of materials used, oral hygiene habits, and changes in the mouth over time. On average, dentures can last anywhere from five to 10 years or more with proper care and maintenance. However, they may require adjustments, repairs, or replacement over time due to normal wear and tear, changes in the jawbone structure, or damage from accidents or misuse. Regular dental check-ups and proper cleaning can help extend the lifespan of dentures and ensure optimal oral health.
