There are a number of reasons why you may have lost some or all of your natural teeth and are needing a replacement solution. At Wasilla Dental Center we have you covered. Our dentists will work with you to meet your needs, whether for a partial or full denture. Dentures can replace your natural teeth and improve your quality of life by making both eating and speaking substantially easier, not to mention your beautiful smile can be restored.
Call 376-5315 today with questions about dentures or to schedule your consultation.
At Wasilla Dental Center we pride ourselves in being the only clinic in the Mat-Su with an in-house lab. To some, this term may not bring about the excitement that we feel, so let us explain!
Our in-house lab specializes in all things dentures. We take care of everything from start to finish, right here in our office. The benefit being that we cut out the middleman and the time it would take to outsource your dentures, partial dentures or even repairs. At Wasilla Dental Center we take care of all your denture needs both exceptionally and expediently.

Dentures can be made to look like your natural teeth. There may be only a small change in how you look. Full dentures may even give you a better smile. Dentures also support the cheeks and lips so the face muscles do not sag and make you look older.
Conventional Complete Dentures
A conventional complete denture is made and placed in your mouth after the teeth are taken out and the tissues have healed. Healing may take several months. The base of the upper denture covers the palate (the roof of the mouth). When the base of the upper denture rests against the gums and palate, it makes a seal to hold the denture in place.
Implant-Supported Complete Dentures
A complete denture may also be attached to dental implants, which provide a more secure fit. Implants are posts that are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw. Properly placed implants make the denture stable and can help reduce bone loss.

Some patients may have the option to get immediate dentures. These dentures are made before the remaining teeth are removed. Once the denture has been made at our in-house lab and is ready for you at the office, the dentist removes your teeth and the denture is placed right away. With immediate dentures, the denture wearer does not have to go without teeth during the healing time. Once healing is complete, the dentures may need to be adjusted or relined. On the very rare occasion, a new denture will need to be made.
