What are dentures?
Dentures act as a replacement for missing teeth and restore the appearance of your smile.
Unlike other types of restorative dental treatments (like implants and veneers), dentures are removable. They can be taken out and placed back into your mouth, as needed. Dentures also provide support to the lips and face so you can eat and drink with confidence.
When you work with our expert prosthodontists and lab technicians, your dentures will look just like natural teeth.
Types of dentures
At Advanced Dentistry, we offer three types of dentures in Portland — full dentures, partial dentures, and implant overdentures.
What are the best dentures to get? Find out during your consultation with one of our experienced prosthodontists.
A full set of dentures, commonly referred to as a full plate, replaces all of your natural teeth. Prior to the placement of a full set of dentures, any remaining teeth must be removed.
During the healing process, , we place temporary dentures to ensure you maintain a natural smile and never go without teeth.
If you have existing dentures that you’re unhappy with, we can fabricate a new denture that will fit well, look natural, and improve your ability to eat the foods you enjoy.
Partial dentures sit on a metal framework that attaches to several of your remaining teeth.
Occasionally, dental crowns will be placed on your teeth to provide improved support and stability for your dentures.
Partial dentures offer a removable alternative to a dental bridge and can add back support to the face and lips when missing front teeth.
Overdentures are a modern method for securing full or partial dentures in your mouth to dental implants.
Overdentures use at least 2 dental implants as attachment points to provide support for your denture. This method ensures the denture doesn’t fall out or come off unexpectedly. It also keeps the denture from sitting on your gums and improves chewing effectiveness. These dentures are far more comfortable and secure when compared to traditional full dentures.
Overdentures can replace any number of missing teeth, including all the teeth in your upper/lower jaw.

I came in for a chip on my front tooth and Dr. Manning was able to squeeze me in last minute to assure I was wedding ready. Her fine attention to detail left me feeling comfortable and at ease, knowing I was in great hands.
