Dentures and Partials in Yuma, AZ

Schedule an Appointment

When you’re a child, losing a tooth is an exciting prospect, but once our permanent teeth come in, losing a tooth is definitely not a cause for celebration. Losing several teeth, whether due to age, illness, decay, or other issues, can be devastating. While dental implants are an excellent restoration option, they can be costly – especially when dealing with several missing teeth.

Dentures offer an affordable alternative that can restore your ability to talk and chew and give you an improved aesthetic after tooth loss. Whether you need partial dentures to replace sections of missing teeth or full dentures to replace an entire arch, our Yuma dental office is ready to help.

Partial Dentures

If you still have some of your teeth but have experienced some tooth loss, you may opt for removable partial dentures for your upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. Partial dentures are replacement teeth with a pink, gum-colored foundation, usually attached to a metal base. The metal base may include clips and clasps that fasten onto and around your remaining teeth, offering additional stability for your denture.

Full Dentures

If you have lost most or all of your teeth in a single arch, full dentures can replace these teeth. Full dentures are usually made of a pink acrylic to match your gums, with prosthetic teeth to replace your natural teeth. Full dentures are designed to be held in your mouth through natural suction. Like partial dentures, you can opt for upper, lower, or a set of both arches for full dentures.
Implant-Retained Dentures

If you are looking for a more secure solution than traditional dentures, you may want to consider implant-retained dentures as a more cost-effective solution than a full set of implant-supported crowns.

Implant-retained dentures consist of specially designed posts attached to implants surgically placed in your jaw. The denture structure snaps onto these posts, allowing you to talk and eat with more confidence. The dentures can be removed at night for cleaning.

Caring for Dentures

When you first get your dentures, Dr. Carroll may advise you to leave them in while you sleep. This is to identify any sore spots so the denture can be properly adjusted to fit your mouth. Once the fit is assured, you should take your dentures out at night to clean them and allow your gums to breathe.

When cleaning your dentures, make sure you are using cleaning products specifically designed for denture use. Normal toothbrushes and toothpaste can scratch or damage dentures. When the dentures are not in your mouth, keep them wet by soaking them in a container of cool or lukewarm water. Allowing them to dry or using hot water can cause the dentures to warp, sometimes beyond repair.

When handling your dentures, it’s best to do so over a folded towel or a basin full of cool water. Dentures are fragile and can chip or crack if you drop them onto a hard surface. If your denture becomes damaged, call our office as soon as possible. Cracked or damaged dentures can be a magnet for bacteria and can cause sores on your gums.

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

I was terrified of the dentist from past bad experience. My daughter had a traumatic experience at a local dentist as well. We have both started seeing Dr. Carroll and have had the most comfortable, reassuring experience. They are kind, knowledgeable and patient!! Thank you Dr. Carroll and Staff!! Second visit - 2/4/16 - Deep Clean Procedure and a Wisdom tooth extraction - Again, I can't say enough about my visit. The staff from the moment you walk in the door are professional and friendly. My procedure was 99.5% pain free and the extraction was 100% pain free. I was given information every step of the way and was made to feel comfortable at all times. This is an office with compassion, caring and understanding. I highly recommend this practice. I can't say thank you enough for the positive experience and dental work. Thank you!!

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"

Sam Carroll , DMD, is knowledgable about all the latest and most effective dental procedures and treatment to make you SMILE... I have seen a caring and gentle approach with the very young patients ( My Grandaughter) and the concern he had with my 90 year old Father. Very comfortable yet professional atmosphere at all times!
