Dentures Can Address a Variety of Needs
Sporadic Tooth Loss
If you have suffered tooth loss in different areas, a partial denture can fill gaps and complete your smile.
Localized Tooth Loss
People with consecutive tooth loss (missing several teeth in a row) can benefit from a custom partial denture.
Complete Tooth Loss
Patients who have lost all of their teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both can restore their smile with a full denture.
Infected or Damaged Teeth
Left untreated, tooth decay and damaged teeth can take a serious toll on your appearance and oral health. If your teeth are too compromised to be restored, a denture can replace them.

"The Most Comfortable and Relaxed Dental Visit I've Ever Experienced..."
Thank you Beaufort River Dental, Dr. Babb & Staff for the most comfortable and relaxed dental visit that I’ve ever experienced! Whether a routine clean to more complex procedures, I’ve been overly pleased with Dr. Babb’s attention to detail and perfection. A relaxing environment with a friendly, professional staff that is extremely considerate of my dental anxiety. We highly recommend!
It is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Babb and his staff! They are all very nice and have great attitudes. I recently had veneers put on my front 2 teeth by Dr. Babb and Andrea, and I can't even tell that they aren't real. Better yet, my wife was amazed at the quality of work and how well the color matched my natural teeth. Very good work from the entire staff, I will definitely be going back to Beaufort River Dental!View On Google

Types of Dentures
Full Traditional Dentures
A full denture consists of a gum-colored acrylic base with artificial teeth. These removable dentures rest on the gums and are held in place by a combination of suction and dental adhesives.
Partial dentures are an excellent option for those with some remaining healthy teeth. We provide partials made with Valplast®, a natural-looking material designed to achieve a snug fit among remaining teeth. Partials stay in place without the need for metal clasps.
Dental implants are prosthetic tooth roots that not only hold dentures firmly in place at all times, but also prevent the jawbone recession that happens in the absence of tooth roots. For the right candidates, implant dentures provide virtually the same level of function as natural teeth.
What About Implant Dentures?
Those who choose implant-supported dentures can expect a longer timeline. Dental implants will be placed into the jaw during an oral surgery appointment. Once placed, dental implants must integrate with the bone tissue over the course of three to six months before they can support a restoration. In the meantime, you will be provided with a temporary denture.
When the dental implants have completely integrated, abutments (connector devices) will be attached to each implant. These extend slightly above the gum line and serve as anchors for your new denture. Once the gums have healed, your dentist can begin crafting your denture.
