Dentures are a declining need in our society due to advancements in dentistry such as dental implants and preventive periodontal care. Moreover, with modern dental materials and techniques, we see more adults keeping most of their teeth for a lifetime.
However, the art of making a well-crafted, removable dental appliance is not lost at Wood Creek Dental. It is our goal to make the most natural looking and comfortable removable dentures possible. At our Greenville and Landrum offices, which serve patients throughout the Upstate, SC area, one of the great added techniques available is to use mini-implants or conventional implants to obtain the most secure, most natural, and most comfortable fit imaginable.

A partial denture is a removable prosthesis used to replace several missing teeth. The denture rests on the gums and is supported by clasps that attach to remaining teeth.
While partial dentures may have some movement during function, the team at Wood Creek Dental works with each patient to achieve a fit that is as comfortable and secure as possible. We also focus on creating partial dentures that closely match the size, shape, and color of existing teeth for the most natural-looking results.
Complete dentures can include a full set of upper dentures, lower dentures, or both. Complete dentures are an option for replacing all of the teeth in the upper jaw, lower jaw, or the patient’s entire mouth. Complete dentures rest on the gums and are supported by the underlying bone. To maintain a secure and comfortable fit, complete dentures may need to be refitted every few years.
The team at our Greenville or Landrum office can help patients determine if complete dentures are the right treatment option for their dental needs.
Implant-retained dentures utilize dental implants to achieve maximum support, providing increased comfort and functionality for denture wearers. The removable dentures easily attach to the implant posts to create a natural look and feel.
For patients with adequate bone density, traditional or mini dental implants can be used to create the support system for the dentures. Our dentists will help you decide which implant option is best for you.
