If left untreated, partial or full tooth loss may not only affect your self-confidence, but can also increase the risk of other health and nutritional problems. Dentures are removable prosthetic appliances that replace missing teeth. Dentures are carefully crafted to resemble the natural look of your teeth and match your smile’s appearance.

Full dentures are worn by patients whose teeth are missing in either the top or bottom arch. These dentures cover the entire upper or lower jaw. There are three types of full dentures:

  • Conventional dentures: We recommend conventional dentures for patients with completely healed gums. They can be put in place eight weeks after teeth extraction. Recovery time varies for each person, and Drs. Catherine Young or Jared Young will decide the exact time for the denture installation. The patient should maintain their dental hygiene habits and healthy diet during this time to assist with the healing process.
  • Immediate dentures: To prevent any discomfort as a result of living without teeth, immediate dentures are a great option. Patients are able to wear them right after the tooth is removed. However, since the jaw continuously adapts during the healing process, regular adjustments will need to be made. We recommend that immediate dentures be worn as a temporary treatment until the patient is able to wear conventional dentures.
  • Overdentures: We aim to save as much as we can of your natural teeth, regardless of their condition because they help the jawbone stay healthy and provide support to your dentures. The overdenture is used to accommodate existing teeth.

Partial dentures are offered as well and used when a few natural teeth are still in place. Partial dentures are appropriate for patients who need dentures on a certain part of their mouth. Patients are able to remove partial dentures for extra comfort. These are fitted to existing teeth or implants with precision attachments.

A big shout out to the staff at bright young smiles. I woke up in pain and I had not been to their office in 7 years, but they got me in same day. Dr. Gaffney was amazing. He referred me to the best Endodontics office in Boca. I will always use Bright Young Smile for the rest of my life. Thank you

Going to the dentist has been something I try to put off in the past. However, whenever I come to Bright Young Smiles I can stay there for hours— literally! Dr. Catherine Young and her assistant Rose spent several hours on my latest dental work, filling in cavities and adding bonding. I couldn’t be happier with the results, I feel so much better about my smile now! They made the whole experience extremely comfortable for me, offering a blanket and letting me catch up on my latest Netflix show. They utilize the latest tech gadgets on the market for dentistry so you don’t feel like all these crazy tools are in your mouth. Which in my opinion usually tends to feel uncomfortable hence why I’ve avoided the dentist in the past. Dr. Catherine Young also focuses on cosmetic dentistry and was able to help correct the balance of my smile via lip fillers. She has an artistic eye and takes the time to really focus and perfect where she is injecting in order to make your smile perfectly balanced. I’ve had filler in the past and usually it’s a quick appointment where I felt that they didn’t take the time to consider the structure of my face. Dr. Young was the complete opposite and was so gentle whenever she would inject. Would highly recommend this procedure to be done if you want the perfect smile!

When my friend recommended Bright Young Smiles I never in a million years expected to have the experience My son and I had with them. Dr. Catherine Young has not only helped me with my TMJ problems but I swear to you she has a halo on her head. She is not just really good at what she does but she is so compassionate and kind and held my hand while I was going through a difficult time. Its not hard to see why everyone in her staff is happy in the office. Everyone is very friendly and want to make you feel very comfortable while you’re there. My whole family will start going there now. :)
